The estate with a large beautiful garden, on the territory of 9400 sq.m., facing directly to the waters of the Mirabello Bay in Elounda on the north-eastern coast of Crete. The building is an architectural masterpiece made of stone and terracotta in shades of ocher, with echoes of Minoan influence and panoramic views of the blue expanses of the Aegean Sea.
At one time, the French architectural magazine, the estate was recognized as "one of the best achievements of modern time in the Mediterranean."
At the estate there is a long private coastline with a stone spacious area for a solarium and sunset.
Entering the garden from the main gate, a wide path from the stone slabs leads to the entrance to the residence, extending to two levels: 300 sq.m. and 500 sq.m. The estate will accommodate a minimum of 14 people, as well as 7 people in a guest house hidden in the depths of the garden.
House of 800 sq.m. makes an indelible impression at first sight, concealing a lot of amazing discoveries. Each wall is a "background" in the style of the paintings of the Siena school of Italy from the 13th to the 15th centuries.
The salon is dominated by an impressive indoor fountain: the water flows from the head of the marble lion, which is part of the marble sculpture directly from the famous Medici villa in Rome.
Wide glass doors lead out to a spacious 300-meter terrace surrounding the whole house. From here you can see panoramic views of the sky, the sea and the islands of the Mirabello Bay.
Around the fountain on the first floor there is a living room with a fireplace and a wooden library. The teak staircase leads to the lower floor. In addition, the so-called "Children's Tower" is divided into three levels and consists of six bedrooms with three bathrooms. Now these rooms are temporarily used as an archive.
Circularly from the upper main entrance, in the directions of the "3-ray star", go:
- Master bedroom with bathroom with bath, shower, separate toilet, massage area, with own access to the garden.
- Two dining rooms. Spacious and luxuriously decorated, with fully equipped kitchen, laundry, etc.
- Large paved terrace with perfect sea views and only 30 meters from it.
The jewel and adornment of this property is the gardens created and well maintained for more than 30 years with fruit and ornamental trees, flowers, including 150 olive trees, not to mention a huge carob tree of more than 3OO years old!
Guest house: the design was created as a workshop for artists - friends of the owners of the estate who visited it to gain strength and tranquility of these places. With a bathroom and a terrace ideally located in the shade of the old carob tree. The dining table for a la fresco meal, terracotta amphoras with camellias and gardenias, completes the scenic landscape. Over the years, the guest house was added a second
