Hydra Homes - Beautiful homes for sale on the Greek island of Hydra

'Beautiful Homes for sale
  on the Greek island of
    Hydra...'

* Price Reduced * One of the few Archontika available for sale on Hydra Island. 'Archontiko' is Greek for mansion, and the term refers to the grand cut-stone houses that were built by the sea captains in the nineteenth century. This is a beautiful building with original square stone architecture throughout - mostly undisturbed. The layout on the ground floor is typical, with a central hallway leading off to rooms in all directions, giving something of a maze-like feel. There are eight large rooms in total and most are being used as bedrooms and living areas. There is also an old style kitchen with a store room leading off. Under the kitchen floor is a cistern for collecting and storing rain water, and we are told this is functional. The ceilings are constructed in the traditional style, with narrow branches laid over the beams, and are in very good condition. The high ceilings, arched windows, some still with the delicate Hydriot design around them, wooden floors and large spacious rooms are typical of the original Archontika, and this one has been in the same family for 200 years. External steps paved with red stone lead to the first floor where a large terrace offers views across the sea and as far as the Peloponnese. There are another 4 large rooms on the upper level, also in the traditional style. The only room that has been modernised is the bathroom. Outside the main entrance of the house is the old furnace where cooking was usually done. There is of course an outside bathroom too. In front of the house is an ample plot where a garden can be made. Overall the house is in good condition but in certain places some renovation and construction will need to be done. The present owners still use it today on various occasions when they are on the island.
