This partly renovated 2 storey house is in the courtyard garden at the rear of The Old Taverna, opposite the main square in Ichalia, a small village near to Meligalas in the southern Peloponnese.
The house provides 80 sq.m. of accomodation, with a ground floor of 45 sq.m. and a first floor of 35 sq.m. The house is on a plot of some 350 sq.m. which includes a private courtyard garden with a well, fruit trees and vines.
The building has a red tile roof, supported by traditional exposed beams and timbers on the first floor where there is also an open fireplace. The internal walls of this floor have been rendered.
Further work is required to complete the restoration, including plumbing, electric wiring, new doors and windows, external rendering. The ground floor requires full renovation externally and internally. The present owner, who is an architect, estimates that the cost of completing the renovations should be in the region of 15,000 Euro, subject to the buyers requirements and specifications. Full plans of the proposed new room lay out are available. It was the owners intention to complete the renovations himself but sudden ill health has prevented this and forced him to place the property on the market.
The house is suitable for use as a permanent residence, a holiday home or as an investment property. It could also be bought in conjunction with the main building formerly The Old Taverna (ref; pel74) which is at present being converted into apartments.
The completion of the new Athens - Kalamata motorway which is only 1 km from the house has recently opened up this part of the southern Peloponnese, which is an area of outstanding natural beauty, with magnificent mountain scenery and 20 minutes to the west, the long sandy beaches of Kalo Nero.
The regional capital, Kalamata, with its modern yacht marina, long promenade and a wide range of shopping facilities, restaurants and tavernas, lies 30 kms to the south. Kalamata is also the gateway to the Mani. Already the new motorway and the luxury golf resort at Navarino have increased the areas attractions to both domestic and foreighn tourists, creating a demand for accomodation in the small villages in this part of Messinia.
Ichalia is a typical Greek village with a large square, where a popular weekly market is held every Sunday. It also has a mini market and a doctors surgery is held in the village twice a week. In nearby Meligalas, there is a supermarket and a range of shopping facilities, as well as a medical centre.
The Peloponnese is one of the last unspoilt regions of Europe. The mountain and coastal scenery is in many places breathtaking. The region is dotted with small villages where life goes on unchanged and where the occasional donkey can still be seen.
