Gialova Underground Project ref.407: Eco friendly earth-sheltered home, living area of 80 m², stunning sea views, walking distance 400 m to the beach and the shops, modern minimalist design.
This unique project earth-sheltered residence is located in the area of Gialova, in walking distance of 400m to the beautiful sandy beach, the seaside restaurants, bars and shops of the village. The residence is occupying an area of 80 m², to be placed inside a 1.000 m² plot on the Gialova hillside facing west with a fantastic view of Navarino bay. It is designed using reinforced concrete and native soft limestone, fitted with the most advanced insulation materials. Fulfilling the latest specifications on energy saving, through an innovative minimal design, it is large enough to accommodate a couple of people who have taken the decision to live in an alternative and exceptional place. With a thin green roof over a minimalist layout the house is perfectly blended with its surroundings in absolute harmony with the natural environment. The insulating earth keeps the house inviting and the living area is well exposed to benefit from cross breezes, particularly when they come across the sea...a cool oasis away from the hot midday sun. The full height glazed windows open up the house to the amazing views while also bringing natural light in. The house consists of an open plan living room with kitchen, 1 comfortable bedroom, 1 bathroom, 1 WC, a spacious terrace of 55 m² and outside parking area for 2 cars. The signature golf course “Navarino Bay” is only 2.5 km (3’ drive) away while it takes 10 minutes to drive to the golf course “Navarino Dunes” and the Luxurious resort Costa Navarino. Pylos, 10 minutes drive away, is a busy small town with port and extensive marina. It has a good range of shops, restaurants, cafes and banks built around a lovely central square, shaded by ancient plane trees. It also boasts an impressive castle. There are doctors and a small hospital/health centre with good facilities and reliable staff who provide prompt emergency service. It takes 50 minutes to drive to the International Airport (KLX) and the hospital of Kalamata which is the administrative capital of the area. Kalamata has a port, large yachting marina and motorway access to ATHENS. The centre of town has been the subject of major regeneration during the past few years and offers a wide range of shopping, eating and relaxing opportunities along its main boulevard. There is a greater variety of shops here offering designer goods and some internationally known stores.
