An unusual and very quaint house that the owners have enjoyed for the last 17 years is ready to have new ownership. This would make an ideal long season holiday residence and equally can provide good summer rental income given its location and solitude, yet has very easy access to the two main towns of the island. The approximate 100sq metre property is set in just under 4,000 sq metres of grounds.
The outside is very Alonissos, with a commanding elevated position surrounded by woodland and countryside enjoying views, peace and tranquillity.
The large balcony provides plenty of space to entertain, or relax in either sunshine or shade, depending on the time of day. Below the balcony you will find a large storage area with power and light to provide you with a workshop, studio or just plenty of storage space with its metal up and over doors. The level grounds provide ample seating areas together with two hammocks and wooden decking used as an exercise or yoga platform. You can also enjoy a little bit of the forest, that makes up part of the grounds. An outside shower area completes this unique property.
The property is in need of some attention, in particular the wooden shutters, but the structure appears to be sound.
