Rare opportunity to purchase a traditionally styled 3 bedroom/2 bathroom stone house of approx 150sqm on approx 300sqm plot with private pool and within walking distance of the village square in Plaka and the beach at Almerida. The house was fully renovated approx 12 years ago with the private pool added about 3 years later.

This is a charming, well-located renovated house is suitable for either holidays or permanent living. It could be possible to extend if desired. Walking to the local taverna in the village square and a private pool are 2 of the most requested features by tourists, so with a few cosmetic changes, this property could excel on the holiday rental market (subject to acquiring a tourist licence). Immediate viewing is highly recommended.

The front courtyard is hidden away behind a wooden arched door.

A boundary wall provides privacy and there is a small garden to the right of the gate.

The large sterna is a feature in this area which precedes the pool and terraces.

A stone utility store room is immediately next to the garden on the right and the house is to the left.

Details of the ground floor accommodation:

The wooden double front door offers access to the main room which is “L” shaped with traditional corner fire place and patio doors to the rear terrace and pool. Centrally in the room is a wooden staircase which rises to the 1st floor.

The foot of the “L” is separated from the main room by a stone arch and is used as an internal dining area.

The ground floor bathroom is a spacious room tiled in blue and white. It offers a full-sized bath tub and ceramic fittings in classic white with the bonus of a separate tiled shower.

Bedroom 1 is lined to the dining area at the furthest point of the house. This is a double bedroom with windows that look out to the pool.

Kitchen with traditional arch shape. The kitchen is fitted with light-oak wood-effect floor & wall units with contrasting work surfaces.  A stable door provides access to the front courtyard and additional natural light is supplied by the large kitchen window. 

Details of first floor accommodation:

Bedroom 2 is an extremely spacious room immediately in front at the top of the stairs. Patio doors provide access to the 1st floor terrace and 2 picture windows look down to the pool area and across the village to the sea. The half-pitched ceiling enhances the space in the room which easily accommodates a wardrobe plus a double or king-size bed with sufficient room for a bed settee or child’s bed.

Bedroom 3 is to the right of the landing & can accommodate a twin or double bed. Alternatively, it would be a superb office/TV room with its private terrace

The first floor shower room is tiled in the same blue and white as the ground floor bathroom, The shower is wet-room style without a shower tray and the hand-basin and toiler are in classic white ceramic.


The main courtyard and pool area is protected from Cretan breezes by the walls on 3 sides.

The good-sized pool is surrounded by sun terraces.

The slightly raised terrace immediately next to the house is large enough for chairs and a table for outside dining and is bordered by secure railings with gate to prevent any pool related accidents. 

The utility store room is a good-sized area that currently houses the central heating boiler plus the washing machine and laundry items. However, it would be possible to divide the room to make into a more useful space such as workshop, if needed.

Private pool with sun terraces and security railings
