For Sale : Stone House - Polis, Neo Chorio
For anyone wishing to live in a traditional house in a traditional Cyprus village look no further than this 200 YEAR OLD, 2 bedroom, STONE BUILT HERITAGE house with stunning mountain views in Neo Chorio. TITLE DEEDS
Neo Chorio lies on the north – western tip of the island on the edge of the beautiful and unspoilt Akamas National Park. The ancient church of St. Minas lies in the middle of the village and there are two tavernas, two general stores and two coffee shops. At the last census the population of Neo Chorio was 519 (2011).
The property itself consists of two buildings. In effect there is the equivalent of a self-contained apartment on each of the two floors of the main building and a separate stone built kitchen/diner.
As the property is stone built the walls are immensely thick meaning that in the summer the property is remarkably cool and in the short Cyprus winter the villa retains a large percentage of its heat.
There is entry from street level which takes one to the delightful lounge with its charming beamed ceiling and includes a fully functional fireplace and chimney - ideal for creating a warm and cozy atmosphere
Next to the lounge is the shower room complete with all the usual features and a walk in shower unit. Opposite the shower room is the very usefully placed kitchenette, and at the rear of this floor is the very generously sized bedroom.
Doors lead from the bedroom to a balcony and it is from this balcony that the amazing mountain views can best be enjoyed. Just imagine sitting here with a cup of coffee and a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice early on a summers morning and then in the evening enjoying a pre-dinner gin and tonic prior to walking to one of the traditional Cypriot tavernas for a wonderful dinner.
Steps lead from this balcony to the lower lever which contains a further lounge, bedroom and shower room.
Just across the courtyard is the separate very well equipped kitchen/diner complete with oven and extractor and gas hob.
As can be seen from the photos there is a very large courtyard on the lower level which contains a traditional oven – ideal for baking and for cooking Kleftico. The stone finishes throughout the courtyard add to the character of this wonderful step back in time.
Double gates lead to the courtyard on the lower level and this is where the off road parking can be enjoyed.
All local amenities can be reached within a few minutes’ walk, the beaches and crystal clear waters at Latchi are 5 minutes drive away and the banks and supermarkets in Polis just a 10 minute drive.
An ideal property for those who value tradition.
