This two storey, two bedroom and two bathroom house has glorious views over the valley to the Bay 0f Sitia,  built of stone it also benefits from a large apathiki (store room).
A set of shallow steps lead up to the triangular front terrace which is shaded by a row of shrubs, the front door opens into the lounge about 6 x 4 mtrs with a high wood beamed and boarded ceiling and a marble mosaic floor and open fire for use during the winter. An archway with sliding doors leads into the very well fitted kitchen/breakfast room with a range of floor and eye level cupboards,  a sink, cooker, microwave and in the corner a wood burning stove, This room measures about 6 x 3.5 metres and gives access to a flight of stairs to the first floor whilst the back door opens out onto  a delightful rear courtyard which is partially covered and very sheltered. Here there are more storage cupboards and work tops and a sink mainly for vegetable preparation, whilst at the end of this area is an old bread oven and BBQ area and steps to one of the terraces.
The downstairs bedroom is accessed through an archway from the lounge and at present is furnished as a dining room with the shower room next door which also houses the washing machine and dryer.
Internal stairs lead to an open area now used as an office and where an occasional bed could be housed for a child, The delightful main bedroom is approx.4.5 x 3.5 metres with fitted wardrobes and two sets of French windows that open onto separate terraces with lovely views. On the other side of the office space is a well fitted shower room and another door leading to the terrace making this a cool and airy place during the hot summers. The house is being sold with all the furniture in place including all white goods etc.
Much loving care went into the upgrading of this lovely house which has unfortunately only had the occasional visit from members of the family since the English owners had to return to the UK. Whilst habitable, a little TLC will easily return it to its former glory. Parking is very close by.
The house is at the edge of this very old village approx.. 400 metres above sea level, it has amazing views of the bay, the ferry port, the fishing port and the airport on the other side of the valley, so there is always something to look at from the three terraces on the first floor.
