A sweeping drive large enough for at least 5 cars, leads to large hand carved Indian doors opening via the utility room into a large open plan kitchen/dining area and lounge. The very generously sized kitchen has a granite topped island housing a large Falcon range cooker complete with 6 gas rings as well as copious amounts of storage space. Other features of this superbly equipped kitchen include a BOSCH dishwasher, GORENGE fridge/freezer and sliding doors leading directly to the beautifully designed outside area. Incidentally the LG washing machine can be found in the utility room.
The focal point of the lounge diner is the wood burner which is surrounded by imposing stonework adding to the charm and character of the room. In addition this area boasts 2 settees and an individually designed coffee table as well as a delightful glass topped dining table.
All of the bedrooms are large and two of them can be found on the ground floor in the western wing of this outstanding property. One of the bedrooms is currently being used as an office – ideally sized for this purpose. Next to this bedroom is the family cloakroom and a corridor leads to the second ground floor bedroom complete with walk in shower unit, a large amount of built in wardrobes and sliding doors to the veranda. This veranda is the ideal place in which to relax with a cooling glass of lemonade, while enjoying the mid-day sun and watching the sun reflect on the azure, sparkling Mediterranean.
The 2 largest bedrooms are on the first floor and are very special indeed.
The huge master bedroom boasts a four poster bed, high ceilings, an en-suite bathroom which includes a walk-in shower cubicle as well as granite sink surround, AND an enormous balcony from where the wonderful sunsets can be enjoyed either prior to, or after a delicious evening meal prepared using the wonderful local Cyprus produce.
The final bedroom also includes a massive balcony giving equally impressive views as the master plus an en-suite shower room. As is the case with the master, there is wardrobe space aplenty.
Let us look at the outside area which is equally as imposing as the interior and is ideal for social entertaining with the 12m x 5 m pool and the surrounding illuminated area – absolutely ideal for pool parties in the balmy summer evenings.
The current owners walk to the local amenities in the village of Lysos each morning whilst the traditional town of Polis complete with its quaint square and major facilities can be reached in 20 minutes by car.
The world renowned marina of Latchi, famous for its exciting aqua sports and crystal clear waters is a mere 25 minutes drive away .
