The Mandres property comprises 3,900 m² located at the top edge of the small traditional village of Mesochori (200 m walking distance to the center). Within the "mandres” — the hand-stacked stone walls bordering the property since 1900s — the house was built to enjoy sunshine and unobstructed views of the sea all day.
The land is fertile and home to native flora, including some wild olive trees and productive olive trees as well. The Mandres property is accessible via public road and walking path from Mesochori village.
The two-storey 260 m² house was built from 2002-2004. The house strategically faces south to enjoy sun all day and the neighboring hill diminishes the south wind to a breeze. The main interior living space is comprised of the middle floor (164 m²) and the upper floor (96 m²). The lower floor (111 m²) accommodates the garage, heating systems, open storage space and it is accessible via garage door and via stairs to the middle floor.
The middle floor features an open-space floor plan with outdoor patio access. It has two spacious living areas, an open fireplace, a full kitchen, and a bedroom - office.
The upper floor is half finished and according the plans of the building permission it features a master bedroom with a wardrobe room and bathroom en suite. There are two additional bedrooms, and a bathroom. All three bedrooms have private balconies facing different, fantastic views.
Double-paned glass windows allow natural light into all rooms of the house on all floors, and traditional wooden window shutters keep light out. The house has a dual-powered central heating system (wood-burning furnace and oil) on the lower floor.
The property (excluding 860 m² of land) is within city plans, and therefore is supplied with water and electricity access. Your home within the Mandres awaits your arrival.
