This is a large 3 double bedroom village house, renovated to a high standard in June 2006. The house has all the charm of a traditional Greek house but with the convienience of new electrics, plumbing, mains water, solar panel heating, power points and so forth. The property has been sympathetically restored with wooden windows, shutters and beams.
It is a rare opportunity to own a house of this size and condition within the village of Houmeriako, with easy access and with parking directly outside property. There is an un-interrupted view of the olive gloves and mountains beyond the village.
The village is 3 minutes from the town of Neapoli with all services, supermarkets and bars, with an attractive town square and gardens. There is a small shop and 2 tavernas in the village. Small country lanes provide interesting walks and access to other nearby villages. Agios Nikolaos, with its award winning beaches, is a 10 minute drive from the property. The international airport of Heraklion is 45min drive.
The house consists of....
Small front garden, newly paved, with flower beds, outside tap and electricity supply. The garden also has ample storage in the form of custom built bunkers. Screened from the road with attractive wooden trellis with mature climbers and a feature tree. A lovely place to sit and eat.
Path to traditional front door with stone arch.
The house is tiled uniformly throughout with a high quality neutral tile and painted in neutral creams in the main. All woodwork varnished uniformly in traditional wood stain.
Very large open plan living space on ground floor; entrance area/computer workstation, telephone and tv point.
Leading from the entrance area is a large living area - adjacent is the kitchen with traditional porcelain sink and tiled worktops.
A large stone arch provides a focal point of the ground floor.
A further lounge area with stone fireplace and working chimney. A cast iron 'Fournos' - a wood burning stove is in place. TV point and further telephone point.
Large dining area.
A downstairs cloakroom comprising toilet and sink.
Stairs lead to second floor.
A spacious landing area, currently used as a library area, leads to a large hallway which could easily accomodate a sofa or provide ample storage or become a home office area.

Large white tiled bathroom with full bath, shower, sink and toilet. Alcove with washing machine.
Master bedroom; aircon. A very large room with picture window providing beautiful far reaching views.
Bedroom 2 - Also with view. Double bedroom with beamed ceiling.
Bedroom 3 - Also a double room with beamed ceiling.
There is a loft hatch, leading to a full size loft, part boarded, part head height, providing valuable storage. Currently accessible by ladder but ample space for loft ladder or perhaps spiral staircase.
The hallway provides access through french doors to a to full length balcony with iron railings & an outside tap.
There is also external doors, providing a secondary access, via a pedestrian lane, to the property. This leads to an exciting option to split the property into 2 self contained maisonettes, both with bathroom facilities and independant access.
Alternatively, this is a large, well thought out home for either a family or people wanting spacious accommodation for themselves with the option of rental income.
