this older heritage listed home is located in the heart of eressos next to the local school, park, pharmacy and shops. this house is easily accessible by car and parking is available right outside. the actual house, a solid asia minor tower, is a reflection of past grandeur.
a stone wall and an old heavy wrought iron gate guard the entrance to the property and the small garden. a few steps lead to the massive solid timber door and your first impression as you enter the building is one of light, airiness and height.
the whole house has many of its original features, high ceilings, wooden floors and lovely arched wooden windows that truly fill all corners of the building with light.
on the ground floor are 3 large rooms, a kitchen and a bathroom. exceptional feature are the wood detailing and the fine plaster and gold leaf iconostasio, a special niche in a wall for the veneration of family icons. a door leads outside to a small out building in need of renovation which can be converted into further accommodation or store room. the basement area, which is quite large and cool, is also accessible from outside and can be used as a store area.
a charming circular window casts sunshine over the timber stair case that leads to the rooms upstairs. the rooms on the second story are again large interconnected rooms with high ceilings and plaster motifs that can be used as bedrooms, living areas or library/office.
this is a wonderful large old home full of light with lovely views of the sea and surrounding countryside. with some special attention this has the potential to be restored to its past grandeur. it is also possible under a program offered by the greek government to convert this home into rooms for rent or a small hotel, a facility currently unavailable in eressos.
