Neoclassical house in pristine condition, a listed monument with spectacular views of the Parthenon located in the historic center of Athens. The neighbourhood is charming Thisseio, adjacent to Plaka, and the house is a mere 50 steps away from the Apostolou Pavlou/Dionysiou Areopagitou pedestrian street encircling the Acropolis.
Tastefully decorated, amply comfortable, totally functional are some words to describe this unique property. A wall dating back to the 4th c. BC was discovered during the renovation and, during the foundation reinforcements, a Roman mosaic was found. Owners had permission to keep both and display them.
Totally renovated in 2012, this property of a total of 504 m2, comprises 3 interconnected quarters with a beautiful courtyard in the middle and an elevator servicing all 4 levels.
The main quarter has a large living room with a separate dining area in the ground floor as well as a modern kitchen with breakfast area. There are 4 bedrooms (which are interconnected so they can become 1 immense bedroom or 2 large bedrooms) and 3 bathrooms on the first floor.
There is a separate guest quarter on the ground floor consisting of a bedroom, a kitchen, a bathroom and a living room. This area can also be used as a prolongation of the main quarter’s living room.
The basement has 2 bedrooms bathed in natural light, 1 bathroom, many storage areas, a pantry, a laundry area and, a proper wine cellar with temperature and humidity control.
The second floor has yet another guest apartment with a bedroom, bathroom and kitchenette. The study is also on this level and the whole top premises overlook the 60m2 terrace with panoramic views of the Acropolis. The second terrace of 55m2 enjoys even better views and one is surrounded by Mount Lycabettus, the Observatory, Mount Parnitha, and Mount Hymettus.
This luxurious house has 5 m tall ceilings decorated with 19th century frescoes, wooden parquet floors, and a fully grown garden in the courtyard. Whilst the property was renovated under the strictest rules of the Archeological service to keep its old charm, it enjoys modern features such as outside thermal insulation, VRV central airconditioning, floor heating, high security system, a cable Ethernet network and an enhanced capacity piping system.
A majestic house in an area of Athens surrounded by history and in full effervescence.
