Object ID: EKJ1820, Neochori, Messinia Mani
A house out of the ordinary! The house was built in the middle of the 1800 century and completely renovated 2007. High quality building materials and loving ongoing maintenance: a house that you can easily fall in love with. Wood, metal, glass and stone combine together the past and present: charming feel of a castle but with modern and bright open spaces. The house is sold including furniture and some of the customized lighting lamps imported from Egypt.
The roof of the house was raised an entire floor from the original level to build a bedroom (14,5 sqm) with a bathroom (1,9 sqm) and a terrace (9,8 sqm) that looks over the village and the Big Blue. Here you can view the unforgettable sunsets of the Mani from a hammock or a comfortable outdoor sofa.
Double glazed windows and doors, beautiful wooden floors and smart glass details in the floor make this room unique.
A smart staircase in wood and metal takes you down to the living room (20,4 sqm) with a well-kept wooden floor, a custom-made sofa, a work corner, two recliners and a warming stove. Very atmospheric lighting that matches the stone walls here. Cleverly placed spotlights and a wealth of light from the open walls towards the kitchen.
From here, a wooden and metal design staircase takes you down to the ground floor with tiled floors. Here you will find bedrooms with chalk-white rounded walls, (18,5 sqm), a stylish bathroom (5,2 sqm) with a designed window (double glazing) and a hall (4.5 sqm) with its own exit to a patio. Like the living room, the entire floor has well-thought-out light entry and spotlight lighting.
On the same level (accessible from the patio area) there is a storage room (5.06 sqm) with washing machine, large freezer and space for various garden tools. A stone staircase from this level takes you up to the paved patio (21,54 sqm) with room for plant cultivation and outdoor furniture. A stone staircase (original detail), metal and wood will lead you back to the heart of the house: the kitchen.
The kitchen's (17.2 sqm) one outside wall consists only of large windows (double glazing) that are protected from the outside by a pergola to deliver the shade during the sunniest and hottest days. In the kitchen (tiled floor) there is space for dining tables and chairs for up to 8 people. All kitchen cabinets, shelves and benches are dimensionally ordered and, even here, with smart and customized lighting.
The house is on a medieval street with both Greek and international homeowners. You can park your car 100 feet away in the narrow lane or in the public parking XNUMX metres/yards away.

About the area: Peloponnese and Stoupa
On the southern coast of the Peloponnese in Greece and about 60 minutes drive from the nearest airport in Kalamata (or about 3,5 hour drive from Athens International Airport) lies the beautiful and unspoiled village of Stoupa with warm, beautiful summers and mild winters.
With two lovely sandy golden beaches (as well as several smaller beaches), this once-sleepy village has become more and more popular as a tourist destination, yet has left the true Greece. There are about 20 tavernas and restaurants along the seafront where you can enjoy delicious local and traditional Greek dishes.
Stoupa is located in a fascinating area called Mani. This is the only part of Greece never conquered by intruders. The people, Maniots, built towerhouses (called Mani Towers) where they took shelter under the countless local feudes fought here. Some of these Mani Towers have been restored and can still be seen in the area.
The author Nikos Kazantzakis who wrote Zorba the Greek when he lived here and his statue can be seen looking over the Kalogria beach. For history lovers, Stoupa is ideally located to visit such fascinating sites as Olympia and Mystras. Or you can learn to dive, or just sit on the beach and steer on the Big Blue…
