ERE0079 House for sale
65 m² - Eressos, Lesvos Island 81105
Well, if you can look beyond the fact that it appears the last resident in this house may have been Miss Haversham, you’ll see, beyond the clutter and cobwebs, a solid, traditional Greek house with lots of scope and potential. It’s the usual two up, two down scenario. The private courtyard currently requires a machete to get through it but hidden beneath the unruly fig, cherry, orange and other trees is a really nice sized area…there’s even an outdoor oven hidden in the greenery.
It’s a great village location, just a couple of minutes walk to the village square and all of its amenities which are open all year round and less than 4km from the wonderfully vibrant beach resort of Skala Eressos. The photos which accompany this house are dark, the Virginia Creeper has been left to roam for far too long so opening the shutters is problematic, this issue is easily remedied.
KITCHEN. Miss Haversham or no, it’s actually got some lovely old features from the stone sink to the plethora of cupboards and units. Concrete flooring though, ripe for some lovely local stone or tiles. There will be, eventually, a lovely view onto the courtyard.
LIVING AREA. Requires airing out and painting but again, a great view onto the garden area, typical Greek house.
UPSTAIRS are two bedroom areas with wooden flooring. Windows aplenty will make both rooms feel very light. At the top of the staircase is an area perfect as a study or hobby space with some storage at the head of the staircase.
OUTSIDE: There is currently a building which houses a ‘bathroom’ with shower, WC and sink. It will require ripping out and a new bathroom suite installing. It has the potential for a great wet-room, it’s a good size.
The COURT area is totally overgrown, I needed to beat a path to the front door but it’s genuinely a great space. There are some wonderful fruit trees that require urgent attention as does the out of control Virginia Creeper but the result will be a magical and private courtyard. To the rear is a large, stone, outdoor oven. It will be the perfect spot for outdoor dining/living.
