A truly stunning renovation of an old Olive Press and Mill- originally renovated in 2008 and then refurbished again with additional land being added by the current owners in 2016. There is also lots of potential to increase the accommodation if required. It is situated in the village of Metoxi next to Vrysses which is a traditional village with all the necessary amenities.

The property can be used as a permanent residence, a rental investment or as a comfortable holiday home in a peaceful surrounding. It has been finished to high quality standards whilst retaining some of the traditional features.

On entering the property through a covered court yard, the ground floor has noticeably high ceilings allowing a lot of natural light to decorate the open plan kitchen, lounge and dining room. The ground level leads to two spacious bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room. Just across the living room there is a full bathroom with a tub, also the washing machine. The newly installed kitchen comprises of high quality fitted appliances with a separate pantry for extra storage. The fitted kitchen consists of gas hob, eye level Neff oven and combo -microwave, dishwasher , fridge-freezer.

On the second level is a mezzanine/balcony on both side of the open plan room overlooking the living area. Leading off is the largest with a range of cupboards/wardrobes and far reaching mountain views. Off this is a separate walk-in store room which could be converted into an en-suite shower room. Over the kitchen area is a fitted study and at the end of the mezzanine is a door leading onto the outside upper sun terrace, which has access onto a further roof area where the solar panel is situated. This area could be made into a fourth bedroom/en-suite if required.

The entire house is centrally heated and Air conditioning units are in the living area and bedrooms. There are no-noise, Italian Ceiling fans throughout and aluminium doors, windows and shutters plus fly screens. It also comprises of a landline telephone and excellent internet connection.

Leading from the open plan lounge towards the outside covered porch is a small utility room with sink and built in cupboards and is also housing the oil central heating boiler. A further outside covered area incorporates an additional water storage tank & oil tank. To the front and rear of the house there are tiled pergola roofs for alfresco living and shade. The garden consists of a further covered area, featured remains from the original olive press and two trees, a mulberry and a Judas. All the open areas are stone paved with raised flower beds, steps down to the car port, workshop and store room. The workshop and store room is spacious and could be used as extra living space with a few alterations.


  1. The owners have now finalized the layout of the adjoining plot to incorporate a swimming pool and further terracing, etc, with the option of finishing the pool to be undertaken by the purchaser if required. Regardless of this, the owners are in the process of rebuilding the boundary walls and generally tidying up this extra plot of land.

    The second option is that the owners install the swimming pool and complete all associated landscaping, including an external spiral staircase from the swimming pool area to the first floor. They would also include an en-suite shower room with toilet and basin on the first floor.  This would mean there will be three generous sized double bedrooms; two en-suite, with the third, (ground floor) bedroom using the adjacent family bathroom.  Reflecting completing all these new features, the asking price will then be €345,000.

About the location: Yetim Metoxi is a small hamlet and the tarmac road finishes about 100 meters above the property. It is one kilometer from the National road giving easy access to nearby beaches and both the cities of Rethymno and Chania. The town of Vrysses is just a kilometer away and has the town hall, tavernas, bakery, butchers, supermarkets, bank, dentist, doctor, post office, florist, garages etc. Also, the Coach station with links to Chania, Rethymno and the South Coast.

This unique property qualifies as a permanent residence but also as a holiday home. The perfect opportunity to experience living in Crete feeling part of the traditional culture but at the same time living in modern comfort.
