This recently acquired listing has the unusual combination of being in the centre of the village but with a significant sized garden. The house has been upgraded and some renovation work has been carried out by its Greek owners, so would suit either someone who is in the building trade or familiar with Cretan building techniques.
The house currently has just 1 bedroom but could easily be altered or extended to become 2 or 3 bedroom property. The main part of the house comprises a sizeable entrance hall leading to, on the right, a good sized kitchen. To the left is a large store room which could be converted to a bedroom or studio. Straight ahead from the hallway is the big living room with a wooden staircase up to the first floor bedroom.
There is an external door on the first floor which takes you to a large vine covered roof terrace.
The hallway, kitchen, living room and bedroom have all recently been plastered and most original windows have been replaced with modern white aluminium. The shower room/WC is located off the living room.
Externally there are several outbuildings, some stone and some un-plastered brick, all in various states of repair. Removal of some or all of these could benefit the property and place the house more centrally on the useable land.
The garden itself is highly desirable with fruit trees, vegetable garden, trees for shade and grape vines. In total the land size is approximately 1,500sqm.
The village has a taverna and café. The views driving to the village are superb and the village itself is welcoming. Kalives is approximately 8km away and it would take around 45 minutes to drive to Chania airport.
This is a really desirable property with character and charm.
