Great price for a fabulous home!
PoolYes - private pool
This beautiful 213 sqm home is situated just above the popular village of Plaka and offers very inspiring and forever unobstructed views to Souda Bay and the Mediterranean sea. The home has been constructed on three levels with the main living area on the uppermost floor to take full advantage of the views. The lower level is virtually a self-contained two-bedroom apartment with large open area that could be fiited out as a lounge and kitchenette plus a shower room.
Entry to the home is on the middle level with broad tiled staircases leading up to the main living area as well as down to the apartment. The middle level itself comprises two spacious double bedrooms, each with floor-to-ceiling wardrobes and sharing a full family bathroom with a bidet as well. The bedrooms also share a lovely sea-facing covered terrace overlooking the 28 sqm swimming pool and offering fantastic sea views. There is also a smaller single bedroom that could also be used as a hobby room, reading room, or whatever is appropriate to the new owners.
The top floor comprises a well-appointed open plan sitting room, dining area, and a pleasant fully fitted kitchen. The owners have installed a wood-burning stove which is both a very pleasant feature but also very useful in our brief but often cool and damp winters. The views from the entire room toward the sea are spectacular and the broad front veranda is THE place to enjoy the magnificent sunsets! There is also a lovely rear veranda just off the kitchen with pleasant mountain views, simply perfect for morning coffee or tea! Adjacent to the stairway and the kitchen is a toilet and shower room.
The lower level is accessed by the internal staircase but a separate entry could be easily made. There is a large open entry area that could be used as a game room or sitting room and kitchen facilities could be installed if needed. In addition there are two good-sized bedrooms, both with floor-to-ceiling wardrobes and air-conditioning. Our personal suspicion is that the new owner may well be so inundated with requests for visits to this spectacular home that the extra space will be well-used! There is a full shower room on this lower level plus a large storeroom where the clothes washer has been placed along with the central heating plus backup water storage.
The 28-sqm tiled pool is surrounded by a paved and landscaped terrace and offers another pleasant area to enjoy the fine outdoor environment that Crete has to offer. UPDATE: The owners have recently installed privacy screens on the east side of the pool terrace ... photos are included in the gallery.
