Unique Cliff-Top Home on Serifos Island
With stunning beaches and panoramic views of those Aegean Sea, Serifos is one of those most exquisite — yet least visited — of the Cycladic Islands. Despite lots of redevelopment in the past couple of decades, some still call it wild and inhospitable. However, several of these very same men and women feel that its “roughness” is why they fell in loved with the island in the first location.
On the south of the island lies an area named Chomatovouni, which is closely situated to the white sands of Kalo Ampeli beach — among the very popular on the island. Here, one of the rugged cliffs and steep slopes lies possibly among the most unique properties on Serifos — a 200 square meter house distribute over three unique levels.
The property designed by Sinas Architects, is made up of a guest house and main house, with the latter comprising three dorms. To access the house, guests will have to travel through a staircase which cuts through the building before contributing into a gorgeous terrace area. The house has panoramic views of the Kalo Ampeli, the sea and the neighboring island of Garbis. Another terrace is situated on the west side of the house and connects to the dining space. These terraces help protect the house from sunlight and any adverse weather caused by living so near the sea.
The guest house contains a kitchen, fireplace and its own bathroom — which makes it the ideal home-from-home for anybody who visits the house. The main house has an innovative design, and it has incorporated many unique design elements. Made from stone and mortar, the house reflects the colour scheme of the remaining natural landscape.
The exterior of the house uses the most common structural components which can be seen on the island, such as timber, rock and reeds, whilst inside white was selected as the primary colour of the house, helping to make a clean and fresh look. Tons of contemporary furniture and fittings adjourn the walls and flooring of the property, whilst guests are invited to walk barefoot through the house on a smooth industrial flooring.
With its natural perspectives and modern interior, this home is the perfect place to hide away from the world, enabling you to recharge your batteries away from the hustle and bustle of city living. This distinctive cliff-top property is the best place will let you see the shore by day and spend some time looking out to sea on the patio at night.
