This larger-than-average traditional village house is arranged over two floors and has plenty of al fresco living and dining spaces
The house was built in the 1850s and sits in the centre of the popular village of Neochori opposite the village bakery. Neochori has a very traditional feel and benefits from a second bakery, a small supermarket and two popular cafe/bars serving simple Greek cuisine.
The house is approached through a bougainvillea-covered entrance into the walled courtyard, with terraced areas on three sides of the house offering a choice of sun or shade. The gardens are well maintained and stocked with flowering shrubs. A large lemon tree provides shade alongside the main courtyard and working outdoor oven. This oven may originally have provided all the bread for the villagers but today is the centre-piece for outdoor pizza parties.
To the left of the main entrance on the ground floor is a self-contained apartment with a small hallway, double bedroom to the back, a small room alongside set up as a kitchenette, and a shower room with toilet and washbasin.
Also underneath the main house are a series of spaces which are currently storage rooms but have the potential to be converted to other uses. One, with its traditional arched ceiling, is large enough to convert into another bedroom, office or studio.
Stone steps up to the main house lead first to a large covered main terrace with table and chairs overlooking the garden. This leads to a charming country-style kitchen and dining area with wooden units in an attractive olive colour.
A hallway takes you to the main bedroom which has fitted wardrobes and a window to the terrace. Beyond that the spacious living room has an alcove and a large window and glass door leading to another good sized terrace with sea views. This terrace also looks down on a separate garden area with a variety of fruit trees and shrubs.
From the terrace and next door to the living room is a wide hallway which could be converted into a third bedroom or study. Off the hallway is the shower room, and also a small utility/laundry room.
This house is fully connected to all services and ready to move into, but also offers a range of opportunities for those who enjoy a renovation project.
