The house was built as a place of gathering for all the members of the Psacharopoulos family scattered around the world, offering its hospitality to the friends and colleagues of the Shipping Company.
Looking at the layout of the house, one can easily notice that its rooms can function either as separate or as combined living quarters.
Between the two wars, the house's plan as outlined above, allowed it to run as a small hotel, providing 'food and sleep'.

The house now belongs to the 6th generation of the family, whilst one of its last owners, Nikos Psacharopoulos, a director and manager of the Williamstown Theatre Festival in the USA, was a host to famous personalities.
