What I can see

Eclectic buildings in Athens are few, and this is one of the best examples of this architecture, reminiscent of Parisian eclecticism. It consists of a ground floor and three floors. The ground floor differs from the superstructure (floors), as it has a more modest decoration, different colour and lines. The superstructure is tripartite, with the central part having two openings per floor, while the other parts have one opening per floor. The rich decoration on the lintels and corbels of the balconies is plant themed. Not all balconies have the same railings. Of particular value are the metal ones for their elaborate patterns.

What I can't see

The building was designed by Georgios Theodoridis. Initially, it belonged to Katerina Hatzianesti, wife of Eduard Law, who was a British diplomat and controller of the finances of Greece on behalf of the International Financial Control that had been imposed on Greece after the bankruptcy of 1893. Later, it became the property of the officer and courtier of King Paul, Dimitrios Levidis. Today, the building houses a restaurant and suites.
