This stone built, 80 years old character bungalow with stunning views and full Title Deeds is located in Lysos in a very quiet location and has a very colourful history.
The property was a British Military Police Station in former times., and there is one room which was used as a prison for the soldiers. All rooms had iron bars and it had a weapon safe, which has now been reused as a book shelf. Rumour has it that a high ranked British soldier was shot down and killed in front of the house.
This is a studio bungalow. It is very generously sized with all rooms except the bathroom open plan. The well equipped kitchen is next to the dining area/lounge and an attractive archway leads directly to the bedroom. Windows on all sides having stunning views of the local countryside.
The bathroom which contains bath, sink, w.C and overhead shower is next to the bedroom and has a bath mounted on bricks which only adds to the character of the property.
Being stone built the bricks are of at least 20 cms in thickness, thus helping to keep the property cool in summer and retain much of the warmth during the winter months, especially as there is a traditional log fire in the lounge/bedroom area.
The property, which incidentally has beamed ceilings and shutters throughout also has the benefit of an attractive roof terrace which provides absolutely stunning views over the surrounding spectacular countryside and hills, as well as amazing sea views across Polis bay towards the Akamas Peninisular - what a place from which to watch the spectacular sunsets whilst enjoying a cooling drink at the end of the day.
There is also a raised verandah on two sides which means that the stunning views can be enjoyed from ground level as well.
The property is perfectly habitable, the current owners have been staying there, but would benefit from not only a little tlc but is also ideal for anyone looking to renovate a property. It stands on a large plot, with a stone outbuilding so there is plenty of room for scope and expansion of this character property.
Local amenities are within easy walking distance to the village of Lysos village centre and the local stone built Paradisos Hotel. Weekly shop can be carried out in the major supermarket in the traditional town of Polis, roughly 15 minutes drive from here.
The exciting upmarket marina at Latchi with its numerous tavernas, wide range of water sports, and crystal clear water can be reached within 20 minutes.
This really is the ideal property for someone with a fertile imagination who wants to take advantage of traditional Cypriot living while at the same time putting their own individual mark on a property.
