Mel & Bryan Densem

Bryan and Mel Densem left the UK in 1998, and went to spend life afloat on their beautiful 42 foot Vagabond yacht 'Pearl Of The Orient'. For ten years they lived aboard full time cruised and explored the Mediterranean from Gibraltar, to Turkey and finally back to mainland Greece where they came ashore.

They purchased a four acre olive grove estate in the beautiful SW Peloponnese and dedicated seven years of their lives to designing and building their dream home 'Bower House' a luxury villa with pool. Bryan's natural gift to work with wood was used to create bespoke and unique furniture from the olive trees in the land. It took several years to preserve and build the beautiful olive wood beds that grace the luxury suites within. The dining area boasts a substantial olive wood table topped with solid granite tiles and the chairs are also made entirely of olive wood by the owner whose creativity has made many furnishings throughout this beautiful home.

Overwhelmed with its stunning location, interior uniqueness and natural beauty they now wish to share that dream with a privileged and select few.

Pearl Of The Orient



"Bower House Originals" by Bryan Densem a self-taught woodturner:

A retired liveaboard sailor now residing within his 4-acre olive grove Bryan turned his hand to making the furniture in character with his new home. Once complete Bryan recognised, he needed a future interest on which he could focus. Something both challenging and rewarding.

Over a 5-year period Bryan developed the skill to produce magnificent pieces of woodcraft that make beautiful gifts, practical in use or just individual pieces of Art. Every piece is unique, created on site at Bower House, mostly using olive wood from our very own grove. Every piece cut is dried for at least one year prior to working.

In 2020 Bryan expanded his creativity to incorporate designs using resin and other woods such as Mulberry, Oak and Pine. The outcome is simply stunning!
There is always a display within the house and for those who live locally "open days" are available by appointment. Alternatively, you can view his work here.
