UNUSUAL VILLAGE FULLY FURNISHED PROPERTY WITH GARDEN, TERRACES AND TWO OLIVE GROVES
In the quiet rural village of Kato Pines, a little lane leads up to this 131m2 property on a 1500m2 plot, which comprises a one-bedroom house, an independent guest suite, a workshop, and an unfinished basement space which could become another guest suite. There are spacious terraces over different levels and the plot has olive, almond and fruit trees.
A hand-made Rennie Mackintosh inspired iron gate opens into a pretty courtyard and a huge terrace with several sitting areas, plus a bbq and the original wine press.
The main house has a large 25m2 living room with an arch. There is a cast iron wood burner, sofas, cabinets, coffee table, TV and TV cabinet. A breakfast bar divides the kitchen which has, fitted into cupboards, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. There is a ceramic hob and TEKA high quality oven. A spacious bathroom is very nicely tiled and has shower, sink, toilet and washing machine.
From the living room one exits out to the 24m2 conservatory, which is a new addition, heated by wood burner for cosy winter days. This is a lovely space for entertaining or just as another sitting room, looking out to the garden and up to the hills.
An entrance goes into the master 18m2 bedroom with wooden floor, ceiling with fan and a big walk-in wardrobe. The bathroom is en-suite with walk-in shower, sink and toilet.
The 17m2 guest suite, located away from the house, has a double bed, free standing wardrobes, sloping wooden ceiling, part wood/part tiled floor, a fridge and a bathroom with shower, sink and toilet. The suite has its own terrace with table and chairs.
The 15m2 workshop makes an ideal “man cave”.
At the side of the main house steps descend to a lower terrace with table and chairs and shaded by a vine. Here is a huge basement room, 18m2, presently used as storage. This could become another guest-suite with private terrace.
All windows are double glazed and there is central heating and air conditioning throughout. There is a new cess pit (soakaway). The previous one was cleaned and is now used as storage.
Additionally, a spiral staircase on the side of the main house ascends to the flat roof. Although there is plenty of outside space, from here there are extensive hill and countryside views.
There are two olive groves. One has 5 trees plus almond and pomegranate trees. The other plot has 18 olive trees plus fig, prickly pear and carob. Total land size is 1500m2.
The property was bought in 2002 and has been renovated over the years, with the bulk of the work completed within a year. Sizes shown are approximate, awaiting new topographic survey.
This property is unusual in that, for a village house, it has a lot of outside space. A swimming pool could be installed (with relevant Building Permit) and the house can be expanded. It could become a nice holiday rental project (with necessary license).
