Country House for sale in Oria
***RECENTLY DRAMATICALLY REDUCED***
This sympathetically restored detached country house with 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms sits a partially fenced plot of more than 40,000 m2 of land!
The access road to this house is tarmac and it is just a 7 minute drive from the village of Oria, for all amenities, including supermarkets, bars, restaurants, post office, 24-hour doctors, municipal swimming pool, bakery etc.
The area immediately around the house, including the garden area, is fully fenced (8.000m2). On the other side of the access road, where the remainder of the land lies, a large portion of that is also fenced (16.000m2) and is planted with olives and almonds.
Approaching the property from the parking area, you enter through a pedestrian gate into a white gravelled front garden with low maintenance planting which leads around the front of the property to the right. The are multiple shaded seating zones within this area, as well as a shaded al fresco dining area, and a private walled garden around the side of the house.
Around to the left of the house, there is also a gated vehicle access at the front with an airlock gating system (to stop your pets from escaping) and a large fenced garden area which also gives access to the two large garages attached to the left hand side of the house. Each of these garages can house 3-4 vehicles and one of them even has an inspection pit and additional private courtyard. Beyond these, a private walled garden gives access to the pool and BBQ area.
The current owners have renovated the property to a fantastic standard, retaining as many traditional features as possible, and adding new double glazing throughout.
The main entrance opens into a small entrance hall/lobby, which leads to a large room with a wood stove. From here double doors lead to the cozy yet spacious living room with yet another wood burner. On the left is the staircase leading to the first floor and on the right is the huge kitchen that has been recently refurbished. From the kitchen a door leads to what could be a separate accommodation, but at the moment it is used as a large dining room with doors out to the covered al fresco dining area, and a large bathroom with a separate shower. Back in the entrance and to the right is a hall that leads to two spacious guest rooms. To the left of the entrance is a huge pantry and hallway leading to a bathroom and to the first large garage currently used for storage and as a workshop.
The stairs to the first floor, with a quirky tree-trunk handrail, lead straight into a room to the right, which is currently used as a dressing room. This could easily be used as another bedroom. On the left are two large rooms that are still yet to be renovated, and could easily be transformed into two further double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. Straight ahead at the top of the stairs, is a spacious room currently used as an art room which leads on to the left, where a hallway gives access to a spacious shower room , a dressing room and a large master bedroom with beautiful views over the valley.
There is mains water and the electricity is connected, along with a well that belongs to the property.
