Impressive stone built house with several terraces and panoramic country views
The house is full of character and comprises a living room with large fireplace in which there is a wood burning stove, a wall-to-wall stone archway, fully fitted kitchen and dining area plus a bedroom/study. These rooms each have their own exit out to the paved courtyard.
From the living room steps ascend to the rear of the house and a second bedroom with ceiling fan and which retains the original stone oven façade set into the wall which, lit up, makes a wonderful feature. There is a large fully tiled bathroom with large corner bath plus washing machine and tumble dryer and a door out to the rear terrace.
Leading off from the front courtyard is an independent air conditioned studio with bedroom and full en-suite bathroom. This is plastered and painted white with blue door and window shutters.
The main house has been restored from the original and combines the traditional character of a Cretan house with the modern conveniences required for today’s comfortable lifestyle. Doors and shutters are wooden, there are high timber ceiling beams and a terracotta-tiled roof. Cabling is installed for future central heating if required. The house has its own septic tank.
There is plenty of room for a swimming pool if required. In additional to the front courtyard and rear terrace, a wide paved terrace runs around the side of the house and below the courtyard there are citrus and pomegranate trees.
The property is set back above a quiet village road with off-street parking a few metres away and has a fabulous boundary wall topped by iron railings.
Property is located in the village of Agios Georgios, a rural village above a green valley. The village has a cafeneion and a taverna. The village has a lot of history dating back to Minoan times and there have been some important archaeological finds made in the area. The village is easily accessible from the main north-south road and is 15 minutes from Sitia on the north and about the same distance down to the seaside town of Makrigialos.
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.
