What you should know about this detached house

Amenities and special features of this detached house

Presenting you a unique property in the heart of Exarcheia, one of the few remaining houses sample of the urban architecture of the neoclassical era of the 1870s. The building has a great history throughout the years, since one of the greatest Greek poets lived a big part of his life in this house, inspiring him to produce the majority of his work.

The original building expands on 3 levels, however the building has been exposed to many damages as well as a big fire in the past so it is in need of total reconstruction. It is listed from the Ministry of Culture as a preserved historical and architectural monument of modern times, so it cannot be demolished, only preserved with its original character.

The unique characteristic of the house is its wonderful and spacious courtyard on the inside, which is rare to find in such buildings. There is already a permit approved by the Ministry of Culture, for the architectural redesign of the place, adding some extensions to the existing surface of the building as well as an approval in order to proceed with the restoration as soon as possible by the new owner.

The plot is 340sqm and the approved designs consist of:
Ground floor: 113sqm
1st floor: 161sqm
Mezzanine: 36sqm
2nd floor: 132sqm plus 11sqm balcony
3rd floor: 75sqm plus 16sqm terrace

It could be transformed into a luxurious residence or a small boutique hotel, due to its central location and its history.
