TWO ADJOINING SEASIDE APARTMENTS BY THE SEA FOR MODERNISATION AND REFURBISHMENT
Overlooking the very attractive Blue Flag beach of Kitroplateia, this first floor property comprises two apartments. The front apartment is 158m2 and the rear 65m2. Wonderful views over the beach, the sea and to the mountains opposite, which turn purple as the sun sets. Also, silhouetted against the blue sea on the promenade to the harbour, is a modern sculpture depicting the Horn of Amalthea (which is the goat that gave nourishment to the infant Zeus).
The sea facing apartment comprises an entrance hallway and reception room, three sea facing rooms with balcony terraces and to the rear, a storage room, a bathroom and kitchen that exits out to a spacious courtyard. Both bathroom and kitchen need modernizing and refurbishment. A lovely outside living space could be created in the courtyard.
An independent room has a bathroom and could be refurbished into a guest suite, or incorporated into the main accommodation.
The rear apartment comprises two reception rooms, a bathroom, kitchen and two inter-connecting rooms. There are no sea views from here, but the kitchen faces the courtyard.
This property presents a very interesting project. The apartments can be unified into a very large one. They do need work, but the location is excellent. Kitroplateia is a lovely setting and being a small bay, it is sheltered and many people swim in the sea here during the winter. The beach is part sand and pebbles. The bay has a stone paved road lined with Tamarisk trees and there are some excellent tavernas, many of which are open in the winter; there is no traffic in the immediate vicinity of the apartment. The paved walkway carries on around the coast to the Marina one way, and to the Harbour and Port the other way and is a lovely sea side promenade.
There is a quicker, direct access to the Harbour, Lake and up to the Square, all within a 5-minute stroll.
This particular area goes back to antiquity and during the last century there was a thriving trade in the export of lemons, which were loaded on to boats moored in the bay. This is how we have the name Kitroplateia, which means “Citron Square”.
