About Property

This beautifully restored property was originally the village olive mill.  Now it is a stunning home of 157 sqm with three double bedrooms plus plenty of outdoor space to enjoy the spectacular mountain views in a peaceful location. A newly constructed separate building of 66 sqm is at present used as a workshop and store room. This could easily be converted into a studio apartment.  Also, the house itself has the scope to make a fourth bedroom and bathroom if required.

 * Adjacent to the house is a small plot which is ideal for a pool.  Excellent location being 1 km from the National Road making Chania/Rethymno within easy driving distance and less than 2 km  from the riverside town of Vrysses, with all amenities, and a few minutes drive from Georgioupolis with its fine beaches.

 
The original mill has been converted into light, spacious accommodation with a unique first floor mezzanine.  The property is situated on a corner with access from the village tarmac road directly to the lower covered parking/workshop area which has an external stone staircase leading to the large open rear terrace. The formal entry is on the front of the house via a covered entry terrace leading directly to an  open plan sitting/ dining area with a high wood-beamed pitched ceiling. The mezzanine runs round two sides overlooking the living area.  A striking feature in the living area is hand-crafted and energy-efficient wood burning stove … very useful for our occasionally chilly winter evenings.
 
The kitchen leads off the sitting area and has a recently installed Ikea kitchen with plenty of cupboard and worktop space and stainless -steel sink.  Integrated appliances comprise Neff Oven, Combo microwave, Neff gas hob, Siemens dishwasher, full height fridge/freezer, and extractor fan.  Between the kitchen and stairs is a walk-in pantry.
 
On one side to the back of the living area is the family bathroom which also houses the washing machine and at the side a guest bedroom with wood-beamed ceiling. At the other end of the living space is the master bedroom with full height fitted wardrobe,  ensuite shower room and French doors leading to the rear terrace.
 
A wooden staircase leads to the first floor mezzanine which has a study area (over the kitchen) with fitted bookshelves, storage cupboards and a built-in desk.  Over the master bedroom is the third and largest bedroom with a series of built-in cupboards/wardrobe and a separate walk-in storage room. This bedroom has spectacular views to the east and south. At the opposite end of the mezzanine is a door leading to a roof terrace which could easily be converted to a fourth bedroom (plus en-suite) if required.
 
The external areas of the 357 sqm plot have been utilised to create large paved terraces with low maintenance garden and a Judas and Mulberry tree. A substantial tiled roof pergola runs along the back of the house. Off this area is a small boiler room which also has a sink, storage cupboards and fridge/freezer.  At the back of this is a covered wood store, oil tank and large water tank. Stone steps lead from the terrace to the lower/road level to the double carport, and the new building which can have a variety of uses. 
 
 * The owners are in the process of purchasing the adjacent vacant plot of about 150 sqm. As it is a flat and easily accessable area the installation of a swimming pool could easily be achieved. The additional cost of this land is subject to negotiation.

  • High quality aluminium doors and double-glazed windows with insect screens and security shutters.
