Leptos Estates offer eco-friendly ways for overseas investors to buy into the Greek property market

Proudly Cypriot property developers Leptos Estates have been building on the sun-filled island for 47 years, and haven’t been backward in looking to the Ancient Greeks for inspiration as to how to make their developments more energy efficient and kinder to the environment.

Underfloor heating was originally perfected by the Romans and the Greeks, and the modern version is just one of the eco-friendly features in Leptos Estates’ new homes, alongside passive solar heating, making them attractive to buyers with green fingers on their chequebooks.

“Underfloor heating is around 30% cheaper to run than traditional heating systems, and in the warm Mediterranean climate of Cyprus, effectively heats the largest homes without the need for back-up radiators,” explains Leptos Estates’ Marketing Director, Pantelis Leptos. “At planning stages of all our developments we assess the ecological impact and look at what steps we can take to reduce the carbon footprint of our homes. With changes in materials, and legislation, this is always an ongoing process and there have been major steps forward in our industry in the last year alone.”

Leptos Estates’ commitment to ecological issues doesn’t just relate to their profit margin, however, as the company has just announced that they’re going to plant one million trees during their own Green Festival Celebration, which is slated to take place in Yeroskipou, Paphos. Indeed, the company has already planted a million trees in Paphos, and employs over 35 dedicated horticulturists. Cripes, they’ve even published their own guide to flora and fauna, entitled the Wild Flowers of Kamares and Agios Neophytos!
