Heraklion | Crete
A newly built retreat with great design and panoramic vistas.
This villa is a newly built modernist home set just off the bustling town of Heraklion and a 10min drive from the nearest beach. Sitting on a slope with sweeping sea-views, the 3 bedroom villa boasts a chic outdoor space that is fully equipped for outdoor living -there are pergola-shaded lounge and dining areas, an outdoor kitchen with BBQ, patios lined with lawn and a spectacular infinity pool, all facing the panorama. The house is built in two levels to maximise both the available space and the views. Accents of wood and stone are used to tone down the structure's bold geometry and connect it to its setting. The upper level opens to a comfortable veranda that seems to be floating over the sea.
Inside the house, the pattern of materials is repeated to reflect the exterior. The living areas are spacious and airy, dressed in muted tones and outfitted with designer furniture in modernist lines. Despite its clean-cut geometry and meticulous design, the interior feels laid-back and warm, proving that great design -when expertly executed- can be put in the service of comfort. Throughout the house, there are windows -sometimes wide, others narrow, depending on their orientation- that frame handsome views of the natural surroundings. The bedrooms are set on the upper level to offer more privacy. The wooden floorings, rich upholstery and designer pieces create an ambience that is at the same time comfortable and lavish.
