This beautiful home has served many purposes during its lifetime. Once the home of the richest man in Kelokedara, the village school, village hospital and home of the local midwife and offices for the visiting Doctor – the walls can tell many stories … Now it enjoys providing a grand space from where you can savour all that a very special Cypriot Village has to offer. From stone cottages and cobbled streets to vine covered courtyards – if you are looking to escape and relax in a truly Cypriot setting then this is the perfect retreat for you.
Entrance is via a large traditional gate where your eyes immediately widen to take in the spectacular views and grand terrace on offer at this beautiful home. Sunsets from this terrace will surprise you every day and there are many cosy areas and terraces from which to enjoy the view of the sloping hills, village rooftops down to the local church.
The wonder continues as you enter your new home via the grand door you are immersed in the cosy character of this property. Thick walls, stone floors and large windows providing enough light to showcase the stone walls and traditional wooden ceilings at their best. In the living area there is ample space for winter dining where warmth is provided by a wood burning stove. A decorative spiral staircase leads up to the first floor accommodation. The current owners sympathetic interior design offers traditional touches with a modern twist – very shabby chic!
Through a traditional wooden door and you enter the traditional kitchen area. The cooking and cleaning areas are kept separate. Access to the terrace from the kitchen is provided by a door way from where you can serve your friends and family their traditional fayre. This ground floor accommodation is finished with a large bathroom suite.
The expansive outdoor living area leads down to a terraced garden full of interest. Fruit trees, clever planting and design ensures that the views are framed in foliage and small nooks provide quiet seating areas. There is an outbuilding here ready for conversion to a studio, office or further guest accommodation.
Access to the first floor can be via the grand spiral staircase in the living area or via the traditional external staircase in keeping with older times when you kept your livestock on the ground floor and lived above on the first floor.
There are two large bedrooms, separated by a large landing currently used as a study, with feature stone walls and traditional finishes throughout. Luxury can be found in the bathroom on this floor, modernised and offering a view whilst you bathe via two large windows. To add to the romance there is a Juliet balcony again maximising on the stunning vista, further proof that this is a place of rest and relaxation.
The welcoming home extends to a two bedroom guest suite with a separate access. The discerning current owner has converted one of the outbuildings, to a very high standard, to accommodate friends and family during their stay. Stone walls, warm wooden beams and cool clean tiles offer a relaxing space to visitors after a day at the beach or enjoying a hillside walk.
Viewing here is highly recommended to fully appreciate the ambiance and charisma of this beautiful property.
