Filippos is a small traditional village built in the foothills of the White Mountains in a pretty valley with vineyards and olive trees. It is a 5-minute drive from the larger village of Vrisses with all its amenities
This tastefully-renovated house has been completely refurbished in 2010 by its current owners and is located in the middle of the village. The original thick stone walls will keep the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The owners paid a lot of attention to the restoration and perfectly matched the traditional features with modern facilities.
This single storey U shaped home consists of 3 separate buildings, each with its own entrance. The lack of an actual living room is being fully compensated by a spacious covered terrace. Outdoor furniture and ample exterior sitting areas emphasize furthermore the summer character of this house.
The building to the right houses the fully equipped kitchen/dining area with a separating breakfast bar, stainless steel electrical appliances including a dishwasher, an air-conditioning unit and the original wooden beamed ceiling.
The building in the middle has 2 double bedrooms equipped with free standing closets and air conditioning, and a modern shower room in the middle.
The building on the left consists of the master bedroom with a spacious mezzanine which is used by the current owners as sitting area/office, a beige colored shower room, a walk in closet housing the washing machine and a small storage under the stairs.
All rooms have been carefully and tastefully renovated, keeping as much as possible original features like the wooden beamed ceilings, the walls and the windows, giving the house a clear traditional feel.
The private parking is big enough to comfortably park 2 cars - 4 steps lead to the entrance. The entire plot is covered with stamped concrete for easy maintenance and is surrounded by stone walls with built in lights and niches. A few fruit trees provide much wanted shade during the hot summer days. Stone steps lead to the roof terrace offering stunning mountain views. The total building allowance is 382m2 giving the future owners plenty of possibilities to extend if wanted.
During the renovation works they actually found an old water well located at the back end of the plot.
The concrete tiled swimming pool measures 9m x 4,5m, has a depth of 1m55 all over and provides plenty of space to install sun beds and outdoor furniture.
The graphic village has some old stone renovated houses in narrow streets, and is easy to be reached from the lively village of Vrisses. The area is lush and green and is perfect for hikers offering stunning views over the White Mountains.
With terra cotta tiled floors, wooden doorways, arched windows, original beamed ceilings and traditional layout this villa would make a unique home from home.
