PoolYes - private pool
This well-designed 122 sqm three-bedroom villa is situated about one kilometer from Vamos … a two minute drive or very pleasant walk to the village centre. The home is set well back from the village road and surrounded by olive trees with the pool situated at the rear. Superb sea and mountain views from the home and the pool terrace!
The home was completed in 2005 by a very reputable local builder. Entry to the 1,400 sqm plot is via a gated and graveled driveway from the village road. There is plenty of space for parking. Four steps lead from driveway up to the large wrap-around terrace and to the main entry door under the spacious covered terrace and seating area. As can be seen on the floor plans in the gallery, the terrace encircles virtually the entire home and offers plenty of space for outdoor enjoyment in the sun as well as the shade!
The main entry door leads directly into the lounge and dining area with its high vaulted wood-beam ceiling and a mezzanine over the kitchen. French doors from the lounge open to the covered entry terrace as well as to the front terrace both offering spectacular mountain views. There is an energy-efficient closed wood-burner in the lounge that comfortably heats the entire home and there is a full oil-fired central heating system installed with radiators in every room.
A wood staircase leads to the mezzanine, currently used as a study. The large and fully-equipped kitchen is situated to the rear and separated from the dining area by a lovely arch. A doorway leads from the rear of the kitchen to a good-sized pantry and laundry room and thence out directly to the rear terrace overlooking the pool.
A hallway off the dining area leads to two double bedrooms, each with plenty of wardrobe space. [One bedroom is presently used as a music room as you may notice from the photos.] Each bedroom has French doors leading to the rear sea-facing terrace overlooking the pool. There is also a large family bathroom with a full-length tub.
An external staircase from the entry terrace leads to a large roof terrace and a separate third bedroom complete with floor-to-ceiling wardrobes and its own shower room. This room could easily be converted into a self contained holiday let should the new owners desire. The views from this area are simply majestic and of course, forever unobstructed!
The 32 sqm pool with its stone-paved terrace and pleasant seating area offers a very private space to enjoy Crete's wonderful climate. A further garden area is situated beyond the pool and has been planted with a variety of fruit trees and flowering shrubs … again more outdoor space to enjoy!
