The Captain’s house is a lovely grand mansion just a few steps away from the main port of Hydra.
Traditional and authentic in style throughout.
The main entrance from the street leads into a small garden/courtyard of fruit trees which is to the side of the building. A staircase of beautiful red stone lead up to the first floor and bares a large terrace partially covered for shade.
One entrance door on the first floor leads into an attractive hallway. Off this are various rooms, one being the main living room, 3 bedrooms and a study/library area. All the rooms have very high ceilings, arched windows, painted wooden flooring or old tiles and many original features.
The second entrance leads directly into the dining/kitchen area and to one side is a bathroom which has been updated over the years for modern day living.
There is a wooden staircase that leads to a top terrace and partial views of the port can be seen.
The ground floor can be accessed either by an internal wooden staircase or externally from the courtyard.
There is large room with stone floors and wooden beamed ceiling where barrels of wine were kept. Through a small doorway is an original kitchen with marble sink and below has a cistern of water. Continuing through are another two bedrooms, bathroom and dining room.
There is also a separate self contained bedroom and outside toilet.
The property has been well maintained over many years and is still lived in today by the family on various occasions.
The building does need some renovation work and a new owner would most likely want to change the layout and modernize throughout. A great opportunity for a large family home or as an investment.
