    North Star

    North Star, located in the exclusive Athenian suburb of Ekali, is an imposing property designed by one of Greece’s most renowned architects.

    This elegant house is the epitome of privacy and seclusion: an aristocratic mansion surrounded by a beautifully matured pine trees and gardens create the ultimate oasis during long Greek summers

    Stepping into the entrance hall the visitor is welcomed into a grand space crowned with a sparkling chandelier, stunning chequerboard flooring and a sweeping staircase.

    Taking their cue from this grand space all rooms are equally sumptuous and elegant. The polished oak wood floors and velvet wallpaper in the living and dining room create a warm and cosy feel. The dining room can seat 16 people in comfort and style. High backed dining chairs with intricate tapestry coverings and two stunning chandeliers that light up the space, add a regal sense of grandeur.

    Wood panelling on the walls adds perspective and a cosy fireplace stands ready to warm the office on a cold winter’s day. The formal living room opens out to the pool and gardens. Next to it, a more casual living room featuring an imposing hand carved wooden ceiling and beautiful French doors leads out to the private gardens.

    A large wooden bar with bespoke tiled countertop makes for a wonderful focal point to gather with friends and family. Children can play happily in the playroom.

    The materials used are the finest, some quite scarce. The marble staircase in the foyer was originally in the offices of the newspaper “Proia” while the windows are of bijoute crystals. any of the door handles are gold plated and custom made by Briquet.

    An extra bedroom, a wine cellar, two housekeeping rooms and the garage are located in the spacious basement.

    The garden designed by Pietro Porcinai, one of the most outstanding Italian landscape architects of the twentieth century, features a heated swimming pool, a pool house with a sauna and lounge area, as well as a BBQ house.

    Its paths are paved in Italian-style as in the streets of old Rome while all the exterior walls of the house are made of handpicked stones from old Athenian houses.
