KH-1926 The House of Swallows – Gavalochori


The House of the Swallows is a stunning, luxury villa on the top of the hillside in Gavalahori. It has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a huge private pool, with panoramic views out to sea, Souda Bay, local countryside and the White Mountains.


The villa was originally built in 1999 and has been upgraded by its present owners. It is spacious and modern, with a large main house, plus separate  guest studio. The house sits in nearly 3000m2 of land and gardens and is not overlooked, and cannot be built in front of, so the views will remain unspoilt.


The villa is single storey and has beautiful features such as an exposed stone feature wall, high wooden vaulted ceilings, a fireplace with a wood burning stove and wide, sliding patio doors which let the living areas flow out to the large covered main terrace.


There is an open plan living and dining area and a small office space which leads through into the fully fitted kitchen with a centre island. There is also a separate pantry and a utility room with a washing machine.


The master bedroom is large and airy has wooden vaulted ceilings, patio doors to the outdoor terrace and a separate dressing room. There is an en-suite bathroom with a glass shower cubicle and vanity units.


The second bedroom is also a good sized double and also has wooden ceilings and patio doors to the terrace.


From the hallway, there is a large mezzanine area which provides plenty of internal storage space.


The extensive garden has been very well landscaped and boasts a stunning pool which measures nearly 60m2, and which is solar heated, thus extending the months in which it can be used. The garden has a full irrigation system and a wide variety of mature plants and flowers including fruit and olive trees.


The garden also has a stone Aloni as a feature and there is also a large parking area and carport leading in from the quiet access road, which is newly concreted.


The outdoor areas are what really sell this villa with its stunning pool and extensive terrace which measures 88m2. It contains BBQ area, dining area, storage and other seating areas from which to admire the views. It is a great entertaining space and is by the pool.


There is lots of external storage space including a shed containing the back-up water tanks, a boiler room and a pool room.
