Unique Cliff-Top Home on Serifos Island
With stunning beaches and picturesque views of the Aegean Sea, Serifos is one of the most beautiful – yet least visited – of the Cycladic Islands. Despite plenty of redevelopment in the last few years, some still call it wild and inhospitable. However, many of these same people believe that its “roughness” is the reason they fell in loved with the island in the first place.
On the south of the island lies an area called Chomatovouni, which is closely located to the white sands of Kalo Ampeli beach – one of the most popular on the island. Here, among the rocky cliffs and steep slopes lies perhaps one of the most unique properties on Serifos – a 200 square meter home spread out across three different levels.
The property designed by , consists of a guest house and main house, with the latter comprising of three dorms. To access the home, guests will need to travel through a staircase that cuts through the building before leading to a beautiful terrace area. The home has panoramic views of the Kalo Ampeli, the sea and the nearby island of Garbis. A second terrace is located on the west side of the property and connects to the kitchen area. These terraces help to protect the home from the sun and any adverse weather brought about by living so close to the sea.
The guest house includes a kitchen, fireplace and its own bathroom – making it the perfect home-from-home for anyone who visits the property. The main house has an innovative design and has incorporated many unique design elements. Made from stone and mortar, the home reflects the color scheme of the rest of the natural landscape.
The exterior of the home uses the most common structural elements that can be found on the island, such as wood, stone and reeds, whilst inside white was chosen as the main color of the property, helping to create a fresh and clean look. Plenty of modern furniture and fixtures adjourn the walls and floors of this property, whilst guests are encouraged to walk barefoot throughout the home on a smooth industrial floor.
With its natural views and contemporary interior, this home is the ideal place to hide away from the world, allowing you to recharge your batteries away from the hustle and bustle of city living. This unique cliff-top property is the perfect place will enable you to visit the beach by day and spend time looking out to sea on the terrace at night.
