This historic property is a rare gem which we are delighted to welcome on to the real estate market.
Located in Ano Syros, its entrance is widely thought to date back to the late 12th, early 13th century, constructed as a fortress to protect inhabitants of the village against pirate attack.
Perched on top of Ano Syros, directly underneath the Monastery of Saint George, its elevated position affords stunning sea views of neighboring islands. On clear days you can see far across the Aegean to Ikaria and Samos.
Traditional Cycladic houses were typically built one on top of the other but this property is unique, inviting and secluded, assuring privacy for its residents. Adjoining the Old Monastery of the Jesuits, the multi-level terraces invite you to sit a while and relax, to be inspired by the feeling of harmony that will embrace you, as you slowly unwind.
The interiors of this beautiful home exude traditional character, warmth and charm. The stone walls and stone arch in the living room take you back to a time gone by whilst at the same time all of today's modern comforts slip discreetly into place.
A surprisingly spacious property with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms this is somewhere that is large enough for families and cosy enough to enjoy alone. Perhaps with just a good book and the beauty of the surroundings for company.
The village of Ano Syros is one of the best preserved traditional villages in the Aegean today. It has an enchanting appeal with its maze of whitewashed narrow streets which are a joy to wander through and catch glimpses of people going about their day. Delight at the wonderful aromas that fill the air as the locals prepare their daily meal, often before the sun has even risen in the sky.
There are small tavernas, ouzeria , cafes and shops aplenty. Effortless dining with traditional home cooked food. Food simply prepared from age-old recipes.
Living here is to go back to a time when life was more simple. Less complicated than the lives many of us lead today.
This home will bring a sense of appreciation for a natural, slower pace of life.
