The thoughtful emphasis on location by Green Tree Homes comes through clearly in their latest offering – Greenn Athens. The pristine project is ideal for home-seekers weary of noisy city centres, but still keen to live within striking distance of amenities found in metro cities. Such thoughtfulness is not surprising with Green Tree Homes and Ventures, considering the promoters' track record.

Moreover, Green Tree Homes endeavours to provide eco-friendly homes to customers at no extra cost.

Old-World Charm

Greenn Athens now augments the company's exemplary track record. The project name embodies some of the old-world charm of the ancient Greek city. One of the world's oldest cities, Athens has been renowned for its breathtaking architecture, comprising an eclectic mix of avant-garde design and culture. With its independent luxury villa community spread across 3.16 acres, Greenn Athens recreates just that nostalgic feel – right within the precincts of Chennai.

Green Athens

Hidden in a quiet corner of Chennai's Kelambakkam – nestled between the scenic East Coast Road (ECR) and the fast-developing Old Mahabalipuram Road – Greenn Athens offers home-seekers the best of both worlds, old as well as new, through the peaceful backwaters of ECR and the bustling industry of Chennai's IT valley. But that's not all, Greenn Athens is located close to the Muttukadu Lake. Which apart from being so pleasing to the eye, the lake is fast emerging as a hot tourist destination for water sports. Given its excellent location, both naturalists and adrenaline junkies will feel at home.

In this unmatched ambience, Greenn Athens presents an elegant canvas of 40 regal, pearl-white villas. Ensconced within a spacious 4,000–5,000 square feet, each of the 40 villas will have four bedrooms and three car parks, including an exclusive terrace, swimming pool and private elevator. Inspired by contemporary Greek architecture, Greenn Athens' villas display refreshing blue highlights, eye-catching Greek motifs and simple-yet-elegant lines. Blended harmoniously with the surroundings, the premium project recreates a Paradise-like image of Greece that enraptures every onlooker. As one walks through Greenn Athens, it becomes clear that there is so much to experience – across all four floors of each villa.

Enchanting Experiences

The magical experience starts to unfold the moment one enters the complex gates. On entering, one first notices that the lanes between villas are skillfully elevated to conceal the car park at the stilt level and provide two unique bridge-walks for leisurely strolls. Besides, the ample car parking space, the stilt level has a lap pool and deck for residents to relax within and to keep their bodies toned. From here, an in-house elevator carries residents to any floor they wish to visit including the beautifully landscaped terrace. Despite being indoors, the soothing sprays of green and open spaces sprinkled throughout the villa transform the indoor experience into a bright, airy, enchanting encounter.

The close attention to detail ensures each home is perfect with plenty of flourishes for residents to flaunt that could undoubtedly floor visitors. Some of these include: in-house passenger elevator, lap pool, landscaped gardens, home theatre, Jacuzzi in master bath, bridge-walks, imported marble flooring, teakwood doors and architraves, and imported modular kitchen, among other amenities.

With imported marble skirting in living rooms, rustic tiles on the balconies, laminated wooden flooring in bedrooms, granite, ceramic tiles and best-in-class kitchen and toilet fittings, Greenn Athens is a dream home which has come true. Furthermore, it assures guilt-free indulgence as the project's contribution to the ecology has already been taken care of. Other amenities include: a 90-cm electric chimney, four-burner cooking hob, microwave, and dishwasher. All the rooms are provided with split AC ducting and the entire complex is Wi-Fi enabled. With 100% power back-up, including air-conditioning, all residents are assured that the scorching Chennai heat will barely make its presence felt.

If customers don't wish to exercise their grey cells on the interiors, preferring to leave this to the experts, Green Tree can arrange to have their interiors done up by the super-skilled designers of a sister concern, Sumana Dinesh Associates.
