Robb Report | This $7.5 Million Subterranean Villa in Greece Was Sculpted Into a Rocky HillsideRobb Report https://robbreport.com/shelter/homes-for-sale/cronus-greece-villa-1234753438/
This villa in Greece may look like it’s been plucked from the future, but it’s actually steeped in architectural tradition.
Sculpted within a rocky hillside on the island of Antiparos, the modern, disc-shaped abode, known as Cronus, was inspired by the circular walls that are built around lemon trees in the Mediterranean to protect them from the elements.
Designed by Athens-based DECA Architects, the picturesque residence has been partially embedded in the ground yet still offers sweeping views of the Aegean Sea and the surrounding rugged mountains. The $7.5 million (€7.5 million) island villa is also super secluded. Seriously, “the closest property at the moment is almost a kilometer away,” listing agent Despina Laou of Greece Sotheby’s International Realty told Mansion Global.
