At 30 minutes drive you can reach the southernmost little village of Kokinogia, with its famous necromancy of the ancient Greeks.

SIZE & DESCRIPTION OF HOUSE:



The house is a two- storey, authentic, 150m2 Mani tower, which was built more than 150 years ago.

The tower has been renovated with full respect to every detail of the original building, and it is a representative sample of the distinctive architecture of the area.

The stone walls are 75 cm thick, and this offers significant insulation for heat and cold all year round.

a living-room
a separate kitchen/dining room,
a bedroom with a lovely stone fireplace, and
a bathroom with bathtub and a Jacuzzi shower cabin.
All rooms exit to a covered, arched, approx. 40m2 veranda


An internal staircase leads to the first floor comprising a large master bedroom.



There is a solar-energy hot-water boiler (which works also with electricity for the very few days without sun).



The house is heated via the fire-place, a very efficient wood-burner and 2 electrical radiators in two of the rooms.


SIZE AND DESCRIPTION OF PLOT:


The house stands on a 3.500m2 land all fenced with stone walls.

There is also another piece of land of 500m2 nearby, separated, which belongs to the property.

Immediately around the house there is a large courtyard with crazy paving of approx. 350 m2 as well as a garden.

There is a big cistern of 45-50 cubic metres, and an outbuilding of 20 m2 at the rear of the house.

The olive trees of the property yield approx. 150 kilos of pure olive oil each year.
