This stunning property is situated in one of the oldest Venetian villages on the island which is protected by the Ministry of Culture for its rich heritage and Venetian architecture. Agios Markos, the village where it feels time has stopped, is surrounded by verdant hills full of olive and cypress trees and the stunning views from this property can be enjoyed from all its various terraces.
Ideal as a holiday home or all-year-round living, the property is located just a 5-minute drive from the beach and all amenities. It is in a quiet, peaceful, and secluded spot within the village and set within private gardens of 527 sqm. There are wonderful paved terraces all surrounded by trees, colourful shrubs and plants. A plunge pool to one side of the property also gives access to a sunny roof terrace.
Constructed with every attention to detail, this property was built in the 19th century on the ruins of a 17th Century sanctuary. With thick stone walls sourced locally, it is a wonderful example of a character house and is accessed via a flight of stone steps that pass the walls of other old Venetian properties that end at this home for sale. A cast iron gate opens into the paved entrance terrace – a sea facing, vine covered terrace and external dining area.
The property offers 196 sqm of living space over two levels. The upper level offers a spacious open plan dining area with fireplace and a fully fitted kitchen. High whitewashed exposed beamed ceilings and the numerous windows make this a wonderfully light, bright, and airy space. A doorway from here leads to a separate sitting area/TV room. This level also features a bedroom with ensuite bathroom and shower.
The lower level houses the 2nd bedroom of the main house – a double bedroom and bathroom. By the vine covered terrace is the separate guest apartment – this features its own bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and small living room and has the wonderful external area for dining.
