The 135 m² lovely architect's house is situated just above a tranquil beach in an 1 acre plot between the port of Gavrio and the beautiful, vibrant village of Batsi. The house is surrounded by a green oasis of olive, eucalypt and fig trees, flowers and shrubs. A path offers the possibility to discover the plot and different spots that offer the opportunity to relax privately and enjoy the view from different angles.
There are 3 large verandas -2 of which are sheltered to enjoy at any weather- with breathtaking panoramic views of nearby islands of Kea and Kythnos , that you will be hard pressed to leave to walk to the beautiful beach of st Kyprianos, which is only 5-7 minutes walking distance.
The house has 3 bedrooms. Two of them have double queen size beds equipped with new comfortable high end mattresses and the third one has 2 single beds. On the upper floor one can relax in either of the 2 bedrooms and listen to the sea. There is also an alternative sleeping-relaxing area in the basement that sleeps 2 more people.
Decoration in the rooms shows the personal touch of the architect-owner. Wooden seilings, plain wooden furniture, stone floors, lights from the architect's collection "spinning tops". The natural colors of these materials make the color palette indoors as well as outdoors.
