Traditional stone house for sale in Gavalochori, Apokoronas. The house has a total size of ​​about 245sqm and is built on a plot with an area of ​​867sqm. The property consists of two buildings between which there is a large paved courtyard. The vaulted entrance of the house with the wooden gate and the impressive stone arches is a trademark of the early 1900’s architecture.

Spaces - Layout

The main house consists of two floors. On the ground floor there is the kitchen, the living room, the dining room and the bathroom. The wooden staircase leads to the upper floor where there are two spacious bedrooms. The second volume has a separate entrance both from the street and inside from the yard. The first part includes the entrance hall and an open plan kitchen-dining area. Then there is a second room with a separate entrance that is used as a warehouse.

Inner Courtyard

The interior courtyard filled with trees and greenery creates a tranquil and peaceful atmosphere. Moreover the courtyard helps with the heating and cooling of the house by increasing passive solar heating in the winter and stimulating passive cooling and natural ventilation in the summer. In the center of the yard there is a large arbor that creates shade in most of the yard. In the area in front of the main house there is a pergola with tiles while a few meters further there is the traditional wood oven and the barbecue, both built of stone.

Plot – Right to built

On the east side of the plot, behind the house and to the right, there is a large area that is suitable for the addition of a swimming pool. Alternatively it could be used to extend the house, as the plot has a building right for an additional 155sqm.

The house also has features:

Renovation - Investment Character
