This property dates back to the late 1800s and is situated in the heart of a fully functional, traditional village, a short drive away from the largest city in Crete, Heraklion.
It is spread over various levels and offers great potential, either as a home or a rental business with fully four functional, independent studios and a common, enclosed, courtyard. It is approximately 270 m2 and has oil-based central heating, as well as a traditional wood-burning stove. The property features many unique elements, each carrying its own history. It is ideal for those seeking to purchase something truly unique, with a long history and experience the true Cretan life, yet, with all the amenities at their feet.
The village of Krousonas, in the foothills of Mount Ida, or Psiloritis, dates back to at least the 16th century. It offers views of the countryside. The small Thirathen Museum of Musical Instruments displays traditional Greek and Cretan instruments and also hosts concerts and workshops. Open-air cafes and tavernas are scattered around the village centre.
The property is merely a 20-minute drive from either the harbour or the airport.
