Hidden in the heart of Kyrenia’s Old Town is this fabulous, historic home with its extensive private, mature gardens. Enter the property via the secluded, tree-lined front garden with 10 x 5 pool, gazebo and peaceful relaxation area. There are two entrances to the house: a front door leading immediately to the drawing room, or alternatively through the front porch into the bright, stylish kitchen.
The kitchen is decorated with white and blue traditional tiling plus matching wall and base units, with a sunny breakfast area. Passing through a stone archway, the south-facing rear of the house offers charming sunroom with huge stone archway & French window to the extensive rear fully enclosed gardens, unusually offering complete security and tranquillity for such a central location. There is a downstairs bathroom/utility room.
The drawing room and dining room, separated by a stone arch, offer a combined, generously proportioned 10m long reception area, with feature fireplace at the far end, front door to the north and fabulous Cypriot-style carved double wooden doors to the rear hall. The hall is accessed from both the drawing room and sunroom, with tiled staircase and wooden bannister rising to the 1st floor.
At the top of the stairs is a huge sunny, open plan landing/office area with day bed, part of which could be converted to a small 4th bedroom if required. A balcony from this area also contains a ladder to the flat roof offering potential for panoramic flat roof viewing terrace. All top floor high ceilings are lined with traditional Cypriot wooden beams and bamboo.
The 1st bedroom (north side) has balcony with view of the front garden, en suite shower room with high quality tiling and floor to ceiling fitted wardrobes. The charming smaller 2nd bedroom has wooden floor also with en suite shower room.
Beyond the study area is the ‘piece de resistance’: a generously proportioned master bedroom suite to the west end of the house with large en suite bathroom featuring high quality tiling with corner bath as well as shower. The wooden balcony leading from the bedroom offers panoramic south facing mountain views. The bedroom has good sized fitted wardrobes. Currently featuring a four poster bed, this bedroom exudes traditional charm and brings to life the historic nature of this former Medieval Han (Inn).
The long rear walled garden is a gardener’s delight, with established fruit, nut and fig trees, mature flower borders, many other established trees and shrubs. This area, with borders and large paved areas, offers total security and would also be ideal for a family with pets, children or grandchildren wishing to roam in safety. Joined to the house is a private shaded dining area with wooden pergola – with adjacent stone well-house, housing the private water supply currently providing ample water for all the garden’s irrigation needs.
