Description - Property A
In a unique location only 2 km. from the town (the Chora) and
port of Tinos with panoramic views over the Aegean, ancient
Delos and Rhenia, estate (A) occupies an exceptionally beautiful
area of land covering 8038 sqm. The property includes building
complexes composed of a main two-storey house together with
independent stone-built hostels, auxiliary spaces inside and
outside the house and a chapel incorporating a guesthouse, all
of a total area of 472.50 sqm. The immediate surroundings
include an outdoor bbq, a traditional oven, pergolas,
stone-built outdoor dining-spaces, scattered stone-built seating
areas, a vaulted rock chamber with a spring of rare beauty and
an area of biological agricultural cultivation, all planned so
as to blend in perfectly with the natural environment. In the
northern parts of the estate is an array of concrete-built
underground water/irrigation tanks and a borehole. The
aesthetics of the entire building complex - main house, hostels
and chapel - is perfectly integrated with the natural
surroundings as well as with the minimalistic Cycladic
landscape, as it also is with the organic farmland, the highly
attractive trademark hand-fashioned masonry and the internal
stone-built pathways of the estate. In a word, the whole exudes
a sense of peace, euphoria and harmonious functionality.

the total extent of habitable space, including the basement and
auxiliary spaces, is 376.00 sqm.
The habitation is organized on three levels.
The ground floor is comprised of a large kitchen and utility

rooms, and the possibility to configure a bathroom – w/c. In
addition, there are several ancillary/storage spaces in the

housing complex is not subject to time restrictions as the
building permit is valid indefinitely.
The property is surrounded by traditional stone walls and is
composed of terraced landscaping incorporating trees, groves and
organic horticultural cultivations.
The housing complex is completed up to the level of the bearing
structure (concrete) and the complete external mechanical
networks including the biological sewage treatment installation.
Besides the main house totaling 376 sqm. of habitable space,
including both main and auxiliary spaces, the property also

also, providing direct access to the organic farming area of the

method of construction of the centuries-old chapels of Tinos.

of the property and the housing area.

and the existing hydraulic irrigation network of the estate.
• All parts of the property are fully accessible via internal
walkways composed of stone paths and stairways, the whole
creating a strikingly picturesque web of natural promenades.
• All round the perimeter of the estate, the stone-built walling
that delineates the physical boundaries of the estate has been
beautifully reconstructed, along with the extensive stone
masonry surrounding the residence area.
• The residence is provided with an exterior car-park for 3
vehicles, overlooking the entrance of the house.

completed at the estate infrastructure level.
Beyond the Stream Adjacent
The adjacent properties, beyond the little winter stream, namely
(3) and (2B) constitute an additional area of a total of 6904.58
sq.m. facing south. They are characterized by a mild morphology,
a serene landscape with ample views to the Aegean and
specifically ancient Delos and Rhenia, gentle slopes and several
flat areas ideal for further cultivation. The area has further
building possibilities, according to current legislation (Sep
2021), estimated at 250-450 sq.m. (including basements), always
depending on the architectural design of buildings and the use
or not of basements and under-earth construction configurations.
In area (3) there is a completely renovated stone building that
until recently was used as a winery. The plot (2B) includes
three old traditional cells/barns, one of which is about 35 sq.m.
in size (plus an old threshing floor on the outside); the
building an example and a historical testimony of a dry
masonry/construction technique, which as unsurpassed technical
knowledge of times past has to the greatest extent been lost.
From the rural road to the south, a picturesque passageway
begins, crossing plots (3), (2B), (2A) and reaching the estate
(1) to the north. The entrance to properties (3)/(2B), is either
from the main property (A) with a beautiful little stone bridge
over the stream (pedestrian crossing), constituting a natural
boundary between properties (A) and (3)/(2B)/(2A), or from the
rural road in the south through property (3) (pedestrian +
The beautiful and extensive beaches of Agios Fokas, lying east
of the Chora and with Kionia to the west, are located at
distances of 1.5 and 2.5 km. respectively from the estate. The
alluring beaches of Agios Ioannis Porto and Agios Sostis are
located 8 km from the estate.
It's hard to describe the truly remarkable sense of peace and
euphoria one feels looking out from the estate over the Aegean,
the magical islands dotting the extraordinary azure expanse of
the sea, the unparalleled Cycladic light—but also the
indescribable beauty and uniqueness of the Tinos Island
