A few metres from the centre of the village, this traditional stone house has the most wonderful views from its balcony and roof terrace.
The house is 49m2 with two independent accesses plus a 10.47m2 basement storage room. From the upper road one enters into an air conditioned open plan kitchen/living/dining room and out on to the balcony. In the summer the vine offers some welcome shade on the balcony and in the autumn the opportunity to pick your own grapes!
The fitted kitchen includes electric cooker and hob and a fridge.
From the balcony, a spiral staircase ascends to the tiled roof, with canvas pergola. Views are panoramic up to the mountains behind, over the village and the countryside, down to the sea and the mountains beyond the bay. The terrace has a sink and electricity. It is a perfect place for spending those balmy Cretan evenings under the stars and enjoying the sounds of the village or relaxing under the pergola with a book during the day.
An internal wooden staircase from the kitchen area descends to the lower floor. Here is a bedroom, small sitting area with the original fireplace and a niche, plus a modern bathroom with shower and washing machine. A door exists out to a shared courtyard and the lower road. The entrance area here is rather interesting as the artistic next door neighbour has his sculptures dotted around, adding character.
There is a lower room for storage. Water is heated by electricity.
The house has been well maintained and makes an ideal holiday home or a compact permanent home, at the heart of Kritsa village. A small car can reach the house to unload shopping, suitcases etc. and parking is a few metres below the house.
Aghios Nikolaos is at 10 kms; Heraklion airport at 75 kms.
