A carefully restored and eco-friendly three bedroom house at the heart of Karya
Karya (Karia) is a popular, thriving village in the mountainous centre of Lefkas. Around and close to its famous square shaded by plane trees are numerous bars, cafes, and shops. A good starting point for walks into the mountains, it is also well located for the beaches of both the East and West coasts.
This property is well situated only a minute from the square yet with open views to the front.
Entrance is through the front door into a very large open plan living / dining / kitchen area. Tiled floors and a new high timbered ceiling give a feeling of space. All the windows are double glazed with fly screens. Together with the thick natural stone walls this keeps the house warm during the winter, and fresh and breezy during the summer.
There is a fully fitted kitchen.
There is a small upstairs wc and washroom.
A wooden staircase leads down to three double bedrooms and a bathroom.
The master bedroom has a private en-suite shower / wc, and double doors open onto a railed patio.
Bedrooms 2 and 3 are spacious and have double glazed windows and stone walls to keep the cool during the summer. All three bedrooms have natural stone floors with under-floor central heating, for warmth during the winter.
There is a bathroom with bath and wc, also with under-floor central heating.
To the front of the house is a large stone paved patio, breezy and sheltered from the sun, with nice views. There is also a private paved parking area for one car, opening on to a public road.
Large solar panels provide hot water and central heating all year, with electric backup if necessary.
This beautifully restored, authentic stone built village house has made good use of natural materials, wood and stone, to provide an authentic atmosphere. The clever use of roof top solar panels will provide free hot water and central heating for many years.
