A substantial five bedroom family villa with versatile accommodation arranged over three floors, ideal for everyday living and entertaining. This is an excellent base from which to visit Athens with a tram at the bottom of the road taking you straight into the heart of this ancient city. After a day’s sightseeing, either relax in the beautiful mature garden with a swim in the large pool, or walk down to the seafront and spend time on the beach, having a drink in one of the cafes overlooking the sea.
Built in circa 1924 by the current owner’s Grandfather who was mayor and benefactor of the area, this is one of the oldest houses in this smart residential quarter. The villa is located in Glyfada, the diplomatic and seaside suburb of Athens, fifty yards from the Glyfada Golf course “Constantine Karamanlis” and a minute’s walk from the sea front and the shopping area of town. Set in a large mature garden the house has a lift and provides approx. 340 sq.m. of accommodation.
A marble staircase leads to the first floor main entrance and a further one to a sheltered veranda surrounded by lemon trees.
The spacious entrance hallway, laid with antique stone tiles, leads to the main dining room which has a balcony and a second kitchen and pantry.
The large double reception room with high ornate plasterwork ceilings has French doors opening onto the veranda and an antique French fireplace in the library corner.
A wooden staircase or the panelled lift lead to the second floor where you will find the main bedroom with balcony, three further double bedrooms, two bathrooms and one shower room. All rooms have excellent storage and cupboard space.
The ground floor garden entrance leads to a day room with dining area, study with en-suite bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen leading onto the garden patio with seating and dining corner. There is a further bedroom with ensuite bathroom and a maid’s bedroom on this level.
The large, shady terrace overlooks the garden which has a large expanse of lawn landscaped with mature trees and flowerbeds and a good size swimming pool in one corner, with bar and BBQ area.
