Situated on a gentle hillside overlooking the sea, the site is surrounded by handmade stone walls. It contains mature gardens with numerous olive trees, flowers and other Cretan / Mediterranean vegetation. The property benefits from its own private water source. The house is approached over a small stone bridge which leads into a welcoming, stone paved entry courtyard, shaded by olive trees.
The land of 13,900 square meters, or 1.4 hectares, has been professionally landscaped with terraced gardens featuring olive trees, colourful flowers, and aromatic herbs including thyme, rosemary, coriander, anise, mint, lavender etc... Stone foot paths take you through the gardens, with great respect to the land and nature. A garden pavilion takes advantage of the wonderful views. Broad terraces with built-in seating areas surround the pool and house, offer magical views. There is also a BBQ/dining area and pergola covered seating areas. The stunning infinity-edge pool creates the impression that the water in the pool extends to the Mediterranean.
The property benefits from a very convenient setting on a quiet hill side with a few villas, yet is only three km from the town of Elounda and seven km from the town of Agios Nikolaos, with their traditional tavernas, gourmet restaurants, shops, night life and golf course. These two towns provide also marinas for yacht mooring with all services. Nearby there is a very beautiful small traditional fishing village with seafood tavernas called Plaka.
Facilities are available, a few hundred meters from the site, for landing helicopters. The location has good road links to the international airport at Heraklion.
The newly completed residence offers interior space of 456 square meters or approximately 4,908 square feet and features six bedrooms within the house as well as two independently accessible guest rooms.
The house features impressive living areas that include a large open plan living room with high ceilings and a fireplace. There is also a study and a dining area opening through French doors to an area shaded by an arched colonnade, with views to the infinity edge pool and surrounding gardens.
A well equipped kitchen opens onto an outdoor, pergola shaded poolside dining area and wide patios, making an ideal space for alfresco living, dining and relaxing.
The accommodation within the house comprises a master suite, two separate (independently accessed) guest rooms and five additional bedrooms. All the bedrooms have en suite bathrooms, walk-in closets, and stunning views to the Mediterranean and the Cretan mountains.
