215,000€ buys a self-contained plot of land with two houses on a rough Greek mountainside in eastern Mani overlooking the bay of Kotronas. The land measures around 2 hectares/stremata and sustains 24 old established olive trees on the rocky terrain, supplying the home with good organic olive oil. Here is a natural enclave: a paradise for bird watchers, from hawks to hoopoes, carpets of wild flowers, from widow irises and lillies to lobelia - outside the dry summer months- wild asparagus, plus visits by buzzards, wild boar, the occasional snake, martens, even an occasional jackal.
Main house: large living room with fireplace,wood floor & ceiling,plus raised platform for sleeping/lounging; adjoining balcony & superb view over the bay. Connecting door to large kitchen,tiled floor,large double ceramic sink,small fireplace,all in traditional style. Door to kitchen balcony overlooking the bay, & to shower room.
Above: A traditional Mani tower provides the main double bedroom where the dramatic dawn greets you each morning. Escape hatch down into the lounge,& up to the roof in case of attack. Tiled flooring, domed ceiling, bright and airy.
Separate cottage: 1 up,1 down,with tiled floor & new fireplace on ground floor & wood floor upstairs - interior needs cosmetic finishing plus a better staircase; the building is currently used for hobby/storage. Small balcony attached. Adjacent rough space for second bathroom/toilet.
Large separate workshop,stone floor,wood bench,electricity.
Huge water cistern supplies the home with all water.
2,000 sq.m of mountainside with 21 fine old olive trees,plus a further 5 established wild olives, & other types.
The present owner has lived here for 27 years, in this peaceful setting & with the exclusive privacy normally enjoyed only by millionaires, close to nature, waking up to birdsong with the spectacular dawn. This is a traditional house, restored from bare ruin, (see 2 photos), partly by the owner, not manicured to be pretty, set in the most magnificent location.
Note: the road does not reach the property yet; this is the owner's choice. Living on this wild, Greek mountainside, it's natural, it's rough, but living here is sensational!
