Unique low energy 3 bedroom/3 bathroom house of 205sqm on 2,500sqm plot situated on the outskirts of Megala Horafia/Aptera village in Western Crete. The property has beautiful panoramic views to the White Mountains. The interior is designed with an atrium as the central point of the house, from where all the rooms are naturally lit and the lower level is designed for use as a guest house, if required, as it has its own separate entrance, kitchenette and bathroom.
The dining, sitting area and the 3 bedrooms are slightly off-set from the centre.
Upon entering the house there is a large front lobby with a storage room.
The dining room leads off to a part covered courtyard.
Off the dining room to the right, you can find the fully fitted kitchen with a breakfast bar.
A wood burning stove is situated at the base of the atrium providing additional heating for both the dining room and the lounge.
Walking up a few steps, you enter the sitting room, which has got access to two terraces. A small one, with fantastic views and the main terrace with two distinct sitting areas. These areas offer 180 ° of panoramic views to the majestic mountain range of “Lefka Ori” and the various villages of the area.
A study is also set parallel to the steps.
In the atrium, there is also a staircase leading to the bedrooms on the lower level as well as to the terraced garden with its own ‘paths’ to different sections.
The master bedroom has a large en-suite bathroom with a walk in shower and the second double bedroom has a smaller en-suite bathroom too, with a shower cabin. From this bedroom, there is also a door leading to the gardens.
On this level of the property, there is a study/studio with a mezzanine bedroom, a bathroom and a kitchenette with a separate entrance, which can be used as a guesthouse.
