This unique Cretan farmhouse sits on the outskirts of the lovely working village of Fres in the foothills of the White Mountains. The beautiful sandstone house has 158 square metres of floor space and 2,894 square meters of landscaped grounds. This delightful property offers further scope to extend and with an additional building allowance of 100 square meters, has the option of further building and/or the installation of a swimming pool. Telephone and internet are connected at the property and provided by OTE.
The house has been sympathetically updated by the current owners retaining the original single floor layout, with high ceilings giving a feeling of space. This could easily be adapted to include a further floor increasing the size of the house considerably. The property is accessed via the public road which leads only to the property itself ensuring complete seclusion. Completely bordered by dry stone walls the farmhouse is imposing and yet welcoming.
Ancient vines cover the two courtyard areas providing a haven of shade in the hot summer months. A variety of fruit, nut and ornamental trees surround the property creating additional shade and structure to the garden which has been thoughtfully recreated whilst retaining the integrity of an ancient well, original threshing circle and a wine press.
This lovely home will appeal to those looking to experience the true flavor of Crete, who enjoy seclusion, have a genuine love of the countryside and the flora and fauna of the island and have an appreciation of the beauty the island offers.
To the right of the property are double opening doors to the main courtyard, ahead are steps to the 3 meter high double opening hardwood front door.

In all this is an exceptional property that rarely comes on to the market. Its proximity to the lovely working village of Fres with bakery, Kafenon and small assorted shops is enviable. With its traditional village square Fres has appeared regularly over the years in many Greek films and is a wonderful place to sit and meet up with locals. 20 minutes takes you from total seclusion to a variety of exceptional beaches at Kalami or Georgopolis and another 10 to Chania and all it has to offer. Nearer home and directly from the house are a variety of walks through olive groves and to the mountains that are exceptional.
There are amazing beaches at Georgioupolis and Kalives, and of course more extensive shopping and eating places 20 minutes from the house.
The white goods are included in the price. Some furniture may be available by negotiation
