2 bedroom/2 bathroom townhouse of 75sqm on 182sqm plot with a hexagonal pool in the rear courtyard, roof terrace and sea views. The property is located in the heart of Plaka and is just a few minutes’ walk from the tavernas and shops in the village.

Entrance is via a dedicated off parking area down a flight of tiled steps into the newly created courtyard.

A stone-built storage room forms the back of the courtyard and the whole area is now tiled making it a highly attractive outside dining/BBQ area of just for relaxing. The mature planting shelters the area from any breezes.

Ground floor comprises:

Kitchen which has recently been fitted with cream country-style floor & wall units is in a “U” shape and finished with stainless steel handles, trim, plinth and appliances. The work-top is pale beech-wood effect. Silver-grey splashback tiles tone beautifully with this colour-scheme. Appliances include built-in oven with ceramic hob, fridge/freezer and dishwasher.

The main lounge is now extended and fitted with fully opening concertina doors making this area true “inside/outside” living, utilising the rear courtyard as part of the living area.

The 8-sided pool provides a pretty focal point to the room and the addition of the built-in glass-fronted storage cupboard gives additional depth to the room.

For out of season use, the dining table is inside the doors, but during summer months the owners prefer al-fresco dining in one of the 2 courtyards.

Immediately to the right of the main room is an arched hallway which provides access to the ground floor shower room, the stairs to the first floor and to the ground floor bedroom.

The shower room is tiled in chocolate & cream with a hand-basin set into a cream and white vanity unit. The shower has a glazed cabinet and the toilet is classic white. The washing machine fits discreetly into an alcove.  An illuminated cabinet and chrome accessories complete the room. 

A good-sized ground floor double bedroom has a 4 door fitted wardrobe plus picture window looking out towards the rear courtyard. The current owners use the room for their family so commissioned a special bed to be made to suit their needs. In addition there is extra room for a baby’s cot. Without these the room could revert to a double room with dressing table or drawers.

First floor comprises:

The main bedroom which has a delicate-looking black metal 4 poster bed. A double door floor-to-ceiling wardrobe provides room for clothing and a second cupboard has been added for all the seasonal clothing needed for a family home. Double aspect picture windows offer views of the sea.

A door off the hallway opens into the 2nd shower room, again with hand-basin set into a vanity unit & mirror cabinet above. The same chocolate and cream colourway has been used with WC and shower tray in classic white. The shower has a glazed cabinet with chrome trim.

Patio doors lead out to a spacious roof terrace. Newly installed stainless steel railings with frosted glass panels provide privacy towards the road but the simple wall remains to take advantage of the sea views. The area is sufficiently spacious for table, chairs and sun beds


The rear garden has 90% tiled to accommodate the attractive pool.

The pool pump room is under the terrace.

The garden is fringed with mature ornamental trees & shrubs including orange, pomegranate, lemons, bougainvillea and plumbago, which makes the area very private
