Renovation project on the edge of Gavalochori village. The house size is 110sqm and the plot is 200sqm. It is habitable in its present state at a very basic level. This was once a beautiful old family home and with work and imagination, could be restored into a wonderful residence.

One enters the property through an impressive arch which opens up into a typical open Cretan hallway. Here you can still see the hooks where they sheltered the animals.

On the left hand side there is a spacious room and a bathroom. The hallway and downstairs room both feature a very traditional ceiling supported by long beams and olive branches.

The open archway continues to a huge courtyard. Here there is a beautiful stone staircase, built over half an arch to the left leading upstairs to another large room. The flooring here is from the old Gavalochori flagstone.

A traditional wooden ceiling also features in this room and there is a niche for the icons. Some old built-in benches remain here. Going across the courtyard one finds the kitchen. It still has the large bread oven and a “gourna” for storing water.

There is also the old “sterna” which provided water for the whole family in the past.

Alongside the kitchen there is an extra-large room from where you can enter into another kitchen.

This property has great countryside views as well as an off-road parking area. It is an ideal project for those looking for a unique property to put their own personal stamp on yet still have a property full of character, history and tradition. Renovation project in Gavalochori.
