In the beautiful island of hydra we offer two pieces of property for sale; a 202sqm building on a 513 sqm plot and a 623sqm land plot.
The property consists of ground level building of 202 sq.m. with brick fenced yard on a land plot of 513sq.m. There are 130 sq.m of not developed space, on which there may be built at least another 55sq.m, possibly as an independent residence behind the yard, at elevated ground with view at sea, direct entrance from the road and its own separate yard.
The property currently hosts a live-music wine bar & lounge. Its privileged position provides high commercial value, and ideal position for commercial use, or even for use as a very premium villa / house after some interior modifications. The building was first built around 1860 traditionally with heavy local stone and a beautiful ceramic roof. It has been very recently fully renovated; the roof is entirely new and the stonework is practically rebuilt. It is very spacious and has a high ceiling, that could allow for a loft.
The yard is surrounded by a brick and stone fence, it has stone floor and has different height levels, which provide a magnificent sea view from every spot. It is a rectangle construction facing the road with 19sqm width plus 14sqm width of yard, providing a total of 34sqm face to the main seaside road.
Both properties are located in the western part of the country of Hydra on the hillside just above the bay-beach of Avlaki at about 600-700 meters to the south of the main harbor of Hydra and the little harbor of Kamini lies to the south of the plot at about 600 meters. The main harbour can accept yachts and both can harbour speed boats.
The surrounding area is sparsely populated and quiet, close to historic mansions and stone-built stone villas that follow the traditional architecture of the island. The ground is rocky and stone removed from the site can be used as a building material, as is usually done for the stonebuilt houses of the island.
The view to the sea is amazing. To the northwest it has view to Peloponnese, to the west it has view to the little islands of Vlychos and island Dokos. One can enjoy the sunset over the sea to the west. To the northeast it has view to a rocky hill with windmills and pine trees.
There are steps leading down to Avlaki pebble beach directly below. Avlaki beach is a designated swimming area very clean waters. No boats are allowed in this bay and it is quiet and regarded as one of the nicest beaches on the island.
