FOR SALE – A Greek idyll

On the island of Alonnisos

AN OPPORTUNITY TO PURCHASE A DELIGHTFUL, LUXURY HOME WITHIN A SUBSTANTIAL PLOT OF LAND, LOCATED ON THE BEAUTIFUL ISLAND OF ALONISSOS, CLOSE TO THE ISLAND OF SKIATHOS, GREECE. ALONISSOS HAS NOT BEEN OVERDEVELOPED AS A TOURIST DESTINATION AND RETAINS MUCH OF ITS IDENTITY

No expense has been spared in this stunning property. Working with a local Greek surveyor, the home was designed by Swansea architect Colin Webb as a dream home for his beloved wife, Hélène James – an aspiring writer. The house has stunning views, and is the perfect place for contemplation and inspiration. Its interior has been designed so that it reduces heat during summer days and captures the cool of the evening.

The size and orientation of the plot provides scope for a swimming pool, ample parking facilities and extensive garden area. An extension has already been started which would allow for an extension to the original building or the potential for a second building.

The property is divided into two sections; the upper, contains the house, the outbuildings, a shed and the partial build, and is fenced with a gate to the drive entrance. The lower section is open garden and olive groves.

Located a few miles from the main town of Patatiri, and the port of Alonissos, the property was built in 2004. The house comprises of:

Large living room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, balconies and veranda

Living room includes an open large fireplace, elaborate exposed beams, storage area

Kitchen comprises hard wood cabinets, gas/electric oven, hob, fridge, washing machine, dining area

Bedroom opens with double doors to the balcony, with stunning views on the islands of the Aegean sea

Bathroom contains toilet, shower, bidet, sink and designed as a wet room

Balconies and large veranda circle most of the property

This home comes fully furnished with hard wood and antique furnishings

Also includes:

Solar panels (a grid connection lies immediately next to property)
