The Property

Once upon a time this was the main olive oil press of the area, this building is now used to house the village sheep overnight. The original stone building, built into bedrock and commanding superb mountain and sea views holds a prominent place over the sleepy village of Vachos. Although at first glance the impression is of dereliction, the cement roof and floors are good, the stone walls have stood the test of over 200 years, and as the building is inside the village boundary there is the possibility to build up or out. The property is situated in over 850m2 of sloping land. Good rich soil lends a promise of exotic and prolific gardens. Due to its unique situation the wonderful view of sea and mountains can never be obscured.

The building comprises of 6 rooms, 5 on the ground and one above. There are also 2 old water bowsers on the first floor that could be converted to plunge pools or water features. The roof of the main building is level with the small village road at the back which comes from Amiras.

Both domestic and agricultural water are connected and it had electricity which was disconnected when the factory closed. It would not be difficult or expensive to have the electricity reconnected. Professional builder and building yard are both in the very near vicinity for the convenience of a client with imagination and wishing to invest in a property with great potential and character.
