3 bedroom/2 bathroom renovated village home with superb views of the White Mountains. This old olive mill has been renovated to a pristine condition and is located in a small hamlet in the area of Vrysses. It is located 1km from the National Road giving easy access to both Chania and Rethymnon. It has a large workshop which could easily be converted into a separate studio, if extra accommodation required.
The tarmac road finishes about 100m above the property. Vrysses is 1.5kms away and has a Town Hall, tavernas, bakery, butchers, supermarkets, bank, dentist, doctor, post office, florist, garages etc. There is also a coach station with links to Chania, Rethymnon and the south coast.
The original building of this olive mill was renovated and re-built in 2008. Eight years later an additional piece of land was obtained and the property was finished with covered outside areas, internal walls installed and outside gardens established as well as a newly built workshop, plus large store room and covered car parking area. The workshop could easily be converted into a separate studio.
There is a covered front porch area which opens into an open plan living/dining area, with designer log burner – a lovely feature of the room, vaulted wooden ceiling, and doors onto a covered terrace. This is a light, roomy space, with dining area and lounge areas clearly defined.
To the left of the lounge is a newly installed white fitted kitchen consisting of gas hob, eye level Neff oven & combi-microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer. The kitchen is immaculate and well equipped, and is a well- designed space for a keen cook.
Leading off the open living area is bedroom 1, a generous double, with wooden ceiling, fitted wardrobe, en-suite shower room and doors onto rear terrace. This too is a bright, airy room with views out to the garden and surrounding countryside.
At the other end of the living space is bedroom 2, also a double with some lovely original features and wardrobe and cupboard.
The family bathroom is on this floor also and is a good size with bath and is decorated in modern, neutral tones.
Next to the kitchen area is a very useful pantry, and stairs up to the mezzanine level.
On the first floor is a mezzanine/balcony with two sides overlooking the living area and leading off is a large room, at present used as a workroom/occasional sitting room but could easily be a third very spacious double bedroom, with range of fitted cupboards, and a separate walk-in store room.
Over the kitchen area is a fitted study, with a desk area and lots of bookshelves.
At the end of the mezzanine is a door onto the outside upper sun terrace, which has access onto a further roof area where the solar panels are situated. The terrace is a good size and could easily accommodate a hot tub, or dining table.
The entire house is centrally heated, with air conditioning units in living area and bedrooms 1 & 2. It has ceiling fans throughout and aluminium doors, windows and shutters plus fly screens. Landline telephone and excellent internet connection.
The garden is both well designed and low maintenance, predominantly stone paved, with very private covered terrace / dining area with tiled pergola roof, raised patio with planted borders and a secluded area with seating and parts of the original olive press as a feature. The plants are mature and include a Mulberry and Judas tree.
Also outside there is a small utility room with sink, built-in cupboards and housing the oil central heating boiler, with further outside covered area incorporating log store and additional water storage tank and oil tank.
From the garden there are steps down to car-port which houses 2 cars, workshop and store room. The large workshop would make a good music room/craft room/studio or along with the store room would make further self-contained living accommodation.
This property has been renovated to a very high standard. There will be no work required for new owners. It is a solid home which combines the charm of a village home with all the comforts of modern living. It is bright and airy and the countryside views are stunning.
Renovated old olive mill located in the area of Vrysses offering 3 bedrooms/2 bathrooms and a workshop which could be converted into a studio.
