This majestic and very spacious 236 sqm home as been partially restored and includes three bedrooms, two unfinished rooms, adjacent garden areas, and a nearby 1,171 sqm olive grove. This is a rare and exceptional opportunity to own an amazing traditional home in the much-sought-after village of Douliana.
The home is situated on a small lane in Douliana, just a two-minute walk to the village centre. The plot is 489 sqm with nice rear and side garden areas plus a non-buildable 1,171 sqm olive grove with 27 productive and well-kept trees accessible by road (approx 800m) and also on foot (approx 400m). Parking is adjacent to the home and a part of the adjacent side garden could also be cleared for parking space.
The home was originally built by the owner's great grandfather and the restoration has been done to retain the fine traditional features including massive stone arches and the somewhat quirky style of older homes. At the moment, the main structure has been restored with two bedrooms and a mezzanine bedroom, a single shower room and a large utility room.
As can be seen on the floor plans in the photo gallery, there are two additional rooms on the north side of the home that have not been renovated. The ground floor room can be connected to the sitting room/lounge by re-opening the old doorway. And as noted on the plan, one of the terraces on the first floor could be closed in to allow internal access to both of the first floor rooms (the one that is finished as well as the presently unfinished room).
The home has central heating installed, plus a large solar panel for hot water. The adjacent garden areas are perfect for veggies or herbs and even some fruit or citrus trees, and the olive grove will provide a more than ample supply of your own virgin olive oil.
In summary, this is a superb opportunity for either a permanent residence in Crete or an easy to lock-up and leave holiday home. It also offers excellent rental opportunities due to its excellent location within the village and the proximity to Vamos and Gavalochori plus the fine beaches and amenities at Almerida and Kalives. The home must be seen to be appreciated ... and to be understood!
