For Sale : Stone House - Paphos, Polemi
This TRADITIONAL 250 YEAR OLD STONE BUILT former farm property is located in Drynia on the edge of the world famous Paphos forest. It has 5 bedrooms and comes with full TITLE DEEDS and offers magnificent views of the surrounding countryside. A short drive will take you to the popular village of Polemi.
This is ideal for anyone wishing to experience the REAL CYPRUS – in the 2001 census the population of Drynia was recorded as 53!
We usually describe properties as villas, or houses but this property doesn’t fit into any of those categories. Many traditional Cyprus dwellings consist of a number of separate buildings surrounding a courtyard and this is how this particular property is designed.
Entry to the property is via a wooden front door which leads to the courtyard. To the left is the main two storey building which consists of an open plan lounge and diner. The property is being offered fully furnished. The focal point of the lounge is the log burning fireplace. The dining area has a dining table with enough space to easily accommodate 6 people. The well equipped kitchen lies next to the dining area.
An exterior staircase leads to the first floor which is where 2 of the 5 bedrooms are located. The bedrooms, both doubles offer superb countryside views and share a delightful shower room.
A covered veranda offers views over the 8m x 2.8m pool which was specifically designed for length swimming
On the opposite side of the courtyard is a one storey building which houses two more bedrooms. Each of these is of a very generous size. One has en-suite shower facilities and the other an en suite bath. These rooms have doors to the courtyard but also have access to the picturesque garden at the rear of the building. This garden is finished with delightful trees and shrubbery
The third building is to the right of the main entrance and this includes the 5th bedroom. Outside of the bedroom is a spiral staircase leading to a roof terrace which offers the most beautiful views. The current owners tell of sitting here each spare moment, day and night and letting the beauty of the countryside engulf them.
As the property is stone built the walls are extremely thick, in this case 18 inches (46 cms). This means that during the winter the property retains a great deal of heat whereas during the summer months it remains so much cooler.
The ceilings of the main rooms are made of matting and boast the most delightful beams.
This property was once the main farm in the village of Drinia and was bought by the current owners in 2003 when it had not been touched for over 20 years. In the time since then they have renovate it, including English size plumbing to the superb standard which it enjoys today.
The property is being offered fully furnished apart from a few personal possessions.
