Thishouse located in the beautiful traditional village of Vafes, overlooking the mountains and the beautiful countryside. It is an unique opportunity to acquire a historic property, as parts of it, are reputed to date back about 500 years, to the time of the Venetian occupation of Crete. It has been renovated to an exceptionally high standard, in accordance with archaeological office guidelines, in order to retain its authenticity.
At the front of the house, there is a shady, secluded, paved courtyard, with ample room for parking. The larger courtyard at the rear of the property is partly paved, providing an area for outside dining, with an external staircase to the upper floor. There are a number of fruit trees in the courtyard, including lemon, orange, pomegranate, quince and achlomelo as well as a prolific vine, jasmine, rose and a variety of herbs.
We can help you get a Golden Visa (permit without tax residence) when buying a property worth €250,000 or more.
Entry to the rear courtyard is through two ancient camaras. To the left, two large rooms, which had been used as stables in the earlier years.
To the right, one enters the dining and kitchen areas, with a back hall and shower room beyond. A wooden staircase leads up from the kitchen, past a storage and cupboard area, to a delightful bedroom. From here, the original stone stairs lead to the landing between the two main bedrooms and a door out to the main balcony. From this balcony, a spiral staircase affords access to the large roof terrace, with spectacular views of the mountains and the sea.
The guest bedroom has large cupboards, an en-suite shower room and kitchenette. The main bedroom opens into the en-suite bathroom. A utility area with built-in wardrobe is adjacent. A door from the bathroom leads out to a private balcony while there is access to another balcony from the bedroom itself.
