THE OLD BAKERY, Agios MartinosRef: 10582
This very interesting property was once the village bakery and the present owners have renovated it using great imagination and an unusual use of space.
In the shape of a long farmhouse, the main accommodation is over two floors, with the original bakery work room used as the kitchen and dining room. Furnished with old free standing cupboards and with the original flooring, the room is very welcoming and oozes character. There is space for a woodburner in both the kitchen and living area for winter heating.
Next to the kitchen, inside what was once the original wood oven, is the most original bathroom design we have ever seen! With a bath sunk into the old fire pit, and lots of old brick on the walls and ceilings, this must be the only one of its kind.
The living area is also on the ground floor; this is L-shaped and has a spiral staircase leading upstairs and a doorway leading to the front of the house. Again the flooring and ceiling are original features, and there is a wood burning stove to provide winter heating.
Upstairs are two double bedrooms facing the front and a single bedroom which overlooks the long narrow swimming pool which has been constructed on the upper level.
The roof terrace is 100 sq m, and here is the biggest surprise of all to this property - a long lap pool with superb views of the surrounding valley, sea and Albanian mountains ! The roof terrace is also accessed from exterior steps so that the guests in the holiday apartment can enjoy it.
Completely separate from the main house is a self contained holiday apartment. Simply but comfortably furnished, there is a living area with a kitchen, two double bedrooms and a modern shower room.
In the lower garden is a 3 story summer house with electricity, telephone for internet,eco shower which takes it's hot water from 100ft of high quality black piping on the roof. There is a workshop adjoining the apartment and w.c under the outside stairs.
With plenty of parking space and large garden for growing vegetables, this property is perfect for those seeking a year round home with the potential for some seasonal income.
