This house with a beautiful sea view, situated above the bay side of Vathi is for sale.
The property consists of two identical houses, of which only one is currently on the market. This property duo was inspired by Greek mythology and the tale behind the Dioskouri, the twins of Zeus and Queen of Sparta. The twins were revered amongst the ancient world for their kindness and generosity. In particular they were the patrons of travelers and sailors and were called upon to seek favourable wind patterns for their travels. All of which seems fitting for Ithaca, as it’s not only steeped in ancient history but also known for its great sailors and ships men.
The houses were built in 1998 and are slightly set back along the top road along the bay, providing idyllic views and a quieter, more peaceful setting. The house being sold is essentially a multi level house consisting of three floors.
The lower level of this house, which boasts its own private garden has lemon and olive trees, cacti and lush terrace with peaks of the bay through the trees. This level is essentially a studio flat comprising of a large open plan kitchen, living and sleeping area with a seperate bathroom. This level also has an outside storeroom and additional room currently used as a laundry which one can convert to a second bathroom if needed, as it is fitted with all necessary plumbing. The total square meters of this storeroom is estimated 12m2.
Leading up to the first floor via the external staircase is the larger one bedroom apartment. One enters into the open plan kitchen, dining and living area with a guest bathroom. The living room opens out to a spacious balcony overlooking the bay of Vathi. The beautiful bougainvillea brings a burst of colour to the already spectacular views. On this level there is one bathroom next to the kitchen.
Heading upstairs to the second floor is where one will find a seating area, bedroom and bathroom. There is another bay facing balcony on this level as well a smaller side balcony off from the bedroom on the road side. The entire house ( all floors ) are fitted with wooden shutters and doors, fully air conditioned and is naturally lit with a lovely sea breeze sweeping through the house. The property also has its own water cistern and has the access to town water.
Currently this property is a popular rental throughout the summer months and is rented out as two separate apartments. One could choose to keep this formula purely for investment purposes or one could redesign the internal layout with an internal staircase connecting all three levels to create a potential 3 to 4 bedroom house.
Furthermore one can build an additional 99,32m2 on this property.
This is a fantastic property for the Vathi area – one can use it for investment or personal purposes. It offers those sought-after views, convenience of being close to the town and water’s edge with the pleasure of a quieter neighbourhood.
