This pretty village 2 storey house is located in the centre of the highly sought after town of Kalives. Whilst it needs some cosmetic updating, the house is basically sound and was lived in until recently. However the owner now reluctantly needs to sell. The house comprises:
Ground floor: The house is simple with entrance into the main open plan room. A kitchenette is to the left of the front door with a functional shower room to the far left. The most striking feature of this room is the superb arch which separates the living room into 2 parts – seating and dining.
1st floor: Stairs rise from the far right of the house to the first floor where there is a large open room which has been subdivided by partition walls into 2 sleeping areas. A door leads across a small covered veranda to a 3rd room which is the only part of the house that needs structural attention.
General: It would be possible to use this house immediately, particularly if the new owners were interested in updating and restoring themselves. Many stone features that add character to this type of home could be revealed over time.
The house is of stone in a classic Cretan village style and its location is within minutes stroll from the beach and centrally for tavernas and the local general store. The town of Kalives is active for 12 months of the year with its banks, school, shops, tavernas, dentist and bus service.
Estimated finishing costs: A cosmetic renovation with attention to the roof over bedroom 3 could cost in the region of 5,000 euros (plus permission charges if required). Electric and water connected to the property.
Summary:Please be aware that other than the veranda there is no external space or garden to this property. However this is a rare opportunity to purchase a very central house in Kalives that is located within a 1 minute walk from the sea.
