Full Description

This renovated stone 2-storey 202m2 house on 207m2 plot retains a huge amount of character with many original features remaining and has a huge entry courtyard and upper terrace with wonderful countryside views.

It comprises three buildings surrounding a 45m2 private courtyard. The main house is 200 years old and has a spacious open plan living room and kitchen/diner which includes fridge/freezer, microwave, gas stove/oven plus imported fitted cupboards. Exposed stone work around the windows and doors demonstrates the craftsmanship of the stone mason/ builder of long ago. The room is kept cool in the summer by thick stone walls and ceiling fan.

A large luxurious bathroom/utility room has an integrated bath and shower unit.

A double bedroom is presently used as a library/guest room.

Upstairs there is a 40m2 master bedroom with broad wooden floorboards and ceiling. As well as the original built in cupboard, there is a fitted wardrobe. This bedroom opens out to a 40m2 terrace (which is above the lower living room/kitchen) and which has fantastic views over the village, the countryside and vine and olive tree clad hills. Outside the bedroom is the necessary plumbing to add an en-suite bathroom if desired.

Across the courtyard is the original kitchen, which is now an air conditioned 23m2 guest double bedroom. The original fireplace has been kept and a built-in cupboard.

Next to this room is a 58m2 large workshop and storeroom, which also has access from the street. It contains the original winepress and has been plumbed in with a sink. With relevant building permit, this could be converted into a self-contained studio.

The tiled courtyard offers plenty of space for “al fresco” dining, entertaining or simply relaxing. It is full of plants and flowers, plus lemon, bitter orange, loquat trees and three different variety of grape vines, which grow up to entwine over a pergola on the upper terrace giving natural shade. The courtyard is filled with the heady scent of orange blossom in the spring and honeysuckle in the summer. Also in the courtyard is a large working oven plus the original well (partly filled in).

The house has a water tank and solar panels for hot water plus back up electric immersion heater. There is main drainage, a telephone line, satellite, fast speed Internet.

All furniture and main household items are included, except the large storage jars, which can be purchased separately.
