Beautiful Unique Village House
Plus A Detached Studio House
A rare opportunity to purchase this wonderfully unique home in a traditional Mani village only 1.5 kms from the sea and the sandy beach of Agios Dimitrios and the picturesque fishing village of Agios Nikoloas. The village is also only 45 kilometres to Kalamata with its airport, hospital and city amenities.
The creativity, imagination and flair for design exhibited by the owner is reflected in every aspect of the house. It blends into its environment as if it had been part of the village for many years and indeed the house has been built on the site of the original stone house and maintains its traditional characteristics.
The village stands on the edge of a gorge which is a natural habitat for a wide variety of birds. The views from the house are absolutely breathtaking and one has a panoramic view of the gorge, the Taygetos mountains, the Messinian coastline and the western finger of the peninsular across the Messinian Bay.
The house consists of the ground floor which is 100 m2. and incorporates an open plan living room with a state of the art kitchen which includes a large cooking range with double oven, fridge, dishwasher, fitted units and ample work surfaces. The lounge area is spacious light and airy with windows all around which give beautiful panoramic views of the outside surroundings. There is also a wood burning stove for cosy winter evenings. Leading from the lounge there is an outside terrace with sofas that can be used as an outside sleeping area as well as an al fresco dining area which seats 8 people. On the ground floor there is a separate laundry room with a washing machine and tumble dryer and guest toilet. The first floor is 98 m2.and consists of a large open plan bedroom with king size bed, walk in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom. There are three sleeping areas which consist of a detached studio house with a separate kitchen and bathroom and a summer house on the terrace which has twin beds and a wash basin.
The terrace consists of several seating areas which include sunny and shady spots.
Steps led down into the terraced garden which is laid with flowering shrubs and overlooks the magnificent gorge with its lush greenery. This house needs to be seen to fully appreciate its uniqueness.
