Stately Kissos Mansion

If walls could talk, this estate would surely have some amazing stories. Built in 1852, this stately Pelion mansion ("Archontiko") originally belonged to a family of wealthy merchants who made their fortune in silkworm farming. They could financially afford the most beautiful location for their new home so they chose the enchanting village of Kissos. With stunning views overlooking the Aegean and being located only approximately 15 minutes from the region's most scenic beaches, the home is close enough for a spontaneous trip to the sea, yet far enough to enjoy undisturbed privacy whenever desired.

Throughout the decades - or rather centuries - the property was always immaculately maintained. In 1982 it was carefully rehabbed by its owner, whose goal was to carefully modernize it while not losing focus of the home's historic integrity in the process. This approach was further honored and continued by the estate's current owners who acquired the home in 1994. In 2006, specialists rebuilt all of the foundations and added additional layers of structural support, way surpassing all existing building codes. A detached annex building was also renovated from the ground up around the same time. Today, the mansion presents itself in its former glory again and the only thing missing are new owners who value its history as much as its understated grandeur and idyllic location.

Inside, the main house has eight (bed-)rooms, a modern kitchen, two bathrooms and four additional rooms in the fully insulated basement that can be used for storage, as a workshop or for whatever other purpose you envision. All in all, the home has approximately 300 square meters of living space, thus you will not outgrow it easily. Also, it will be sold fully furnished and is therefore move-in ready. One of the home's many attractive features are the beautiful hardwood floors throughout, which were either refinished or rebuilt by local craftsmen. Other areas, for instance the bathrooms, were outfitted with low maintenance tile floors. The property's roof is clad with traditional Pelion pavers, which underlines the estate's classic pedigree and ensures appropriate curb appeal. A small adjacent building is equipped with a functioning, wood burning wall oven and also comes with a lovely rustic bar for nights of entertaining. Exposed wooden ceiling rafters and old world-style brick walls add to the ambience of the structure.

Location, Location, Location

The property is located on the outskirts of Kissos village, providing great privacy on the one hand and spectacular, unobstructed views of the Aegean on the other. The entire lot is approximately 1500 square meters in size and has been professionally landscaped. Mature trees surround this compound, which is further appointed with five beautiful terraces that were designed on different plateaus around the building. Hence, you will always find your own shady place under the sun to kick back and relax or surf the web via the property's fast Internet and wifi. Plenty of space also to put a table and chairs outside for al fresco dining under the stars! The home is easily accessible and ample parking is available outside. Needless to say, the villa is connected to municipal water mains, and the electrical system was also upgraded in the recent past, making this a perfect all year round home and a sound investment. Just remember: They simply don't make them like this anymore!
