Breathtaking, magnificent, splendid, and impressive are adjectives used to describe marked aesthetic value. These and many other such words certainly suit the Pnoe estate on the Cycladic island of Andros. This property is nothing short of a dream carved into a legendary landscape.
Listed for $3.8 million, Pnoe is a powerful expression of Cycladic elegance set high on a hillside overlooking the blue Aegean Sea. The 0.94-acre waterfront estate features a marvelous three-level villa, finely landscaped grounds and gardens, and its own private beach.
The 4,532-square-foot main house is an architectural gem with six bedrooms and seven baths. On the ground level, there’s a stunning main living room, a second sitting/lounging area, and an open-plan kitchen with a breakfast area.
Upstairs, the villa has not one but two master bedrooms with en suite features and an office, each with a breathtaking view out over the sea. Downstairs on the lower level, there are two guest suites with en suite features and another complete kitchen. The villa also has a fitness room, a laundry, and cavernous closets and storage spaces.
Outside, there's an array of living/entertainment areas, including a fully equipped BBQ/kitchen, several lounge areas, and a large terrace for bigger gatherings. Midway between the villa and the private sandy beach with its crystal aquamarine backdrop, a private yoga area offers a perfect perspective for absorbing the energy of the Aegean. The property has a guesthouse, its own well, and a laundry list of other amenities you’d expect in such a luxurious estate.
Andros is one of the Cyclades islands closest to Athens. By ferry, it’s also connected to other islands in the chain, including Mykonos, Paros, Naxos, and Syros. Andros is most notable for its ancient history and its natural beauty, amazing beaches, and picturesque villages.
Pnoe is situated only a couple of minutes from the quaint village of Batsi and a short drive from the famous cosmopolitan maritime town of Chora.
