STYLE & LOCATION
An imposing and prominent house built in the style of a traditional Spetses mansion, featuring a unique blend of the latest technology in air conditioning, underfloor heating, and plumbing/drainage systems, combined with the use of old materials, thick walls and many traditional features.
The house is situated in the most sought after location high on the ridge, but only 80m from water's edge at the end of the Old Harbour. Three top-floor terraces give views of the Old Harbour, the sea at Aghia Marina and the mountains behind the town. Sun or shade can be found at any time of the day.
Due to the high demand for property in the Old Harbour, and the fact that very few of the existing properties come on the market, only small pieces of land in prime positions are available.
