The entrance to this traditional town house is on the middle level into a slate tiled hallway which leads to the sizeable master bedroom, with double bed, built-in pine closet and an antique bed-couch covered with lace cushions.
The bed is built up one step on a low platform. The main bathroom is completely tiled in marble, has bathtub/shower, is next door to the bedroom and also reached from the hallway. A wooden stairway leads to the third floor with a spacious living room with wood floors, beamed ceiling and antique furniture. At the top of the stairs is a tiny w/c with hand basin and in the far corner of the room is a sitting/sleeping area which is comprised of a sofa that can be made into one or two single platform-style beds that sit on the floor. The book lined walls and long windows looking out to the terrace makes a suitable sleeping area for kids.
The most extrordinary feature of the entire house though, is the corner terrace, which is actually an area taken out of the living room itself. With sliding French doors able to open out fully, you have a complete open-air patio with stunning views out to the slate and red tiled roof tops of the town, and the sea and harbour beyond. This pretty stone-tiled terrace offers fantastic views and is comfortably furnished to lend a perfect place for breakfast or morning coffee, and even better for those lazy afternoons, reading or relaxing with a glass of retsina, completey sheltered from the hot afternoon sun.
As in most of the old houses of town, the bottom semi-basement floor of the house comprises the kitchen and dining area and is lined on one wall with high windows. The pine dining table is very large and along two walls are ample built-in sofa type seating. The kitchen with its cooking facilities and it's pine cupboards and slate stone floors offer a cool area to cook in a traditional atmosphere.
