A charming cottage situated in the hills of Episkopi in Hydra for sale on a plot of 231m².
For those who love nature and simple living, this cottage is a gem. Episkopi is approximately an hour and a half walk from Hydra town. For those who prefer a more manageable route can either take a boat to the port of Palamidas and walk only 50 minutes or choose to ride a horse up into the mountains.
When coming to the village of Episkopi there are quite a few houses grouped together and land planted with olive groves and other crops of season. Many locals have small houses for a getaway from the main town or for the use when hunting season is in during the autumn time.
This mountain cottage is set just across the valley from all the other houses, giving it total privacy.
The house is L- shaped and has 3 large rooms. There is an old styled kitchen, a living room and bedroom. The floors have the original tiles and the walls are thick made of traditional stone. There is a large veranda surrounding all of the outside of the house allowing spectacular views towards the sea and across the valley.
It has an outside bathroom which has been modernised for convenience over the last 10 years.
Electricity is powered by solar which has been installed discreetly but necessary for every day. Water is stored in a tank above the bathroom. A wood burning stove has been installed for heat during the colder months. Living is much more basic and delivery of necessities can be done by mule or by a friendly neighbour.
The views are magnificent and from the house there is a pathway that you can walk down to reach the beach of St. Nikolas and take a swim.
Definitely a house for those who like peace, away from it all and who are a little more adventurous.
