At an exceptional location, perched on the foothills of the ‘sacred’ Mount Imittos (a name that comes from pre-hellenic times), one of the peaks that surround the Athenian basin rising majestically to the east of the city of Athens and whose slopes are shrouded in magic and mystery, land 400m₂, with breathtaking view.
Being on the periphery of the urban context of the Papagos residential suburb, in the Metropolitan Area of Athens, is directly adjacent to the protected woodlands and wildlife refuge of Mount Imittos (Natura 2000 network).
Dawn breaks over the top of M.Imittos, on the east side of the property, a fusion of light that tumbles down the wooded slopes, entering unhindered the residence. And, as the sun descends on the opposite side, after travelling over the “city of light”, filling the sky with spectacular and vibrant colors, M.Imittos often appears immersed in a purple haze, forming, with the rest of the mountains that surround the city, Athens’ renowned, since antiquity, “violet crown” (Pindar,518-438BC).
The property includes an industrial design, 184m₂ (24m₂ non-residential), detached house, built in 1973, that could be renovated. With reference to the current, strictly residential, urban planning of the suburb, a 400m₂ residence (plus non-residential structures), with a max height of 15,5m, can be built, while, further 240m₂ (plus further 15m₂ non-residential) can be added to the existing structure.
It is situated 7,5km from Athens city centre, 26km from Eleftherios Venizelos Airport [via Imittos ringroad (A64) and Attiki Odos (E94/A6), 19’ by car] and 19km from Piraeus Port (at least 30’ drive – actual time depends on traffic). There are two Metro stations (Ethniki Amyna & Katehaki) in a distance less than 3km and they can be reached by car (5-8’), by bus (17-30’) or even on foot (30-40’). Using the Metro lines it takes just 8-12’ to reach Athens city centre and less than 1h to reach the Airport and Piraeus Port. It takes 6’ to reach the ringroad of M.Imittos A64 (it passes southeast of the suburb) and less than 15’ to reach the major ringroad of Athens, Attiki Odos (E9/A6).
The suburb/municipal unit of Papagos, an area of approximately 3.100m₂ at an altitude of 232m, is part of the Municipality of Papagos-Cholargos – one of the 73 municipalities of the Metropolitan Area of Athens that sprawl around the city to all directions – and is located in the (north) eastern part of the Athens agglomeration (Northern Athens Regional Unit). Named after the Marshal Alexandros Papagos, the general who led the Greek Army in the Second World War and Greek Civil War and served also as Prime Minister, Papagos was founded in the 1950s for the housing, exclusively, of military personnel.
