Walking through the north-facing, lower of three entrances, this property for sale on Hydra is organized into three definite built areas. From the lower entrance, you look up over the garden rooms to the front facade of the main two-floor house. Going right, there is the main terrace with a water feature.


Stunning views of both Hydra and Kamini harbors arise in front of you, framed by lush green pine trees. The main double entrance doors open to this primary terrace from the west. Steps cut through dark red mountain stone lead to the breakfast terrace which is shaded from the morning sun.


The ground floor of the main house serves as the property’s interior hub. It offers an open-plan living room with sea views, a hand-crafted, fitted kitchen with a double marble sink, a concealed dishwasher, an electric oven, and a hob. Double doors to the kitchen dining terrace and a traditional fireplace are ideal for cozy winter evenings.


At the far end of the living room, there is a deep entrance cut through the wall of what used to be a cisterna. This quaintly shaped room is used as a TV chill-out room or a bedroom when needed. Behind the living room, off the entrance hall, there is the family bathroom, with a small bath and shower over it, next to wooden stairs to the top floor.


The principal bedroom occupies the entire top floor, designed in the style of a Virani. This traditional room style is used by the principal owner of the house not only as a bedroom but also as a personal living space and office. Currently, this room includes a sitting area and plenty of bookshelves along the solid stone walls. It has wooden flooring and it’s open to the rafters. The bedroom, positioned in the back corner on a raised stone platform one step higher than the rest of the room, allows you to check the weather through the window without getting out of bed.


The Virani room comes with a north, sea-facing Juliet balcony and access to the top-floor terrace. This terrace offers the most tremendous, unobstructed 180° views of the island below, the sea stretching to the mainland, and Dokos Island to the west. From here, you can enjoy the sunrise, but also the spectacular sunset. From the east top terrace, you can walk around the back of the house, passing a sunken garden, and continue up to the third east entrance.


The guest house is a separate, flat-roofed building located to the west of the main house. It can be accessed either from the breakfast terrace or through the main house’s back garden. The studio-style room features a bed platform at one end, with a part of the living space raised and including a small fitted kitchen. The small shower room is off the lower side of the living space. Opposite the entrance, at the far end of the room, the studio opens to its private terrace, shaded by pine trees and set against the backdrop of a disused stone chapel.


The flat roof terrace above the studio is a magnificent place to organize a dinner party. With plenty of wall lights and a sky as your ceiling adorned with twinkling stars, the evening and night-time views are stunning. Based on my personal experience, the roof terrace can comfortably host twenty guests for dinner. And if you want more of a party, there’s an easy flow between terraces for guests to mingle and socialize.


Steps from the roof terrace lead down to the breakfast terrace and easily continue the flow down to the main water-feature terrace. If you enjoy entertaining, hosting a party for around a hundred guests is very doable at this spacious real estate on Hydra. It’s equally practical for accommodating occasional guests while maintaining privacy.


From the breakfast terrace, you can walk to the front elevation to reach the kitchen terrace. The ground floor living room and kitchen of the main house are open to this terrace, making it an ideal spot for family meals when you prefer not to dine indoors. Steps down from the kitchen terrace bring you back to the lower street entrance and the third built area of the property, the garden rooms.


In the lower garden, there is a terrace shaded by pine trees. Here, you’ll find a small bedroom that serves as the garden furniture storage room in winter. Adjacent to it is a bathroom that also functions as a utility room and laundry. At the top of the entrance steps, there is a large outdoor brick-built oven.

Neighbourhood

Hydra Panoramic is located in the Kiafa area, where families in the 18th century built their holiday and country homes. This part of Kiafa is closer to upper Kamini, with houses more spread out and not clustered together. While central Kiafa feels fortified, this outlying suburb is more laid back, with each property surrounded by high solid walls that provide privacy rather than a fortified feel.


This property for sale on Hydra is completely private and not overlooked by its few neighbors. The neighbors are a mix of Athenian country and holiday homeowners, a few expat part-time owners, and a few locals. Immediately below the lower wall, the closest house is owned by an expat who is a quiet full-time resident of Hydra. Next to the guest house is an old, disused church. It doesn’t hold services or the annual name day celebration, so the future owner will not be disturbed by ringing bells.


This luxurious real estate on Hydra is located in one of the island’s quietest areas. While you won’t hear much human noise, you will hear noisy yet charming cicadas and a barking dog alerting the neighborhood to a stranger. The serene atmosphere is occasionally interrupted by a couple of mules having a braying contest that will make you think you’ve landed in Jurassic Park. I would be happy to introduce the buyer to the mule owner, who can offer a better local price and is happy to deliver on his way home.


This property for sale is positioned geographically high and nearly on the border of the town. The shortest, most straightforward route from the clock tower in Hydra Harbor to the front entrance to the property is 767m. It’s properly made up of stone steps all the way but with the last 30 meters over an unmade earth path to the lower entrance door.

Utilities & Technical

  • Main supply for electricity and water

  • Three traditional “vothros” for sewage disposal

  • The large freshwater cisterna is located below the machine room for the water feature, beneath the main terrace. It is connected to the town supply to supplement it when rainfall is insufficient to fill the cisterna. A pump is installed to maintain good water pressure within the house.

Observations

Though the house and terraces appear to have been there for decades, they are actually relatively new builds by Hydra standards. The house is very well-built and in excellent structural condition, allowing you to move in immediately without any need for major construction work.


Due to the number of steps from the port, I wouldn’t recommend this house to families with very young children as carrying toddlers up from the town or beach would be backbreaking. However, families with teenagers, especially those who enjoy hiking or spending lazy days around the house, will love it.


The main hiking trail, which extends from Agios Konstantinos to the east, winding along the back of Hydra Town’s valleys, Kamini, and down to the beach at Vlychos, is located just below the house. It’s an easy ten-minute walk to the beach at Vlychos for an average fit person. Above, you’ll find trails leading to Agios Matrona, Profitis Elias, Eros, Limnioniza, and across the Episkopi.


This is a perfect location for quiet, creative contemplation and would suit writers, composers, and artists who will be in a rush to get their brushes out inspired by the most stunning views.
