Double doors at the east end of the living room open to a partically covered terrace with stunning views of Hydra harbour. The flooring is much sought-after red tiles (circa 100 years old) and the ceiling is of beaded board painted grey. In addition to the fireplace there are two low energy storage heaters.

The kitchen is simply fitted with locally made wooden base and wall units. The window is north facing and there is a second entrance door from the street into the kitchen.

The upper floor is accessed via wooden stairs on the back wall. The whole floor is an open plan bedroom with a shower room next to the door out to the upper terrace, which is above the kitchen on the ground floor. The flooring upstairs is painted wide wooden planks and as with downstairs the ceiling is beaded wood painted grey. The low sills to all of the 6 windows ensure that you can not only look at the sea from bed but also makes the room wonderfully light and airy. Again there is electric night-storage units for heat during the winter and air-conditioning to cool the room in summer. As with all traditional houses, the thick walls include cupboards.

The second bedroom is separate from the main house on the lower ground floor. It is accessed from the garden and has its own terrace. Currently, it is furnished as a twin room but there is more than enough room for a queen size double bed with space all round if necessary.

The ensuite shower room has been partially carved out of the mountainside. A small door from the bathroom opens into an 'apothiki' (large storage space with a small window) which is a useful place to keep out of doors furniture over the winter.

Lower ground floor guest bedroom terrace.

Below the terrace of the second bedroom, there is a large freshwater cisterna. Traditionally the water collected would be used to supply the house, however, with the innovation of the island's excellent desalination plant which supplies water throughout the year, the cisterna has become obsolete and this space could easily be converted into a third bedroom (planning permission required).


In addition to 4 areas of terracing on different levels, there is a small but well-stocked garden area. You'll find a lemon tree, pomegranate tree, oleander shrubs, a grapevine and of course some well-established hibiscus trees. There are plenty of hose taps and bulkhead lighting outside. Right next to the main garden street door, there is a door in the wall of the property, directly below the kitchen, which opens into a very dry 'apothiki' (storage area) which is so free of damp that the owner currently uses it to store winter items such as duvets and blankets! If you continue up, passing the main garden entrance to the property, you will reach the set of steps to the 'backdoor' of the house which opens directly into the kitchen which is useful for receiving deliveries of shopping.
