The Old House previously called The Mansion was built in 1810 in the early stages of British rule, at the end of the Venetian period on the island of Kefalonia. It has been lovingly restored to a high standard conserving the original style and character. To provide two separate self-contained residences the building has been vertically divided with separate staircases but this could easily be re-united into a single dwelling with six bedrooms.
The two separate residences are known as North View and the Museum. Each property is has two storeys plus a loft and is different in size. North View has a small basement, which houses the mains distribution board and other service equipment.
North View has an open plan living room with kitchen/diner on the ground floor plus a bathroom. On the 1st floor there are two bedrooms and a bathroom and on the 2nd floor another bedroom, a bathroom and a small storage area.
The Museum comprises also has a ground floor, open plan living room with kitchen/diner and a bathroom. On the 1st floor, 2 bedrooms and bathroom and on the 2nd floor another bedroom, bathroom and storage.
The Museum houses 2 original olive presses and a millstone which have been renovated, are still in working order and cleverly incorporated into the living area.
A third accommodation, The Aloni, constructed out of the former stable, faces the area where the aloni, or corn threshing ground, is still situated. The Aloni has an open plan living room with kitchen/diner on the ground floor. An unusual feature is the bathroom which still houses the original wood-burning oven. One bedroom is on the first floor. Private garden with lovely rural views.
It is possible to privatise the road access to The Aloni which currently shares the driveway with the other two residences.
North View, Museum, The Aloni, the two-car garage and the remains of the old horse house stand on a plot of land that measures 6400m2 leaving ample space to extend the garage, lay more access roads and build a swimming pool.
