Traditional Cycladic architecture was intended to protect against the natural elements -the strong winds, the scorching rays of the Greek sun and the islands’ rocky terrain. This usually translated into compact houses with small windows and rooms. In the case of the McQueen estate, however, the island’s residential vernacular has been given the gift of space.
Situated close to the bustling beach of Super Paradise and only 7km from the town of Mykonos, this residence has been designed with one thing in mind: to spoil its guests. The outdoor areas have been fitted with multi-level terraces that allow for spectacular sea-views. Different lounging spots are created to satisfy different moods: have some alone time watching the stars, have a midday nap under the shade of a pergola, have some wine with friends or catch some sun by the swimming pool. The dining area is equipped with a BBQ and a bar.
The interior is bright and spacious, featuring vast windows that open the rooms to the sea vistas.
The living areas are classic and sophisticated, conveying an air of understated luxury. The uniform white palette is interrupted by subtle touches such as the handmade rugs or a few designer objects. The furnishings are comfortable and the ornamentation minimal, to create a comforting ambience. The estate is divided into two independent houses, one with 12 rooms and one with 5, that can be rented either together or separately.
