PoolYes - private pool
This very spacious architect-designed contemporary villa is situated midway between the lovely traditional villages of Vamos and Gavalochori and just a short drive to the fine sandy beaches at Kalives and Almerida. There are simply amazing views to the sea and the majestic White Mountains from the home as well as the 46 sqm infinity pool with its large tiled terrace. The villa has been constructed and finished to the very highest standard.
The villa serves as the owner's permanent home during the off-season and has been successfully rented out as a luxury villa rental earning over 5,500 Euro per week in the high season. The owners have registered a 13-week ESL license for their rental business. In addition to an excellent rental income producing investment, the home is also well suited for a luxurious holiday home or permanent residence in Crete.
The 256 sqm home is situated on a plot of about 4,260 sqm and includes an additional 56 sqm space on the lower level that has been tiled and finished as a sixth bedroom if necessary. It could also be easily converted to a studio apartment for use by the owner if the entire villa is rented. Floor plans are included in the photo gallery.
Entry to the villa is via a welcoming double atrium courtyard. The ground floor comprises a large and fully equipped kitchen, very spacious lounge and dining areas, and a double bedroom with ensuite shower. This bedroom has its own private sea-facing terrace plus there is a private terrace accessed directly from the kitchen.
A guest toilet with hand-wash basin adjacent to the kitchen. The impressive stone-built fireplace in the lounge area provides welcome warmth during Crete's brief winter months. The wrap-around terrace on this level is accessed directly from the lounge dining area offers superb sea and mountain views. And there is also a quiet side terrace accessed directly from the kitchen.
A broad white stone staircase leads to the first floor with four large double bedrooms, each with its own ensuite shower room. Each bedroom has spacious wardrobes as well as direct access its own private terrace offering spectacular views. All of the rooms on the first floor have high wood-beamed ceilings.
The outside areas have been designed for maximum enjoyment in the sun or in the shade. In addition to the covered and open terraces adjoining the home, the owners have built two covered terraces overlooking the pool and offering superb views. One has a well-equipped outdoor kitchen with a built in pizza/bread oven, BBQ, sink and kitchen units situated in its own covered outdoor dining area. The second provides a large covered area to enjoy the views, or just take a nap away from the sun! And there is a very secluded stone table under a large oak tree in the lower front garden.
