COASTAL WINDMILL WITH 360° SPECTACULAR VIEW
For a really different and unusual holiday home, this renovated stone windmill offers a unique experience. On a plot of approx. 218m2 it has a circumference of 2.40 metres. It is a few minutes walk to the sea and not far from the main road into Elounda along which there are a selection of tavernas, restaurants, bars and shops open in the season. Elounda itself is a few minutes drive or a pleasant stroll along the waterfront.
The ground floor has a kitchen corner with sink, mini fridge and cooker with grill and there is a bathroom (wet room) with shower, sink and toilet. Spiral stone steps lead up to a mezzanine area with double bed. An iron spiral staircase ascends to the top of the windmill with a room enjoying a 360° view encompassing the countryside, sea, salt flats, Elounda, hills and over towards the mountains across the Mirabello Bay. This air conditioned room is presently being used as a sitting room and has a built-in wooden storage sofa that can double up as another bed for one person. Outside is a little balcony. The terrace is stone flagged and the garden has many lovely flowers, plants and several trees and is surrounded by olive groves. A reed pergola in one corner of the garden provides shade and there is an outside shower. Road access is very good and car parking is on the plot. This windmill presents a marvellous opportunity to have an unusual holiday home in a reasonably private and quiet environment and yet so close to the sea and the facilities of the beautiful little resort of Elounda.
