As the land falls within the town plan, it would be possible for the incoming buyer to apply for permission to build up to 50% of the plot meters, so potentially 134 m2 of living space (subject to application and approval).

Originally, the house had 2 floors and was the traditional L-Shape with a lower courtyard and upper terrace. Sadly once the roof collapsed the walls started to fall into the property. However, this means that there is a huge amount of reclaimable and recyclable material on site that will help to keep transport and building costs down.
Large ruin with plenty of building material to reclaim on this land for sale on Hydra Island. Currently two entrances to the property from the north facing boundary wall.
The following two photos were taken from the top boundry wall looking directly into the plot.


The plot is almost square shaped, detached with steps and paths to all boundaries. 


The following sequence of images were taken from the lower level of the plot.

Below the rubble there is a freshwater cisterna (traditional rainwater tank) which could be rebuilt and used to supplement the main town supply. Unusually for a ruin on a plot of building land, the utilities are already in place on the plot. Again this is another huge benefit when keeping the costs of rebuilding down.

The location is high although in terms of difficulty it is classed as a medium climb because in spite of the plot's location on the edge of the town boundary the route up is gentle with plenty of level parts. The easiest route includes 217 steps which are nicely spaced out.


It is reached from a number of directions but the easiest walk is to take the lane up from in the east corner of the port turning left in front of the Police Office behind the old bakery. From then on you zig-zag up short sets of steps interspersed with gently sloping level sections, winding your way around houses and two pretty little chapels.


An averagely fit person is able to reach the property from the Alpha Bank in 15 minutes.


The area is residential with a number of large well built houses some of which are lived in full-time by locals and others are holiday or weekend homes.

The View


The view from the property is enchanting and creatively inspiring.  The vista is 180 degrees and incorporates the mountains, the entire town and glimpses of the sea outside the picturesque Hydra Harbour. The colours, light and mood change throughout the seasons dictating the activity of the people at different times of the day and year. The landscape and structures are like a magnificent stage setting where the characters play out their daily scenes for your viewing entertainment. Even the weather plays it's part in creating the atmosphere.



Below there is the lush green colour of the playing field and the gem-like stands of evergreen pine trees which in the summer are very restful in the full brightness of the sun. On the opposite side of the valley you can watch the mules and horses trekking up the zig-zag to the Ag Fotini Monastery. You'll find the position of the setting sun as it swings through its seasonal arc will create glorious sunsets posing a challenge to artists and photographers to capture just the right moment as it appears to settle in the cradle of the hills either side of the Kamini to Vlychos Valley. The colours change too from emerald green dotted with vibrant spring colours that fade to shades of gold by the end of the summer before the first autumn rains reinvigorate the landscape which has it's second coming.



And the sounds of Hydra provide the unobtrusive background chorus for this theatre: The laughing of children on the way to school, the cheers of encouragement from the sports field, the regular chime of the church bells, the clonking of goat bells as they forage, the squawking of hens as they lay their eggs, the braying of mules that sound prehistoric as they call to each other, the siren calls of the boats as they pull in and out of the harbour - this cacophony of sound blends and rolls around the amphitheatre lifting it up the hill to gently remind you that you are sharing this wonderful glut for the senses with a vibrant and thriving community.
