Manolates house description

Built in 1929 and restored over the last two years to its original grandeur, the home is one of the most outstanding properties on the island. It has three floors, each providing panoramic views of Samos/Vathi town and harbour and totals 180m² of living space, with an additional 60 m² roof top.
Located just metres from the central pedestrian shopping mall and the main town square, and a 20 short walk to Gaggou Beach the luxury home offers all of the convenience of town living from a secluded and quiet position.
The property comprises a formal and an informal living area, separate dining room and kitchen – all as originally configured but totally updated. There are three double bedrooms, and a study/fourth bedroom. There are two bathrooms (main with large shower) as well as a toilet area on the rooftop. All rooms have stunning views over the port, town or surrounding mountains and capture all the summer breezes, while the master bedroom has a private wrap around balcony.

Fully Renovated Traditional Home: The house is a traditional up-market house, nearly 100 years old. It could not be better located for anyone interested in staying in Samos/Vathi - close to everything but in a quiet secluded area.
It is made of local stone - the outer walls are 80cm thick and internal ceilings are 3.5 metres high. The renovation completed in 2008 included new plumbing, electrical re-wiring, replacement of light fittings, laying new floor coverings and installation of central heating and solar hot-water. There is a water pump that ensures good water pressure in every part of the house - including the large upstairs shower room.
The original wooden windows and shutters have been repaired and repainted and the front door replaced by a hand made replica of the original. The house has been re-painted inside and out in the traditional style of the house. Facing towards the harbour, the house is always cool and receives refreshing breezes in almost all weather conditions.

          • There are three good szied bedrooms in the house - two on the first level and one on the ground floor. All rooms have a queen size bed, cupboard and view over the harbour or town.

The two upstairs room share the main bathroom and the third bedroom has access to the second bathroom, on the ground floor. There is a double futon bed in the upstairs living room and another single futon in the fourth bedroom/study (on the first level). We can also provide a travel cot for smaller children.

The second bathroom is small but includes a toilet, shower and basin and is located on the ground floor. It is ideal for washing off after a day at the beach. The washing machine is also housed in this bathroom. There is a third toilet and handbasin off the utility room on the top floor of the house....moreless

          Other Amenities

              • The rooftop area of the house offers a panoramic view of Samos harbour and Samos/Vathi. It contains a dining table and chairs as well as a large comfortable lounge setting. There is a utility room off the rooftop which includes a fridge for drinks and snacks and a small dresser for plates, glasses etc. There is also a toilet and handbasin. There is a free public wireless during the summer that can usually be accessed from the rooftop. If this is not available, there is free wireless in all of the cafes on the main square (2 minutes walk from the house) and a couple of internet cafes close by. There is parking very close to the house but not immediately outside it as it is in a pedestrian only area. There are a few steps to the house - and the house itself is 3 stories so it would not suit anyone who has serious problems with stairs. The bus station is an easy walk. The house is very close to the main shopping mall plus all the waterfront cafes and tavernas....moreless

                          Car: Not Necessary

                          Easily accessible by plane and ferry – Samos sits just a kilometre or so off the coast of

                          Turkey, the mountains across the Mykali straits providing a spectacular backdrop to

                          most of the north eastern part of the island. The southern most of the North East

                          Aegean Islands and just north of the Dodecanese, Samos is a great base for island

                          hopping - although there is of course lots to do on the island itself.

                          It was the birthplace of the mathematician Pythagoras, as well as the site of the ancient Temple of Hera. The Efpalinos Tunnel – an engineering marvel from the time of Polykrates – deserves a look. The house is metres from the ArchaeologicalMuseum in Samos (outstanding Kouros), the main village square, the port and Gaggou and Roditses beaches and close to the bus station..

                          Although damaged by fire, Samos is still a green island. Mountain pine forests and vineyards provide a cool green retreat on hot summer days and some outstanding hiking for those with the energy.
