This lovely townhouse-style maisonette is an incredibly rare opportunity to own a seafront property in the traditional village of Kalyves in the Apokoronas region of Chania
Fully renovated in 2000, the house is thought to have been previously used by fishermen to hang their nets, and it retains much of its original charm and character. Currently used as a long-term residence, it would also be ideal for a holiday home or rental lets.
Interior: The front door of the house opens directly into the nicely-furnished lounge, with the dining area immediately behind it and the kitchen situated at the back of the ground floor space. There is a guest bathroom to one side of the kitchen area, a storage cupboard under the stairs and a separate larder at the back of the kitchen that houses the washing machine and fridge/freezer. An atrium cleverly allows extra light into the main room, as do the three picture windows above the front door that perfectly frame, like a work of art, the sea and the sky.
There is a beautiful feature staircase decorated with illuminated nooks and crannies that takes you to the first-floor wooden mezzanine. Currently used as a sitting room/cozy lounge, this space would be perfect for a second bedroom.
Continuing up from the mezzanine, the staircase takes you to the very spacious master suite with an ensuite shower room, a dressing area, and patio doors that lead to a balcony overlooking the sea. External steps take you to the roof terrace, on which a sitting area with a wrought iron gazebo has been arranged to take advantage of the panoramic view out over Souda Bay. A utility area with the solar panel is located behind this seating area.
Exterior: There is a small enclosed courtyard garden with dining table and chairs at the front of the property, which opens onto the small road at the sea front. There is plenty of parking around the house; however, at the heart of the village you can easily do without a car. A well-stocked mini market and one of the best tavernas in the area are just next door. A 5-minutes’ walk takes you to the centre of the village with all necessary amenities, including a medical center, bank, pharmacies, food shops, tavernas, cafes, fitness centres, bus stops and two wide sandy beaches.
This beautifully renovated property presents a unique opportunity and is definitely worth a look if you’re interested in living at the heart of a traditional Cretan village!
