Little Sugar: Zaharitsa 5

This 25-meter (269 square foot) apartment is on Zaharista and Drakou in the heart of Koukaki.  It is a 3-minute walk to the Sygrou-Fix metro and a 7-minute walk to the Acropolis metro.

The Tiny House Movement: The apartment, called “Little Sugar,” was renovated in 2016 following the principles of the Tiny House Movement.  Despite its tiny size, it can sleep up to four people as the attic space was converted to a loft space. The loft is accessed by a ladder that locks into the wall for use and hangs securely on the wall when not in use.

The apartment is on upper ground floor (same floor as the lobby but up a flight of stairs from the street). There is a graphic design studio below the apartment.

The space features a sunny studio with a secondary low-ceiling loft area.  The kitchen is tiny but well designed and cheerful.  It is ideal for a single person or a couple who doesn’t require much space.

What makes this apartment unique:

  • The location. This apartment has an unbeatable location, located in the heart of Koukaki (one street over from Veikou, one of the main Koukaki streets).  The neighborhood is a traditional Greek neighborhood that borders the Acropolis area. You have easy access to popular tourist sites, but the building and neighborhood offer a local feel.
  • The roof deck view. This apartment includes access to a communal roof deck with a great view of the Acropolis. Enjoy your morning coffee or evening wine with a stunning view of the Parthenon.
