ERE0124 Two houses for sale
197 m² - Eressos, Lesvos Island 81105
Yes, that’s right. Two gorgeous, traditional stone houses on one plot. Both renovated, both delightful. The two-bedroomed house, currently being used by the owner is far more traditional and rustic in style to the second, one-bedroomed house; this has a much more contemporary and modern vibe to it. It was renovated with a view to writers and artists having a wonderful space to retreat whilst enjoying the very tranquil and picturesque location. Both properties benefit from pretty courtyards. The second house enjoys panoramic views from an upper balcony. There’s a good business opportunity here too, the second house is being successfully rented out as a holiday let and is already seeing return visitors.
The village and all of its amenities including post office, chemist, shops, cafe and taverna is less than an 8 minute walk. The beautiful and thriving resort of Skala Eressos and its award winning beach is a mere 4km away. Solar water heating services both properties.
DOWNSTAIRS. Living room. Very traditional in style, there’s an authentic feel to the whole place and whilst fully renovated and modernized it maintains its cosy and rustic charm. Original built-in cupboards offer good storage. There’s an incredibly efficient ‘Godin’ wood-burning stove to ensure heat throughout the cooler months. Original stone floor. Wi-Fi.
DINING AREA. Situated conveniently between the living area and kitchen there are beautiful handmade bookshelves to one wall. A perfect spot for winter dining and entertaining. Stone floor. Wooden staircase leading to bedrooms.
KITCHEN. Polished cement worktops coupled with stone flooring gives a very pleasing effect. Window onto courtyard ensures a good supply of natural light nor will you not miss out on the conversation your guests are enjoying outside. The owner has exploited the space well with shelving and storage in every nook and cranny.
BATHROOM. Again the lovely stone flooring sits well with the polished cement. There’s a beautiful, ornate Turkish sink. It’s a large space and is used as a ‘wet room’. Shower, sink WC, all the essentials! The washing machine is housed here too. Shelving for storage.
BEDROOMS. Typical Eressian house with 2 bedrooms and an area dividing them which is large enough to house a study/hobby area. Both rooms are big enough to house a double bed. Traditional in-built cupboards. Lovely wooden floorboards and doors with brass latches keep that rustic feel going. Both rooms flooded with natural light.
OUTDOORS. Open the double gates leading to these properties and you’re in for a surprise. It’s an absolute joy and an utter treat for the senses. A covered outdoor dining area sits in the prettiest of courtyards. The garden is perfect for someone who loves their flora and fauna but doesn’t want to spend too much time gardening. The raised beds are brimming full of jasmines, roses, herbs, bougainvillea, and much much more. It’s an utter delight. Orange and olive trees offer dappled shade. There’s a large, stone, hand- crafted BBQ. Even the potting shed is quirky! On a more practical level there’s a good sized, dry apothiki (shed) for storage/working, it has an electricity supply. There’s a separate log store and dry store too. There is lighting and a taps too, all bases covered.
Parking available to the front of the property.
