SKE0221 House for sale
103.66 m² - Skala Eressos, Lesvos Island 81105
So, if ‘city’ living is your thing or you’re interested in buying to let this has business/holiday home/rental opportunity written all over it. The beach is literally a 1 minute walk away (I kid you not) and all the fabulous shops, cafes, bars, tavernas, bakeries etc. are right on your doorstep.
The house requires some attention but it’s all pretty superficial stuff. It’s a solid stone built with a decent roof. You may wish to move the outside bathroom indoors and develop the lovely, stone outbuilding into a guest room, study or therapy/treatment room.
A magnificent double door with glass above opens into a large, well-lit hallway. it’s quite a grand entrance. There’s a good amount of under- stairs storage.
Kitchen. Traditional sink, in-built cupboards, wooden ceiling and original fireplace with mantle ensure this room has heaps of character, it’s lovely. A large window looks out onto the courtyard/garden area.
Two further rooms downstairs are both currently being used as storage. One of these could be partitioned and used as a bathroom still leaving space for possibly a fourth bedroom. One of the rooms could be utilised as a lovely day/living room.
Wide wooden staircase leads to a magnificent landing area. Chunky, oversized floorboards and traditional wooden doors give an almost opulent feel to the area. It’s certainly big enough to have an office space, or place a daybed here. I imagine a writer, artist or musician would really enjoy this house.
Bedrooms. There are 3 bedrooms in total on this floor. All have wooden floorboards, doors and ceilings. Large windows with wooden surrounds and deep sills give views to the pretty little oleander strewn backstreets of Skala.
Garden: You don’t need to be an expert to see the potential here. It’s a private space with a good sized stone building housing the old bathroom. Large double gates lead into what can most certainly become an enchanting oasis. The building can be renovated and utilised as a guest room, study, treatment room or storage.
There’s already a pergola in place, it requires covering; I think a paved area here would be lovely, your outdoor dining/entertaining space then plant a garden of lush fruit trees, herbs for the kitchen and fragrant jasmine and honeysuckle for those evening scents. There’s a handy outdoor tap which could also be turned into a shower plus there’s already an inbuilt BBQ. A garden this size and this private in Skala is truly a rare and special thing.
