About Property

Villa Minos ... a property in such a dream location does not often come on the market! This beautiful 126 sqm two-bedroom stone home is situated on a 682 sqm plot high above the village of Nio Chorio, often referred to as the Tuscany of Crete. The home is just a short drive from the tourist hub of Kalives with its fine beaches and wide range of amenities and offers fantastic views to the sea as well as the White Mountains.

The entry opens to the spacious open plan sitting and dining area with a traditional corner fireplace. The large and fully-equipped kitchen is separated from the sitting area by a traditional Cretan arch. French doors from the dining area lead to a lovely covered and very private sea-facing veranda with two stone arches and offering serene views … the perfect place for morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. [This area could of course be converted into a third bedroom or study.] A doorway leads from the dining area to the covered side veranda that wraps around behind the home and to the front entry. There is also a toilet and shower room on the entry level.
A lovely wooden staircase leads to the first floor with two large bedrooms sharing a full bathroom. Each bedroom has French doors opening on to a spacious covered veranda offering beautiful views to the sea at Kalives as well as to the surrounding countryside. The rear covered veranda offers excellent mountain views.
The property is completely bounded by a stone wall and fencing and has been carefully maintained and landscaped. The owners have made a beautiful shaded area for al fresco dining and the adjacent traditional barbecue makes food preparation as well as eating a pleasure! They have also planted a wide variety of flowering plants and shrubs around the home plus a variety of fruit trees including fig, pear, plum, lemon, nectarine, pomegranate, lime, and loquat. And there are two beautiful old olive trees as well!
To the rear of the home is a large storeroom housing the central heating boiler as well as the clothes washer. There is plenty of space on the plot for a pool or spa should the new owner desire.
Additional features include air-conditioning in both bedrooms, wood-beam ceilings, large wardrobes in each bedroom, private parking, satellite dish, OTE landline telephone and fast Internet, central heating, solar panel, and traditional wood doors and double-glazed windows, automatic watering system, and more.
There is a further building density (and adequate space) for a 141 sqm home or rental unit should the new owner desire.
The selling price includes all white goods, as well as the very high quality furniture and lighting fixtures. Ready to move in and enjoy from the first day!
The selling price is exclusive of property transfer tax, legal expenses and agency fees.
