Happy Monday! This week, by popular request, and because I wish I could be there enjoying the warmth and sunshine, we will take a journey to Greece! I don’t normally post property in ruins, but this turn-of-the-century mansion in northern Crete is architecturally stunning, and so romantic. Lots of potential. And those gigantic orange trees!
Per the listing, there are rights for a new construction but I would hate to see this beauty replaced by a humdrum modern structure. Can you imagine this place restored, with the stairway and columns giving way to a luxurious, vintage-styled villa? Perhaps with a few modern touches like a saltwater pool to take in the panoramic views, and solar powered energy to make it eco-friendly. It could be so sumptuous with the right renovation!
From the listing on Euro Immo:
