Presented for sale and immediate occupancy this large, detached, traditional house and old olive press in the village of Basilika, close to Agios Martinos, which is above the year-round facilities in Acharavi in the north of the island.
The main house requires some refurbishment and updating but is habitable and, once finished, would provide a wonderful year-round home or a perfect lock-up and leave holiday home.
Downstairs. The living room is in the older part of the house and is heated by a large fire place. To the rear of the living room is the old kitchen, which still has the original bread oven. More recently, this room has been used as another bedroom and, again, is heated by a large fire place. There is access to the rear garden and small storage room from this room.
The kitchen/diner and family bathroom is situated in the newer part of the house and is heated by a small wood burner.
Upstairs, there is a large landing leading to 2 x double bedrooms. It may be possible to create a shower room on the landing.
Next to the main house, there is the old olive press that is now used as a storage room. This area could either be used as a workshop or could be converted to make a studio apartment.
Running along the outside of the house and olive press is a large covered veranda area, which would be perfect as an outside entertaining area. To the rear of the house is a closed garden area.
In addition to these buildings, across the small road there is space for parking and another olive grove area of 655 sqm, which is buildable up to 200 sqm.
To summarise, this is a very versatile property with many options. It could be lived in now, whilst other refurbishment work is carried out. If required, the living accommodation could be extended into the old olive press and a further house could be built just across the road so, all in all, could be a sound investment for holiday accommodation or permanent houses for family and friends to be close but not on top of each other.
Basilika is close to the many beach resorts and only 40 kms from the town and airport.
