Located in the heart of the city, within the gardens of the Acropolis Museum, Elysian View is one of Athens most unique Neoclassical buildings. Originally built as a family home in 1923, the building houses three separate apartments and staff quarters.
This century old home underwent a meticulous transformation in 2021. The result is stunning. From the moment you step inside, you can feel the charm and character that only a historic home can offer.
One of the standout features is the original 100-year-old terrazzo flooring that adorns each floor of this magnificent property. The current owner has taken great care to showcase this stunning flooring, with each floor boasting a distinct color palette and pattern that adds character to the entire space.
Extending across four levels, and with a 108 m² rooftop terrace, Elysian View blends historic charm with city center convenience.
On two levels, Apartment 1 offers exclusive entry to the rooftop terrace, providing 360-degree vistas of the Acropolis, the Acropolis Museum, and the city. Accessible through a well-lit first-level hallway, the apartment is arranged around this central space, encompassing a living room, dining area, kitchen, master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, a second bedroom and an additional bathroom. Abundant natural light floods these areas, with large windows framing unique views of the surroundings. Stairs lead up to the second level, featuring a spacious study convertible into an extra bedroom, along with the rooftop terrace and a compact support area complete with a sink and refrigerator.
An internal staircase leads to Apartment 2, a generous two-bedroom apartment with a delightful veranda overlooking the gardens of the museum, offering a spacious hallway, a well-appointed living room, dining area, kitchen, master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, a second bedroom, and a separate washroom.
Apartment 3 is on the lower level. This one-bedroom unit features a charming private garden on the same level as the museum’s olive grove. Accessed from the street, it encompasses a living room, a kitchen, and an en-suite bedroom.
With direct views of the Acropolis and other city landmarks such as Mount Lycabettus and Philopappou Hills, Elysian Views offers a rare opportunity to immerse yourself in Athens historical and cultural panorama.
Just a stone’s throw away is the charming paved street of Dionysiou Areopagitou, with the National Gardens, Athens Tennis Club, and the National Museum of Contemporary Arts (EMST) within walking distance. The vibrant neighborhoods of Plaka, Syntagma Square, and Kolonaki are easily accessible, placing the city’s best hotels and restaurants at your doorstep. The Acropolis Museum metro station is a minute away and the closest marina is just a 10-minute drive.
Whether utilized as three standalone units with a designated staff area or transformed into a luxurious single-family house, the possibilities are as diverse as the property itself.
