Seafront real estate; a unique, graphic building, located in one of the most picturesque areas of Chania, in Tampakaria area, right on the sea, that benefits from a historical atmosphere around it, is now available for sale.
Elegance and charm are the hallmarks of this historic property! Own a piece of history. This is a must see!

This unique property is set within a plot of 391,5m² and is well arranged over three levels. It is in need of major renovation, but after undertaken, this special property, with its big sea and street facade (actually in 2 streets), can be transformed into a unique home full of character or a profitable business as it is indicated both for residential and commercial use.

Tampakaria started in the 70's and today only one tenth of the tanneries are still in business. The remains of the old tanneries are monuments of industrial archeology. Many of the old tanneries are today abandoned and ruined, some are preserved and have a different use, and some are still in business. The only thing that remained intact is their architecture. Adjusted to the natural landscape, the tanneries have a ground floor by the front street entrance and two or three floors by the seaside. They are stone-built and have a tiled roof. The tanneries, built in a row, characterize this district of unique architecture.

The ground floor hosts a shop and totals 98m².

An apartment is found on the first floor, which totals 83m² and consists of a living area, a spacious kitchen, two sizable bedrooms and a bathroom. There is a big balcony which enjoys superb sea vistas!

A penthouse is located on the second floor ( 102m²) which is accessed with an external staircase and consists of a second kitchen, an open plan reception area, two bedrooms and a bathroom. There is a large veranda, perfect for endless moments of relaxation right by the sea!
An amazing detail is that the penthouse can be accessed by a sideroad that leads directly to the sea! So, it looks like it's located on the ground floor as well!

The building was built in 1987. This 290m² building is only a breath away from the crystal sea!

You won't find anything to compare with the extreme privacy and many features this property offers!

Located above sea level, the building enjoys wonderful sea breezes and incredible sunsets.
The privileged residential location and its close proximity to the port, beach and sea is an advantage that should not be underestimated and a not insignificant element of the true value!

Most of the old building in the area have been abandoned today, but some have been renovated to serve as hotels, restaurants and shops.

A rare opportunity, now available in a competetive price!


Tampakaria is a district that developed on the east rocky area of Chania, far away from the city walls, which was known during the 19th century for its tanneries. However, there is evidence for the existence of tanneries in the area from the 18th century. The leather manufactures established in this area since the Egyptian period (1830-40), according to an official Arabic document.
The area was ideal for the establishment of tanneries: it was near enough the city to attract customers, but also far enough, in a location with abundant underground brackish waters, next to the sea (which was very useful for the first stage of the leather manufacturing).

The tanneries of Tampakaria flourished between the 1st and the 2nd World War. During the German occupation the tanneries were closed. Later, the new post-war mechanical equipment replaced the old methods and brought innovations in the leather industry that increased profits. An important amount of profits came from leather exportations. The decadence of
