Eastern Crete



Front line building plot with possibility of building further properties. The land has its own private roads and it extends down to the sea. It is located opposite a state protected park which includes a river (that plunges over a waterfall near sea level) with a plane forest and is a registered path (called "Rihtis gorge" or "Richtis gorge") which has become one of the most popular attractions in far eastern Crete (look it up!)



Total area of land: 130,790 sqm
Access to the property is through a newly upgraded and widened concrete road about 4.5km off the Heraklion - Sitia national road.
The main beach (which is public property) is around 1.3km from the property and is walk-able by anyone or a 2 min drive.
Also, there is an 135m waterfront that belongs to the property but work needs to be done for it to be safely accessible.
There is no part of this property that is characterised as "forest" or that is protected in any way.



A large part of the land is already cleared from the forestry department, further official de-characterisation is underway (to a total of at least 65,000sqm) even further de-characterisation is possible.
The land has over 200m road frontage plus it has its own private roads; practically this means that it is quite easy to divide it into plots if one wishes.
The area is constantly being improved with its value rising steadily over the past 5 years. This year they will partially convert the main road into an asphalt one and other improvements towards the development of Richtis gorge and beach, which the municipality of Sitia already promotes.
The plot includes 130 productive olive trees, 15 fruit-bearing trees and a vineyard.
Time to Heraklion airport: 1h35min
