This 3-bedroom house was built in 2006 and has the charm of an old Greek village style house. The whole house is situated on the ground floor.
The house was designed by the owners according to their wishes, together with an architect. On the one side of the house is the living room with open kitchen and on the other side is the master bedroom and the children’s/guest bedrooms, all connected by a small hallway. For privacy reasons, the master bedroom and the guest bedroom are separated by the bathroom.
The kitchen is an open-plan kitchen with a bar-like counter and is painted in a creme color. The kitchen counter top is in a wood color, which gives a nice contrast with the country style tiles on the wall. The shelves, the traditional plate rack and the classic display cabinet give the kitchen a great village style image.
The living room has a cozy traditional built sofa around the fireplace with lots of storage in the couches.
To create a traditional look, the owners decided to build a simple fireplace with nice soft curves. Very cozy in the evening on a colder day. Another nice detail of the house is the arched doorway to the hall.
All bedrooms and rooms get enough light through the windows. The master bedroom has a beautiful traditional built sofa bed which gives it a great feeling to sleep in, with a wink to the old times. The bed is a very comfortable king size bed of 2m x 2m and offers a spacious place for storage underneath.
The house has a large bathroom with a bath/shower and a toilet. A nice feature of the bathroom is the long counter with the cupboard underneath, which is partly closed and partly open, offering a decorative way of arranging your towels.
The wooden shutters give a more country style feeling and the house is painted white with blue windows in order to create that real Greek image. All around the house there is a terrace which is painted in a beautiful Greek pattern. In the front and in the back, there is a pergola. The one in the front has a beautiful pink bougainvillea and the one in back is covered by a vine. On the back side there is a fantastic walnut tree which gives really the Best shadow on a sunny day and which can accommodate a hammock. Of course, there is more than enough space for great barbeques.
In the garden there are 10 olive trees and every November when it is time to harvest them, you can experience the pleasure of collecting them and making your own virgin olive oil. Every year you can also make your own marmalade from your own fruits. Lemonade, orange juice, mandarin- and fig marmalade are just a few of the delicious products you can make from the fruits of the trees in the garden. Furthermore, there are peach trees, apricot trees, a pomegranate, a pear tree, apple trees, a prune tree and a real banana tree which gives fantastic small, but delicious bananas.
There are many nut trees as well, an almond tree and a walnut tree. And of course, not to forget, grapes! Different kind of grape trees in the back of the garden as well as in the pergola. Feel like a Greek God and just pick the grapes straight from the vine. Use the leaves to make nice dolmades and eat the grapes in a nice ‘moustalevria’, or drink the juice.
