A traditional old “spitaki” for sale on Hydra Island, Greece.
This property is in an L shape design and is in need of some renovation/modernization. It sits quietly in a commanding position at the top of the hill from Kala Pigadia.
Off the main pathway, through a small courtyard, there is one entrance into the kitchen, typical and traditional in style of the olden days.
There is second entrance from the courtyard where there are three rooms, one being the bedroom.
The bathroom is outside, which of course would need altering and putting inside for modern convenience.
There is also a cistern on the property where fresh rain water is collected.
The spitaki sits on a plot of land 892m² giving panoramic views of the sea, port, across to the Peloponnese and much further. There is another old building further down on the property (which has completely collapsed now) and in years back was probably used to keep the animals. This could be turned into a guest room. Other ruins are also seen on the plot which could give scope to more building if wanted.
Obviously to restore and rebuild, an engineer/architect can advise and planning permission would need to be granted.
The walking distance from the port is approximately 15 minutes at a steady pace. The climb is quite steep but once there definitely worth the views!
With some investment, it can potentially make a wonderful holiday home.
