Ulysses' Cove, Ithaca
ULYSSES' COVE, ITHACA
When thinking of Ithaca it is the journey that comes to mind and all the lifetime events which make it memorable. In the case of this estate, it is about the destination. It is not just the pure magnitude of its size (well over 1,000,000 square meters or 100 hectares) which makes the property stand out, but its beauty spread over a terrain including eight beaches with crystal clear blue, green and turquoise waters as well as numerous hills and plateaus covered with mature trees and vegetation. Nine structures were built in the 1960s with elegance, style and simplicity blending perfectly with the natural surroundings. These buildings measure 849 square meters in total and feature reception areas including a spacious living room with fireplace and a formal dining room, nine bedrooms with eight bathrooms, two kitchens, two staff rooms, and several auxiliary spaces which may be used according to the wishes of the new owners. Outdoor terraces and flower-filled gardens feature large and comfortable areas for al fresco dining, entertaining and relaxing. A 12-meter traditional Greek caique boat moored on a jetty is perfect for daytime excursions and is included with the property. This unique estate may be the ideal haven for a family seeking a private paradise, or it may be developed into an exclusive hotel or collection of holiday homes.
