Sold : Detached Villa - Polis, Lysos
This magnificent detached villa stands in the hill village of Lysos, has full TITLE DEEDS and commands views which can only be described as outstanding. Available FULLY FURNISHED.
What makes the views so special from this property is that in whichever room you go in the front of the house the views are outstanding. How is this possible? Well the property was built to take advantage of the location so the maximum number of windows have been installed at the front of the villa, on both floors and the result is absolutely stunning views.
The villa lies at the end of a no through road and steps lead from the road level to the front garden and a walk along the short pathway leads to the front door. Once through the front door one is immediately struck by the sheer size of the open plan lounge/diner.
The lounge contains a gas fire complete with remote control, a 3 piece suite, LGF flat screen TV, video and DVD player as well as a generous number of easy chairs and a coffee table. Numerous windows spread around the lounge to allow as much light at possible into this room and patio doors lead directly to the rear patio. This patio is THE place to enjoy an al-fresco breakfast while watching the sun rise in the east. The diner is large and airy and can easily accommodate 8 people.
The superbly designed and very well equipped kitchen which has only recently been refurbished, includes a BOSCH washing machine and dish washer, gas hob, NEFF oven, multipurpose microwave, and LIEBHER fridge/freezer. There are plenty of cupboards and storage space as well as top quality worktops. A door leads from the kitchen to the back patio.
Also downstairs is a spacious sun room which can be accessed directly from the lounge. This room is south facing so attracts the sun throughout the day and, as can be seen from the photo has the most attractive wooden beamed ceilings which add to the character of the room. There is the possibility of converting this sunroom into another bedroom and this room already has pipes laid under the floor to allow for the construction of en-suite facilities.
A handily placed guest cloakroom completes the rooms on the ground floor.
At the top of the stairs is the large office space with large windows.The current owner uses the office on a regular basis and tells with pride of how whenever he looks up from his work, the magnificent views over the stunningly blue Mediterranean and the local countryside are there before him. This office space could easily be converted into another bedroom.
On either side of the office are the bedrooms. Each is a double, and each has its own balcony. The master bedroom has en suite shower facilities and the family bathroom complete with overhead shower completes the rooms on this floor.
One very unusual feature of this property is the recently refurbished, HEATED 8m x 4m swimming pool complete with Roman steps.
There are two terraces with stone finished columns supporting the covered veranda adding to the charm of the property
Other features in the delightful, landscaped garden which should be highlighted are the attractive trees and shrubbery, the numerous covered seating areas and the stone walls surrounding the gardens, as well as a stone BBQ.
In addition to the usual features we should mention the wooden shutters in the office which are used as protection against the fierce sunlight at the height of the summer, the false ceiling in the family bathroom which allows extra storage space, double glazing, fly screens throughout, air conditioning and ceiling fans.
