Right in the centre of the village plateau in the traditional Cretan village of Aspro, stands this gem of a property which has been lovingly restored by the present owner into a very desirable home, retaining all the traditional features and character of the original old house. Being less than 5 minutes' drive to the white sandy beaches and amenities of Almirida, this would make the perfect holiday home for a large family, or as a holiday, rental enterprise.
Beautiful arches, wooden lintels, beams, stone-paved courtyards, old fire-places and niches have all been retained to bestow a warm and charming ambiance to the interior and exterior of this beautiful home.
The entrance into the property is from the quiet village lane. An attractive stone arch separates the spacious living-room/bedroom with open fireplace from the kitchen/dining area and then into the stone-paved courtyard, where the separate guest studio is located right across from the house. The guest studio has stone steps leading up onto a large roof terrace with amazing views over serene countryside & village roof-tops to the White Mountains.
A unique and eye-catching feature in the lower courtyard is the delightful corner bath-tub which is totally private and not overlooked by any other property... a truly unique approach to relaxation and the perfect place to cool off during the hot summer months! A few stone steps from this lower courtyard lead to a larger, enclosed courtyard where there is lots of room to construct some flower beds or for planting trees and vegetables in soil beds. Further steps from this upper courtyard lead to the en-suite bathroom veranda of the upstairs Master bedroom. At night, the glow emanating from the external lights all round the courtyards create a romantic and serene ambiance.
The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with shower cubicle. A door leads from this bathroom onto a small veranda with steps down into the large, stone-paved courtyard.
Striking traditional features, e.g. Wooden ceiling beams, stone arches, original niches, lintels and door posts retain the authenticity of the original house
