Cozy Villa in Galatas
Situated in one of the most serene villages of Crete, just half an hour drive from the sea and the airport, both the location and the home itself are worthy of consideration by the most discerning of buyers looking to find a forever family home or a worthwhile holiday rental investment.
Galatas Villa has all the elements to make you want to stay and never leave. Wake up each morning to be enchanted by the vibrant green of your surroundings and drift off to sleep each night to the tranquil sounds of nature.
The villa is built on ground floor level, with luxurious and elegant spaces of 120 sqm, blending beautifully with the landscape.
A spacious open plan living room leads to a fully fitted kitchen and dining area. A corridor takes you to the three bedrooms which are served by two bathrooms. Features as exposed stone walls, matte polished concrete flooring and wood beam ceilings are made prominent with flattering Cocomat furniture. The property got renovated to perfection in 2022 and is sold fully furnished with luxury furniture, like Cocomat beds in all bedrooms.
Wide windows showcase to perfection the unlimited views of the valley, creating a bright sunny atmosphere throughout. Aluminum doors and windows, energy efficient double glazing, mosquito nets, energy fireplace, gas and floor heating make the place proper for year round living.
From the living area a generous private patio and garden can be accessed. Beautifully maintained grounds of 1.713 sqm are prettily arranged with stone walls, wood fencing and terracotta plant pots filled with various blooms. A detached annex hosts a BBQ and dining area with a luxurious wooden dining table. Extra sitting spots are found in the shade of the ground level veranda. The outdoor area and the carport provide ample parking space.
The plot has been divided into two (1.100 + 600 sqm) with an extra building capacity of approx. 400 sqm.
In May 2023, the garden underwent a complete make over giving the property cozy paths, lighting installations and different plateaus. A pool with heated hydro massage measuring 8.5 by 3.6 meters was also one of the additions. The pool area offers plenty of space for you to enjoy your time in the sun. With the added private pool, the property is also perfect for holiday rentals.
The village of Galatas is located in the center of the Heraklion prefecture, approx. a 30 min. drive from the nearest beach and Nikos Kazantzakis Airport, 40 min. to Heraklion and just 10 min. to the new airport that is currently being built in Kasteli, which will be completed in 2025.
