The listed stone house was built in the 19th century by the owners family. The house was completely restored in 2006. The occupants of the house at the turn of the century were farmers who cultivated wheat and barley using oxen, and harvested carob and olive trees in the valley below. The women of the house spun and loomed silk, cured pig, kept fowl, harvested the crops and worked lace for the merchants of Lefkara. The villages bought wine from the mountain villages of Vavla and beyond.
