100P – Shepherd’s croft with sweeping sea view – Ortholithos | € 190.000

A unique opportunity to own this newly renovated traditional Shepherd’s Croft: a remarkable property with truly panoramic sea views. Enjoy sweeping sea views to the south from the dappled shade of a reed pergola, whilst from the west terrace enjoy the spectacular sunsets and stargazing overlooking the Ionian Sea towards Porto-Kagio in the Peloponnese beyond.

The Croft perched on a mountainside enjoys the luxury of utter privacy and isolation immersed in nature with no evidence of neighbours or human encroachment for 360 degrees around, other than a dirt road winding its way down to the coast below.
The renovated Croft offers 50m2 accommodation and nestles on a plot of 4862,52m2.
Although isolated the Croft is only 10 km from the bustling capital of Potamos and is approached via the village of Gerakari along 3 km of unspoilt, passable forest roads.

The Croft is an environmentally friendly space, powered exclusively by solar energy off an independent photovoltaic renewable installation. The installation further offers the facility for fitting a 9BTU air conditioner for the bedroom and there’s plumbing for a washing machine in a utility store-room.
Hot water via a solar water heater and water to the property from a natural *groundwater well.
There is good WiFi connection making the Retreat a viable work/chill holiday or longer stay option.

The accommodation is offered fully furnished and comprises of: a main living space with two ended built corner sofa (for sitting or lounging), dining or work table and chairs, kitchen with undercounter fridge/freezer, two-burner gas hob and a woodburning stove for winter months. There is a separate bedroom with cupboard, built bed-base, mattress and a separate bathroom with shower. All rooms offer magnificent sea-views.
