The house was constructed about 250 years ago and completely refurbished and extended in 2004. It combines a modern internal living space and amenities whilst also preserving the original architecture maintaining the village atmosphere.
The main house opens into a spacious hallway with a large bathroom to set to the right and a kitchen to the left. Double doors open to a large open plan dining room/lounge with a traditional stone built fire place and views down to the sea.
Spiral stairs leads down to a basement area which opens out into the main garden. There are 3 bedrooms ( 2 large doubles) on the first floor, the master of which has an ensuite with bath.
Glazed patio doors off the master bedroom open onto an elevated terrace giving uninterrupted panoramic views of the mountains and olive groves to the sides and rear and the Ionian sea and Albania mountains to the front. The design and aspect of this extended area ensures morning sun through the patio doors and glorious sunsets into the sea at night.
The garden has a plunge cooling off pool and terrace.
Besides the main house which occupies about 380 sqm there are 4 other outbuildings for renovation. The property and outbuildings are all contained within the urbanisation area of the Village and so could be further developed into holiday apartments or integrated into the main house to provide a large villa.
The property retains most of the original features, tiled floors, beamed ceilings, fireplaces and exposed timber floorboards on the first floor. The house has oil fired central heating throughout and has been tastefully decorated
The property has a rainwater reclamation system below the house which provides the water necessary for the irrigation of the garden and pool.
The garden and paved driveway are accessed through a pair of iron gates and the garden has been landscaped using traditional stone pavings and studded with traditional vegetation including orange, lemon, fig, olive, vines, walnut Jasmium and olive which has been designed so that throughout the day there is a mix of shade and sun shine. There is a private parcel of land opposite the main gates attached to this property with parking for a further 4 cars if necessary.
The property sits at the head of the village of about 1000 sqm and is enclosed by traditional stone walls and wrought iron railings. The front elevation opens into the heart of the village via an afternoon sun drenched veranda.
Vasilika is conveniently located about 10 minutes from the town of Acharavi, and the villages of Kassiopi and Perithia. The village affords access up into the mountains to the rear including Pantokrator (the mountain top ancient monastery) and the world heritage site of Paleo Perithia,
This is a unique property offering traditionalism, village hospitality in a peaceful retreat with unrivalled views.
