Description

5 bedroom, 3 bathroom, OFF GRID sustainable lifestyle, Canadian log house on a 7,000m2 plot with Title deeds for the land in Xylofagou – XYL138

This one of a kind log home is a delight to behold. Located in a remote area of the Cyprus countryside yet just 3km between the villages of Xylofagou and Avgorou. If you are looking for the dream lifestyle of sustainable, self-sufficient living then this is the property for you.

With a photovoltaic system and backup generator to supply electricity, a self-contained sewage system which recycles 95% of water and supplies irrigation, this really is off grid living. The property is built on a plot of 7,148 m2 which includes a large and productive vegetable garden, an adjoining, spacious covered outdoor potting tent, there really is everything you could need to live the dream of farming your own land. The outside space also includes a huge 150m2 concrete area ideal for outdoor activities or as a great base to keep pets or livestock. There are some outbuildings and covered parking/garage/store rooms with plentiful parking for guests.

The house and adjoined apartment were built in 2006, a Canadian, precision-made home from Eastern white pine with a shingle roof. The extremely robust laminated walls boast a thickness of 6’x 8′ with many similar homes having withstood forest fires, becoming only charred on the outside with the house intact inside. Wooden homes are extremely well insulated and energy efficient. The life expectancy of a log home is much longer than a standard concrete build with examples in North America, Europe and Russia that are nearly one thousand years old.

The main house entrance offers a large covered porch area, facing north, a beautiful place to sit and read a book. The front door leads into a hallway with a study off to the left and then into the living room with breathtakingly beautiful 5.5m high ceiling. The living area has patio door access which leads out to the south aspect of the house. The cosy living room also offers a gorgeous feature wall, partially stone clad between the natural wood panelling with a log burning stove, a welcome piece of furniture during the shorter winter months. From the living area you can access the separate kitchen, which would benefit from an update to your needs, however the space is a great size, ideal for busy family life with plenty of space for a dining table to seat 6 or 8.

There is a huge master bedroom at ground floor level which has provisions for a spacious ensuite bathroom. There are two additional, large, bedrooms and a family bathroom all on ground level. The loft space has been thoughtfully converted into a very usable and spacious 4th Dorma bedroom and there is even an additional office or hobby room in this loft space.

In addition to the main house with 4 bedrooms this exciting property has the potential to generate income from an adjoined and equally beautiful one-bedroom apartment. With its own separate entrance and access through the main house, if needed. A self-contained apartment consisting of living area, bathroom, bedroom, kitchen and utility room. A great rental investment or ideal for larger families with teenage children or elderly relatives.

This property is offered for sale unfurnished, a superb blank canvas. To live the dream of self-sufficiency, having no monthly utility bills and growing your own vegetables while living in such a beautiful rural location this home must excite the taste buds of many curious buyers. For more information on the build or details of the property please contact our offices. Viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate this unique property and its beautiful location.

ABOUT THE FAMAGUSTA REGION

Whether you are planning to visit the Famagusta region of the Republic of Cyprus for the first time or you are already in love with the area, there is something here for everyone.

The area is not known as the ‘Jewel of the Eastern Mediterranean’ for nothing! From the stunning cliffs of Cavo Greko (the most Easterly point of Europe) to quaint inland villages, to the 44 (yes 44!) white sandy Blue Flag beaches, the area holds something for every palette. We have beautiful nature trails, water sports galore, amazing fresh cuisine, nightlife, one of the top waterparks in Europe, fishing harbours, a world class Marina and the list goes on and on! You are never far from anywhere in Famagusta, a maximum 15 minute drive to the nearest beach from even the most inland villages.

Thousands of expats of all nationalities have made Cyprus their home over the years due to the warm local welcome, fantastic climate and host of things to do. The bustling cities of Limassol, Larnaca and Nicosia are just over an hour away but here you can enjoy a more relaxed pace of life. Crime rates are amongst the lowest in Europe, English and Russian are widely spoken and there is always time for a chat, a coffee or a glass of wine in the sunshine. We look forward to introducing you to hidden gems of the area on your next visit.
