€420,000 - Villa
Approx. 3 kms from the bustling resort of Malia, the countryside rests calm and tranquil and it is here that this 200m2 property sits on a large plot, guaranteeing privacy.
The plot contains many Olive trees, all producing good quality olive oil plus Carob, Mimosa, Pine, Oleander, Pomegranate, Hibiscus, Fig, young Date Palms and a riot of plants, flowers, shrubs and herbs including Sage, Lavender, Honeysuckle and Jasmine and of course the usual vivid Geraniums and Bougainvillea. At the back is an area where the owner once grew strawberries and raspberries. The plot is actually in two parts. The house is located on 8,900m2 and there is a plot of 3,300m2 upon which another property of 100m2 could be constructed. It is possible to buy the house on only the 8,900m2 plot at a negotiated price.
The present property comprises a reception room and a mezzanine area (large enough to be a double bedroom or office with plenty of wardrobe/cupboard space) bathroom (full bath, shower cubicle, toilet and sink) open plan living room and dining room and a fitted kitchen. From the living/dining room is another bathroom (toilet and sink) and from here a blank wall can be demolished to unify internally the house with the adjoining guest apartment. In the bathroom is a floor hatch leading down to a basement area of about 5x 3m for storage. All the house has under floor heating (by gas*) and for extra warmth in the winter, there is a wood burner. With the exception of the bathroom all rooms have access on to the front verandah or the back courtyard. This last is shaded with a ceramic tile roof. A conservatory could be created here if desired. There is a storage room for the heating system and the washing machine.
The sea facing rooms all have wide windows or French windows with wonderful views over the garden, the countryside and to the sea.
The front patio goes around the house all the way to the guest apartment, giving the option of shade or sun at any time of the day and season and the rear patio also extends all the way around at the back.
The guest apartment comprises a reception room and kitchen, an upstairs mezzanine area and a bathroom (shower cubicle, sink and toilet). Again, wonderful views over the patio and the garden down to the harbour/marina at Malia.
The house has its own driveway with iron gates and an automatic light switch system. There is sufficient parking for 3 or 4 cars plus on the other side of the road to the gates, a large and ancient olive tree gives a lot of shade for extra car parking.
Other features are an outside shower, a couple of outside storage rooms, windows and doors with security locks, TV and satellite cabling plus dish (UK and Dutch programmes) and patio benches. The terrace roof is covered with ceramic tiles for extra insulation against the heat, but these could be removed and the roof could be tiled to create and extra roof terrace with 360-degree views.
There is an unlimited private water supply and water pump near the road, which can water all the garden (which has an irrigation system) and fill the water tank for the house. Near the pump is the gas* tank that can be easily filled by a supplier vehicle from the road. The property has a very large septic tank.
The property offers an excellent and unique opportunity for the new owner to modify it as they wish, perhaps unifying the guest apartment and the house, or creating more rooms inside the house. The back patio could be enclosed to enlarge the house. The size of the plot guarantees privacy and although the immediate area around the house is well tended, the rest of it remains typical Mediterranean flora and is a haven for local wildlife and birds.
The sea is at 800 metres linear distance.
