At a Glance
Situated in an elevated position in the hills above Kassiopi, this stunning property offers total privacy, peace and tranquility, yet is just a 5 minute drive from all amenities, the beach and Kassiopi and its pretty harbour.
Set within 19,000 sqm of land, the gardens are beautifully landscaped with many stone paved terraces, a plethora of wonderful trees and shrubs and a stunning pool with sun terraces positioned to take advantage of the beautiful views. Its location and sheer size of beautiful exterior seating areas makes this the perfect location for dining alfresco and entertaining, all whilst enjoying the tranquility of the area and the amazing views.
The villa offers 560 sqm of living space over two levels. Constructed from stone, the walls are ½ metre thick and all external windows and doors are framed with traditional stone lintels. The roof has been constructed using large wooden beams and completed with old Venetian roof tiles. Internally, all the bathrooms are tiled with Italian marble, the bedrooms have authentic cypress wood flooring and the internal doors and kitchen are all hand-crafted. All in all, the attention to architectural detail as well as the quality of the materials used is second to none.
Space, and more space, is the theme of this property throughout – the ground floor comprises a large living room with a high wooden beamed ceiling and feature fireplace, a separate formal dining area that leads to the spacious, modern fully fitted kitchen. The kitchen also has plenty of room for informal dining and outside, there is a covered sitting area set under beautiful stone arches. There is a study, a good sized store room, boiler room and a guest WC. This whole ground level is light, bright and airy with numerous patio doors from all main rooms that lead out to either the terraces, gardens and pool.
A wooden staircase leads to first floor where there are 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, four of which have access out to balconies and the stunning views.
The property was once used as a farm and features such as the sheep shed, stone well and paved wheat threshing area have been restored and sit within the grounds of the house. In addition to these, there is also the option for additional building work, as additional planning has been gained for a guest-house
