A Piece Of Paradise For Sale in Astris, Thassos Island, Greece
Idyllic Seaside Plots With A Nearby Sandy Beach
Asking Price: 120,000 € - 180,000 € (Negotiable)
An exceptional opportunity to purchase an idyllic front line seaside building plot on the island of Thassos in the Northern Aegean.
These 4,000 square metre plots offer seclusion without remoteness. The plots are a short 10 minute walk from the nearby sandy beach 'Salonikios' which is much favoured by discerning locals. (See the 'NEARBY BEACHES' photograph below for location and view the link in 'Site' at the bottom of this advert.).
Visitors often comment that a wonderful sense of calm seems to emanate from the site. This aura of peace and tranquility feels elemental to the plots which are elevated approximately 30 metres above sea level providing a vista, framed in lush pines, across sparkling seas to Mount Athos on Halkidiki. The air is suffuse with the sweet smell of pine and refreshing ozone. Nothing can ever be built between the site and the sea.
This is a rare and unmissable opportunity to build a ‘nest’ in an area which embraces nature.
THE 'ICING ON THE CAKE’
The vendor WILL GIVE the purchaser of each of the 4,000 square metre plots, a quarter share of an additional 1,017 square metres situated below the main plot and directly next to the sea.
This gently sloping oasis sequestered within the rocky coastline provides the opportunity to develop an exclusive entertainment area with immediate direct access to reclusive bathing in crystal waters.
It could be a sophisticated dreamy sun-drenched seaside paradise with parasols, patios and decking directly next to the sparkling sea, and perhaps with an artificial beach. The reality of a “private beach” cannot exist in Greece. All beaches are designated as common land and you cannot legally stop anyone from walking on them or indeed erecting an umbrella. Your artificial beach would be 100% private. Many beaches are subject to strong winter storms which can adversely affect the profile of their sand. Your beach would not be subject to such adversity.
The options go as far as your imagination. The waters offer natural deep moorings, swimming, diving and fishing.
WHAT CAN BE BUILT
The land’s natural gentle topography minimizes the amount of terrestrial remodeling required for any building project and thus optimizes development costs.
A wonderful villa of up to 200 square metres (plus a basement the same size as the ground floor) can be built on a plot of 4,000 square metres.
Building costs would vary according to quality and finish but the vendor can offer these ball park figures. The building costs are approximately €800 to €1,200 per square metre. A typical 2 story 200 square metre villa with a 100 square metre basement could be constructed for some €300,000.
The plots are located on the southerly side of Thassos near the village of 'Astris' and enjoys the best climate on the island with nearby beaches of silky sand.
There is good access to the plots from the main road that encircles the island. This excellent coastal road facilitates easy access to all parts of the island linking traditional villages rich in history and archaeology, modern resorts, magnificent sandy beaches and peaceful coves.
Thassos is the northern-most Aegean island and is one of the least developed Greek islands conveniently located close to the International Airports of Kavala and Thessalonica. Surrounded by crystal blue waters it still retains its authentic traditional charm. Approaching the capital Limenas by ferry boat is captivating. The foreground of deep azure sea merges seamlessly into an amphitheatre of lush, pine covered mountains. It is often called the ‘Emerald Isle’ because of this lush vegetation. Thassos is a place of truly enchanting beauty with its own unique atmosphere prompting visitors to return year after year. Although there has been a significant increase in tourism from the nearby countries it has managed to avoid becoming a concrete jungle and retains its fascinating beauty and charm which makes it a magnificent holiday location.
Large modern air-conditioned ferry boats offer a fast frequent 35 minute service from the mainland port of Keramoti to the island’s capital, Limenas. Keramoti is a short 15 minute drive from Kavala’s International Airport.
Access to Thassos is always quick and easy.
The vendors hold certificates which confirm that the land is neither “forestry” nor of any archaeological interest and thus can be developed. The vendor holds clear and unequivocal title to the land.
The plot satisfies all the planning criteria for development and is located in an area designated for development. The location and topography of the site is a rare find on Thassos. Electricity runs along the northern boundary of the site. The mains water supply is on the main road which circles the island and is only some 400m away.
The vendors can recommend the services of trustworthy building engineers who could manage a development project from start to finish enabling the purchaser to have a “hands off” approach to realizing the benefits of this opportunity.
To further stimulate its economic recovery, the Greek state is offering real estate buyers residence visas. The new law allows real estate purchasers or lessees from outside the EU, who purchase or lease real estate investing an amount in excess of €250,000, to get a long term residence visa. Residence permits are valid for five years and are renewable providing that the purchaser/lessee still holds their interests in the property acquired or leased.
There are 4 plots of 4000 square metres available from €120,000 to €180,000 according to location within the site. Each plot would include a quarter share of the extra 1,017 square metres directly next to the sea.
Should you be interested in purchasing the whole 19,549 square metre site as one lot, please refer to our other advertisement on Viviun reference number AD-51653
