A rare property to be found in the old town of Kardamyli, sitting above the gorge and below the historical towers of Vardia and Mourtzinos, this lovely house has its own private courtyard and is in a quiet, peaceful corner of the village. The property today has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and liveable space of just under 140m2, due the plot size however the property could be more than doubled in size if more bedrooms and living space was required.
The walled courtyard has two entrances, one from the small car parking area in the upper old town and one from the road in the gorge below, both being private footpaths into the property. The stone laid courtyard area has been provided with a covered space for outdoor entertainment and family meals, and also has a functioning outdoor bread/pizza oven as a nice feature. The only properties overlooking the house are to the rear, giving the house a lovely open feel with space around, not your typical boxed in village house. Views from the courtyard look up the gorge to the Taygetos mountains and the old towers of Kardamyli.
It is a low maintenance design garden, with planted pockets set in the stone walls of the courtyard. Jasmine covers the pergola, and fills the courtyard with its perfume. A lower garden area down to the gorge has not yet been developed but could be used to build more living space, or developed into more useable garden space and outdoor seating areas.
Two lounge areas both with wood burning fires are found on the ground floor, next to a kitchen and bathroom area. All living areas open up to the outdoor spaces via french windows. 2 double bedrooms are on the upper level, one being en-suite. The en-suite bedroom having the facility to have its own private entry door if guests are staying, or if the bedroom was to be rented.
Traditional features can be found throughout the property, open wood vaulted ceilings, stone arches and stairways. Inner walls finished in the traditional style found in many of the old Mani houses.
The location of this beautiful cottage is one of its greatest assets, being only a 5 minute walk down to the Ritsa Beach of Kardamyli and within walking distance to all of the shops, bars and tavernas of the village. Ideal if you do not drive , or for tourists, should you wish to rent out the property for some time of the year.
Properties of this nature, rarely come to market in the old town of Kardamyli and this is reflected in the valuation of the property today.
