An eye-catching manor (280 sqm) embedded in the beauty of its location, on a spacious plot of 790 sqm. Walls built of the stone found in the land, forming wide terraces with panoramic views to the valley and perimetrical spots for the cultivation of flower and vegetable gardens.
A wide stone staircase leads you to the main entrance. You immediately notice the open-plan layout of the manor. High wooden ceilings and master-crafted arches connect seamlessly every room giving a sense of space and creating a comfortable environment. The fully equipped kitchen, the dining area and the living room are literally unified.
An internal U-shaped staircase connects the two floors. A hallway leads the way to the three bedrooms. All three bedrooms are luxuriously spacious and have first-class fitted wardrobes. Two bathrooms, one with a bathtub and the other with a shower, serve their functionality.
This property leads from lofty, light and airy rooms directly connected to the landscape; to deeper, more enclosed space that offers privacy and respite from the heat of the day, to open, semi-protected courtyards that act like mini-landscapes within the landscape.
The home is sold furnished and the placement of hardwood furnishes, doors and windows has been done carefully as they harmonically blend with the natural stone that has been used as the dominant material.
There are also two storage spaces, inside the house and outside. The house is equipped with central heating in all spaces as well as A/C units for cooling.
The village is built in a semi-circle on the eastern slopes of the Psilortis (the highest mountain in Crete), between the hills of Koupos and Livadiotis, at 460 meters above sea-level. It is at a distance of 21 kilometres from Heraklion and the crossroad at the seventh km on the main road to Heraklion leads straight to the village.
Heraklion or Iraklion is the largest city and the capital of Crete. It offers a wealth of museums, a summer-long arts festival, historical sightseeing, amazing nightlife and events throughout the year. Having your own place in the Heraklion Region will be one to remember.
This place will offer you a balance between privacy and socialisation. Its amphitheatrically built houses allows its visitors to enjoy the transition that takes place in a few kilometeres from the mild, cultivated valleys, the rugged and high slope of Psiloritis to the the region of Heraklion that has a colorful palette of beaches:
- Amoudara: Located in the Gulf of Heraklion, 5 km west of the capital, it is the favourite beach of the locals. Having a 7 km long sandy beach (its name means ‘big sand’), there are options for everyone, from those who wish to be close to amenities to those who prefer a quiter spot to swim and enjoy a sunbath.
- Amnissos: Οnly 8 km from the city of Heraklion, this beach is long and sandy. Here are the ruins of the Minoan mansion in which the famous fresco of “Lilies of the sand” was found. It is said that the king of Crete, Minos, came here to take a vacation and got amnesia from the beauty.
- Agia Pelagia: A small coastal settlement, which is located 10 km from the city of Heraklion. It gets crowded during summer, but it is definitely worth a visit thanks to its thick sand and the calm emerald waters that create an exotic scenery. Near Agia Pelagia, beautiful is also the beach of Psaromoura. Both are ideal for families.
