Terra Petra is located in a spectacular setting on the northern tip of Kea island with far reaching panoramic sea views and glorious crimson sunsets.
Offering privacy and the very best in family living, the villa has been designed in keeping with local traditions, not just in the style of architecture but also by incorporating local stone and wood. The combination of the stonework and the pale green wooden shutters on the windows create a wonderful island ambience.
The flagstone flooring and whitewashed stone walls bring a cool, rustic atmosphere to the interiors. The living room with double patio doors and windows looks out over scenic views of the Aegean sea, and an open, brick built fireplace brings a warm and inviting feel to the room.
Terra Petra embraces the natural beauty of the surroundings and enjoys some of the finest sunsets.
The same rustic design carries through to the kitchen where gray stone plinths contrast beautifully with the exposed stone walls and white wooden beams on the ceiling. Pale wooden cabinetry and countertops complete this beautiful whilst functional space.
Each of the four bedrooms open up to views of the sea. As you throw open the windows each room is immediately filled by a cool sea breeze.
Outside at this island paradise you will find outdoor areas perfect for enjoying at all hours. From an early morning swim through to the end of the day as the sun slowly sets over the horizon, the infinity pool is simply superb. Lounge areas, covered dining and an outdoor BBQ are all incorporated into the exterior layout, which is all surrounded by mediterranean style gardens.
The buyer of this property is eligible for the Greek Golden Visa Program.
Kea’s proximity to the Greek mainland, as well as its connection to the smaller port of Lavrio (rather than Pireaus), has left it unsullied by the heavy tourist developments of many of its compatriots. The ferry remains half empty throughout the summer months, allowing visitors to enjoy their approach in peace and quiet, whilst Ioulis, the main town, is a jumble of white and ochre houses piled onto the mountainside, and is pleasantly car-free. The few visitors to be found meandering its winding streets tend to be cosmopolitan Athenian weekenders, who come to eat well and relax on the island’s many untouched beaches.Kea’s landscape is unique amongst the Cycladic islands, being as it is blanketed in ancient oak forests. The island is known for its tasty honey – find the best at Anthea’s World, alongside local pasteli and organic prickly pears. Look out for the Kea Lion, carved from slate in the 6th Century BC and lounging in a valley beyond Ioulida.A highlight of the island is its rich scuba-diving opportunities, providing excellent visibility and rich marine life. The wreck of a 19th-century steamship is a particular favourite for recreational divers and the average sea temperatures of 20°-26°c help! Kea is also a hikers paradise, with a network of trails crisscrossing the island.Look out for the new One & Only Kea Island, currently being development by Kerzner and Dolphin Capital and sure to inject a luxury vibe to this rustic island.Show More
