This heritage building stands on a large plot of an estimated 520m2, with its own large private courtyard, the living space in the property is over 3 levels and at a very generous estimated 360m2. A garden stands to the side of the house and is one of the only green spaces in the central square of the village.
Entrance to the property is through a large featured side gate, stepping into a high walled spacious courtyard, which is suprisingly quiet and sheltered from the adjacent road noise. The lower level of the building is the home for two large apothiki (storage) areas , which would make ideal taverna or kafenion spaces , should the restoration be of a commercial nature or family entertainment, living areas if residential. There are also a number of small utility rooms on the ground floor, many of the original features remaining in the structure.
The two upper levels are accessed by a wrap around stone staircase, each level arranged in a similar layout. 4 bedrooms, 1 kitchen area, 1 bathroom and a lounge area. The 1st floor is liveable today but does require modernisation, the upper floor requires completion and is open to changes in internal layout. Both living levels have wrap around balconies on 3 sides, all of a reasonable size and provide opportunities for outside eating and entertainment areas. Balconies to the front of the property having sea views, over the plateia and down the local Ritsa beach.
Being located in the centre of the village, all tavernas, shops and sevices are a short walk away and the beach itself is a short 2 minute walk from the property. Bordering the old town of the village and having the Independence Memorial, stood to the end of the garden area, and restoration of this property will need to be carefully thought through and will need to be in keeping with the architectural style of the village, which is protected under Archaelogical Rulings.
An open wood beamed roof area compliments the upper level and provides a great opporunity to possibly transform this space into an open plan living space. Many windows and french doorways are positioned down the three sides of the balconies and make each of the floors very open and bright.
Air Conditioning is provided on the 1st floor for heating and cooling. The property itself is dry and damp free, the roof being secure and weather proof.
