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.

Excellent location just 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 owners are in the process of purchasing a 194 sqm plot immediately adjacent to the house. The plot is inside the village limits and would ideally lend itself to the construction of a swimming pool, a small villa, or an extension to the existing house, as well as increasing the size of the existing garden.  Access to this ground is excellent as the road is directly alongside and at the same level as the plot. This additional land is included in the asking price!

 
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.

  • High quality aluminium doors and double-glazed windows with insect screens and security shutters.
  • Fully fitted kitchen with high quality appliances including dishwasher and an eye level oven
  • Spacious wardrobes in all bedrooms
