MV Properties project management services have been busy with the initial stages of renovations to a house that was sold in Lefki, on the west coast of the island.
The new owners envision a modern, clean and fresh aesthetic to their coastal home. The colours will be neutral with tones of grey offering a sophisticated look to both the interior and exterior of the house.
Firstly our team cleared the garden in order to navigate around to see where is best suitable for the swimming pool (phase two ) as well as to get a better scope of the landscape of the garden.
Secondly, our team proceeded to start on the interior of the house. The kitchen, bathroom and living room were stripped from the old floor and wall tiles. New tiles for both interior and exterior have been ordered and will be placed accordingly once the electrical and plumbing has been completed.
The electrical and plumbing is in progress at the moment and is being completed by GTS Electrical and Galatis Plumbing. Along with the interior makeover, the house will receive new wooden shutters, internal doors and front door.

We are pleased to say that this renovation project is coming along as planned and is on schedule. All electrical and plumbing has been completed and the floor tiles have been laid and the bathroom construction has been completed, The outside balcony has been plastered and a glass panel has been inserted in the wall between living area and indoor passage providing more natural light into the living area.
Prior to the tiling the floor has to be cemented and levelled out throughout the house and once that was done and dry the tiles were laid. The bathroom has been completed to a clean and crisp smooth cement finish. Fittings for the bathroom are in process of being ordered and once arrive will be fitted for total completion.

More work has been completed to this exciting renovation project. New guttering has been installed around the house, and all the external electrical work has been completed. The front patio has been tiled and plastering is complete. The kitchen has received the initial stages of its makeover with bespoke smooth cement fitted units. All appliances for the kitchen and bathroom has been ordered and started to arrive.

The garden has been cleared and trees have been trimmed back in order to get a better idea of where the swimming pool position will be and for landscaping purposes.
Renovation Update September 2021
The internal spaces of this house in lefki is now complete. The doors and windows have been refurbished, and a new front door installed, with beautiful merandi wood. New shutters have also been installed. Both have been painted in the chosen colour of our clients. A traditional blue colour, which will combine with the new outside colour (completed in phase 2). The internal walls have been painted in a clean white, with new light fittings both inside and outside the house, which will be creating a clean and new look for their home.
The bathroom is also now complete with smooth cement finish, and glass for the shower. A new window and new electrical and plumbing installation.
The kitchen has been chosen in a smooth cement cream finish, with complimenting wooden cupboards in a smooth cement finish aswell, everything neatly installed to size. It is looking smart and new, very practical, and has created a space where many meals will be prepared next summer. The tile work is also complete, and the painting.
Our painter has done a fantastic job, and has really created a new full make-over for this house. The aluminum previously, green coloured are now painted in a beautiful greek blue. The walls are white, and this house is becoming more of a home for our clients. Watch this space for more updates over the winter months.
As we complete more work, we will update pictures of this project.
The garden and outside area will also receive a makeover along with the swimming pool as part as Phase two of the project.
Project Update 2022
This year we had the privilege of renovating the outside area and installing a brand new swimming pool. Excavation was done on the top level which was incredibly challenging however our team contractors worked together every step of the way to achieve the outcome. After the excavation, panelling was built on a cement base which would form the beginnings of a swimming pool. The swimming pool is 8mx3,5m and once the structure was created, steps were built inside the pool and then the pool was finished with a blue liner.
Around the pool, the ground was all levelled and then concrete was poured and the entire area around was finished in a light, grey, modern, outdoor tile. The pool was especially positioned in such a way to enjoy the late afternoons with sunsets over fiskardo, kefalonia.
Furthermore the stairs leading down to the middle level were also newly tiled and a gorgeous smooth cement round table was built in this outdoor space. Along with the table, the whole area was also levelled, a concrete slab laid and the same outdoor grey tiles finished on top to follow through with the same flooring around the pool. The contrast of the freshly painted white walls and modern grey tiles create for a trendy, sleek look. This complements the traditional greek touch of the quaint blue gate and grapevine and the pergola which will still be built over the outside area. We have really enjoyed this project because of its transformation. It has been such a rewarding experience.
