Just one of those daysMon, 22nd Apr 2013
There are some days when estate agency is just another job, loads of paperwork, hours on the computer etc. and then there are other 'isn't this a great job' days. Earlier this week we had one of those, when we went out on a catch up day out to see properties new to us, and a property which has had quite a few changes recently.
We began at Tranquil View House not far from our office, and it turned out to be along one of those roads that you always knew existed, but never actually been on. As we wound up the hill we had no idea what to expect, and found a lovely light, airy house, with wonderful views over cypress and olive trees, right down to the sea.
After that we went north to Kentroma, to see Kentroma Cottage - a house which Susan and Sarah remembered from its 'before renovation days', and they were amazed at the transformation. The house is supremely pretty - just the way everyone expects a renovated cottage to look, with a spacious living room, nice kitchen on the entry floor, and two bedrooms, good size bathroom and study area downstairs. Add that to a traditional 'bodzo' style veranda, virtually an outside living room, with sea views, and you have the perfect village house.
We then drove up to The Hamlet in Santa where the owners have recently completed some extensive work (and some inspired landscaping). This is an unusual property, some houses have been completely renovated and are in pristine condition, while others remain in their unrenovated state - an ideal 'change of lifestyle' opportunity for someone wanting a comfortable home while they complete the remaining renovations.
Add to that blue skies and stunning scenery with acres of flowers - all in all an excellent and thoroughly enjoyable day's work.
