Experience the seamless fusion of modern comfort and old world charm in this newly renovated house in the heart of old Kalives, complete with a rooftop terrace offering stunning views and top quality amenities
In the cozy, historic area of old Kalives, you’ll find this recently revamped house with a rooftop terrace. While it retains its traditional exterior charm with its smooth plastered stone walls, once you step inside, you’ll be greeted by a modern, stylish interior designed for a luxurious vacation rental or as your own holiday retreat.
1st Floor: As you enter, you’ll find yourself in an open-plan living space. To your right is a comfortable lounge area featuring a corner sofa that can convert into a double bed, a wall-mounted TV, and adjustable LED lighting. This is where you’ll also discover the first of the charming nooks that give the house its name.
To the left, at the opposite end of this floor, is a fully equipped integrated kitchen with a dishwasher, fridge-freezer, full-sized oven and hob, and all the necessary appliances like a microwave, coffee machine, toaster, and kettle.
Between the lounge and kitchen, you’ll find the heart of the house: a custom-made, steel-framed curved staircase enclosed in oak with safety glass railings. A folding dining table will soon be added to this floor.
Lower Floor: Descending the staircase, you’ll reach a small hallway with the second nook. To the left is a boutique hotel-style bathroom with attractive features such as an Italian shower, a softly lit mirror, a rimless WC with a bidet attachment, a heated towel rail, and the third charming nook.
To the right of the hallway is the bedroom, featuring a 2-meter-long box bed that provides extra storage, a fitted wardrobe with full-length mirrors and a safe, two bedside mirrors with dual lighting options and USB charge ports. The original front door, complete with a stable window opening, is also located in this space. Under the stairs, you’ll find the washing machine and storage for cleaning supplies (which will be enclosed in a box).
Outside: The staircase leading from the road to the rooftop terrace is adorned with attractive aluminum rails, giving the house a nautical touch. The rooftop terrace accommodates the solar panel and filter equipment, hidden behind bamboo fencing. At the front of the terrace area, there is a seating and dining space with views of the village and the sea, providing the perfect outdoor living area with room for sun loungers, a barbecue, and even a small bar.
The house was completed this year, and the owner plans to:
- Install a folding dining table on the upper floor.
- Add cupboards under the stairs for the washing machine.
- Create a cupboard around the electric meter under the external staircase for additional storage and a box seat.
This exceptional property is intelligently designed to make the most of its compact space (50m2) and is filled with thoughtful details that give it character. It features top-quality fittings and furnishings and is ready for immediate occupancy, including:
- Aluminum double-glazed doors and windows with integrated fly screens and blackout roller blinds.
- Inverter units for both hot and cold air, with dehumidifiers on each floor.
- A filter system for drinking water.
- USB port sockets.
- High-quality linens.
- Soft lighting options.
- A fully functional kitchen for extended stays.
- The rooftop terrace suite, complete with a sofa, chair, coffee table, and a bistro dining set.
Location: Situated in the peaceful residential part of the old neighborhood, you’re just a 3-minute walk from the village square and a 5-minute walk from the sea, making a car unnecessary.
