In the heart of the city’s most prestigious suburb, this impressive villa measures 1.031m2 in total and is set in beautifully landscaped gardens of 2,902m2. Built in the 1920s and ideal for entertaining on a grand scale, the house exudes elegance and prestige with high ceilings and intricate decorative details. It includes superb reception areas with living and sitting rooms, a study with fireplace, a banquet room, a formal dining room, a fully-equipped kitchen with breakfast room, a guest wc, a master bedroom suite, four guest bedrooms with several walk-in closets, and an independent pool house which is currently used as an artist’s studio but may be transformed into an extra bedroom suite. The main living areas open onto the gardens which are a lush oasis with mature trees and a lovely 19-meter swimming pool circled by terraces. Other features include hand-carved oak panelling from the Chateau de Chantilly, a geometric design marble floor in the entrance hall, hand-carved oak doors with Louis XVI-style gilding, an oak staircase, an elegant banquet room which can sit up to sixty people for dinner, marble columns in the garden, and on the main terrace a carved marble balcony made in 1893 for the neoclassical mansion which is now the French Embassy in Athens. There is also an elevator, a second service staircase leading to staff quarters, and a parking area for up to 5 cars. The land plot is ideally located on a corner and facing onto a park. It has a building factor of 0.60 allowing for the current structure to be extended another 900m2. This is a very rare opportunity to acquire one of the crown jewels of Athens.
