An rare opportunity to buy an historic Tower Dwelling built in 1886 only 65 years after the battle for Independence.  This Tower dwelling is situated in a traditional Maniate village approx. 400 metres above sea level with spectacular views of the sea, the Messinian coastline and the Taygetos mountains.  It is in the centre of the village which has its own Kafenion and it is a 10 minute drive to the popular coastal resorts of Stoupa and Agios Nikoloas with their sandy beaches, waterside tavernas and amenities.
The Tower Dwelling is approx. 141m².   It  needs complete renovation but could be restored to make a comfortable house using the orginal stone and  architectural features of the dwelling which include the Agii which were used as supports to block up the windows in times of war but are now mostly used for potted plants.   It stands on a plot of  70.31m² and is situated on 3 floors.   An arched doorway leads into the courtyard on the ground floor which is approx. 38m²   including the arched Kamara (a semi barrel vaulted room) which also used to make the house strong against tremors, later used to house animals and now usually turned into a bathroom or extra bedroom.  This has an opening to the first floor so a staircase could easily be constructed.  Stone steps lead up to the first floor which consists of a spacious lounge, a secondary room and a kitchen area approx. 52m² in all.   Stairs lead up the second floor which consists of  large room approx. 52m² with  windows all around from which there is a spectacular view of  the  sea and  the mountains. 
This Tower Dwelling would suit some who has an interest in the history of the Mani and who is looking for an architectural renovation project of an historic Maniate  Tower Dwelling.
