With its amazing hilltop location and surrounded by two gorges, this home offers complete privacy. There are absolutely stunning and truly panoramic views from the property with the majestic White Mountains stretching from the southwest to the southeast and the Apokoronas plain and Akrotiri peninsula and the Mediterranean sea from the northeast to the west. Mount Psiloritis, the highest peak on the island, is clearly visible. And these views can never be obstructed. It does indeed seem to be “away from it all” but Chania is only a 35 minute drive The seaside village of Kalives with its sandy beaches and a wide variety of shops, services and tavernas is only 12 km away.
The accommodation is on three levels, each capable of being a self-contained apartment. On the middle floor is an open plan living area of over 76 sqm with a large awning covered balcony overlooking the Apokoronas plain and the White Mountains. The spacious dining area is enclosed by four traditional stone arches, two opening out onto terraces in the garden. Through a third arch is the large fully equipped central aisle kitchen with adjacent utility room. Completing this floor is a master bedroom suite with double aspect terrace with views of the sea, a walk-in wardrobe and luxury “his and hers” bathroom. On the upper floor, the rooftop apartment has terraces facing east, west and south and comprises two ensuite bedrooms and kitchenette. On the basement level is a single bedroom apartment with shower room and a fully equipped kitchen. On the same floor opening out with concertina doors to the pool terrace is a large rec room/office.
This environmentally friendly villa was constructed by a reputable local builder to the highest standards with exceptional attention to detail. Walls, floors and ceilings are all insulated against the heat in summer and the cold in winter. Zone-controlled central heating is provided by a condensing oil-fired boiler in winter, whilst in summer energy efficient inverter air conditioners are available to cool the spaces if necessary. The large aluminium concertina doors and windows are double glazed with thermal break frames. A pergola-mounted 24 panel photovoltaic systems provides for all the electricity consumption. High-speed internet is available throughout the house and garden. There is building permission for the development of a picturesque 150 years old ruin and a further 240 sqm on the plot..
The large 60 sqm (12 x 5 m) swimming pool set in extensive Mediterranean gardens offers privacy and views of the mountains. There are many shaded sitting areas to enjoy the views and the peace and tranquility of the unspoiled nature and Cretan rural environment. The mountain climate with its cooling breezes and drier air is a refreshing change from the hotter and more humid coastal climate. Extensive automated watering systems look after the plants in the garden without wasting water and there are raised beds for the cultivation of vegetables.
This is a MUST-SEE property and we would be very pleased to arrange an extensive and leisurely private viewing.
