Renovation project for sale in the traditional Cretan village of Kamara, just a short drive from the magnificent beaches of Ravdouha!
Built in 1961, this property belonged to the grandfather of the family and it used to be a "pandopoleio" meaning it was a shop selling almost anything.
In these times there were no shops in the villages selling specific items, but "pandopoleia" existed and provided more or less anything the village required.
The shop was shut down very suddenly and all items have remained untouched on the shelves.
The property comprises of two buildings: the main building which was the "pandopoleio" and a storage room across the road which is in desperate need of renovation.
The property is stone built so has very thick walls providing great insulation.
The interior is one big room of 66.13m2 and has a wooden wall with shelves separating it into two rooms. There are two entrances, one is east facing and one is south facing.
This building has another 173.87m2 of extra building allowance.
The storage space across the road is 37.87m2 with a corrugated iron plated roof.
This storage room has an extra 9.76m2 of building allowance.
The main building has access via the main village road. Steps lead up to the courtyard, part of which is covered. From here one can enjoy stunning views of the White Mountains and the surrounding countryside.
The storage room across the road doesn't have any exterior areas.
The traditional village of Kamara has an ideal location: is it just 5 minutes driving from the small but busy town of Kolymbari where one can find all types of amenities such as restaurants, shops, bank, doctors, bakeries, post office, beach and many more, all year round.
The stunning village of Ravdouha is 2km from Kamara and has magnificent West facing beaches with incredible sunsets!
The entrance/exit to the national road is just a couple of minutes drive away.
The even larger town of Kastelli is a 10 minute drive and provides all types of amenities, enough not to need to drive until Chania.
