Property Description

Conveniently situated in a quiet and tranquil part of the village, close to the church on the hill overlooking the bay in Adamas, Milos Island, the house is about 300 metres from the ferry boat port, and only 5 kms from the airport. With 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, this spotless home has been totally renovated and modernised, while still retaining the character and charm of a traditional Greek village home.

3 Bedroom/2 Bathroom Home For Sale In Milos Island, Cyclades
Asking Price: £151 500

Although only about 100 metres above the foreshore/"paralia" with its many tavernas and shops, the atmosphere is wonderfully peaceful and quiet. One cannot hear the buzz of the summer visitors, nor hear any noise from passing motor cars as the house does not face onto a road, but onto a 3-metre-wide lane which has only steps for pedestrians, walking past the house to the nearby church. Parking for the house is about 25 metres away, at the top of the stairs on the road in front of the church.

Built on 2 levels with a sweeping view of the bay from the balcony, the house has 3 bedrooms, 2 being upstairs and the main bedroom on the ground level. There are 2 bathrooms (one on each level), a combined living/dining room with an internal staircase which leads to the upper level, and a modern kitchen. The kitchen appliances are a front-loading washing machine, a new 3-plate cooker with oven and a dish washing machine, plus 2 refrigerators. Water is heated by a solar system, backed-up by electricity for winter. A new water pump and pressure container is installed and connected to a very large underground storage tank/"sterna".

The house will be sold furnished to a high standard, together with a connected telephone. In addition to local TV, there is a free-to-air satellite system which receives TV channels from all over the world without any payment. The 3 bedrooms can sleep up to 9 people, with 2 more on a sleeper/couch in the living room, if required.

A typical Cycladic island feature is the external staircase from the entrance patio to the balcony and entrance door on the upper level, which allows guests to come and go without disturbing the main household.

Upstairs, bedrooms 2 and 3 are particularly interesting and unusual; they have very high ceilings which allow for each bedroom to have a 2-metre-high sleeping platform built from timber and locally known as "tavlota", while still leaving space for conventional beds or chairs on the tiled floor beneath the platforms.

At the rear of the house, off the kitchen, there is a secluded stone-paved entertainment area and garden, which is delightfully shaded by 2 spreading olive trees and a huge old fig tree. A wonderful cool and private place in which to read a book or enjoy your breakfast or lunch.

Absolutely perfect for summer holidays, this immaculate and charming old home simply overflows with an atmosphere of love and happiness.

Milos is a spectacular and unspoilt island, still relatively undiscovered by tourists, with a regular bus service to the many beautiful beaches and upper villages. You can fly (40 minutes) directly from the mainland International Airport or get there by sea from the port of Piraeus, with daily high-speed ferries (about 3 hours) or on the lovely older traditional ships via three other islands (about 7 hours).

There are many taxis, car and motor bike/scooter hire firms, and restaurants and tavernas everywhere, also many music clubs and bars for those who want to enjoy an exciting night life on a wonderful island.
