Perched on the rim of the volcanic caldera of Santorini, at the westernmost tip of the town of Oia, with its whitewashed walls fronting cosy indoor spaces carved out of the volcanic rock, this home is an exemplar of local architecture.
Its dramatic and privileged ridgetop location and its expansive, sun-drenched veranda afford the owner an unrivalled view of the breathtaking Santorini scenery, the endless azure Aegean sea, and what is probably the most famous sunset on earth.
The interior has been upgraded with modern amenities and decorated tastefully to match the stark landscape. Its doors and windows, facing both sides of the ridge allow just enough of the bright summer sunlight and for natural ventilation and cooling, embodying centuries-old wisdom of local builders.
With a fascinating history spanning five millennia, Santorini is a world-class destination and this peerless property an unsurpassed way to enjoy it.
