Description

Set above the road which runs through the bustling village of Karoussades, this imposing property is a short walk from the village centre with its various kafeneions and old fashioned shops. In two parts, there is an old single storey olive press and a large four storey house divided by a level courtyard garden.

Both properties enjoy lovely views to the mountains and the sea along the north coast and towards Albania beyond.

Beginning with the olive press, this is in a fairly poor state of repair needing major work to restore it to its former glory. There is a lot of space, ready to be re-organised and re-designed, and the original press and machinery is still there to be incorporated into the design if desired. At the road side of the building is the old kitchen, complete with its fireplace and bread oven. The room is an unusual triangular shape, as the overall shape of the building has a curved wall.

Across the courtyard is the main house, on four levels and in a much better condition than the olive press.

Entering the ground floor from the courtyard there are three rooms in total and a bathroom. The kitchen has beautiful old fashioned floor tiles, and overlooks the courtyard. In the middle is another room also overlooking the courtyard leading to a "front" room which looks down onto the road and the lovely view in the distance.

Upstairs has the same arrangement of rooms, and then a further flight of stairs leads to a spacious attic, which only needs a slight increase in height to become another large living space.

On the lower floor, at road level, is a large room with an unusual cellar area at the back and a door leading out onto the road.

Difficult to price, so why not make an offer?
