Unique three storey house plus a ground floor shop in the heart Old Town, a short walk to the harbour. The area of Mahairadika is a historical area of Old Town of Chania famous of the traditional Cretan knives. It was built during the Ottoman Occupation and still retains the traditional Moorish wooden structure with windows looking down onto the street below. All the front windows and the balcony look across to the Byzantine fortification and down on the street below.

The ground floor, of 24sqm, which is accessed on the main road, has the potential to be converted into a shop or business premises. The main entrance to the house is accessed from the side street at ground floor level. 

Walking up the wooden stairs the first floor is laid out as a kitchen with dining area and a sitting room at the front with a large fireplace. The second floor comprises of a good sized bedroom and bathroom. Both the first and second floor are 48sqm each. The third floor comprises of a large landing area, a bedroom with access to the balcony. This floor is also 48sqm but half the space is made up of the balcony, which gives a large outdoor space.  From the landing there is also access to the roof space. It is worth noting that all the ceilings are wooden and of the traditional design.

Unusual for these properties this house has had central heating installed, at some time in the past, with the vintage radiators still in place. The renovation that took place in 1982 maintained the traditional character of the property and paid attention to the detail with beautiful finishing. The period furniture remains in the house and is available for purchase with a separate negotiation.
