The ground floor is currently used as an entertainment and hobby space with three sets of patio doors to the garden and pool area.
To the fireplace end of the main ground floor living space. a door in the corner leads to a large double room that is currently used by the owner as a storage and work room. The rooms could very easily be refitted as a bedroom suite with plenty of space to configure a bed/sitting room, kitchenette and shower/bathroom as an independent master or guest suite with private access to the entrance terrace.
The three patio doors (each with flyscreen doors) open to decking and across an excellently maintained lawn to the swimming pool.
To the rear of the main house, on the opposite side of the entrance terrace, there is a 2 bedroom guest house. It comprises: a small living room with kitchenette, 2 bedrooms and shower room. The guest house is fitted with central heating radiators and air-conditioning.
The guest house is half of a rectangular building, with the 2nd half being used as a large workshop. The workshop could easily be adapted to create a 2nd guest house of the same size as the existing one.
The owner of the Galatas Estate is a superb gardener and also keeps birds and animals. Every inch of the garden within the grounds is fertelized and dug to ensure maximum cropping for fruit and vegetables. In addition the lawn is of drought resistant and hard wearing varieties of grass that have been maintained to ensure a deep carpet effect that is a delight to walk on.
Approach Road & Entrance
All the approach roads are maintained by the company who operate the wind turbines at the top of the mountains above Galatas. Please be assured that from this property you can neither see or hear them. But you do have the advantage of perfectly maintained approach roads. Even when the occassional van or lorry passes, the house is set back from the road sufficiently to make it very private and the high boundary wall muffles any passing noises. So you have all the benefits of a good road but none of the inconvenience.
Electric Gates & Drive
From the road you turn into a small lay-by to activate the electric gates. There is sufficient space for a car to park off road in the lay-by as well as another car entering. The drive up to the house is concrete with raised walls either side and built in lighting. Along the left side of the drive there are multiple terraces planting beds. One or even two of these could be converted to hard standing for car parking if you prefer not to have cars on the entrance terrace at the top of the drive.
At the top of the drive a paved and pergola-shaded area opens to the entrance terrace of the house. Currently this area is used for outside dining with a large semi-covered area to one corner with a built in traditional oven, brick built BBQ, plumbing & electricity for entertaining. There is also a large area laid to lawn that is currently used as an avairy for the owners peacocks.
Lighting & Automatic Watering
All areas of the cultivated areas, drive, patios and walkways are well light with external fittings built into walls or some free standing electric lights. All areas of cultivated land are fitted with automatic watering systems and there are many external taps and hoses.
