Full Description

An interesting renovation project, working with some traditional stone buildings and a double plot of stone walled land, in a quiet, tranquil and rural area, just 8 kms from the seaside village of Plaka and with wonderful countryside and sea views.

There are three buildings totaling a size of 135 m2 on a total size plot of 1042 m2 within the town plan. One part is 773 m2 and the other 269 m2.

The buildings comprise a rare Venetian type stone house of 96 m2 with the main room divided by a wide arch and containing the original large fireplace and up steps to a small room at the rear. A more modern part of the house has concrete floor and ceiling; the rest is earth floors.

There is the original stable of 16.77 m2. There is also a 5 m2 room which was once a WC (not modern standards).

They encircle a closed courtyard which retains the original stone oven and a wine press.

The land is enclosed by beautiful stone walls. On the plot are the remains of a stone windmill, of which there are still quite a few in the area.

The property could become a one-storey house with three bedrooms, three bathrooms living room, dining area and kitchen. A number of architectural drawings have already been made for the plot suggesting solutions to renovate and develop the existing house and giving the possibility for additional apartments on the plot.

The property and its land offers a rare and fantastic opportunity for development and renovation, with its stone wall boundaries, olive trees and wonderful views and location at the edge of Kato Loumas village, which is calm and peaceful.

The area is well served by the travelling “shops”; Vrouhas with a taverna and a couple of cafeneions is within 5 kms. The sea at Kato Selles is within approx.6 kms. There are tavernas in this coastal area. The beach and restaurants at Plaka (whose fame and popularity have been increased by Victoria Hislop’s book “The Island”) are 8 kms away and it is 23 kms to Aghios Nikolaos. Heraklion Airport at approx 68 kms.
