Built in 1878, this beautiful traditional two storey Santorini Mansion is located in the heart of the picturesque village of Megalochori. This is one of two Mansions in our portfolio that was once owned by the most powerful families on the island.
Santorini Mansion consists of two spacious self-contained units with a shared pool and its tastefully decorated with fine antique pieces of furniture. From the village square a small winding road leads you to the Mansion.
Enter into the large cobbled private courtyard, complete with pool. A stone stairway leads you to the first floor with large terraces and panoramic views of the village. The house consists of a traditional, well equipped kitchen, which leads into the large dining room with original wooden floors and vaulted ceiling, perfect for entertaining. A comfortable lounge adjoins the dining area. The spacious master bedroom is comfortable, bright and airy. A staircase leads to a private landing and second large double bedroom. An attractive bathroom with wood and stone features services both rooms.
The ground floor once served as the 'canava' - wine cellar and workshop - of the Mansion. Carved into the rock face every aspect of this Mansion is unique. The cylindrical troughs sunk into the ground, once used for distilling the visanto, provides unusual lighting features to the interior.
Three large barn-style doors lead from the cobbled courtyard into the various living areas. The smooth-edged carved interior provides a cool and relaxing haven during the hot summer days. The well equipped traditional-style central kitchen leads into the beautifully lit dining room, perfect for leisurely meals with friends and family. Arched doorways on either side of the kitchen allows for an easy flow through the house.
The large comfortable lounge is well appointed. The spacious sleeping area allows for two double bedrooms with a shared seating and dressing area. Double doors lead out into the private courtyard and pool area. The shared extravagant bathroom has a built-in Jacuzzi, seating area and large vanity. A few steps away from the attractive pool you will find a separate spacious double room with en-suite bathroom.
