Nestled behind the byzantine church in Proastio, a short walk from the main road, you will find this beautifully restored 19th Century Tower House standing proudly within the village of Proastio. Fully restored and maintaining many of the original architectural features, this modern family house really is a unique offering in the region.
Complete with sea views, lovely roof top terrace garden and private courtyard this really is a place you can escape to, a quiet, peaceful haven, yet still only a short drive to the coast and the more popular resorts of the Mani.
Standing on the coastal balcony, your views range from Kalamata in the west, down to the cape in the east across the rooftops of the village. Relaxing in the rooftop garden to the north, you gaze upon the Taygetos mountains and catch the sunrise every morning with your breakfast.
With two large bedrooms and two bathrooms, this Tower House is a very comfortable property. The lower bedroom sits on the ground floor, within the old kamara but has a very high ceiling and lots of light, all of the stonework visible internally and lovingly restored to bring a very stylish feel to the space. A small mezzanine in this room could accommodate more sleeping space if wanted. The upper bedroom, is situated on the next floor of the Tower and has a large double bed with plenty of storage and has again been designed to let in the light and the sea views.
A nice office space is also located on the ground floor and has its own private entrance from the courtyard, with bathroom. A stairway from this level takes you to a large open plan modern kitchen and dining area, very intelligently designed and again retaining some very nice architectural features throughout. Access from this level will also take you to the courtyard staircase.
On the upper level we have the main living area, taking full advantage of the Tower House height, taking you above the roof lines of the village and out to the panoramic views to the coast and mountains. With plenty of large windows, french doors out to the front balcony and roof garden this is a beautiful, bright and airy space with stunning views wherever you look, yet with a wood burner in the corner, cosy furniture, lots of wood furnishings and flooring this space retains a gorgeous comforting feel whilst relaxing here. Property is offered partly furnished.
Stepping outside from the main lounge area you enter the rooftop garden space and terrace, with dining area, pergola and some very well designed planted features, this really is a spot to spend those evenings entertaining guests, relaxing, stargazing or just being at one with the Mani... sitting above everything else, this space in the top of a Mani Tower is not easily found and does make this a unique offering in the region... don't let it 'escape'...
