For Sale : Detached Villa - Paphos, Fyti
For those searching for property in THE REAL CYPRUS look no further than this outstanding 3 bedroom detached villa in the traditional village of Fyti, on the edge of the Paphos forest.
The property comes with TITLE DEEDS, white goods included, furniture by negotiation.
With a vineyard in the adjoining plot and the nearest visible property at least 600 metres away this property represents all that is best in Cyprus living.
The villa stands in the middle of an attractively fenced plot which has a mature, landscaped garden and includes delightful shrubs as well as orange, mandarin and lemon trees. It should also be mentioned that this is a very easily maintained garden with a timed irrigation system. The centre of attention in the front garden are the 3 oak trees. Indeed the property is known by locals as ‘Oak Trees’
The great thing about the position of the villa is that it is ideal for both sun worshippers and those who prefer a little respite from the ultra violet rays. One of the features which should be highlighted is the delightful west facing veranda which offers the most amazing view of the spectacular sunsets.
Just imagine sitting here of a summers evening enjoying a refreshing gin and tonic watching the sun disappear over the horizon in a blazing red ball of fire.
There is no pool here but there is a hot tub/Jacuzzi which can be used all year round, either summer or winter.
Once through the imposing double doors of the property it is the attention to detail and the quality of the finishes which become immediately apparent.
To the right is the dining area containing a table large enough to easily accommodate 6 people. On the same side of the house is the very well equipped kitchen including a double sink, an AEG oven, IKON tropical fridge/freezer. The washing machine is housed in a cupboard just outside the kitchen to free up as much space as possible in the kitchen so as to allow time for cooking the delicious Cyprus food. The hob in the kitchen includes 3 gas rings and one electric ring – very unusual and extremely practical. Don’t forget that the kitchen goods are included in the asking price.
To the left of the front door is the very generously sized lounge. This currently includes a very attractive 3 piece suite, flat screen TV and remote controlled Live-in flame gas fire. The property also has gas central heating so all eventualities are covered for the winter months.
The first of the bedrooms can be found on the ground floor. This is currently being used as an office and has plenty of wardrobe space as well as two windows offering delightful views to the surrounding countryside and over the garden. Next to the office is the family shower room, which could easily be converted to en suite should anyone so wish. Tucked away under the stairs is a storage room
The remaining two bedrooms are on the first floor. Both are of excellent size, have plenty of wardrobe space, superbly equipped en suite shower rooms complete with heated towel rails, and both have patio doors leading to a shared balcony which again gives the most amazing mountain views. The current owners love to tell of sitting on the balcony prior to retiring and just looking up at the abundance of stars. Of course being in such an unspoilt area there is very little light pollution. To add the finishing touches to this lovely villa there is the very large ROOF TERRACE complete with electric points. Just imagine taking a drinks cooler onto the roof terrace and BBQ and it would be perfect for entertaining friends on a sultry summers evening.
The village of Fyti is located in the north west corner of the island, 20 minutes drive from Polis and 25 minutes drive to Paphos. It is 5 minutes walk from the property to the village which contains two tavernas, a folk art museum and weaving centre. As is the case with many traditional Cyprus villages the large church stands in the centre of the village. In the census of 2011 the population of Fyti was recorded as 150!
All in all this is a lovely property ideally suited to those who wish to experience the REAL CYPRUS
