In the heart of Xirosterni village, formerly the old Kafenion, is a large, unique, traditional property, well worth viewing.
Two houses are based round a private walled courtyard, through a genuine Stoa entrance, with its own functioning bread oven, probably at least 200 years old!
The main house is fully-renovated for all year round living, with a new build extension, adding two bathrooms and utility, and an extra storey, with a great roof terrace for private sun-bathing and fantastic views of the Lefka Ori and Souda Bay.
This house consists of a large, open-plan living room with adjacent fitted galley kitchen and a very high chestnut wood roof in traditional style. Through an old arch, we go into the snug sitting room with its own wood stove.
The wooden mezzanine is currently used as a music room, but could become a further bedroom. This leads into a room with large skylight, currently used as an artist’s studio and dressing room.
The large double bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, with full bath and separate shower. There is also another double bedroom downstairs with nearby bathroom, with shower.
Across the courtyard is a beautiful renovated annexe, with original stone sink and small wood stove. This makes a further double bedroom and is also used as a peaceful study.
The other, unrenovated, traditional house has the original cooking area and outside barbecue, plus its own, separate road entrance. This property has potential to be restored with extra storey, to provide 2 more bedrooms.
The courtyard has several established trees, including lemon, orange, old vine, large carob, fig and very old bougainvillea. It is shady and atmospheric in the summer and used for outdoor living, in the traditional Cretan style. We also have two further terraces.
This property is ideal for development as a small, ‘Boutique’ hotel, or family accommodation, with extra, self-contained house for additional space.
