At a Glance
Originally constructed in the 1930's, this stunning villa was originally used as the school for the area. It is situated in a wonderful area on the sought after and exclusive north east coast, conveniently close to all amenities and the sea – just 1 km from the beach and a 3 minutes’ drive from amenities.
Set within a beautiful plot of 1,300 sqm the gardens are fully landscaped with stone walls all around and it is paved with beautiful old stone. It boasts a wonderful variety of flowers, trees and shrubs including bougainvillea and olive trees. There is easy access to the house, a main iron gate and a private parking area for 3 cars. Stone steps give access to the rear terraces and gardens. The highlight of the exterior area though must be the stunning pool that is 12 metres in length as well as the stone built BBQ area with its sitting and dining area – a stunning place to relax or dine alfresco.
Totally constructed with local stone, the villa itself offers 360 sqm of living space spread over 2 levels plus an additional storage and mechanical room in the basement level. The main entrance on the ground floor level leads into a large hallway where there is a guest WC, a storage area, and entrance to the cellar via an archway as well as the staircase to the first floor level.
With stone floors throughout this ground floor level, the spacious open plan living room with fireplace, dining area and art kitchen are an absolute delight – the whole area is light and airy with many windows all around and doors that lead out to the gardens and pool. The huge state of the art kitchen with large island comes complete with all modern appliances. Next to the kitchen is a food storage/larder and a large laundry room with further storage.
The first floor level is accessed via the internal staircase, but also has its own independent entrance door to the rear of the villa. This level offers 3 spacious bedrooms – there are 2 large bedrooms that both have ensuite bathrooms, an office and walk-in wardrobe. The third bedroom is the ‘grand master suite’ which also features its own ensuite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe. All bedrooms have access out to front facing balconies which take advantage of the stunning views. To the rear of this upper level, the independent entrance door leads out to a large terrace with a Corfiot style pergola adorned with flowers and steps leading down to the gardens and pool – again, a great area that is ideal for relaxing and dining.
Other property features include central heating and cooling via Heat pumps, a reserve water tank which collects the rain water from the roof, new bespoke wooden doors and windows, wooden floors in all the bedrooms and beautiful stone flooring on ground floor.
