Sotheby's International Realty - Andros
We are proud to bring to the market an idyllic and historic property in the mountains of Andros. This property is a fairytale getaway and has recently been restored to the highest level of luxury living. Stone and wood, traditional building materials from the island, ensure the villa remains in harmony with its natural surroundings, whilst contemporary fixtures and fittings guarantee a comfortable living experience.
The property benefits from direct lift access from the garage, leading residents directly to the kitchen area and dining room. Oak floors, arched windows and traditional kitchen furniture creates a warm feeling and make you feel right at home, whilst the modern sound system and underfloor heating add a luxurious touch.
Upstairs, the spacious master bedroom boasts private access to the garden and has a lovely en-suite bathroom with Jacuzzi, all with elegant teak panelling.
On the lower floor there is a home-office, auxiliary laundry room and additional storage spaces, as well as two large bedrooms with en-suites and private balconies with garden views.
The jewel in this property’s crown is the fantastic garden, which is dominated by a large BBQ - perfect for entertaining all summer long. The estate also features an impressive dovecote, a reminder of the island’s more traditional past.
A guest-house with one bedroom, en-suite and fully-equipped kitchenette would be perfect as staff or service quarters, and bring the total additional areas up to 96 sq.m. In addition, the estate is home to two derelict buildings and one warehouse which have potential to be restored into separate houses - the ideal creative investment project!
The villa is close to the famous Menites Springs of the Menites, where water runs from marble fountains surrounded by ancient sycamore and walnut trees. It is rumoured that the name of the village is drawn from the nymph followers of Dionysos, or comes from the latin word "amoenitas", meaning a pleasant place. Whichever it is, it is one of the most beautiful, green villages on Andros and located very close to the main town of Chora.
