A true landmark of high aesthetic, privacy and breathtaking vistas to the endless blue, nestled among Crete’s endless olive groves.
As the site has unobstructed views to the sea, the intention is to create a residence which maximises the visual connection to the sea. Along the whole villa, towards the north, stretches the open-air landscaped area, divided into two levels. In front of the common areas is the covered outdoor seating area and the swimming pool; canopies offer protection from sun during the summer.
The villa’s interior areas are L-shaped, literally embracing the outdoor area as a central point. It’s also taking the pool experience to a whole new level. Enjoy the panorama while seated at the specially designed outdoor lounges or catch the sun on the wooden deck.
The living areas are designed and developed along the view line, making full use of its potential. Large openings allow natural light to penetrate the interior, adding thermal efficiency during the winter period. The domination of earthy tones and its combination with contemporary materials highlight the form and the simplicity of the design.
The villa covers a total of 229 sqm, on a plot of 983 sqm. It enjoys an open plan kitchen with high-end finishes and a stylish bar-stand which becomes the focal point. This area connects seamlessly with the dining area and the living room. This level is also flanked by an en-suite bedroom, oriented towards east. A stairway links the two levels. Downstairs, there are two secluded bedrooms with fitted wardrobes and en-suite bathrooms as well as a storeroom. Both bedrooms lead out to a shared verandah with breathtaking views to the coastline of Platanias and the Mediterranean Sea.
A sleek wooden carport provides shelter for two cars and a nicely done pathway serves the accessibility to the villa.
