THE HOUSE AND IT'S HISTORY
Originally built in 1955 this structure in Chalandri has a long history. The ground floor of 41 Penteli Ave. was used as a single family home, kinder garden and in recent years a Greek taverna. In March 2012, when we first visited the site, the building complex, already had been abandoned for about 3 years and was in the process of being condemned and its owner looking for a contractor for demolition.
The Side patio
Within 3 1/2 months of our radical renovation. everything was rebuild except for the original mason stone walls which we uncovered under heavy cement plaster and restored.
Interior while renovated
Internally, the old kitchen was combined with the other rooms of the house, in the space which is now the current main hall of the restaurant, which is complemented by the atrium, a room (balcony) with windows that allow the eye to wander and the mind to travel in the adjacent green ravine of the area with the river – also known as the “ravine of Halandri”, as well as in the spacious and green garden of the restaurant.
