The Old Olive Oil Factory in Vamos was once a fully working olive oil mill and rather grand family home. It is in walking distance to the heart of the village and sits in 4000m2 of land. It has 5 bedrooms (with space for more) and 2 bathrooms (again space for more). In its present condition the house is habitable, but in need of modernisation.

Entrance to the property is through an arched gateway which leads to a good sized, private courtyard from which you can enter the garage, olive oil factory, kitchen and lounge areas. There are also steps to your right which lead up to the first large terrace area. The courtyard has huge potential to be a beautiful garden / outdoor dining area.

Kitchen – accessed from the courtyard and the huge garden area the kitchen is functional at present and is a good size with units all along one wall in pale green wood. There is a large family dining table in the centre of the room and Cretan style sofas against 2 walls as well. It has a stone floor in good condition.

Just off the kitchen is a small hallway / coat storage area, and just to the left is the bathroom. This is a decent size and functional but will require modernisation. It has a shower, washing machine, loo and sink.

The hallway leads to the lounge which boasts a striking onyx floor in pristine condition, plus many original pieces of furniture, large family dining table and chairs, sideboard, Cretan sofas, glass light shades, and doors leading out to the veranda garden side and back out to the courtyard.

Bedrooms 1 and 2. These are both off the lounge area. Bedroom 1 is a very good sized double and Bedroom 2 a good size double with wonderful original bed with silver detailing on it.

Upstairs is via a white staircase in the corner of the lounge and this leads to 3 further bedrooms and another bathroom. Bedroom 3 is a large double and the 4 and 5 double. All have wooden ceilings and 2 floor to ceiling fitted wardrobes. Bedroom 5 has access to its own large terrace at the rear of the property.

The bathroom has a bath, sink and loo.

From the corridor you gain access to the large terrace area, with stairs back down to the courtyard. The terrace has views of surrounding countryside and the White Mountains.

Garden – This is a huge blank canvas of a space, the owner thinks approx. 2000m2, much of it lawned but also including pomegranate, orange, mandarin, lemon trees, plus grape vines. There is ample space for pool, vegetable plot, more fruit trees etc.

Garage and Factory – these are both accessed from the courtyard. The factory has original wooden ceiling and many original features and fittings remain. It provides an opportunity for further development of the site, depending on the new owners desired usage.

The Old Olive Oil Factory is a large home which requires some updating to take it back to former glories, but is in habitable now, so could be lived in whilst work took place. It can obviously work as a large family home, or is very viable as a commercial opportunity – holiday rental, with the potential to add beds and bathrooms, or possibly restaurant / café area.
