Sold : Detached Villa - Paphos, Kathikas
This LUXURY 3 bedroom bungalow with full TITLE DEEDS is located in a very quiet road in the heart of the wine growing village of Kathikas.
Everything about this property shouts quality and class- from the hand made solid oak doors to the solid acrylic kitchen tops. The current owners moved into the property in 2006 and have systematically added to the quality of the property throughout the time they have lived there.
The grounds of the property are entered via double gates. A long sweeping drive leads to the front door, and once through the front door we come to a small reception hall, which in turn leads to the lounge.
The lounge is spacious and very tastefully decorated and furnished. Highlights include sheen finished wallpaper, a stone finished fireplace, 2 settees and with patio doors leading to the covered veranda overlooking the very attractive swimming pool
The kitchen, which was re-built in 2016 has a central island with solid acrylic work tops and an integral dishwasher. Other features of the kitchen include self closing drawers, an American style fridge/freezer with drinks dispenser, MIELE hob and extractor fan and a double BOSCH oven and microwave – again all top quality.
Next to the kitchen is the utility room with a washing machine and sink – giving extra space in the kitchen.
The dining area includes a table large enough to seat 6 people quite easily and the noteworthy feature of the whole area is the number of windows and doors which allow the maximum of light into the property. This together with the very high ceilings help keep it bright and airy.
The large master bedroom, beautifully furnished, has glass fronted wardrobes, patio doors to the outside, a walk in closet and a very modern en suite bathroom complete with overhead shower.
Bedrooms 2 and 3 are in the other ‘wing’ of the property and are again very spacious with direct access to the pool area.
The very well equipped family bathroom serves these two bedrooms.
In addition there is a 4th room which is currently being used as an office but which could easily be adapted to a 4th bedroom.
The size of the bungalow, including the veranda and carport is 246 sqm. Purchase of the high quality furniture is negotiable. If the interior is not impressive enough then the exterior is simply breathtaking.
Beautifully landscaped, and with a plot measuring 3,008m2, the bungalow is surrounded by luxuriant shrubs and trees including fruit trees such as pomegranate, walnut and fig.
The pool area is delightful and is overlooked by the 70m2 covered veranda which has been tastefully completed with stone pillars. As the veranda is west facing it is the ideal place for protection from the fierce Mediterranean sun and for watching the spectacular sunsets whilst enjoying a pre dinner Brandy Sour – the traditional Cyprus drink.
The pool itself measures 10m x 4m and benefits from a solar cover as well as Roman steps which make entering the pool a much more elegant procedure than clambering down a ladder!
This area is lit after dark, which gives it an almost mystical and romantic feeling. Another very important feature to bear in mind is the garage and covered carport – again essential for protection from the sun.
The village of Kathikas lies on the west coast of Cyprus half way between the crystal clear water and beaches at Latchi on the north coast and the golden beaches of Coral Bay on the south coast. The village itself with its restaurants shops and cashpoint facilities is within easy walking distance of the bungalow and Paphos International airport can be reached within 35 minutes by road
