Wonderful detached bungalow with pool in green north western Crete
|Living Area:||156 m²|
Set in an idyllic position at the start of the popular village of Kokkino Horio, nestling under the Draponakefala Hill, and with views to the White Mountains, the traditional village, Souda Bay and rural countryside, this beautiful, spacious, bright and airy two bedroom bungalow is a delightful and most comfortable home.
Located on a 1689 sqm plot, the bungalow is 111 sqm, plus 20sqm of covered terraces and a superb roof terrace of some 60 sqm.
Entering the bungalow through the large wrought iron gates, the long paved driveway leads to the main entrance where you find a large, high ceiling-ed entrance hall with useful floor to ceiling storage cupboards. From here immediately to your left is the spacious open plan lounge/kitchen/dining area, with a wonderful high vaulted wooden ceiling, adding to the feeling of spaciousness which the bungalow provides. The large kitchen is attractively finished with ample wood cabinets, worktops and white goods, and a glass display unit. It has views to the pool, patios and terrace, rear garden and hillside.

The lounge/diner has a lovely wood burning stove, triple aspect windows, and double patio doors leading to a large covered terrace which overlooks the swimming pool, the garden beyond, the village and Souda Bay.
