Set on a sleepy hillside, with panoramic views of coast and country, this characterful house has been lovingly restored to become a beautiful family villa, on the fringe of a heritage village.
Sympathetically restored to retain its three centuries of character, and unobtrusively updated with contemporary facilities, this lovely old house nestles amid two-acre grounds of cacti and flowering shrubs, citrus and plum trees, and its own olive grove. A stroll through the tiered garden reveals a picnic table in a sunny spot, a classic stone fountain, a pergola cloaked in bougainvillea and, privately positioned below the house, an oval swimming pool. Along with a shower and thatched shade at the poolside, there is sundowner seating with millstone tables, rustic benches and rural and sea views that stretch right down to the coast. Inside the villa there are two Jacuzzi bathrooms and three charming bedrooms, each with air conditioning; a country kitchen is fitted with quality appliances; and the beamed sitting room has big sofas, a wood-burning stove and wall mounted TV, and opens on to a covered dining area.
At the beginning of the sought after NE coast nestles the ancient and picturesque village of Agios Markos. Time stands still here with its Byzantine buildings,flowered terraces and panoramic views. There’s a small local taverna just 2 minutes away and the sea and amenities just 1.2km. The villa is ideally situated close to a cluster of coastal resorts.
