This property is located near the village of
(named after Backus the god of wine and revelry), and a
traditional rural Cretan villages.
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.
