Fully-furnished, romantic penthouse with traditional architectural elements in "urban-picturesque" Athenian neighborhood, Kerameikos. Stunning wooden roof. Wi-fi, 2 desktop PCs, private patio & roof garden, 2 x 1.5 m projection screen & projector, sound system with 6 fitted speakers, autonomous heating/cooling system. Most points of interest (archaeological sights, museums, restaurants etc) within walking distance. You will love it!
[For commercial use please request a special offer].
The penthouse comprises an independent loft of 140 sq.m., a separate cozy bedroom for 2, a roof garden and a patio with a water well.
It is situated at the upper floor of a fully renovated eclectic neoclassical building dating back to the 1930's. As it belonged to a talented carpenter, we can admire to this day the amazing wooden staircase that takes you up to, what has often been described as, "The Doll House". More recently the space has been used as a corseterie atelier.
Decorated with vintage furniture from the 50s and the 60s; ceramic tiles (ceramedia) produced by hand in the area (Ceramikos); woven blankets and carpets made in the 40s and the 50s; framed vintage cross-stitch designs and fashion prints.
Feel free to read the art and fashion books available or fool around with the hats collection!
Plenty of natural light coming through the tall windows and the two skylights.
When you arrive you will find a dossier with information on how to connect your devices to the Wi-Fi, play your music using the built-in sound system or watch a movie at the 1,5x2m. projection screen. Make yourself at home by adjusting the lighting.
Exhausted from the trip? Head to the kitchen and you will find a welcome bite.
If you are arriving at Athens by plane, get the metro from the Airport and get off at Monastiraki in order to change to the red line with direction towards Aghios Antonios. Then get off at Metaxourghio. Walk on the left side of Achileos street. Take the sixth road to your left; this should be Thermopylon street. On the first right-hand corner you will see the white neoclassical building. If your turn on Paramythias street, you will also find the entrance :)
If you are coming by car, turn from the National Highway on to Leoforos Athinon with direction to Athens Center. Drive straight until you are on a bridge. Right at the bottom of it turn right on to Thermopylon street. Well done; you can now park your car! The house is situated at the first right-hand corner.
The penthouse has a fully independent entrance. Guests have exclusive access to the roof garden and the water-well patio.
