THE NEW YORK TIMES: Sugar Cubes on the Aegean Sea for $2 Million
By Marcelle Sussman Fischler
On the popular tourist island of Mykonos, the housing market eagerly awaits the return of foreign buyers.
A Modern Five-Bedroom House on Mykonos
$2.1 MILLION (1.9 MILLION EUROS)
This five-bedroom villa is nestled in a rocky hillside overlooking Kalo Livadi, one of the longest sandy beaches on Mykonos, the Greek island in the Aegean Sea.
The 2,600-square-foot house, a three-story version of the quintessential sugar-cube homes of the Cyclades Islands, was built in 2015 from whitewashed concrete with accents of local stone. Known as “Morgan,” it sits on half an acre in the southeastern part of the island.
The property was designed with a sense of fun and romance, said Savvas Savvaidis, president and chief executive of Greece Sotheby’s International Realty, which has the listing. “You have the luxury to enjoy outdoor living,” he said, with several separate entertainment and relaxation areas, from the curved infinity pool and cliffside hot tub to a screening area with comfy seating to a beach bar with a DJ booth and room to dance. The outdoor kitchen has a beer station and a barbecue grill.
