The reasoning behind the design was for the house to fully compliment the view. The villa is set in a magical location on the edge of a cliff surrounded by outstanding natural beauty. It is situated meters away from the water’s edge in one acre of lush green land which extends to a secluded sandy beach. Because of the unique location there was the potential to create a truly exceptional house, it was very important that the interior design was just right.
In designing the interior of the villa everything was done to utilise the spectacular view.
The house has an “upside down” layout with the interior living space (lounge, dinning are, kitchen and wash room) on the top level. There are three bedrooms, family bathroom, shower room on the lower level. All bedrooms have sea views and open to an expansive lower balcony.
The living area is dominated by a huge window with sliding doors which open onto a large balcony. The concept was for the view to be the first thing that one would see upon entering the living area and to create the feeling of being at sea – permanently cruising. The interior decoration with its simple, elegant, minimal style does not distract the eye with busy patterns and colours, instead it frames the view and creates a relaxing environment.
The villa is situated on the edge of a cliff, with uninterrupted views of the sea. In designing the villa everything was done to utilise the spectacular views. There is a private footpath leading in to the golden sandy beach of Avythos just 50m away.
This villa is unique in Kefalonia. The setting and the architectural design work hand in hand to create a relaxing and calming environment. Created with great respect for the scenery, a mix of high quality materials and thoughtful design it is a property with understated elegance and simplicity.
