This lovely 90 sqm one-bedroom home has been carefully restored and offers a wonderful opportunity to live (or holiday) in a quiet and peaceful traditional village yet with all the modern amenities. Kalamitsi Alexandrou is centrally located and just a short drive from the beaches at Georgioupolis, the fine tavernas, amenities, and of course the river at Vrysses, and all the traditional and cultural events in Vamos. The national road leading to both Chania and Rethymno is just a three kilometer drive away.
Restoration of this home just next to the Kalamitsi Alexandrou plateia was completed in late 2015. The pleasant 30 sqm front courtyard is bounded by a stone wall and a well-crafted tall wooden gate. The flower bed just inside the gate offers a colorful and warm welcome to the home and there is plenty of private space in the courtyard for a morning coffee, al fresco dining and a glass of wine in the cool Cretan evenings.
The ground floor comprises a very spacious living and dining area as well as a modern, convenient, and fully-equipped kitchen. The sitting room has a very efficient word-burning soba that also offers an oven for those special meals! There is also a guest toilet and an under-stairs storage area.
A broad staircase leads to the first floor with a spacious bedroom and a nice modern shower. French doors lead to a private veranda offering excellent views to the White Mountains as well as the surrounding countryside and the village plateia below.
The selling price includes everything in the photos … yes, everything … including the sculptures and paintings and artwork in the niches! The owner will also install an AC unit in the location chosen by the new owner. Satellite TV has been installed, a solar panel with electric immersion heater are also provided. High-speed internet can easily be connected.
As you may notice from the photos in the gallery, the home exudes traditional Cretan charm with the restored wood-beam ceilings, niches, and stonework. And, for non-traditional comfort, high-quality double-glazed aluminium windows and doors have been fitted for better insulation with no annual varnishing work!
The broad village plateia offers plenty of space for parking as well as relaxing in the winter sun (when the trees in the plateia are cut back) and in the cool summer shade.
This home is a truly unique opportunity to enjoy your new life in Crete at a very good price!
The selling price is exclusive of property transfer tax, legal expenses and agency fees.
