Sold : Stone House - Polis, Neo Chorio
For those who love tradition look no further than this stone built, character one bedroom house situated a short drive to the beach in the middle of the traditional mountain village of Neo Chorio.
Built in 1912, and being offered fully furnished and with full Title Deeds, it offers staggering mountain views and is a real trip back in time. With walls of a thickness of 24 inches it ensures warmth in the winter and a cooler atmosphere in the summer.
Stone floors, plus rattan and beamed ceilings add to the overall character of this dwelling.
With a delightful courtyard accessed directly from the lounge and a seating area outside of the bedroom it not only has a fascinating construction but also plenty of outside space where one can enjoy the beautiful Cyprus weather.
This charming property is entered via double wooden doors, which lead to a delightful entrance hall. To the left of the hall is the shower room/ W.C.
We then proceed to the generously sized open plan lounge/kitchen/diner. The focal point of the lounge is the fully functioning log burner, ideal for creating a cozy ambience during the short winter months, as well as a delightful settee and 2 comfy airmchairs.
The well equipped kitchen includes a large oven complete with 4 gas rings and numerous other white goods all of which are included in the price.
Double doors lead directly to the partially vine-covered courtyard – ideal for either enjoying the unrelenting Cyprus sun or for sitting in the shade whilst enjoying a drink or reading a book.
Stairs lead to the first floor and the exterior sitting area. Incidentally the bedroom can be accessed either internally or externally. Once in the bedroom the amazing mountain views from the balcony are immediately apparent. These are views over the imposing foothills of the Troodos mountains and this balcony is the ideal place to watch the sun coming up in the morning whilst enjoying a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice and a cup of Cyprus coffee. Views to the south can be soaked up from the seating area outside of the bedroom.
Not only is this a character property in terms of age and build but its location is also ideal, being 2 minutes’ walk to a tavern in each direction and the same distance to the village supermarket.
The upmarket Marina of Latchi renowned for its exciting aqua sports and crystal clear water is 5 minutes’ drive away and residents of Neo Chorio enjoy walks into the Akamas National Park – it is that close.
To summarise, this lovely property would be ideal for someone wishing to experience traditional Cyprus living or for those who wish for a ‘project’.
