We’ve all had the thought – you know the one; you’re on vacation in a perfect place, the view is mesmerizing, the breeze brings the smell of flowers and sea, you go for a swim, and you think: “why can’t life be like this all the time?”
In a summer hotspot like the island of Mykonos, it might seem unlikely that there are still secluded places near the buzzing life in the main town of Hora to make yours.
Yet on the Aghios Lazaros peninsula, close to two of Mykonos’ most popular beaches, Psarou and Santa Marina, you could wake up in your own house, to a view of the Aegean Sea and the “light-giving” island of Delos, have breakfast in your terraced gardens and a morning swim in a heated overflow swimming pool, or jump straight into the sea from your private dock.
Built for privacy within a gated enclave, the Stargazer property, currently listed for sale on the Ploumis Sotiropoulos Real Estate website, fully furnished and ready to live in, sits on the hillside facing the sea to the west. Built from locally mined stone, the stylish 1,062 square meter home blends harmoniously with the natural environment.
Divided into two residences, the house has seven bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and private terraces, another three bedrooms for staff, an independent studio, a gym, saunas and steam rooms. Inside, beautiful wooden floors, banisters and beams contrast with traditionally Cycladic white walls and ceilings. Other details echo the local architecture in Hora, while decorative arches and a dramatic domed ceiling make this home completely unique.
For entertaining, the outdoor spaces have everything; the 10,696 square meter grounds feature several covered dining terraces, a large lounge area perfect for cocktail gatherings and watching the sunset, two heated overflow swimming pools, a generous outdoor kitchen area with a barbecue, pool area with lounge chairs, parking, and a path leading down to the private, beautiful wooden dock.
In short, while this home is situated near all the fine dining options, shopping and nightlife on Mykonos, you may never want to leave. After all, you could make vacations last forever here.
