Beautiful 2/3 bedroom villa with stunning gardens near the traditional village of Margarites, well-known for its pottery workshops. The villa lies amidst lush ecological gardens outside of the village, making it a quiet and ideal location for vacations or permanent living.

Located in picturesque green rolling hills, Margarites is well-known for its pottery. The tradition of pottery goes back many generations in this village and you will be able to find an elder to show you how the pots are hand-thrown. The village, which has some extraordinary architecture and lovely narrow winding streets, is well worth exploring.

This fantastic family villa is situated about 1 km from the village - within walking distance of the tavernas, kafenions and supermarket.

The property's extensive outside area has paved terraces and paths, beautiful multi-level terraces, rockeries and gardens with many seating areas, mature fruit trees, plants, and natural stone sculptures.

The villa itself has an open-plan living area on the main floor, a cosy fully-fitted kitchen with wooden floors, beamed ceilings and a comfortable sitting / dining area. The rooms are light and airy, the arched windows all have original locally-made iron frames. Wooden steps lead to the mezzanine and to the upper floor with two good-sized double bedrooms. The mezzanine is currently used as an office area by the owner, but could easily be used as a third bedroom.

Wooden steps lead to the spacious lower floor, which houses the large bathroom, a storeroom with access to the courtyard, an area with a fireplace and bread oven, and a large workshop used by the current owner to make his pottery. The workshop includes all the tools and the oven and has external access.

The entire house - except the lower floor - is laid out with light-coloured wooden floors and beamed ceilings. The minimalistic decoration, light colours and eye for detail make this property special and different from the average house.

The village of Margarites has a bakery, a supermarket and some very good tavernas. The bustling village of Perama, 4km away, offers a selection of shops, banks and a health centre.

The pretty coastal village of Panormo with its tiny port, sandy beaches and fish tavernas is 15km away.

An unusual property with an artistic touch including a pottery workshop, ideal for a craftsman looking for a peaceful and natural environment!!
