Santorini Heights consists of two separate buildings, the main complex of 4 suites (Garden, Herb, Vine & Cactus) and the rest of the ground-lower basement area and the Summit Villa, which is a separate entity within the same estate. Designed by local studio Kapsimalis Architects, this striking, 1,076-square-foot abode gracefully blends in with its peaceful landscape, and also embraces views of the Aegean Sea below.
The property is to be sold not only as a business, but as a prime estate-realty to be used as a main residency. One can carry out working it as a business or convert the main building as one private villa or two villas (plus the Summit of course which is the 3rd one). A conversion plan for the main building has already been prepared, quoted and the owners can undertake the conversion upon buyer’s request, with the same taste and philosophy as the rest of the project.
The building complex is located on the highest point of Santorini, facing to the southwest and offering extensive views to the Aegean Sea and to the volcanic landscape. The design took into consideration the fact that the site belongs to a highly protected ‘’Natura’’ zone, an area in the picturesque village of Pyrgos. In this context, the house is integrated into the steep slope of the mountain and uses the materials and the color palette of its surrounding for the construction of the exterior spaces. The rock of the mountain was excavated, the building was placed on the spot and the stones from the rock, after processing, were used as a main material. The landscape is formed by a variety of gardens, courtyards in different levels, retaining walls, an outdoor pool and sunken lounges.
Each suite accommodates up to three guests, features either an outdoor heated infinity swimming pool (superior suite) or heated plunge pool, private sea view balcony, fully equipped kitchen (refrigerator, freezer, microwave oven and coffee maker), living room, dining room, king size bed, walk-in closet, access to flower and herb gardens, private parking, wi-fi, satellite access for smart flat screen TV, blue tooth speaker, remote controlled ceiling fan, and individually controlled air-conditioning.
