Exclusive Seafront Property in Skiathos
Originally belonging to a family from the UK who built it in the 60s, it remained neglected for many years and bore clear traces of the harsh winter and salty sea air. The current owner bought it not too long ago and woke it from its slumber. Much emphasis was placed on the preservation of the old stone walls and the atmosphere of the traditional building method, but also partition walls were removed and windows enlarged so that natural sunlight can reveal the beauty of the house. Storage rooms that were partly built into the ground are now romantic bedrooms with a very pleasant climate. The distance of only few steps to the main house produce that extra little privacy among the guests, which mainly families with teenagers or in-laws will appreciate.
The house has a beautiful garden with several places where you can read a book in the shade and serenity, but the highlight is the main terrace with the sea view and the shore right in front of you. The crystal clear water, the calm that is accompanied by the chirping of the cicadas and the lapping of the waves, the sea breeze, complemented by the scent of pine trees and wild herbs, and the sun make this house a very special place for a holiday full of relaxation and recovery.
Often a beautiful, wooden sailing yacht of the neighbor lies at anchor and gives the eye a pleasant focal point in front of the seemingly endless sea. The sea in front of you and the sight of the yacht might make you want to rent a boat yourself. Here the boat rental in Troulos can help. There is the possibility of anchoring a motorboat in front of the house and briefly docking it via a small platform on the property to load / unload provisions and allow passengers to embark. You can also go swimming here, especially if you just want to dive into the cool water to refresh yourself. Nothing is more wonderful than a quick dip in the sea first thing in the morning before sitting down at the breakfast table. Later, however, it is also worth going to the beautiful sandy beach which is almost exclusively used by the few neighbors in the area and is therefore never overcrowded. The golden sandy beach, framed in lush greenery, is less than a 5 minute walk from the house and the path is continuously overgrown, so even in the midday heat there is no strain at all.
The house consists of an open-plan living area with a deliberately simple and very appealing kitchen unit whose work surface also serves as a counter for the dining area, a stylish dining table and a cozy seating area. A hallway leads to the bedroom with sea views through large balcony doors. The bathroom is accessed via a kind of hallway with coat hooks on one side and two single beds on the other side. These can be used as seating or storage space, or for small children who are still too young to sleep in a separate building. At the end of this hallway or walk-in closet is the bathroom with a view of the sea through the bedroom. All along the front of the house there are windows and balcony doors that flood the space with sunlight, provide sea views and provide access to the terrace. There is a second, long dining table with a parasol and an extremely cozy lounge with a pergola under a thick old pine tree. Here the sea breeze meets the cool shade full of pine scent and creates a climate where you don't want to leave.
A staircase leads from there to the rear of the main building where there is a small but very romantic room. Unfortunately there is no toilet, but it is a very nice room for children. Another staircase leads from the lounge to a small, self-sufficient natural stone house with a particularly romantic bedroom. This room has a bathroom and in front of the entrance there is an outdoor shower and a small platform with two sun loungers that are still in the sun in the late afternoon. These stairs continue down to the sea.
