A unique stone-built villa for sale in Maroulas.
The villa, once a ruin, was meticulously restored and brought up to modern-day standards while keeping faithful to its original charm. The house has many traditional features and is laid out over two storeys.
The elevated ground floor consists of a dining room, a living room, a kitchen and a toilet. The wooden floor complements the stone arches and stone walls beautifully, creating a very cosy and traditional atmosphere. A wooden staircase leads to the second floor which is where the two bedrooms and main bathroom are found. The master bedroom also has a separate wardrobe area, while both bedrooms have access to the veranda and its spectacular views.
The property is set on a 450m² plot with a dedicated parking area, fence and electric gate. There are a further 150m² of building rights too, and due to the lay of the land, one could build another house without sacrificing any of the magnificent views. There’s also ample room for a swimming pool.
