A small charming renovated stone house with the possibility of expansion located in a Greek mountain village


For sale in Mani a small charming renovated stone house with the possibility of extension located in a traditional Greek mountain village. Wonderful stone work and careful renovation: here you can choose the interior and live from day one or you can invest in expanding the downstairs. Lovely terrace around the whole house, shaded by vines, overlooking the village, Taygetos peaks and a glimpse of the sea. A small "own kingdom" in the beautiful Mani.

"The reality is that old houses that were built a hundred years ago were built by actual craftsmen, people who were the best in the world at what they did. The little nuances in the woodwork, the framing of the doors, the built-in nooks, the windows—all had been done by smart, talented people, and I quickly found that uncovering those details and all of that character made the house more inviting and more attractive and more alive.”― Joanna Gaines

Property ID: EKJ1894, Kato Chora (Milea), Messinia Mani

The property is surrounded by a wall and is accessed today via a charming green walkway. An impressive gate and stone walkway lead you past a garden and spice garden to the house's terrace and main entrance. From here you reach a compact kitchen (approx. 13 sq m) with space for a small dishwasher and dining table, a bathroom (3,5 sq m) with shower (there is room for a small washing machine here), a small hall (approx. 2 sq m), a bedroom (approx. 11 sqm) with access to the balcony and a living room (approx. 24 sqm) with access to the balcony and with four windows. The entire house has tiled floors: wood-like in the kitchen and living room and more traditional rust colored tiles in the bedroom.

A beautiful traditional wooden ceiling, white walls and the charming view create a lot of atmosphere in the house and an interesting green/yellow shimmering light streaming in from the windows and doors. The terrace has good quality stone slabs, goes around the entire house and is a total of approx. 47 square meters. Since the kitchen has its own entrance, there is also the possibility of converting the living room into an extra bedroom, if you so wish.

The ground floor of the old house can be renovated and turned into an atmospheric extra bedroom with en-suite bathroom and we can put you in touch with the construction company who renovated the house and are known in this area for their fantastic work and reliability of delivery. The same construction company can help you build a driveway with a parking space, the preliminary cost for this would be about 5000-6000 euros. Note that the seller is open to taking on part of the costs for this work!

The house today has no heating, but there are smart solutions that allow you to heat the whole house with the help of a stove that can easily be installed in the living room at a small cost. Water is heated with electricity (boiler of 80 liters) but on the large plot there is plenty of space to mount solar panels (approx. cost 1000 euros) and acquire a large water tank for approx. 650 euros. The plot is terraced and lacks visibility from neighbors so there is good potential to build a pool surrounded by the well-grown trees.

Kato Chora / Milea, Messinia Mani, Peloponnese, Greece

The name Milea (or Milia) is first mentioned in the Venetian document from 1465 and comes from the fruit tree (apple tree) or (according to other sources) from the Homeric word for goats ("mila"). In Milea there are many beautifully restored traditional houses and an impressive number of churches (about 70) in and near the village.

Milea is located about 15 km from the popular coastal villages such as Agios Nikolaos and Stoupa and about 30-40 km from the mysterious "Deep Mani" with its fantastic castles and wild coves.
