Municipality of Sfakia, Chania, Crete



The residence is located in a nice neighborhood in the plateau Askifou of the Municipality Sfakia, at an altitude of about 700 m. The location is about half an hour from Chora Sfakion, 50 minutes from the city Rethymno and one hour's drive from Chania. However, the villages of the plateau have enough permanent residents and all the necessary shops to make your stay comfortable throughout the year. The property is part of an old traditional complex of three residences that share a beautiful courtyard. The residences have a common entrance. You can separate the house from the complex if you construct a rear entrance and fencing, if you want to have privacy.

The house is situated on a plot of 242 m² and is available for sale with a second, adjacent plot of 272 m². Between them there is an old cobbled street. On the unbuilt plot you can build and you can construct a second residence of up to 280 m². There is remaining buildable area on the plot with the existing building in case you want to expand it.

In the courtyard of the home there are a big mulberry and a walnut tree. The old bathroom, which was later constructed, is in a small room outside the house. This space can be joined to the residence so that it can be accessed from the interior or can be configured in order to be used as a storehouse or boiler room. In the courtyard there are also a wine press, an old wood oven and a traditional cistern, which was used to collect water.

Inside the residence we find a large central room, which is connected to the other rooms. The building has high ceilings and some of the rooms are divided into loft and lower floor. In summary, there are a loft that was used as a bedroom with two storerooms below, another multi-purpose room with a storeroom below and the kitchen. The house is orientated to the east, from where there are nice views of the green surrounding hills. If you remove the cistern, you can construct windows on almost all sides so that the residence will become bright and all the spaces will have natural light. The property has excellent features that allow you to build a wonderful home with many traditional elements.

The area has many locations of historical and folklore interest as well as hiking trails in the wild landscape of the Cretan inland. It is also a good starting point for excursions to the coastal areas of Sfakia and is not completely cut off from the northern part of the island.
