For Sale : Detached Villa - Polis, Droushia
This superb 3 bedroom character stone built villa is located in a very quiet part of the traditional mountain village of Droushia It comes with full Title Deeds and offers stunning views towards the mountains and magnificent sea views over the sparkling blue Mediterranean in Polis Bay.
Regular property purchasers will be familiar with the description of a house as having ‘character’ and it is difficult to be exact with a definition of that term but if any house has ‘character’ then this one does.
Originally built in the 1930’s and modernised in 2005 the stone construction means that it is warmer in winter and cooler in summer.
The villa is located in a small cul-de-sac with two other adjoining properties but as the saying goes unless you knew the property was here you would never see it.
Double gates lead to the driveway which is easily large enough to accommodate 3 cars.
A covered veranda at the front of the villa stretching the width of the house is the ideal place to sit with an early morning cup of coffee and a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice listening to the silence!
This really is a fascinating property as it could be used in two different ways. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 of which are on the ground floor and the third on the first floor, but in addition to the third bedroom on the first floor there is also a kitchen area, lounge and shower room so this could be used as a separate apartment should the need arise
Once through the front door it is the attention to detail and the meticulous care which has been taken to make this property so special which becomes immediately apparent.
The first room we come to is the dining room currently havinga dining table large enough to seat 6 diners with ease.
Another factor which makes this villa so out of the ordinary is the fact that the lounge, diner and kitchen are independent rooms.
To the right of the diner is the lounge currently having a very comfortable 3 piece suite and various other pieces of furniture, but the focal point is the stone surround fireplace housing a fully functioning log burner – ideal for keeping the chill off and creating a cozy atmosphere during the short Cyprus winter months.
To the left of the diner is the very well equipped kitchen. White goods are included in the advertised price and these include a SAMSUNG washing machine, BEKTO tumble dryer LG fridge/freezer a table for 4 people and a double sink. The fact that a dining table for 4 is in the kitchen in addition to the one in the dining area gives a good idea of the size of the kitchen.
A corridor with doors opening onto the lovely garden leads to the 2 ground floor bedrooms and W.C/bathroom. The first room along this corridor is the generously sized family bathroom complete with bath and overhead shower.
.Next to the bathroom is the flight of marble stairs leading to the first floor. The modern finished w.c is the next room and then we come to the second bedroom. Each of the 3 bedrooms boasts fitted wardrobes and a 4 poster bed adding even more ‘character’ to the property.
The master bedroom is huge and offers lovely sea views as well as a ceiling fan.
Let us look in more detail at the first floor. The Kitchen includes a PITSOS washing machine and SAMSUNG fridge/freezer whilst the lounge includes a flat screen TV, settee and lovely sea views.
The bedroom offers sea and mountain views in addition to the fitted wardrobes, whilst the shower room has a larger than average walk in shower unit
Stone walls surround the plot of the property which contains its own private 6m x 4m pool and vegetable plots where the current owners grow tomatoes and vegetables.
We should point out that the property benefits from a pressurised water system, a freshly installed immersion heather , electric storage heaters and a 3kw array of solar panels which vastly reduces the electricity bill. On average the electricity bills are €35 every 2 months.
This is the ideal property for those who want to experience the traditional way of life in Cyprus and yet be close to amenities. The local shops and tavernas are less than 5 minutes’ walk from here, while the major town of Polis and the world famous upmarket marina of Latchi renowned for its sparkling clear water and exciting aqua sports can be reached in 15 minutes by car.
