Information about neoclassical houses:
This is a neoclassical stone tower. These buildings were built around the very beginning of last century by wealthy Greek merchants from Egypt who used Pelion as their summer home. They often traveled with their servants. At that time Egypt was very much influenced by France. Thus these mansions have a French style and are foreign to Pelion which has its own traditional homes with extended upper floors. Neoclassical houses are basically a square building with each floor having 4 rooms at the 4 corners of the house. There are usually 2 upper floors and a semi-basement which because of the slope of the mountain from one side (towards the sea) look as if they are 3 full floors with a sea view veranda even at the lower floor. Typically each room has its own fire place.
The larger the stones and the wider the corridor in the centre of the house on each floor, was evidence of more wealth and affluence of the owners. Bathrooms and kitchen were usually in an annex close to the house. Verandas were all around the house but balconies were typically very slim and marginal and to date, in order to preserve the style, you are not allowed to build larger balconies for these houses. These mansions had a large amount of land around them which were cultivated by local farmers but now days the heirs of the aristocrats have sold much of the land and many of these houses are left with little or even no land.
Typically two side by side rooms on the top floor have a removable (slides) partition which if closed creates two bedrooms and if opened turns the rooms to a large function hall.
Other characteristics are that, in fear of pirates, these mansions were rarely built near or even visible from the sea. Similar to Pelion traditional houses the basement of these mansions were sometimes used to keep farm animals which also kept the upper levels warm during the winter months.
