A beautiful new property with Beyler & Co located in a quiet area of Alsancak. Originally built in 1928 the owners of this Villa have created a very comfortable home oozing with character and kept the tasteful Cypriot style and charm but added all necessary modern appliances and fittings.
Highly individual; a light, bright, airy house, built for the Cypriot climate, with metre thick stone walls that keep it cool in summer and warm in the winter.
Renovated to offer a modern standard of living while retaining the best features of a traditional house, this very comfortable home has three double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms; sitting room, hallway and large kitchen diner. Externally there is an additional kitchen, shower room and store, 10x 5 meter swimming pool, gardens and driveway for three cars.
The entire plot is slightly under 1 donum, situated in a peaceful cul de sac, surrounded by similarly large traditional houses, orchards and gardens, ensuring privacy, peace and quiet. The village with its restaurants, shops and cafés is approximately ten minutes’ walk away. A stroll in the foothills is approximately the same distance and the sea a ten minute drive away at most.
A most attractive feature of this property is the well maintained, manicured garden and large swimming pool area. It is a very private space that boasts local flora and fauna and isn’t overlooked at all.
All taxes have been paid, and the house is registered on the Kocan which is in the owners’ names.
A complete one off opportunity in a gorgeous location.
All white goods are included and some furniture is available by separate negotiation.

An archway leads to the Kitchen Diner.

The kitchen diner has windows onto the street and side gardens with views to the Kyrenia range from both. A well-lit area with ceiling fan has an extensive range of wall and base cupboards and ample workspace.
A handy breakfast bar, with wine rack and cupboard under, is positioned so as to offer additional workspace when hosting a dinner party in the dining area: on the other hand, if dining-a-deux is the order of the day, it is the ideal spot to chat and relax over a meal. There are ample wall sockets and plumbing for a dishwasher, washing machine and a free standing gas or electric cooker.
Bedroom Three 3.00m (9' 10") x 5.11m (16' 9")

The rear of the house boasts a large courtyard/patio partially shaded by a very productive Cypriot Satsuma tree. A delightful spot to sit sipping a brandy sour or gin and tonic whilst the barbecue sizzles.
A separate building to the side of the courtyard provides external Kitchen, shower room, and store room. The store room provides the ideal place for keeping garden tools, suitcases etc.

With antique stained glass windows to front, work surfaces, cupboards, drawers and sink, this is an extremely imaginative addition. The owners use it in the summer for storing and preparing foods for barbecues and pool side meals. In the winter they use it to store garden furniture.
Attached is a shower room.
Shower Room 2.38m (7' 10") x 1.00m (3' 3")
Why trail through the house from the garden to have a pre-dip shower? Pop into this one to wash off the suntan lotion. It has a walk in tiled shower, wc and wash hand basin.
Adjacent to the Kitchen is a Store room.
Gardens & Poolside
The gardens have been laid out to provide shady seating areas, and a wide variety of plants, colour and concepts. To the right of the plot is a 10x5 metre skimmer pool with roman steps. Built into the pool terrace is a seven ton water tank used to capture excess water from the pool during the winter rains that can then be used to top up the pool in summer or for watering the garden.
Adjacent to the pool is a terraced garden with shrubs and flowers. A large almond tree supplies all the nuts you could want for your personal consumption, marzipan for the Christmas Cake and keeping the local bird life happy.
The left-hand side of the garden is laid to gravel with a pretty paved seating arbour. A small, newly planted mini-orchard completes the plot with olive, plum, citrus trees and herbs.
To the right of the house is a further small garden area which accommodates trees and shrubs, a 3.5 ton water tank and the spiral staircase leading to the roof terrace with its fabulous panoramic views.
