THE WHITE HOUSE, ALSANCAK
A light, bright, airy Cypriot stone house built for the Mediterranean environment, with metre thick walls that keep it cool in summer and warm in the winter. Renovated and very recently remodelled to provide a comfortable and highly individual home, with four double bedrooms (two ensuite); family bathroom, sitting room, hallway and generously sized kitchen diner.
The entire plot is slightly under 1 donum (1 donum = 1,388 m2) , situated in a peaceful cul de sac, surrounded by similarly large traditional houses, orchards and gardens, so ensuring privacy, peace and quiet. The village with its restaurants, shops and cafés is approximately ten minutes’ walk away. A stroll in the foothills is approximately the same distance and the sea a ten minute drive away at most. An ideal opportunity to own a totally unique residence or, maybe, run a B&B.
Room measurements are to be found in the photos provided. The title deeds are in the owners' names and all taxes have been paid.

When the owners bought the house it had been neglected for many years. The garden have therefore been created from scratch. The space has been painstakingly designed, built and planted to provide a truly lovely property. Stepping out of the back door you will find yourself in a large and totally private courtyard shaded by a very productive satsuma tree. The ideal spot for that cooling drink as the barbecue sizzles. The pool is to your right with a raised seating area adjacent overhung by a sweet almond and surrounded by a garden filled with flowers and shrubs. The main garden, to the left of your view, is gravelled with a small, paved arbour and a multitude of trees and shrubs that provide shade and colour year round. There is also a small grassed orchard that has olives, mulberries, lemons, limes, plums, nectarine, peach and banana as well as herbs beds. All the plants are managed organically. No insecticides or harmful chemical sprays have ever been used in the garden.
A separate annexe to the side of the courtyard provides:
SUMMER KITCHEN -
