It is built on a plot of 2140 sqms, is developed on two floors and features a heated pool with hydromassage and an unbelievable outdoor area, with aligned trees (plus an ancient, thousand year old olive tree and a statement-lemon tree), pathways and imposing columns.
On the entrance floor, there is the living room/dining room area, a kitchen that opens to the patio, 3 bedrooms and an office room. The living room features a fireplace, while the whole floor is surrounded by windows and glass doors, has wooden floors of high quality and of course (as on the lower floor, as well) premium, elegant furnishing.
On the lower floor, 2 more bedrooms can be found and also storage and utility spaces.
Outdoors, there are various sitting & dining areas, under trees and in complete privacy. The most interesting feature of the property is its fully concrete construction (no bricks were used) and also, its character that is influenced by minimalism, Japanese architecture and Bauhaus. Thus, simplicity and balance is achieved. It is worth mentioning that the villa was shortlisted for the Mies van der Rohe Awards in 2009.
The villa is totally private, thanks to its design, positioning, trees and boundary walls. The neighbourhood is really quiet, yet right outside the city. In other words, the spot is ideal for a year round residence, but also for rental purposes. The property has been operating as a rental holiday home and has been having great success.
