For Sale €250,000 + Expenses - House
A rare opportunity to get a beautiful part-restored, village house in the traditional village of Douliana. The home is very spacious, 236sqm, and involves 3 bedrooms, 2 unfinished rooms and adjacent garden areas. A nice, olive grove of 1,171 sqm is included on the selling price but is not attached to the property.
The home is sitted on a small path in Douliana, just a two-minute walk to the village centre. The plot is 489 sqm with nice rear and side garden areas. The nearby olive grove is a a non-buildable 1,171 sqm plot with 27 productive and well-kept trees. There is access to it either by road (approx 800m) or on foot (approx 400m). Parking is adjacent to the home and a part of the adjacent side garden could also be cleared for parking space.
Restored part: The home is a family property and it was originally built by the owner’s great grandfather. The restoration has been done to retain the traditional character of the house and its fine traditional features including massive stone arches and the unique style of older, village homes. At the moment, the main structure has been restored with two bedrooms and a mezzanine bedroom, a single shower room and a large utility room.
Renovation potentials: There are two additional rooms on the north side of the home that have not been renovated. The ground floor room can be connected to the sitting room/lounge by re-opening the old doorway. One of the terraces on the first floor could be closed in to allow internal access to both of the first floor rooms (the one that is finished as well as the presently unfinished room).
The home has central heating installed, plus a large solar panel for hot water. The garden areas are ideal for planting your own veggies, herbs, flowers and even some fruit or citrus trees. The olive grove will provide a more than ample supply of your own virgin olive oil.
