Restoration project in Fres, Crete for sale

Property type: Old/Ruin
ID: AH278
Land Plot Area:542m²
Built Area:130m²

This renovation project is ideally situated in the quiet hamlet of Koukos. It is only a short walk from the village of Fres, at the foot of the White Mountains in the Apokoronas region. The 130 sqm property, with unobstructed panoramic views, has great potential for restoration to a spacious villa or a two-storey house with a separate, self-contained apartment. Its terraced land has its own well and a variety of established, mature trees.

There is an intricate network of paths in the vicinity. The road past the property continues to the hillside church of Agia Marina and, within ten metres of the house, the start of an old kalderimi leads alongside the Fres gorge towards the rugged, mountainous interior, with its mix of fertile plains and hillsides covered in olive groves, wild flowers and aromatic herbs.

Fres itself has a large, open square (plateia) and offers a range of amenities: tavernas, kafenions and shops, including a baker and butcher, as well as a school and an information centre (KEP) where English is spoken. It is on the bus route to the city of Chania, which can be reached in about half an hour by car. There is a qualified Mountain Leader in Fres who takes locals and tourists from all over Europe on hikes and treks of various degrees of difficulty.The location of this house makes it ideal for walkers or for the artist or writer who seeks a peaceful and tranquil setting.
