A beautifully renovated house in the pretty village of Potamies, about 20 minutes from the beach and 5 minutes from the magnificent Crete Golf Club, home of the first 18- hole course on the island, also 5 minutes from the water park.
The house, on three levels, has been thoughtfully renovated to highest standard, 96 sq. meters in total, sitting on a plot of 120 sq. meters. The ground floor consists of a large and interesting lounge and dining area with an open fireplace built in the traditional Cretan style. There is a contemporary lighting feature all around the room with low-voltage down lighters and concealed up lighter above. The stairs to the upper levels, in the far corner, add to the character to this space. The kitchen is well appointed and the original ‘working and functional’ bread oven has been restored retained. The original kitchen fireplace to the right has been adapted to accommodate the cooker & hob and an air-extractor has been fitted to the chimney above.
A few steps up the stairs takes you to the middle floor which consists of a large shower room and the second bedroom. The impressive master bedroom is at the top of the house and features ‘French windows’ that lead onto the large terrace with nice views of the surrounding area and the mountains, from this very peaceful location - perfect for a leisurely dining whenever time permits.
New solar panels are fitted and even through the Cretan winter months, free hot water will be available when the sun shines!
This delightful property also has a courtyard at the front of the house and parking for a car. When we visited, there was also ample parking available in the lane adjacent to the property. There are shops and taverna within striking distance and a two minute drive gets you to a very large supermarket which has recently opened on the outskirts of Potamies.
