Two storey Santorini Mansion Santorini



Built in 1878, this beautiful traditional two storey Santorini Mansion is located in the heart of the picturesque village of Megalochori. Ref: 36230 This is one of two Mansions in our portfolio that was once owned by the most powerful families on the island. At the turn of the century the first floor would have been occupied by the family with the ground floor serving as the winery and cellar.The Visanto produced was exported to Russia, where it was used by the Russian Orthodox Church for Holy Communion. The Russian Revolution had a big impact on the wealth of families in this once flourishing village. The original structure has been sensitively renovated, and has been restored to its original splendour, retaining the original layout and traditional features. Mansion 1878 consists of two spacious self-contained units with a shared pool and its tastefully decorated with fine antique pieces of furniture. From the village square a small winding road leads you to the Mansion. Enter into the large cobbled private courtyard, complete with pool. A stone stairway leads you to the first floor with large terraces and panoramic views of the village. The house consists of a traditional, well equipped kitchen, which leads into the large dining room with original wooden floors and vaulted ceiling, perfect for entertaining. A comfortable lounge adjoins the dining area. The spacious master bedroom is comfortable, bright and airy. A staircase leads to a private landing and second large double bedroom. An attractive bathroom with wood and stone features services both rooms. The villa is 20 km from Santorini Airport airport. 10 km from Athinios port. MANSION 1878 - CANAVA The ground floor once served as the ’canava’ - wine cellar and workshop - of the Mansion. Carved into the rock face every aspect of this Mansion is unique. The cylindrical troughs sunk into the ground, once used for distilling the visanto, provides unusual lighting features to the interior. Three large barn-style doors lead from the cobbled courtyard into the various living areas. The smooth-edged carved interior provides a cool and relaxing haven during the hot summer days. The well equipped traditional-style central kitchen leads into the beautifully lit dining room, perfect for leisurely meals with friends and family. Arched doorways on either side of the kitchen allows for an easy flow through the house. The large comfortable lounge is well appointed. The spacious sleeping area allows for two double bedrooms with a shared seating and dressing area. Double doors lead out into the private courtyard and pool area. The shared extravagant bathroom has a built-in Jacuzzi, seating area and large vanity. A few steps away from the attractive pool you will find a separate spacious double room with en-suite bathroom. Large family or a group of friends that may require two independent properties will find this the perfect solution without compromising privacy and comfort. Combined this Mansion can accommodate up to 10 guests. About Megalochor imegalochori (9.5 km from Fira) is a rock village dug into the bed of a torrent in the interior of the island that is know to have existed since at least the middle of the 17th century. A small place (the name means "Big Village") but with a lively community, old mansions, restored canavas and numerous churches. A picturesque settlement definitely worth a visit!
