We are pleased to present this completely renovated traditional house in the delightful village of Xirosterni in the heart of the beautiful Apokoronou peninsular. Xirosterni is situated only 3 km from the facilities of Vamos (Health Centre, Police station etc) while the beaches of Almyrida (10 minutes) and Georgeopolis (15 minutes) are within an easy drive. Xirosterni also has its own mini market and bar (“cafenion”).
The property itself is situated in the center of the village and is bordered by a two metre high wall ensuring privacy.
The house has been renovated with practicality in mind whilst keeping as much of the traditional Cretan features of the property as possible making it both a perfect “all year round” residence or an easily maintainable holiday home. The walls are up to one meter thick helping to keep the heat in during the winter (by using the economical log burner) whilst helping to keep the house cool during the hot summer months.
While the floor area of the house is 80 sq meters, the living area has been extended to 120 square meters by utilizing two mezzanines.
The ground level comprises of the shower room (which replaces the original “bread oven”), the kitchen and breakfast area. The log burner (“zomba”) is also situated on this floor.
Down four steps is situated the main bedroom (24 square metres) which is also heated by the zomba.
While up a flight of stairs resides the living area with a large window giving a panoramic view of the White Mountains and Souda Bay.
Up four more steps and along a walkway brings you to a further bedroom/workroom (20 square meters).
The outside area includes a guest bedroom which has its own shower/wc room.
Exiting the main door and up a set of steps onto the well (“sterna”) the jacuzzi/hot tub can be found. This is extremely suitable for the Cretean climate, its benefits being available all year round.
Storage and workshop areas can also be found in the grounds.
