Full Description

3 bedroom villa with swimming pool on 700sqm plot set on the hillside above the traditional village of Stylos. This is the perfect home for those who want to be away from the touristic areas associated with the coastal villages in Apokoronas.
The village of Stylos is famous for its giant plane trees that line the road next to the crystal clear river which runs through the village. The tavernas are usually filled with a good mix of both Greeks and visitors, so if you want to eat where the locals eat, then head to one of the many tavernas lining the high street. The village is famous for its close proximity to the nearby Diktamos gorge and also for the Samarian natural spring water which is fed from the snow covered peaks and bottled in the village. This well maintained villa has been lived in by the present owners for about 10 years and they have made it into a relaxing and tranquil permanent home.Access to the house is via a small agricultural track off the tarmac road. Double gates open into a very generous parking area then a wooden gate leads through the mature oleander hedge into the garden & towards the house.A paved pathway leads to the front door, but before reaching the house there are breath-taking views of the surrounding countryside. The infinity pool on the right of the path leads the eye out across swathes of olive trees and fields towards the Drapanos hillside in the distance. Accommodation here entry into a spacious open plan living room with dining area immediately in front, kitchen to the right of the room and seating area taking advantage of the views through the patio doors.
Immediately to the left of the front door is the ground floor cloakroom with toilet & hand-basin.  The fully fitted kitchen benefits from multiple floor and wall units in light-oak wood effect with graphite slate style work surfaces. Fitted appliances include split level stainless steel oven and ceramic hob and large fridge freezer. Mosaic splashback tiles in subtle tones finish this area. A picture window over the sink provides superb views across the countryside.
The inside dining area is conveniently sited close to the kitchen, though for snacks or morning coffee the covered veranda offers a pleasing alternative. A window provides natural light and a view to the side garden The lounge area has a traditional wood burning stove which efficiently provides heat for the whole house at a relatively modest cost. Double glazed patio doors provide access to the front terrace from which the views are either across the landscaped garden to the countryside or to the right to the pool.
The final room on this floor is bedroom 3 which is currently in use as an office. This room again has patio doors leading to a private terrace to the side of the house. The current owners have retained the wardrobe but replaced the bed with a bed settee for occasional guests. A great use of space for permanent living.
