A Striking Modern Villa Tucked Into a Private Hillside on the Greek Island of Antiparos


Listing of the Day

Location: Antiparos, Cyclades, Greece

Price: €7.5 million (US$7.5 million)

This strikingly modern circular villa that’s tucked into a secluded hillside on the small Cyclades island of Antiparos offers privacy, a curved infinity pool that faces out to the Aegean Sea, an outdoor home theater and easy access to quiet beaches.

Known as Cronos, the stone and concrete home was designed by the Athens-based studio Deca Architecture and was recently completed, said listing agent Despina Laou of Greece Sotheby’s International Realty. 

The villa is tucked into a secluded hillside on the small Cyclades island of Antiparos.

Perched on a hilltop, Cronus is sited to enjoy both sunrise and sunset as well as mountain and sea views, she said.

 “Atmospheric lighting at night creates a cozy ambience enhanced by the beauty of the night sky,” she said.

The home is also fairly private. “The closest property at the moment is almost a kilometer away,” she said. “But even if more properties are constructed in the area, its elevated position and the 10,000 square meters of land surrounding the villa ensure its privacy.” 

Antiparos, which is only accessible by boat, is a “peaceful island that attracts those who are seeking privacy, safety and access to many private beaches,” Ms. Laou said. “It is also ideal for people that enjoy boating.”

Located next to Paros island, Antiparos is “one of those Greek islands that have managed to stay off the radar,” she said. Known for its mostly sandy beaches and crystal-clear waters, it is less crowded than Paros, “but it has a cosmopolitan character.”

The modern fully equipped kitchen follows the same curvature of the architecture.

The upper level of the villa holds the open-plan living spaces, which include a large living room and a modern kitchen that follows the same curvature of the architecture. A staircase in each room leads to the lower level where the six en-suite bedrooms are located.

While serving as a dramatic design feature, the elevated circular roof also brings shade to each of the outdoor spaces, including a large dining area. Other architectural features include a central courtyard open to the sky, a bamboo thatched ceiling, built-in window seats and bi-fold doors that connect the interior living spaces to the outdoor terraces.
