Heraklion or Heraklio is the largest city and capital of the
island of Crete. It is also the fourth largest city in Greece. Other
names receiving the city are Herakleion, Iraklion or Candia.
This villa is a beautiful, large, detached family house, uniquely positioned with enormous gardens reaching right to the sea, and the sandy beach at Adele. To the front and rear of the house, the huge 5,237sqm gardens host a variety of established flora, and are lush with mature palm trees, bamboo plantations, olive groves and a variety of shrubs and flowers. The house, positioned in the centre of alively beach resort some 6 km from the city of Heraklion, is a generous 220sqm in size.
The ground floor has an elegant living room with a stone corner fireplace and a satellite TV. To the rear of the villa there is a huge veranda overlooking the beach. The large dining kitchen of the house is fully equipped. On the ground floor there are three bedrooms, and a shared bathroom with hip-bath, shower and WC.
The first floor has a small lobby area with two bedrooms off, and there is a large veranda with sea views. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, and a small private balcony overlooking the gardens. The other double bedroom has a small seating area, en-suite shower room/hip-bath/WC and a 30sqm balcony.
At the end of the huge rear gardens, beyond the olive grove and a fringe of tall trees, there is a gate through the fence directly onto the beach. Close by, after less than 50 meters, there are sun beds and umbrellas on the beach, and a beach taverna. There is a variety of tavernas and shops, and a bus stop all within walking distance.
There are several supermarkets, cafes, restaurants and recreation areas (including a mini-golf course), all within walking distance.
The villa can be inhabited without any restoration but, because of its location (in the center of a lively beach resort, on the old national road from Rethymno to Heraklio, on the beach), this property is ideal for development. Properties with these features and of this size are simply not available in the area any more, which also makes it an excellent investment.
