Sold : Detached Villa - Polis, Argaka
This outstanding 3 bedroom detached villa is located close to the beach, in a cul-de-sac a short drive from the much sought after area of Argaka, 15 minutes’ drive to the east of Polis and offers stunning sea and mountain views. LARGE UPSTAIRS TERRACE.
The property which is less than 5 minutes’ walk to the beach, is being offered FULLY FURNISHED, and comes with full TITLE DEEDS.
When the current owners bought this property 3 years ago they undertook a major refurbishment project and the result is this superb property.
Being in a cul-de-sac means that there is very little passing traffic and peace and tranquillity are guaranteed.
The approach to the property is very imposing with stone pillars surrounding the entrance porch.
Once through the front door it is the size of the open plan lounge/kitchen/diner which is so impressive.
The diner includes a table large enough to easily accommodate 6 people whilst pride of place in the beautifully furnished lounge has to go to the log burner encased in the elegant stone clad hearth. In addition, there are two very comfortable velour settees as well as numerous items of top quality furniture.
Patio doors lead to both the side veranda, as well as the covered veranda overlooking the pool. The side veranda is smaller than the main veranda but it is south west facing so it is easy to follow the sun all day long.
The extra-large very well-equipped and modern kitchen includes double sink, granite worktops and stools, a BOSCH fridge/freezer, BALAY washing machine, BOSCH dishwasher, BALAY cooker and 4 ring gas hob.
A very handily placed guest cloakroom completes the rooms on the ground floor.
The three bedrooms are all doubles and are all on the first floor. One striking feature of this lovely villa is the generous area on the landing which is being currently used as an office with both computer and printer located there.
The master bedroom includes a modern en suite shower room including a heated towel rail, plenty of wardrobe space and perhaps most importantly, sliding doors leading to its own sea facing balcony. Just imagine sitting here last thing at night enjoying a final drink of the day and then just strolling back into the room and going to bed.
Bedroom 2 shares the 8.9m x 3.8m sea facing balcony with the master bedroom and again has plenty of wardrobe space. In addition to the sea views this room also offers views over the adjoining countryside.
The striking feature of the third bedroom is the very high ceilings and similar countryside views. The superbly finished family bathroom lies between the 2nd and 3rd bedroom and this also includes a heated towel rail.
And now we come to the piece de resistance – the very generously sized Upstairs terrace.
This very large terrace – possibly the largest on a property that we have marketed in the last 14 years- and it is from here that the most amazing views can best be enjoyed. During the summer in Cyprus most meals are enjoyed ‘al-fresco’ and it is hard to imagine a more ideal setting than this either for a meal for two, or for inviting friends round for a nibbles and drinks party.
Talking of entertaining, the garden has a kleftiko oven and is the perfect place for holding a poolside BBQ. Incidentally the pool which measures 8m x 4m has recently been re-lined and has Roman Steps which make entering and leaving the pool a much more graceful exercise!
The pool is overlooked by a covered terrace which gives shade from the relentless Mediterranean summer sun, whereas those dedicated sun worshippers can cover themselves with factor 50 and luxuriate by the side of the pool. The owners have installed a ‘pull-down’ blind at the western end of the terrace to provide extra shelter should the wind get up during the short Cyprus winter. Incidentally there is a full sized pool table covered by waterproof protection on this terrace.
You can also find a covered gazebo in the garden which includes a hammock – ideal for total relaxation.
The separate garage including a store room should also be highlighted. This provides covered and secure parking for a vehicle and is controlled by an electronic roller shutter.
In addition to the usual features we should point out that the mature, beautifully landscaped garden benefits from a timed irrigation system, and that the property is SELF SUFFICIENT with regards to electricity as it uses VOLTAIC panels resulting in a substantial reduction in the cost of power.
Local amenities are within walking distance in Ayia Marina and the shops in Argaka are a very short drive away.
Latchi Marina, famous for its exciting water sports and wonderful fish tavernas is 15 minutes drive from here.
