ref 342: ‘Wealthy’ Mansion in Platanos – Pandeli
– Very well preserved historical building in Leros , built in the beginning of last century, by a well known wealthy family.
This grand structure is one of the few really wealthy ones in Leros, it has a rich history and is the birthplace of a famous architect.
Built in 1905, with only the best materials available in that era, so that even now, 110 years later, there are no cracks in the 70 cm thick outer walls.
-The Mansion is positioned very centrally on the island, right between Platanos and Pandeli, along the main road.
Both the central square of Platanos and the beach of Pandeli are at walking distance. The place is vibrant and the view is never dull.
The uplifted position relative to the busy street, ensures your rest and quietness.
Access to the place is excellent, and there is more than enough parking space on the property, and even more very nearby.
-Maintenance, preservation and restoration has always been done with respect for the character of the house, although, at a certain point, an extension has been made to the back of the building to add bathrooms and kitchenettes, in order to change the house into a classy luxury pension.
The condition of the house is generally very good, the only part that really would need attention at the moment are the outer walls which just need a fresh layer of paint.
-The house breathes opulence and wealth, as well from the outside when you climb the impressive entrance stairway, as from the inside, with (a.o.) handpainted artwork on most of the handmade wooden ceilings.
The craftsmanship you find here is one that doesn’t exist any more.
-The house consists of three floors:
– two higher floors (the ‘main’ ground floor and a ‘first’ floor)
– a ‘lower’ floor which is a full standalone apartment.
When you enter the main ‘ground’ floor, a very spacious hallway welcomes you. It is clearly made to impress, with wide stairs and high ceilings.
On the same floor, there is a formal dining room, two bedrooms, and a kitchen.
The second floor has a big living room, a study room and more bedrooms.
The main bedroom has access to the front balcony, that gives an impressive view on tha castle, the old mills, and Pandeli in general.
