This summer vacation home is located on Mykonos Island, in Greece. Situated in Kanalia an exclusive residential and private part of the island, it is a 2,153 square feet (200 sqm) gem that as soon as you step on the premises you feel that you are part of a more unique, boutique hotel like lifestyle. The structure has been designed around the 1 hectare site to retain, respect and compliment the surrounding architecture. Typical circular orders, wooden shutters, canopies with fluid fabrics are just few of the elements that make this house the summer unique.
The exterior pool, dining area and the multiple living spaces greet you upon arrival. The most important element from all of this is grasped in your sight as soon as you turn your back to the residence and look out to the breathtaking view which travels you as far as your eyes can see. One of the many built in lounge areas designed at the front of the site invites one to relax and take in all of the beautiful scenery that surrounds the property.
Within the comfortable, generous and stylish interiors lays the ultimate summer experience. Upon entrance from the glorious glazed detail entrance door lays the primary living room. A space of natural brightness and comfort, which is cleverly, arranged around the built in fireplace for those winter romantic weekends or the sweet September rains. This space is both casual and formal fitting for all occasions. Via
The dining area is dominant and majestic with sculptural light pendants and over scaled mirrors of great wooden detailing. The exposed stone walls which are present throughout the interior brings the outside in and never lets you forget were you are. The second living room has French balcony doors that invite you to take one step and be by the pool, or sit by the built in sofa with the doors open admiring the views.
The open plan kitchen is generous and spacious with another table sitting area and cozy fireplace in the rear stone cave space. In general this residence has been designed to be able to accommodate multi purpose uses.
The upper level consists of the 4 ensuite main bedrooms (leaving one more bedroom on the ground floor). The bedrooms are decorated with a more transitional bespoke element. Striped fabric curtains with hanging crystal wall sconces and wooden headboards. All bedrooms have details such as glazed cupboards, built in stepped upper beds or a fabric sky ceiling on top of the beds dropped around at night. These fixtures make each one unique and one of its kind.
Another flexible and multi purpose design element of this house is the additional independent guest house (images above), situated at the front part of the site. This detached sole guest house is the perfect space to feel independent as a guest. With a cozy living room kitchenette, bathroom and bedroom the owner is definitely a host that knows about entertaining and keeping the guests in the outmost high standard.
