Property Gallery and Description
Amazing location right by the beach in Kaminaki. This 3 bedroom/3 bathroom property of 237sqm is one of the best old olive press conversions we have seen and has the rare distinction for a property of this type to be just a few steps from the beach with almost uninterrupted sea views.
STOP PRESS - PLEASE NOTE:
A new law has recently been passed in Greece which does not allow any future properties to be built this close to the sea. So, this is an opportunity to buy a seafront property which will not be repeated
The property has been lovingly and tastefully restored by its present owners. It is reached along a short pathway from the parking area of the village with stone steps leading down into a pretty paved courtyard which is screened from the neighbouring property by mature shrubs making this garden area very private and secluded.
The whole of the house is light and brightly decorated in neutral, pastel colours giving a real seaside atmosphere. Great care has been taken to ensure the building retains its character whilst offering a comfortable and contemporary home.
* An arched doorway leads into a stone-flagged terrace in front of the house - protected from the heat of the sun by a white painted beamed and tiled roof. This area is a perfect spot for outside dining whilst enjoying the unobstructed sea view just a few metres in front of you.
* The terrace leads into the living room and also to the kitchen - modern freestanding units yet with a very traditional atmosphere. Two little windows in the kitchen overlook the sea.
* The enormous sitting and dining room has the original archway of the old olive press and very high ceilings with old wood beams. The floor is wood and there are many original old stone features including part of the olive press itself which has been turned into a feature light. A large wood burning stove stands in the living room, providing plenty of heat for most of the house.
* At one end of the room a mezzanine has been constructed - a clever use of the space where the top is used as a study and office and underneath a WC/cloakroom and a large and very useful storage/utility room.
* The original kitchen of the house - to one side of the living area - has been converted into a modern bathroom, from which a wooden staircase leads up to a guest bedroom.
* At the other side of the living area stone steps lead down to another guest bedroom. Spacious and light, decorated in traditional Greek island style with a beautiful en suite shower room, this bedroom, in common with every room in the house, overlooks the sea.
* The master bedroom is reached by another couple of steps from the living room. It is a large and airy room with a wooden floor and another spectacular view of the sea. Its en suite bathroom is luxurious and spacious.
