Building plot of 1102 m2, nicely positioned in the quiet and peaceful rural area of Kroustas, south-west of Agios Nikolaos, Crete.
From its elavated position 500 meters above sea level, the plot enjoys unobstructed panoramic views of the sea (Mirabello Bay), the surrounding hills and mountains as well as breathtaking views of the sunrises.
It has the pre-approval for a building license for a house of 139 m2 plus basement. Enough space would be left to make a swimming pool, terraces, pergolas, garden, parking space, etc.
It has direct road access.
Electricity lines are about 550 meters away. However, due to the frequent sun exposure of this region, it is possible to build a house that is self-powered by solar energy and cheap satellite internet provider services are available.
Only about a 3-minute drive away from the village of Kroustas where several taverns, cafes and a small shop for basic needs can be found.
The larger village of Kritsa which offers more amenities is about a 10-minute drive from the plot.
About a 20-minute drive from the nearest sandy beaches and from the town of Agios Nikolaos that offers all amenities of a modern tourist town.
The international airport of Heraklion is about an hour's drive away.
Agios Nikolaos is the capital of the county Lasithi and is located at the Mirabello Bay, north-east Crete, only 40 mins away from the international airport of Heraklion.
Geographically the town is well protected from strong winds allowing sea sports and swimming nearly all year round.
Although Agios Nikolaos has a population of less than 20,000 it has several banks, supermarkets, shops of every kind, doctors, a modern hospital of high standard, public swimming pool and tennis courts, yacht marina, harbour, cinema, theatre, gyms, a 9-hole golf course, schools ranging from nurseries to 6-level high school and generally all the amenities you would expect to find in a modern European town.
The microclimate is one of the best in Greece and the moderate temperatures rarely exceed 30c in summer or fall below 15c in wintertime. This wonderful dry climate together with the natural beauty of the area has attracted most of the high class hotels of Greece to operate here.
