What I can see

It is a symmetrical eclectic building which unfortunately today has been destroyed. It has impressive facades with arched and curved openings, ornate balconies, neoclassical and renaissance elements and elements of Central European folk architecture, such as openwork decorations, decorative beams and turreted ends with tiled roofs. The back sides of the building are simpler, with rectangular openings, whose lintels have a Π-shaped decoration. The house consists of a basement and two floors and has a very interesting floor plan.

What I can't see

It was probably designed by Frederic Charnot and is still the property of Iraklis Kehagias. A part of the building was inhabited until a few years ago, but has since been completely abandoned. The fire that destroyed it was probably intentional because the building was sealed and no homeless were living inside, so it is unlikely to have been caused by accident.
