A private driveway leads up to Lime House and outside, there are two outdoor dining areas, an outdoor seating area and a private 13m x 2.5m swimming pool. The property comfortably sleeps 6-8 people - you enter into an open-plan kitchen and living room, with white and grey flecked marble floors and a whitewashed wooden pitched ceiling. There are two double bedrooms, a mezzanine area with double bed and two bathrooms.
The property next door, Fig Cottage, can also be bought together with Lime House by separate negotiation. The properties are arranged to be private from each other with an old stone wall separating them, however there is also a gate allowing easy access to each cottage if needed. The total plot size totals 2.3 stremma and there are natural, terraced gardens full of olive, fruit and nut trees. Both properties have a clear uninterrupted view of the sea.
The property rents extremely well each season, both as two separate cottages or the option of the property as a whole, through three high end boutique agents and through its own website. There is a property maintenance team (for housekeeping and gardening) and an English, fluent Greek speaking property manager on the ground throughout the season.
Orchard Cottages are the oldest properties in Markandonata – the ruins originally date back to the 16th Century from which the current owner, an interior designer, completely restored them.
