Renovated 3 bedroom/2 bathroom delightful house tucked away in one of the wonderful little whitewashed villages away from the coast. This traditional house in the tiny village of Filipos is currently used as a holiday retreat but could easily become a permanent home with very little work. The pool and courtyard are magnificent with the back-drop of the gorgeous surrounding scenery. This property would certainly be eligible for a tourist license and would appeal to people who want to get away from the bustle of everyday life and relax in the delightful local countryside. Viewing is highly recommended
The property comprises a generous “L” shaped renovated house with large open plan kitchen, 2 double bedrooms plus master suite with sleeping area and mezzanine lounge plus a large immaculate courtyard with big private pool.
Entrance is from the village street and dedicated off road parking, through a wooden gate into the large courtyard. The house is “L”shaped with kitchen.
2 stairs lead up for entry to the kitchen which is very traditional room. The room has a beautiful wood beamed ceiling and the overall style is truly traditional with stone breakfast bar on the left of the “U” shaped work area. Rich mahogany units line two walls with the stone half-wall acting as a servery for the dining area beyond. The work surfaces are cream and the splash-back tiles are chequered to tone with the floor tiles and work-tops. A picture window over the sink looks out to the main courtyard & pool. Appliances include split level oven, ceramic hob, dishwasher and fridge/freezer.
Immediately next to the stone half-wall is the inside dining area with its large table and chairs to enable up to 8 people to dine.
From the covered terrace, centrally there is a double half-glazed door into a hallway where 2 generous double bedrooms – 1 left and 1 right - and a centrally placed shower room are located. Both bedrooms are simply but beautifully furnished and feature stone-highlights round the windows and typical plaster-work including a niche.
The shower room is very spacious with excellent quality chocolate and cream tiles with classic white ceramic fittings. The shower tray has a tiled ridge and mosaic tiles on the shower floor.
The master bedroom suite is in the foot of the “L” and has sleeping area, mezzanine seating, walk-in wardrobe, storage cupboard and shower room. Walk in through the half-glazed door into the room. There is a stone half wall separating the sleeping zone from the main room. A stone trimmed window looks out to the courtyard from the lower level.
Next to the sleeping area is the shower room. Tiled in pale cream, this compliments perfectly the feminine décor of the suite.
The walk-in wardrobe is a large storage area which combines a wardrobe and general storage. Cleaning products are kept in a separate storage area under the stairs.
The charming mezzanine area is furnished simply with relaxing armchairs and shelves holding music and books. The perfect place to sit and dream with the pretty arched window looking out to the surrounding countryside.
The courtyard is fully paved with cobble-style pressed concrete which is perfect for easy maintenance.
Mature trees provide shade and pots and recently planted shrubs are a soothing contrast in the heat.
A beautiful stone wall surrounds the courtyard and at the far end rises to feature stone niches.
External stairs rise to the roof terrace where at present just the services of Solar panel and satellite dish are located. But with the addition of a safety railing or wall this could become yet another seating area. Or alternatively it would be possible to extend the house size if desired.
