A Traditional Captain's Home in Galaxidi
A TRADITIONAL CAPTAIN'S HOME IN GALAXIDI
The house is one of the few original Captain's houses in Galaxidi, built in 1840 and belonging to the same family for the past five generations. It has been listed as a landmark property by the Ministry of Culture, being part of the architectural heritage of Galaxidi. Restored carefully with respect to the original architecture, it does not lack in modern comforts. Only a few steps from the sea and the picturesque small harbour, the house of 348 m2 stands out with its simple yet imposing architecture, representative of the historical period when Galaxidi was a nautical power. An oversized room of 120 m2 (originally used as the place to dry and repair the sails of merchant ships) with sea views from numerous windows features a high ceiling with wooden beams, a fireplace, and authentic 19th century wooden floors. This is one of the highlights of this historic house which was featured several times as a film set. The house also includes two big and comfortable bedrooms, a living and dining area, two kitchens (one on each floor), two bathrooms, and auxiliary spaces which may easily be converted to additional guestrooms with bathrooms. A private courtyard on two levels, ideal for alfresco dining, completes the home. This unique property is immediately available for a buyer who will enjoy its tradition and history.
