Villa The Rocks
This villa rocks!
This striking villa is designed to offer a comfortable and majestic life. An architectural gem will be built in southern Crete using natural materials such as stone, concrete, and carefully selected wood. This blend amplifies the profound beauty of the surrounding environment. Master-craftsmen will work on the finishing, ensuring modern elegance. Privacy, tranquillity, and abundance are concepts behind this design.
The villa creates a fluid transition of the indoor and outdoor spaces. The developer’s deep understanding of Crete’s environmental conditions and temperatures is apparent, as the villa is designed to be benefited from them.
On a hilltop plot of 4,233 sqm, this subterranean villa of 147 sqm offers plentiful living space. The developer playfully worked with an alteration of covered and uncovered areas throughout the villa. In the main villa, a glass facade has replaced the concrete wall, allowing for the breathtaking Cretan coast to be brought into the home. The living area of the villa is an open-plan area of roughly 60 sqm, including the kitchen/dining/living room. The living room together with the dining area is comfortably spread over almost 50 sqm. The kitchen has a large cooking island, which allows for space separation and practicality as it offers additional working space. Between the kitchen and the kitchen island is a door leading to another uncovered green area.
Next to the dining area is an atrium used as an outdoor dining room of almost 20 sqm. Opposite the atrium, a guest bathroom with a shower can be found. The master bedroom, apart from the sea-view and terrace access, has an en-suite bathroom with a bathtub, and a separated uncovered area with a jacuzzi and a built-in sofa. On the other side of the villa is the second bedroom, with yet another uncovered area serving as a private garden with a built-in sofa.
The total uncovered patio covers in total 43 sqm.
The 64 sqm infinity pool, with underwater lighting, is eye-capturing, feeling like a natural continuation from the ocean. The terrace, surrounding the villa from one side to the other, will have paved ceramic tiles. The same tiles will be used for the outdoor shower as well. The BBQ area will be fully be equipped with water and electrical supplies, and also a sink and cupboards.
The villa is designed to allow for year-round living. Throughout the walls, mass insulation will be applied to provide thermal comfort. Additionally, built-in A/C units will create a system to cool down the house (and heat it when necessary). Both installations are focused on energy efficiency and comfort. Similarly, the walls and roof will have humidity control technology (adobe and vapour-permeable). All the windows will be double glazed and the external doors will provide added thermal and sound insulation, security, and ventilation.
The finishing details of the villa are of top quality; carefully selected solid wood, granite worktops, and Italian porcelain tiles will be used throughout the house.
An alarm system and smoke detectors will be installed and the villa will be build following the strict anti-earthquake regulations.
Personal preferences and additional features can be discussed with the developer; think of under-floor heating, jacuzzi, and remote-control entrance gate.
The price of the villa is € 920,000 which includes the VAT.
The highest standard of luxurious comfort is guaranteed by a well-established and experienced developing company based in Rethymno. “Exclusivity” is the word that describes the developer’s works best as he focuses on the combination of artistic and traditional elements with modern architecture by using specially selected high-quality materials like wood, stone, marble, or glass and the latest technologies for insulation and cooling. We will gladly send you the developer’s portfolio if you wish.
The villa is designed under the standards of the Hellenic Touristic Organization (EOT) and will be fully suitable for holiday rental. Crete is the largest, best accessible island of Greece, which is always a few degrees warmer, and welcomes tourists from early spring to late autumn. The rental of this type of villa is therefore very popular. This way the villa will pay for itself and you will have the ultimate holiday destination, even in winter, because Crete has the best climate in the Mediterranean Sea.
Agios Pavlos is a small sea village, with deep green waters, on the south coast of Crete. Due to the slope of the land, the view is grand and wide. In about an hour and forty-five minutes drive, you’ll arrive at the airport of Heraklion, and in an hour and 10 minutes at the lively city of Rethymnon. Furthermore, you are under 1 hour away from the famous Palm Beach of Preveli.
