The Psacharopoulos Neoclassical house was built in Sifnos during the middle of the 19th century. The members of the family owned the Pan Hellenic Shipping Company (Panhellenique Navigation a Vapeur, Athens) that connected many of Europe's famous trading ports and often, their ships went from Tergeste to Odessos.

In order to build one of the first and unique Neoclassical houses found on the island, the family used the skills of both local and foreign workmen while the building materials that where needed for the house were transported on the ships that belonged to the family.

The house is located on the edge of Artemonas, a traditional and un-spoiled village that since the 1950's has been protected from further change by the Greek government. Whilst it's secluded and quiet, ensuring great privacy to the visitor, it also gives the opportunity to reach the 'tavernas' and 'kafeneia' (coffee shops) of the picturesque Artemonas, in less than a five-minute walk. In another ten minutes on foot or less than 1km by car is the center of the island, Apollonia, with bars, restaurants and small shops selling arts and crafts. The beaches of the island, such as Platis Yialos, Chrisopigi, Vathi and Faros, famous for their clear blue waters can also be reached in less than fifteen minutes by car or bus.
