Fabulous luxury renovation of a traditional Cretan home on 1,500sqm plot with space for a pool in Drapanos. The house itself is 150 years old and was renovated in 2008 by the present owners. The house of 130sqm has 1 grand master bedroom and there is a 45sqm studio, ideal for guests. The library/study area and apothiki could also be converted into additional bedrooms plus there is still the opportunity to build further, subject to permissions.

This is a luxury house which genuinely needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. The renovation has been done to the highest standards both inside and out and it is beautiful and impressive. The present owners have lovingly restored many original features such as the huge stone arch in the lounge and there are many areas of exposed brickwork, nooks and rooms on different levels, making this a home full of character.

Accommodation details:

The main house comprises a large lounge with a high (5 metres tall) wooden ceiling and a huge, very impressive original stone archway. There are cream floor tiles throughout and the walls are a pale yellow. There is a large 8 kilowatt log burning stove.

To the right, the well- equipped kitchen is down a few steps and next to this, again down a few steps is a formal dining area which seats up to 8 people.

Just off the lounge is a good sized cloakroom with exposed brick and rock with white units and additional storage.

The very grand master bedroom is 25sqm and is accessed up a few stone steps from the lounge. It is a large, bright room with patio doors which open to the main garden area and a lovely feature window to the rear. It has large fitted Shaker style wardrobes and air conditioning. 

The en- suite has cream tiles on the floor and pale brown tiles from floor to ceiling. It is a good size with shower, white units and heated towel rail.

Above the kitchen and dining areas is a library / study area which is accessed from wooden stairs in the lounge. It has solid wood pine floor. This potentially could become another bedroom, if required.

The studio:

Away from the main house is a separate 45sqm studio, ideal for guests. It is spacious and light with double bed, kitchen area, and en- suite.

There are patio doors which lead out to its own terrace and an outdoor dining area with stunning views of the surrounding countryside.

Outside: 

The outside areas of the house comprise a large, beautiful garden with mature plants, shrubs and fruit trees (banana, grapefruit, persimmon, pear, apricot, quince, lemon, fig, loquat and clementine), and a pond with fish and a remote controlled water feature.

The garden sweeps down from the house and is divided by a wide gravel pathway and sleeper steps with pond to the left and BBQ area to the left.

At the top is a large ‘kiosk’ or covered pergola area with round table, topped in coral limestone and seating for up to 8 people.

The BBQ area has sink and running water. Just down from here is a large apothiki (4 x 3 m), presently used for storage, but it has electricity and water so could become an extra bedroom, if required.

The garden has outdoor electricity and the pond and pathways are lit at night. It has spectacular views of the rolling countryside and mountains beyond.

Through a door at the rear of the lounge are 4 more outdoor areas and a large utility room;

Shaded area for potential vegetable growing,

Hot tub in a private, secluded part of the garden,

Large pergola with dining table and chairs, ideal for evening dining or a place away from the heat of afternoon sun

Large rooftop with amazing panoramic views out to sea and encompassing all of the local countryside.

The utility room is just next to the house and is perfect for when using the outdoor pergola or hot tub. It has kitchen and washing facilities.
