"Sir Patrick Leigh Fermor, OBE, met Balasha Cantacuzene, a Romanian
Phanariote noblewoman, with whom he fell in love. They shared an old
watermill, looking out towards Poros, where she painted and he wrote".*
...Sir Fermor's old watermill with its memories, was sadly abandoned to
nature and is now in need of a loving and caring new owner, to continue
the connection with the world of Fine Arts, Literature and Painting by
restoring and bringing back to its former glory this prominent landmark.
Magnificent panoramic views and tranquillity are enjoyed from this
remote and traditional Greek island property which is buried deep in
history and citrus aromas, at Lemonodasos.
The property had in its glorious past history, accommodated famous
celebrities such as Sir Patrick Leigh Fermor* as mentioned in Wikipedia.
The existing 130m² stone-built dwellings, originally constructed about
100 years ago in a slightly elevated 4100m², gently sloping lemon grove
of 120 trees, can now be increased to 200m²; much more for authorised
The property includes wood-burning ovens, a registered water-well, an
independent water reservoir and a waterfall which was utilised to turn
the flour-grinding stones, in times gone-by; also, a natural cave with a
tunnel, carved inside the hillside.
Sadly, due to the absentee vendors other interests, the watermill and
its outbuildings now require complete renovation but at a modest cost
of approximately €30k.
Direct access to the sea is about 800m, easily reached by footpath.
Access to the property itself is gained along a good, hard-surfaced road.
The property is connected to electricity, public mains water supply
and land-line telephone.
