The property sits in an idyllic spot, nestled in a small valley just between the villages of Prosilio and Tseria. Standing alone with no immediate neighbours, two traditional Mani stone houses face south down the valley, across to the Mediterranean sea at an elevation which gives lovely views of the coast and the surrounding hills. If you are looking for THE perfect example of Mani life, then you have found it.
Recently restored, the two houses provide a 140m2 of living space in a very large olive grove of 4,500m2. Fully enclosed with traditional stone walls, the beautifully landscaped and terraced gardens are home to 120 olive trees, a number of fruit trees and many varieties of herbs and fauna. The present Owners intended the property to be a place where one could find peace, privacy and be at one with nature and this really has been achieved with their design and restoration.
Sustainability has been a cornerstone of the restoration work and today power and hot water is provided by a modern solar system, made up of 8 panels, large battery storage and full power management system. This is supported by a back up generator. Should the new owners prefer a mains grid power supply, the municipal supply is within 300 mtrs of the houses. Large water storage and the collection of rain water ensure very adequate domestic and utility water for the garden and houses through a well designed water network.
Access to the property is justs 30 mtrs above a connecting village road, where parking is provided and is made via an old mountain footpath. No effort has been made to improve this access way, as it also compliments the goals of seclusion and privacy of the location. However planning permission is available should direct road access be wanted in the future.
Each house is equipped with a double bedroom, bathroom and kitchen area, the main house being on two levels with open lounge and wood burning fireplace. The lower level of the minor house is presently used for storage and workshop space but could be converted to provide an additional bedroom or studio guest room.
The present Owners are willing to facilitate the supply of mains power to the site and construction of direct road access if this was wanted prior to completion of sale. Costs and timescales are known for this. The property could also be offered fully furnished and is a negotiable offering.
