For Sale £395.000 - Villa
A simply stunning, unique, private estate location set in the mountains directly opposite the ancient Roman settlement of Cadianda with breathtaking views.
Owned by a known, international award winning film director, this villa has been extensively remodelled making it by far among one of the best villas in Uzumlu.
Nestled high up on Gayner Mountain (while only a 10-minute walk to the village with its quant restaurants and many bars and cafes and 20 minutes to numerous beaches) this incredible property boasts the best sunsets and views in the area.
The unique sunsets are unparalleled by any of the houses in the region, due to the 180 degree panoramic vista viewed from its unique, Cadianda-like pool terrace.
The front garden and pool provide a full, unrivalled, wide, none overlooked, uninterrupted landscape of the whole valley and distant mountain ranges.
Summer days and warm Autumn nights light up the sky with some of the most breathtaking views of the year!
And when the moon is hidden, prepare for a star-gazing experience like never before!
Built in 2004 as the show home of the estate, over £50,000 GBP has been spent on the house and gardens, mountain terrace and surrounding areas to make the property unique among those around it.
Situated at an altitude of almost 4,000 feet ASL, the villa sits high above the village and, on some Autumn/Winter days, even above the clouds as you watch them roll in.
In the Summer, the mistral blows between Mount Gaynor and the valley with a noon, oxygen-rich cool breeze, keeping the air cooler on very hot days.
In Winter, there may be the odd, rare, light dusting of snow (although we had not had as much snow for 15 years)
