Property description

The Space

The apartment building, designed by Belgian architects was commissioned in the 1930’s by an industrialist. It is one of the city’s few remaining authentic art deco style buildings. It was built in the area of Kypseli, where the Athenian ‘crème de la crème’ rich and famous resided between the 1930’s until 1980’s, such as Maria Callas and many shipowners. Within a short distance from the Acropolis and the historic center of Athens, the apartment overlooks the renowned café-filled, pedestrian zone of Fokionos Negri and close to the famous fountain/sculpture “The Bather” by Halepas. In the late 1980’s it was bought and renovated by an international banker (and earlier Greek-resistance hero) and his wife artist and collector. After many decades of neglect, the eccentric couple, took on the 360sqm apartment for renovation. Staying true to its original style, they filled it with their collections and transformed it into a unique living environment again.
The apartment is filled with antiquities, Byzantine and post revolution items. Its ceilings are high and rooms are large. It still has the original paint on the walls and is very atmospheric. Imagine sitting among the portraits of Lord Byron, Maria Callas, Shelly, Angellos Sikelianos and Isadora Duncan. Or wandering past Anatolian iron vases, swords from the 1830 revolution and oriental handwoven rugs. Imagine a place without air condition, telephones, microwaves. Just quietness, intertwined with a saxophone coming through the window overlooking the pedestrian path.

Fokionos Negri is 5 minutes taxi ride from the city center of Athens (Parliament Square). It is an old-aristocratic neighborhood, with many beautiful buildings. The apartment is located opposite a fountain, and the whole street is a tree-lined pedestrian area filled with restaurants and coffee shops. The home is located near a main Boulevard of Athens named 'Patission', from where you can hop into a taxi to take you to the Acropolis and the historical center in 10 minutes. The National Archaeological museum is within walking distance. The nearest beach at 'Faliron', which also has a prestigious yacht marina, is about 20 minutes away by taxi.
Also, walking distance from the apartment, are regular buses leaving for Sounion and Rafina port
