A Greek house jutting into the Ionian Sea costs 5.5 million euros


A house on its own promontory jutting into the Ionian Sea in Greece has hit the market for 5.5 million euros ($5.89 million).

Located in Paxos, the smallest of the Ionian Islands, the residence is surrounded by water on three sides and offers direct access to a private beach and swimming area, as listed this week with Chestertons Ionian. This is the first time the house has been offered in nearly 30 years.

“Imagine having private access to your own secluded cove and beach, where you can swim to a rock in front of the villa and watch the dolphins play at sunrise or head out in your own kayaks to eat delicious Greek pastries from the local bakery in the lovely town of Loggos, just a 15 minute paddle away,” Piers Williams, CEO of Chestertons Ionian, said in a statement. “There aren’t many places where you can pick up your canoe or kayak groceries.”

Marmari Headland Villa, as it is known, was built in the 1970s for a judge and later became the island’s first rental property, according to the listing. The L-shaped house has five bedrooms, each with sea views, plus two open living rooms, a kitchen with SMEG appliances and a walk-in pantry and “orangery-style” dining room, which means it has walls of windows. overlooking the water.

Like any good beach house, there is plenty of outdoor space. This includes a stone terrace with a barbecue and the patio surrounding the salt water infinity pool overlooking the sea.

Every outdoor nook is surrounded by flowering plants like Bougainvillea and Plumbago and specimen trees such as Mastica, Cypress, and Olive.

A footpath leads to the water, and guests and residents can be on the sand in about 1 minute, according to the listing.

“Currently, like the UK domestic market, in Greece and especially the Ionian Islands, there are more buyers than stocks,” Mr Williams continued. “It is extremely rare for such an idyllic beachfront property to hit the market on the east coast of Paxos. People love that this island retains its authentic Greek charm and Venetian architecture.
