If you are looking for the wow factor in a property that has everything you are looking
for then you can look no further. This bungalow is situated in the picturesque area
of Karsiyaka with one of the most prominent uninterrupted views of the mountain I
have seen in a long time. The property is located at the end of a very quiet and
peaceful cul-de-sac surrounded by fields. It has been well maintained and is simply
ideal as a holiday home or permanent residence. An unusual factor of this property
is that it is not open plan and all rooms are separate allowing for better heating
and cooling of rooms and areas within the property. We highly recommend you add this
to your viewing list as a must see property.
On first entering this property through the ornate door you are welcomed into a large
entrance hall. The unusual aspect of this property is that there are doors that
lead off to all the other rooms, allowing the heating and cooling to be effective
in all rooms. Doors to the left lead off to the lounge and kitchen with a door leading
off to a hallway that leads off to all bedrooms.

The large roof terrace is accessible from the pool area via a very safe and secure
2 tiered wide staircase with wrought iron railings up the stairs and around the roof
terrace. There is a small storage area in the peak of the roof that has ample space
for storing tools, ladders; it also houses the roof tanks so that you don’t have
any unsightly water tanks spoiling your enjoyment of the views and spectacular sunsets
that can be seen from the roof. It gives 360 degree views of mountains, sea, fields
and trees; I could not find a direction that didn’t have something pleasing to look
Not only does the inside have a lot to offer but the outside gives you everything
you could want for the outside living that we all require when living or holidaying
in Cyprus. The property sits on just under a donum of land with a good space all
around the bungalow which offers many choices if you wanted sun or shade that you
could enjoy sitting in. A perimeter stone wall goes around the whole area with
a wooden fence added to the side that faces the road. Although the property is at
the end of a cul-de-sac it still gives you privacy around the pool area. The garden
is well maintained with a mixture of terracing and gravel that has been well designed
to allow for low maintenance and also the space for as many trees and plants as you
would like. A Private 8x4 overflow swimming pool and to the side of the property
has a wooden storage shed and access to the large underground water storage.
Everything about the outside of this property speaks volumes of what Cyprus living
is about, sun, shade, sea, mountains, swimming pool, palm trees and all the peace
and quiet you could want with all local amenities close at hand.
Resale and Rental Opportunity
This lovely bungalow in the beautiful village of Karsiyaka will only appreciate with
time as development increases in the city, many buyers would look to escape the hustle
of city living and retreat to a more secluded location while still having a foot
in town. In the coming years, estimated value of properties are only going to increase
as more and more people decide to settle in North Cyprus, and holiday rentals can
usually fetch an estimated £550 to £600 per week depending on proximity to amenities
and £450 to £500 monthly for long term rentals
Karsiyaka is located to the west of Kyrenia and consists of the village itself nestled
in the foothills of the Besparmak mountains, the “square” or Ataturk Park along the
coastal road and the coastal village itself.
The village offers stunning views of both the sea and of the second highest mountain
in the Besparmak mountain range. The village of Karsiyaka is famous for its historical
monastery that sits high up in the mountain. You will find life goes on in the village
pretty much the same as it did years ago, with the area still relatively undeveloped
and perfect for those wanting to get away from it all.
Karsiyaka has flat land along the coast that stretches 2 to 3 miles from the sea
and up to the steep Kyrenia mountain range. You will find two excellent restaurants
at Karsiyaka bay, a large beautiful bay mostly secluded. One of the most scenic drives
must be the drive from Karsiyaka to St. Hilarion Castle, once you pass the lovely
Kozan mountain retreat and restaurant where many outdoor activities are offered such
as horse riding, mountain biking, Jeep safaris and walking or simply take a picnic,
the weekly Kleftico is worth the journey alone!
