VACATION HOMES - PELOPONNESE
Beachfront Property near Corinth

An independent cottage of 25 m² with a sitting/sleeping area, a kitchenette and a bathroom completes the indoor spaces. A lovely swimming pool is a gathering point during the summer months, and there are covered terraces for outdoor relaxing and al fresco dining. The garden is abundant with olive trees and Mediterranean flora and is on the same level as the beach. The estate has a facade of approximately 100 meters on a quiet village road and 100 meters on the beach. It could be divided into nine land plots each of which would allow the building of 400 m², offering the possibility for total construction of 3,600 m². This is a rare opportunity to buy a seafront property which may be used as a private family home (for vacations or year-round) or for the development of several new houses.

This extraordinary estate of 916.000m² (over 330 acres) lies on the Peloponnese coast directly across from the picturesque island town of Hydra. It enjoys sweeping panoramic views across the sea over the cosmopolitan area of Porto Heli and the island of Dokos all the way to the harbor of Spetses. A beach house dating from the 1950's is nicely nestled on a small peninsula which acts as a link between two stunning beaches - one with white sand and one with pebbles. The beach house and a separate guest house offer a total of 9 bedrooms in interior space of 916 square meters. Additional buildings provide ample living space for domestic staff and agricultural workers. More than 4,000 mature trees produce olive oil, citrus, figs, pomegranates, grapes, and many other fruits, and create the feeling of a lush paradise. The estate has the enormous advantage of being self-sufficient with its own water sources. It could be developed as a hotel with associated private villas, it could be transformed into a magnificent family mansion, or it could be maintained as the simple natural hideaway it is today. Unpretentious and at the same time luxurious, with natural beauty and space in abundance, this property is a destination in itself. (Code: 8851169)

Perched on the cosmopolitan coast of Porto Heli, this glamorous estate enjoys its own beach and a private dock.

However the “pièce de résistance” of this property is the beach bungalow built of stone and featuring a large studio room with a kitchenette and a bathroom. This faces onto a white pebbled sand beach with turquoise waters and a private dock, so rare to find these days. From here it seems that you can almost touch the island of Spetses. Just a short boat ride across the bay is Nikki Beach, and the restaurants in the harbor of Porto Heli are within walking distance.
