Modernisation project – an old olive oil factory in Vamos requiring updating but is habitable in its present condition. Currently offering 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms but with the scope for more, the property stands on a plot of 4,000sqm – so plenty of room for a swimming pool, if required

This property, has possibilities as a large family home or a very viable commercial property – perhaps a holiday rental business with the potential to add extra bedrooms and bathrooms or even a restaurant/café area.

This was once a very impressive home and it will need work to bring it back to its former glory.

It is within walking distance of the heart of the village and enjoys views of the countryside.

Entrance to the property is through an arched gateway which leads to a good sized, private courtyard from which you can enter the garage, olive oil factory, kitchen and lounge areas.

There are also steps to your right which lead up to the first large terrace area.

The courtyard has huge potential to be a beautiful garden / outdoor dining area.

Kitchen – accessed from the courtyard and the huge garden area, the kitchen is functional at present and is a good size with units all along one wall in pale green wood. There is a large family dining table in the centre of the room and Cretan style sofas against 2 walls as well. It has a stone floor in good condition.

Just off the kitchen is a small hallway / coat storage area and, just to the left, is the bathroom. This is a decent size and functional but will require modernisation. It has a shower, washing machine, toilet and sink.

The hallway leads to the lounge which boasts a striking onyx floor in pristine condition, plus many original pieces of furniture including a large family dining table and chairs, sideboard, Cretan sofas, and glass light shades. Doors lead out to the veranda garden side and back out to the courtyard.

Bedrooms 1 and 2. These are both off the lounge area. Bedroom 1 is a very good sized double and bedroom 2 a good size double with a wonderful original bed with silver detailing on it.

Upstairs is via a white staircase in the corner of the lounge and this leads to 3 further bedrooms and another bathroom.

Bedroom 3 is a large double and 4 and 5 are also doubles. All have wooden ceilings and floor to ceiling fitted wardrobes. Bedroom 5 has access to its own large terrace at the rear of the property.

The bathroom has a bath, sink and toilet.

From the corridor you gain access to the large terrace area with stairs back down to the courtyard. The terrace has views of surrounding countryside and the White Mountains.


The garden is a huge blank canvas of a space. The owner thinks approx. 2000sqm of it is lawned but it also includes pomegranate, orange, mandarin, lemon trees, plus grape vines.

There is ample space for pool, vegetable plot, more fruit trees etc.

Garage and Factory

These are both accessed from the courtyard. The factory has an original wooden ceiling and many original features and fittings remain. It provides an opportunity for further development of the site, depending on the new owner’s desired usage.

The property also benefits from central heating installation and solar panel installation.

Amenities nearby include bank, health clinic, taverna and mini market.

Large old olive factory in Vamos in need of updating with many possibilities either as a large 5+ family home or a commercial venture.
