About Property

*** SOLD ***

This approximately 96 sqm property is situated on a plot of about 542 sqm above the traditional village of Fres. The home offers fantastic and forever unobstructed views and has great potential for restoration to a spacious villa or two separate, self-contained apartments. As the property lies within the village limits, there is the possibility to extend. Its terraced land has its own well and a variety of established, mature trees. An annotated topography is included in the gallery ... a very traditional layout indeed that adds to the charm and magic of the home and its location!

The new owner may certainly choose to ignore part or all of the rear garden plots (labeled II and III on the topography). There are multiple owners of the adjacent home to the left who also own the centre plot. As the owners are scattered all over the world, it is very unlikely that these can ever be sold.
There is an intricate network of paths in the vicinity and the start of an old kalderimi is close to the house. This leads alongside the Fres gorge to the rugged, mountainous interior of the region, with its mix of fertile plains and hillsides covered in olive groves, wild flowers and aromatic herbs. The small road continues past the property to the hillside church of Agia Marina.
Fres itself has a large, open plateia and offers a range of amenities: tavernas, kafenions and shops, including a baker and butcher, as well as a primary school. It is within twenty minutes’ drive of the beaches at Kalives and Georgioupolis and is on the bus route to Chania, which can be reached in about half an hour by car.
The location of this house makes it ideal for walkers, artists or writers seeking a peaceful and tranquil setting. 
The selling price is exclusive of property transfer tax, legal expenses and agency fees.
