Slightly elevated above the tarmac access road, this 114sqm Mediterranean-styled 3 bedroom house catches your eye. Positioned within swathes of olive trees on a fully enclosed, landscaped plot of 1200sqm, this villa provides an opportunity for a spacious permanent home or generous holiday property. The house comprises:
Entrance and Ground Floor
The gated entry leads to the off-road parking area then onwards to the front door. The ground floor area is separated into 3 main areas:
Living Room: The large living room has patio doors to the front and rear of the room providing access to both front and back gardens.
Kitchen/diner: This is positioned next to the living room. Plentiful cream floor & wall units on 3 sides of the room provide plenty of storage with the winter dining space positioned centrally. Patio doors provide access to the covered summer dining terrace. A cheery wood-burning stove is located at the rear of the kitchen where heat is generated to warm the ground floor and to drift up the stairs to the 1st floor bedrooms. The kitchen appliances including split-level cooker & ceramic hob, fridge/freezer & washing machine are included in the price
Shower room: a small lobby leads to the shower room which continues the neutral cream theme with large tiles and white ceramic fittings.
Guest Bedroom: to the right of the lobby this spacious double room has patio doors leading to the front terrace, then onward to the garden & pool area. Coupled with the shower room this area provides a generous guest suite or perfect office if working from home.
Stairs: A softly curved staircase rises along the back wall of the kitchen to the 1st floor. The cream tiles, stainless steel balustrades & glass safety panels reflect light from the rear windows onto the staircase & into the kitchen.
1st floor hallway: The hallway spanning the length of the house provides access to the 2 double bedrooms and shower room. A set of patio doors illuminate the whole of the upstairs and leads to a central balcony.
Shower room: This tiled room with shower alcove is at the top of the stairs towards the rear of the house. Again in the same neutral tones with white ceramic fittings and the owners carefully chosen colourful accessories, this room is centrally located to both bedrooms.
Bedrooms:The spacious double bedrooms are at each end of the house.Both rooms are almost equal in size and each has access to individual front terraces. The master bedroom with its impressive wrought iron bed is to the left of the staircase with bedroom 2 to the far right. The smaller balcony outside the master room offers privacy for morning coffee or viewing the sunset in the evenings. The terrace outside bedroom 2 wraps round the right of the house from which the view is across the rear garden towards the mountains.
External: The property has clearly defined boundaries with walls and fencing all round the landscaped garden. The current owner has used the rather rocky terrain well and has achieved the creation of a successful vegetable garden and several seating areas within the relatively low maintenance grounds. Shrubs, feature trees and flowering plants are rapidly maturing, blending the perfume of honeysuckle with the natural herbs of the surrounding countryside. Productive olive trees in the garden offer you the chance to produce your own olive oil.
Swimming pool:The private pool is set within paved sun terraces with an open pergola alongside for shade in the summer. An outside shower is set along side the pool and the area is illuminated for evening use.
Terraces: The covered front terraces in front of the house are used during most of the year for dining, BBQs and generally relaxing. Stone steps and a half wall link the terraces seamlessly to the pool and extend round the pool to protect the area from leaves and dust.
Storage: Finally, what is most probably a unique feature – the HIS and HERS storage rooms. His is filled to the brim with tools, paints and gardening implements. Hers is the home-owners dream cupboard with space for brooms, brushes and household bulky storage items.
