The smart estate consists of a main house and a neighbouring guest villa. Although adjacent, the outdoor terraces are screened from each other while only the guest house pool is overlooked by the main house.
The Odysseus Estate is 30,000 square metres, and the houses are set in beautifully designed gardens, with natural-looking drifts of lavender, mature olive trees and silver leaved shrubs setting off the flowers.
The property was designed to have a village feel, with rooms and areas set slightly apart from each other and joined by pergola-covered walkways planted with wisteria and climbing shrubs. Each bedroom has its own entrance and French doors to the terrace, no two bedrooms are internally accessible. A vast kitchen occupies the middle block, a living room fills the entire upper floor of the left block and the right block contains the bedrooms. The terraces run all the way round, providing the unifying spaces for people to gather, meet, eat, and enjoy the marvellous views across the sea.
The specifications of this luxury Greek villa are extremely high, with individually controlled underfloor integral air-cooling and heating system, terrific bathrooms, and clever use of courtyards to flood the lower floors with a cool calm light. Plantings of bamboo in the courtyards add to the quiet, meditative feel of the spaces.
The unique feature of this house is the stunning 40m long infinity pool that runs along the entire length of the property, 1.5 m deep.
Master bedroom suite 1; Double bedroom with a bathroom suite of glass shower-cubicle and W/C cubicle, opening onto rear courtyard and path to the rest of the house. To the front of the suite is a partial wall, in front of which is a double bed facing the sea with a private terrace.
