Details

A unique custom-built eco-friendly stone villa with uninterrupted breathtaking views over Polis Chrysochous bay. Designed by Vangelis Mavronicolas, the villa, constructed in 2006, is situated 200m above sea level on a large 9129 square metres agricultural plot. NB - agricultural plots can no longer be used for residential homes, only small farm buildings.

While located in a quiet rural setting on the edge of Droushia village boundary, the property is conveniently only five minutes drive from either Polis or Latchi. Built both for family and business use, the owners initially used the property as a base for their new cycling and walking business Wheelie Cyprus, offering small group guided activity holidays with luxury accommodation. They then switched to using hotel accommodation for self-guided activity holidays and have since been using the property as a base for their cycle hire business together with more recently their new yoga business, mainly yoga classes and workshops, but with a view to adding summer houses and/or yurts for yoga retreats. The property has Full Title Deeds.

The Covid Pandemic has given the owners much time to reflect and, after 15 years of hard work building their businesses from scratch, they have decided to down-size in order to release funds to do more of the things they desire as they approach retirement. Their villa can be used simply as a spacious family home or prospective buyers may be interested in further developing the property as a business. The large plot size offers many options for adding yurt-style accommodation for bed and breakfast and/or for nature/yoga/activity retreats.

Built with off-grid solar-powered electricity (battery power storage) and generator back-up for occasional cloudy days in winter, the property offers 4/5 double bedrooms (one bedroom currently used as an office) and 4 bathrooms (3 ensuite, one shared between bedrooms 4 and 5/office). There is an open plan 50 square metre lounge/dining room/kitchen with a utility room set off the kitchen area with drop-ceiling insulation for warm and cosy winter evenings in front of the log burner fireplace. The property has oil-powered under-floor heating throughout; the boiler also provides heat for the bathroom towel rails and, on cloudy days, hot water rather than using the immersion heater which drains battery power at night. Energy bills are minimal as solar energy provides year-round electricity. Average annual expenses amount to just €1000 for heating oil, diesel for the generator if required and wood for the woodburner. NB - the nearest electricity supply is now only 200m away just off the main road (in 2006 it was 5km away) so prospective owners may want to attach to the grid to use both solar power and on-grid electricity when required instead of running a generator on cloudy days.
