The house is in the ‘Greek Riviera’, the area of Porto Heli and Spetses Island in the Peloponnese. The villa sits on an exquisite amphitheatrical plot, in the area of Kostoula, where the most prominent vacation houses of the region lye, enjoying the breathtaking unobtrusive views of the Aegean Sea and the famous Spetses canal. The access to the beautiful sandy and easily accessible beach of Kostoula is only 3 minutes away and the boat access to the neoclassical village of Spetses is just as easy.
The stone walled sloppy corner site of 2103.90 sq.m. looks direct south. The site is shaped in various stone clad levels, making the best use of this exclusive place and is extensive gardened with Mediterranean plants.

This is an architect’s house. Top quality and expensive materials have been used throughout the site. The initial house (upper and lower ground levels) was constructed in 2001 and was first inhabited in 2002. The tennis court, the guest’s house and the garage were all constructed in 2004.
The buildings are constructed using reinforced concrete structures, according to the Greek earthquake regulations. Particular attention has been paid to the structural details that are very crucial for the correct behavior of the houses in case of an earthquake. The walls are made of two layers of clay bricks with insulating material (10 cm) in the cavity, thus providing excellent insulation to the interior. The roofs are clad in byzantine roof tiles embedded in concrete mortar.
Extensive parts of the landscaping are formed in stone; the same applies for the retaining walls that form the various levels as well as for the perimeter walls that surround the property.
Doors, windows and shutters are made of wood (high quality African ‘sipo’ and ‘niagon’). All woodwork is painted. External pergolas are made of high quality chestnut wood from Mount Athos.
The interior floors are clad in dark beige marble. The bathrooms are clad in marble. The external floor areas are clad in marble or in stone slates.
The heat and cool air-conditioning system covers all the habitable areas of the house. Each room has its own A/C regulator.

Water filters are used to treat for the water used inside the house. Hot water is supplied by a gas boiler. There is a gas tank embedded under the garage port and supplied by a gas lorry.
The house is supplied with 230 V electricity. Controls of all the lights and functions are done through ‘Instabus’ control system. There is a touch screen controlling all the internal and external lights.
