Exceptionally renovated old house in Crete, a CNBC International property award winner
Exceptionally renovated property at the east of Crete close to Sitia. This house was the CNBC International Property Award Winner in 2008. Originally the 1897 building was the village’s “kafenio”. Now is a two floor house with a spacious living room, dining room, and fire-place. A stone-built arch in the interior separates the wooden kitchen from the rest of the house. On the first floor there are two bedrooms with separate bathrooms and storing space. The master bedroom has a large terrace offering panoramic views of hectares of olive groves and vineyards. The materials used in this house, such as the wooden flooring, ivory painted walls and stone in addition to the large number of windows, make the property very luminous while at the same time maintaining its original traditional character.
This traditional residential development is situated in the centre of one of the most picturesque villages of eastern Crete: Maronia, 7 kilometers from the town of Sitia in Lasithi prefecture. Lasithi has some of the most historical and beautiful mountainous villages of Crete. It also represents one of the few locations of the island that have remained untouched and virgin. The reason for this is mainly because of infrastructure which until recently was not as intense as in the rest of the island. Currently major road works are taking place in the area and the Sitia airport extension has now been completed in order to be able to accommodate international carriers.
