Fountana | Paxos
Nestled amid a lush pine tree forest that rolls all the way down to the sea, this villa is a five bedroom retreat positioned to enjoy a stunning panorama of the coastline. The architect's modernist approach to the traditional island home translates into a solemn structure that creates a striking contrast with its exuberant surroundings. The house, a stone slab pierced by openings that bathe the interiors with sunlight, features multi-leveled terraces equipped with lounging and dining arrangements. The veranda that wraps around the house leads down to a fabulous decked terrace and the swimming pool area. A stone-paved path winds its way through the trees, ending up to a small pebbled cove with crystal clear waters.
The interior pays tribute to light and space. The main living area includes a lounge, dining area and kitchen, all styled in the same theme to create a cohesive look. A large wall is almost replaced by floor-length windows that offer breathtaking views to the sea. The décor incorporates a muted color palette and materials that lend to the natural look. Abstract, post-modern art pieces are displayed throughout, adding to the house's modernist feel and creating. This integration of modernism that defines the residence creates a sober backdrop that accentuates the striking landscape views that are visible throughout the house.
The five bedrooms are quite modest in size, yet the available space has been thoughtfully utilized to create a sense of openness. The rooms have high ceilings and large full-length windows with views that fully compensate for the lack of space. Great attention has also been given to details such as the dark wood flooring, rich upholstery and the materials used in the bathrooms. One of the bedrooms is fitted with a mezzanine-style bunk-bed which is perfect for children. The villa also offers a comfortable office, as well as a tennis-court.
