3-BEDROOM VILLA WITH SWIMMING POOL AND E.O.T. LICENCE
FEATURED ON BRITISH TV (True North production for Channel4/More4: “HOMES BY THE MED”) at 21.00 hours Tuesday 10 May: A well presented and charming 135m2 villa on 855m2 plot within a few minutes drive to the sea and close to the old traditional villages of Milatos and Sissi.
The house has many terraces, some shaded and others for sunbathing and the swimming pool has its own pool bar, so one can cool off in the pool and sip a refreshing cocktail at the same time.
The living room and kitchen are divided by an arch. The kitchen is well equipped including dishwasher, ceramic hob and cooker, extractor fan, American fridge/freezer with ice maker and water filter and double sink. Double doors open out to the external dining area, shaded by a bougainvillea clad pergola. A bathroom has power shower, sink, toilet and washing machine.
One bedroom at this level has fitted wardrobes with window panels. The present owners use this room as a dining room in the winter and it has own patio terrace.
A wooden curved staircase ascends to a hallway with exit to a terrace balcony and has cupboards for extra storage space.
At this level are two bedrooms. One has ¾ size beds (larger than single, smaller than double), fitted wardrobes with pull out shoe rack and a dressing table. The balcony terrace has countryside and pool views. The second bedroom has a double bed and exit to a balcony terrace with sea and countryside views. The bathroom has an oval bath with good shower fitting, sink and toilet.
Air conditioning units are throughout the house plus double glazing and solar panels. All balcony terraces are secure and a pine fence is available to go around the pool for children’s safety. There is also a children’s gate for the internal staircase.
The swimming pool is most inviting and uses the Alligator System of water purification, so it is not chlorinated. The bar area is equipped with fridge and there are fixed bar seats in the pool.
Although the house is air conditioned, with the doors and windows open, there is a pleasant through breeze which keeps the house cool during the hot summer months. The house is presented with most of the furniture, solar panels, and satellite dish. There is a septic tank. The garden is pretty with colourful flowers, shrubs, palm trees and other plants. There is a car port and a wooden shed with pergola. This is also plumbed for two washing machines.
The old village of Milatos is within a few minutes drive and it is just 5 minutes down to the sea. Nearby Sissi has ATM machines, supermarket, bakeries, shops, tavernas, bars and cafes. Heraklion airport is 45 minutes away and Aghios Nikolaos about 25 minutes.
With the E.O.T. licence, this property can be legally rented out and earn a good income. Villas with pools are especially popular and the area is quiet, yet not too far from life. Or the house is just fine for a family home.
