Stone house for sale in Crete, Boasting an excellent location in a picturesque village of Apokoronas, set on a plot of 226mē on the top of the hill, this beautiful 163mē venetian stone house with three (3) bedrooms, is fully renovated to meticulous standards, but still preserving all architectural elements of the past; a home sanctuary in a tranquil environment, with amazing views of the rural setting!

 
Parts of this unique property are reputed to date back about 500 years, to the time of the Venetian occupation of Crete. It has been renovated to an exceptionally high standard, in accordance with archaeological office guidelines, in order to retain its authenticity.

Throughout, the timber windows and traditional doors, together with the original exposed stonework surrounds, are in keeping with the period of the property.

At the front of the 226mē property, there is a shady, secluded, paved courtyard, with ample room for parking. The larger courtyard at the rear of the property is partly paved, providing an area for outside dining, with an external staircase to the upper floor.

There are a number of fruit trees in the courtyard, including lemon, orange, pomegranate, quince and achlomelo as well as a prolific vine, jasmine, rose and a variety of herbs.

Entry to the rear courtyard is through two ancient camaras (arches), with timbered ceiling. To the left are two large rooms with magnificent, vaulted stone ceilings, said to have been used as stables in earlier years.

A wood-burning stove keeps these rooms warm in winter while the thick stone walls ensure that they remain cool during the summer months.

To the right, one enters the dining and kitchen areas, with a back hall and shower room beyond. A doorway from the back hall leads out into the courtyard. The wood-burning stove in the dining area can also be used for cooking, while the kitchen cupboards have been beautifully constructed by a local craftsman.

A wooden staircase leads up from the kitchen, past a storage and cupboard area, to a delightful bedroom, with dual aspect, above the camaras. From here, the original stone stairs lead to the landing between the two main bedrooms and a door out to the main balcony. From this balcony, a spiral staircase affords access to the large roof terrace, with spectacular, panoramic views to the White Mountains, the sea and the surroundingcountryside.

The spacious guest bedroom has large cupboards, an en-suite shower room and kitchenette.

The main bedroom, with spectacular views to the east, south and west, opens into the en-suite bathroom. A utility area with built-in wardrobe is adjacent. A door from the bathroom leads out to a private balcony while there is access to a another balcony from the bedroom itself.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a historic property, brimming with character but with all modern conveniences, restored to cater for your every need!


Location:

The house is located only three kilometres from the town of Vrysses with its supermarkets, shops, tavernas, bank, school, garage and post office, as well as the municipal offices of Apokoronas.
