The house consists of three levels : Ground Floor – First Floor – Second Floor.
On the Ground Floor there is an independent and complete condo ( 164,20 square meters )with a spacious living room , kitchen , a toilet and one bedroom.
On the First Floor there are two bedrooms and the house entrance with the staircase leading to the second floor. Every bedroom has its own bathroom with a Jacuzzi bathtub. In the big one it’s round with a 2 meter diameter , while in the small one it’s regular size. There is also in the small room. Both rooms have also got a fireplace made of white stone.
On the second floor ( 88,74 m2 ) there is a living room, a small WC for the guests and an open kitchen which communicates with the rest of the room. There will also be a stony fireplace.
The roof is made of big trunks of coco palm which have been brought from Indonesia and the rest of the wooden elements of the house are from walnut wood. On the outside on the top there are tiles the kind which is mandatory for all the houses built on the island of Hydra, and the insulation of the house is of very good quality so there won’t be any heating loss during the winter and cooling during the summer.
On the same floor there is a big balcony 11mx3,35m which has a wonderful view of the sea and the sunset every afternoon. There is also a garden with a very big cypress tree in the centre.
The floors on the bedrooms of the house will be designed and made of American oak combined with white marble.
The outside walls of the house will be made of white stone which has been carved piece by piece for this purpose by special craftsmen. The whole process of the stones has been carried out in the area of Mani which is in south Peloponnesus , then transported with lorries in Piraeus harbor and shipped to the island of Hydra and finally carried with mules to the building site. Every craftsman is able to carve 6 to 10 stones a day, and up to now there have been transported approximately 20000 stones to the building site. There have also been transported and are ready to use all the marble and the wood for the interior of the house.
The two bathrooms will be coated with the marble “onyx”, which has already been transported to the building site, and the floors with white marble. The toilet’s and the wash basins are also from white marble of excellent quality.
The entrance of the house is from white marble and also the basement floor will be from white marble.
The windows will be made of “Iroko” wood from Africa and will be manufactured by the best carpenter of the area. This is mandatory according to the Urban planning Office and the archaeologists, since the island of Hydra is considered to be a traditional settlement and has very strict building and constructing laws. Let me emphasize the fact that there are no cars on the island and all the transportations are made with mules which automatically increases the cost of the whole endeavor and it needs more time than under normal circumstances. Another important fact that you must be aware of, is that the exterior of the house cannot be changed everything must stay according to the blueprints since by law when the building permit has been approved by the archaeological committee and issued, nothing can change whereas in the interior since the house is new all kinds of changes can be carried out.
Central heating is not available and there has been no license issued for one. The reason is that it is not usual for the island this kind of heating since the transportation of oil is difficult. Very few houses have this kind of heating, most houses on the island have wooden stoves, fireplaces or air conditioning which is the kind we have planned for this house with big heaters all over the house. If you decide for central heating though, it can be arranged at this stage of construction.
In the contract there will be a detailed description of all the materials used in the house as well as all the probable changes needed to be done according to the buyers wishes. All the payment terms will be discussed in detail with the buyer as well as everything concerning the Greek legislature along with the way these kinds of transactions are carried out in Greece.
I would like to emphasize the fact that it is legal according to the Greek law to sell this house to anybody interested from all over the world. Nationality is not an issue.
The Greek government published the new Greek immigration law ( 4146/2013 ) which grants residence permits to non-

Hydra is a beautiful island lying in the archipelago called the Argo-
Hydra is an island with immense natural preserved beauty and historical significance, where no cars or other vehicles are allowed. All products, food, furniture, heating oil, building materials are carried by mules. For this reason to build a new house is consider as a feat.

It is located 36 miles south of Athens and accessible daily from Athens central port (Piraeus) by frequent scheduled hydrofoils that make the trip in one hour 15’ minutes.
