***NOW WITH GAS CENTRAL HEATING AND A NEWLY REDUCED PRICE***
For sale in the traditional village of Xerosterni: This charming renovated house is located in the heart of the village. The house was restored and updated in 2007 but retains all the delightful features of the original property. It is situated to the rear of the gated garden, with a traditional courtyard garden plus off-road parking to the front of the plot. Gas central heating has just been installed with radiators in all rooms, making the villa perfect for all year round living. The property comprises:
Living room: Entrance from the courtyard through traditional wooden double doors into the main living room. To the left of the door is a double window which offers views to the courtyard and provides natural light to the room. Also to the left is the charming old style wooden staircase. The living room is unexpectedly spacious and has a wooden painted ceiling which compliments & highlights the original wood coloured beams. Other traditional features include exposed stone-work, enclosed niche storage cupboard and furnishings totally in keeping with the age and style of the property, thought to be around 120 years old. A wood-burning stove is located centrally in the room which warms both the living room and the wall to the kitchen. To the furthest point of this room is an apothiki or storage area which would easily make a superb office or library. There is also the possibility to create a door or window to the side courtyard.
Kitchen: An arch to the right of the front door leads to the spacious kitchen area. This too retains many of the original features including the original bread oven. The room has been updated to be practical & visually attractive with its marble work surfaces & modern appliances. A door opens to the side pathway leading to the good-sized courtyard which would be perfect for outside dining if desired.
1st Floor: The wooden staircase in the living room rises to the hallway from which the bathroom & bedrooms are accessed.
Bedroom 1: To the left of the hallway, this very spacious bedroom has high ceilings which again have been painted to provide a very light and airy feeling. Glazed doors open to a small private patio and flood the room with natural light.
Shower room: To the right of the hallway but accessible to both bedrooms, this large room has been finished with cream tiles and classic white ceramic fittings. The hand-basin is set into a small vanity cupboard with the owners’ touch of modern styling – a tiled make-up shelf. A good sized window offers view over the courtyard to the village and the White Mountains.
Bedroom 2: This is another good sized room which spans the width of the house. Here the ceiling is sloping giving even more character to the room. A built in cupboard provides storage and a window to the far left provides natural light, making the room perfect for bedroom or hobbies.
External: Unusually, this property, whilst being in the centre of the village, retains it privacy with a sheltered courtyard and secluded garden featuring a spacious garden shed with its own WC, utility room, built-in pizza oven and BBQ. The gated entry with off-road parking is a bonus in this very traditional village with its narrow streets.
