Kini house description

It is an amazing house, built with local stones, following the local architecture tradition. It has a breath taking view to the sea, where you can see four (4) Aegean islands and it is placed at a hill with a beautiful mountain behind the house.

The house has only one floor (ground floor). It has 190 sq.meters area, where there is a living room, a dinning room, a kitchen, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 small storerooms and a 20 sq.meter area (basement).

All bedrooms have double beds. The master bedroom is 30 sq.meters, and includes a library, an office, a walk-in dressing room and a WC.

The great advantage of the house is that you can live outdoors almost 365 days per year! Especially during summer, the front and rear veranda is your 'living room'. The silence, the smell and the view can be very inspiring for writers or very relaxing for hard working stressful people.
The owner of the house is an Architect, and he built the house with special care, choosing the best materials and workers. The Architect, believes that floors and walls are forming the physiognomy of this construction, so selected special materials and used unique methods.

The beach is 500 meters from the house and a lot of taverns (meat or fish) are on that beach (Kini). In Kini village you can find mini-markets, kiosk etc. and a lot of organized beach activities.
In front of the house there is a walking path that leads -through the mountain- to a Monastery (20 min. walking) or to the beautiful village of Episkopio (40 min) and even to Hermoupolis (the capital of Syros), were you can see the amazing houses of 19th century.

Just come once, and you will never want to leave!

                          We are both engineers and we designed and built this house in order to be cozy, functional and unique. We love the spot, the mountain behind the house, the sea in front and of course the amazing view. We live here all year, we still work in Syros and try to make our home more comfortable and sustainable. We are using solar energy to heat water all day. We recycle garbage, we use composter and we recycle all the waste water of the house in order to water the garden. During winter we also collect rain water. So, this is a unique, sustainable house built in respect to local architecture and tradition

                          Location, location, location! You can be isolated and at the same time near a small fishing village with very good taverns and fresh fish.
