EXCLUSIVE, PALATIAL, OPULENT and MAGNIFICENT are just four adjectives which can be used to described this absolutely stunning 5 bedroom, detached villa located close to the beach in the much sought after area of Argaka, 7 km to the north east of Polis on the north west coast of Cyprus. Featured as an Exclusive Property on the TV programme A Place in the Sun.
Built on a plot of 2,035m2 and with a COVERED AREA of 435m2 this luxurious property is being sold fully furnished and with full TITLE DEEDS. The property has been built and located with privacy to the fore, so much so that the writer of this description was not aware of its existence until recently, having lived in the area for the last 15 years.
Benefiting from gated security this stunning villa offers superb views over the sparkling Mediterranean sea and to the foothills of the imposing Troodos mountains which serve as a powerful backdrop.
As soon as one enters the grounds of this marvellous property one cannot help but be stunned by the beautifully tendered and lovingly maintained colourful landscaped gardens. The communal gardens include numerous shaded areas, stylish shrubbery and trees and plenty of areas for relaxation. Musical evenings are regularly held here and when lit, this area takes on an almost ethereal quality. The spacious garden area immediately to the front of the villa has fruit trees as well as delightful flora and fauna all accentuated by the innovative use of stone built pathways. All of this adds to the character and appearance of these attractive features.
Once through the double doors it is the sheer opulence of the property which becomes so immediately apparent. From the marble floors to the granite worktops, and the size of the rooms to the hand finished Italian furniture everything shouts CLASS.
The first room one encounters is a bedroom to the right of the entrance hall. This bedroom, as indeed is the case with each bedroom is a very generously sized double, complete with en suite walk in shower unit, plenty of built in wardrobes and a flat screen TV.
To the left of the hallway and just inside the front door is a large and modern stylish cloakroom.
This hallway leads to the lounge/dining area. It includes a magnificent granite topped dining table with enough room to easily accommodate 8 diners, a marble surround fireplace with fully functioning log burner – ideal for creating a cozy atmosphere during the short Cyprus winter.
Magnificent chandeliers and subdued lighting add to the subtle atmosphere of this impressive room as do the crushed velvet settees and armchairs, the SONY cinema sized TV, full length mirrors and top quality rugs and carpets. Numerous glass fronted display cabinets and tastefully selected objets d’art complete the opulent appearance of this extremely generously sized lounge. Most of the furniture is hand made and imported from Italy.
Sliding doors lead to the partially covered veranda which stretches the entire width of the lounge and kitchen and overlooks the pool.
The superbly equipped kitchen includes a delightful granite topped breakfast bar, a granite circular dining table and other high quality white goods including built-in microwave and conventional oven, as well as a MIELE American style fridge/freezer. A very large storeroom completes the rooms on this floor.
A majestic staircase leads to the first floor and this is where three of the bedrooms can be found. As we approach the top of the stairs, there is a delightful landing with stained glass windows. Incidentally, stained glass windows are an attractive feature throughout this superb property as indeed is the large number of windows which add to the light and fresh appearance of the villa.
To the right of the top of the stairs is bedroom 2 with modern en suite shower facilities, flat screen TV and a door leading to a picturesque balcony shared with the third bedroom.
Bedroom 3 also includes an en suite shower facility and a delightful crushed velvet armchair. Sliding doors lead to the shared balcony. This balcony, as with each of the rooms on this floor offers lovely sea views.
Bedroom 4, lies at the far end of a mezzanine balcony overlooked by delightful stained glass windows and is regarded as the master bedroom. The size of this room is really something to behold with features including a king sized double bed – a huge mirror stands above the head of the bed, a SAMSUNG flat screen TV and sliding doors to a private balcony. Again superb sea views can be enjoyed from here. We should highlight the en suite facilities which include a sunken bath, a sit down shower unit and a separate room with a bidet – one the very few properties with a bidet that we have encountered in Cyprus. Incidentally there are heated towel rails here which is the case in each of the w.c/shower/bathrooms
This amazing property is constructed on four levels so we will continue to the top level which includes a kitchenette complete with sink and leads through a door to the roof terrace. This roof terrace gives the most breath-taking 360 degree views from Latchi to the west towards Droushia to the south, Lysos and Peristerona in the east and to the north, Turkey where, on a clear day one can see the Turkish coast.
The lower ground floor has everything one could ask for, indeed it can be used as a self-contained apartment.
A kitchen superbly equipped with modern appliances leads to the lounge diner, but en route we come to the cloakroom, a separate walk in shower room, and the piece de resistance – a 4 person sauna!!
This in turn takes us to a very large, magnificently equipped bedroom. Doors lead from this area up steps to the pool – the perfect location.
At the start of this description we described the gardens at the front of the house, now we should concentrate on the rear of the house and the garden area there. We mentioned the partially covered veranda the style and appearance of which has been enhanced by the addition of Roman style pillars. Those who wish for a little shade should sit under the covered area whilst the dedicated sun worshipper can luxuriate in the ultra violet rays in the uncovered part.
To the left of the veranda is a magnificent covered gazebo with features including a mobile BBQ, in built Kleftco oven, microwave, and a table large enough to easily accommodate 10 people - perfect for al-fresco dining and hosting pool parties in the long hot Cyprus summers evenings.
Now we come to the very large HEATED pool. This also benefits from whirlpool spa, Roman steps and recently added attractive decking. A shower is available to be used before and after bathing. The surrounding area is also lit which reinforces its suitability for hosting pool parties.
A series of steps leads to the next level which is a delightful glade with numerous trees, stone features and many nooks and crannies ideal for relaxation and contemplation. Decked areas complete with tables and chairs offer the ideal location for picnics.
More steps lead to another level and a wooden bridge which crosses a stonework gully which during the rainy seasons water falls, adding to the sense of serenity and peace.
Another feature which should be highlighted is the large covered car parking area. Covered parking is very important in Cyprus bearing in the mind the fierce unrelenting summer sun. Current there is a servants quarters in a separate Bungalow
A sandy beach and restaurant is a short drive from here and local shops are less than 5 minutes drive away.
The upmarket marina of Latchi famous for its exciting aqua sports and crystal clear water is 15 minutes drive from here and the world famous Akamas National Park can be reached within 20 minutes.
To summarise, this is an incredible 5 bedroom property with all en suite bathrooms plus a guest cloakroom, privacy, the last word in luxury and stunning views. SIMPLY MAGNIFICENT!!
