For sale in the hillside village of Ramni: Requiring full renovation, this recently acquired property is on the edge of an attractive hillside village approximately 15 minutes from the National Highway.
The house is of traditional styling and is approximately 113sqm in size. At present it comprises just 3 rooms – double height living room, with raised sleeping area at one end plus separate kitchen and store room. However with little change it could become a simple 1 or 2 bedroom house. Alternatively, as it is in the village, there is extra building density to a maximum of 400sqm so could be extended to become significantly larger.
A distinctive feature of this house is the attractively shaped pitched roof. The inner beams appear to be sound and could perhaps be reused to create a striking feature over either a large loft-style living room or bedrooms.
The house is set in glorious countryside with magnificent views of the rolling hillside & Lefka Ori’s snow covered peaks.
The house has a significant amount of land surrounding it. There is a good-sized flat triangle shaped area towards the village. This would make a superb vegetable garden. Immediately outside the house is a large orange tree which was smothered with bright fruit and orange blossom. The remainder of the land is to the front of the house and gradually slopes down in terraces. There are several mature conifers which add structure and character to the land.
Externally there is a stone outbuilding which could be used as a storage area, boiler room or perhaps incorporate into the main house design. There is scope to have a roof terrace from which the mountain views would be breathtaking.
The views driving to the village are superb and the village itself is welcoming. It has a taverna, cafe and the mobile shops deliver bread, vegetables and fish daily to the village square. The start of the Diktamos gorge is close-by and the beach at Kalives is approximately 8km away. It would take around 55 minutes to drive to Chania airport so a great location for holidays or permanent living.
