Stunning Villa near Heraklion
A minimal and modern 350 sqm villa on a 3700 sqm plot in the Stavromeno area in Heraklion, overlooking the azure sea and just three minutes away by car from the pristine Arena beach. The plot is on the top of a hill overlooking the bay of Arena and offering a bird’s eye view of Kokkini Hani and beyond. The view of the sunrise and the sunset from the property is truly mesmerizing.
Built with a seamless combination of stone, wood and glass, in 2022, the villa features floor-to-ceiling, double-glazed glass panel windows and doors and is, thus, bathed in sunlight. It offers a total of four double bedrooms, each with its own en-suite bathroom, as well as an open-plan living/dining room and kitchen, a sauna, and a playroom/gym.
The entrance opens to a small foyer with floor-to-ceiling wooden wardrobes which leads to the living room, separated by a gas-floating fireplace. The kitchen is fully equipped and includes an island breakfast bar and dining area with a dining table for 8 persons. The large glass panel doors offer exquisite views of the sea and give full access to the pool area. Two of a total of four bedrooms are located to the left of the entrance: the master bedroom, with en-suite marble-tiled bathroom fitted with a rainfall shower and soaking bathtub, while the bedroom has floor-to-ceiling windows with a sea view, and spacious wardrobes. The second bedroom also has large windows offering fascinating vistas and an en-suite bathroom with a rainfall shower.
The lower floor is occupied by the studio/bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, while the groundwork has been laid for the future connection of a small kitchenette. A fourth bedroom, again with an en-suite bathroom, is located just opposite. The lower floor also features a sauna room, a playroom, a laundry room, a WC, and a machine/boiler room.
The villa is fitted with underfloor heating and the heating and cooling system uses thermal pumps fitted with smart features. Cameras, an alarm system and automatic lighting using sensors cater to your security.
The outdoor area of the villa features a wooden deck and a 56 sqm heated pool with depths varying from 1.50 to 2.40 m. There is also an outdoor kitchen/BBQ and a large pergola with a dining table for 10 guests. The landscaped plot boasts a small vineyard and herb garden. The villa is encircled by a small driveway for ease of access and private parking for 6 vehicles.
