This large renovation project is located in the peaceful village of Tsivaras, just 4km from the sandy beaches & larger, year-round amenities of Kalives. The whole plot is approximately 350m2, including the extra land plot which has building allowance for an extra guest house. This space can also be used for building a pool or as a garden for planting trees.
The enclosed courtyard is large enough for a small private pool & outdoor BBQ/Entertainment area.
The old house itself is solid with 50cm thick stone walls throughout. There is a large terrace upstairs affording wonderful sea views to Souda Bay. The floors upstairs are all laid with attractive flag stones.
A terrace was added to the upstairs East side, which was not equipped with enough steel to withstand the heavy weight of the stones and has now collapsed. With proper engineering and the proper, standard amount of steel which is compulsory for this type of renovated terrace, there will be no problem in future to reconstruct the upstairs terrace, creating an extra living space on the ground floor.
This old building has unique characteristics and is just perfect for the enthusiastic renovator who can transform this regal house back to its former glory. There is a possibility of creating 3 – 4 large bedrooms, large living/dining/kitchen by just restoring the old house, and on the extra plot of land, a small, 2 bed, 2 bath guest house for renting out if so required. More than enough room for an outdoor BBQ Kitchen and even a pool.
KALIVES SEA SIDE TOWN is only about 5 minutes drive away and offers two wide sandy beaches, (East & West) 2 banks, 2 pharmacies, doctors, dentist, primary school, 2 gas stations, beauty parlors & hairdressers, physiotherapist, laboratory for blood testing, butchers, bakers & patisserie coffee shops, restaurants/tavernas large SYNKA supermarket and all further year-round amenities as well as a KEP (English-speaking community centre)
