2-STOREY CORNER HOUSE, UPPER FLOOR HABITABLE; GROUND FLOOR EX-OLIVE PRESS FOR RENOVATION
An interesting two storey building at the end of the famous Kritsotopoulou Street, near the new Museum and small Square, as well as the beautifully renovated Afendis Christos church with its 13th century frescoes.
Total size of the building is 163.32m2. The ground floor originally housed the olive oil press and is now used for storage. Floors are hard earth and ceilings concrete (with the house above). The room is one huge space with a wooden mezzanine floor, which has an independent entrance. A small car can pass down the narrow street to this house (but proceed no further), so this space could also become a garage.
The upper floor is laid out in traditional style. One small room on the right was a bedroom; a bathroom is on the left with shower, sink and toilet.
Then there is an open space and a kitchen with the original huge fireplace and an exit out to the terrace.
Further along on the right is a room which was used as a bedroom and a door into the living room, which has an exit out to the terrace. From here there are lovely views over the village, down the valley to the sea and distant mountains. Part of the terrace has a tiled pergola for shade.
It is tiled and clean. Some of the wooden windows have been replaced with double glazing and painted aluminum windows.
Additionally, by the front door is the old wooden oven and below this, with entrance from the side street, is an open area for storage or plants plus a closed storage area.
This property has a lot of potential to become a larger family home, two independent apartments or perhaps have the lower part as a workshop or gallery.
Aghios Nikolaos is at 10 kms. Heraklion airport at 75 kms.
