Luxury Villa Description
Villa Nora in Athens offers the ultimate in luxurious living. An estate of 6.570m² / 70.800 ft² set in supremely tranquil surroundings on the Saronic Gulf. Villa Nora stands at the edge of the peninsula.
It is serviced by a small harbor and jetty, a beach, terraces with stunning sea views, and magnificent gardens. The property is just 25km from the center of Athens and only a 15 minute drive from the new Athens international airport.
In Villa Nora, peace and privacy are combined with state-of-the-art communications and security. The main house, which has separate staff quarters, is furnished and equipped to the very highest standards, as are the two self-contained beach houses, the cottage, the separately housed office and business center, and the gym. The grounds include ornamental and kitchen gardens, and an orchard.
Villa Nora was first enlarged and furbished in 1968. Designed by the renowned Greek architect D. Pikionis, a unique setting was created. Between 2000 and 2002, a new and extensive renovation was undertaken. This not only returned the property to its original splendor, but added new features, such as the modern security and communications facilities. A recent renovation was undertaken in 2015 in order to guarantee that the property caters to even the most demanding standards.THE GROUNDS
There are a number of areas throughout the gardens specially designed for relaxing, entertaining and dining in the open air, by day or night. Villa Nora’s enchanting grounds include an ornamental garden, a rose garden, herb and kitchen gardens, and an orchard where pears, pomegranates and figs, grow alongside oranges, tangerines, lemons and olives.
The property has two open-air barbecue areas, the first next to a large (180 m/1.937 ft²) veranda with open-air kitchen facilities and refrigerators, the second built in a secluded courtyard by the Hydra and Fleves beach houses, again with open-air kitchen facilities and a 12-seater marble table. The two barbecue areas are entirely separate both visually and acoustically.
The property features secure and discreet access to the small harbor and jetty, which allows direct sea access for swimming and water sports, and the estate’s proximity to both Athens and the Islands.
