KARPAZ COAST – Pre-74 private plot in excess of 2 donum! A completely unique opportunity – 222m2 single-storey traditional-style 3-double bed residence with 194m2 roof terrace, panoramic sea views, 5 minutes’ drive from fabulous Kaplica Beach, 20 minutes from the Karpaz Gate Marina, with huge potential for expansion.
If you are seeking complete privacy with fabulous views, extensive grounds in a rural setting yet close to a beach and restaurants, then this unusual villa with massive potential for expansion could be for you. This property offers unparalleled views and privacy – being surrounded by forestry land which cannot be built on. The villa sits alone in a conservation forest area surrounded by ancient pine and olive trees.
The current owner has recently invested in considerable upgrading and refurbishment, including a refurbished roof, full damp proofing, brand new parquet flooring and new spiral staircase to the fabulous roof terrace. The covered area is 222m2 excluding the wrap around balcony and the roof terrace.
The traditional style property has attractive hardwood shutters to all windows and matching brown iron railings along the ground floor and roof terraces. There is an 18m2 double garage with door directly into the property.
The villa is approached through a secure gate to the large 2 donum grounds, with natural Karpaz stone boundary wall – making this ideal for animal/horse lovers. The wrap around balcony with its handmade wooden balustrades enjoys uninterrupted views of the famous horse shoe Kaplica bay directly opposite. The old white village of Kaplica with its basilica and mosque is viewed to the right and behind the home one can view the battlements of the famous picturesque hillside crusader castle Kantara, once the Mediterranean seat of Richard the Lionheart, a 10 minute panoramic mountain drive from the house and a treasured landmark in N Cyprus.
There are Mediterranean shrubs and trees in the grounds including a fig tree, Cypress tree, olive tree and bougainvillaea. There are mature olive trees listed in the original land deeds, as well as pomegranate trees, large fig trees bearing hugely abundant fruit, citrus trees, stunning bougainvillea bushes of various colours, hibiscus, jasmines and plumeria bushes, in addition to the wild scented thyme and oregano growing naturally on the ground.
The garage is located to the west side of the property with entrance to the property directly from the garage as well as separate front door.
The traditional-style wooden double front door opens into a wide tiled hallway with attractive tiled central courtyard feature immediately ahead through arched French door. The courtyard is enclosed with glass doors on all sides, affording huge natural light to the centre of the house – and with brand new spiral staircase rising to the huge 200m2 roof terrace above.
All three bedrooms are a generous double size, all with wooden floors, and are all located to the north of the property. They all enjoy French windows with panoramic sea views and all access a huge shared terrace which runs along the whole of the front of the property. The master bedroom with a lovely four-poster bed is immediate to the left of the entrance. Passing to the left of the inner courtyard, with all three bedrooms to the left, the spacious living area is found on the east side of the property also enjoying French window access to the same wrap-around tiled balcony.
The living area, which requires light cosmetic upgrading, enjoys an open fireplace, making this ideal for all-year use, plus its own door into the glass-walled courtyard. There are two external French doors – one north facing to the sea and a side angled French door to separate balcony affording lovely morning sun for al fresco breakfast dining as well as relaxation outside.
Beyond the seating area is the dining space – with open large window/breakfast bar dividing the living area from the spacious kitchen. The kitchen has ample traditional, stained wall and under-counter units and all silver appliances. The kitchen enjoys windows to the south and east.
Walking around the south side of the courtyard – there is a utility room which includes a washer/dryer as well as an additional large standing 8 drawer freezer, and built in storage cupboards.. Next to the utility room is the large family bathroom with a lovely corner bath. A generous sized storage/box room is next to the utility room which could even be a small child’s bedroom and has floor to ceiling fitted wardrobes. The guest toilet with shower is at the end of the corridor (next to the front door).
The spiral staircase in the central courtyard rises to the huge 200m2 panoramic roof terrace with coast and mountain views. Another storey could easily be built on this flat roof, enabling a future owner if desired to make a larger living area upstairs or increase the living area downstairs and place bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms on the top floor.
Below the property is a road leading down to the sought-after beach village of Kaplica with a good array of local eating places and a fabulous strip of sandy beach. There is a charming small Kaplica marina nearby too. Only 20 minutes’ drive away is the brand new Karpaz Gate Marina making this an ideal home for yachting enthusiasts. The nearest large towns are Kyrenia and Famagusta – both about 50 minutes’ drive. The 5-star tourist facilities of Bafra are only a 15-minute drive away (beaches, supermarkets, 5-star hotels).
