The mega luxurious property featured in Glass Onion: Knives Out Mystery has been listed in Zillow. We’ve taken this as an opportunity to showcase our very own luxurious homes.

Inspired by Glass Onion, we’re looking at luxurious Greek properties.

For anyone in the mood for fantasising about owning a property in Greece, Netflix’s Glass Onion: A Knives out Mystery is worth a watch (if you haven’t already seen it). The mystery flick follows on from the success of the 2019 film Knives Out with Daniel Craig reprising his role as master detective Benoit Blanc. The film features a host of other famous faces, including Janelle Monae, Kathryn Hahn, and Kate Hudson. Glass Onion was filmed on the island of Spetses, Attica, Greece. Not far from Athens, Spetses is an idyllic destination. As cars are restricted on the island, it gives the island a special atmosphere of calm, and it is the perfect spot to travel by horse-drawn cart. The island is also home to Amazone’s Villa 20 in Port Heli.

Glass Onion Greek Isle Commune: Multi-layered Paradise

Now, Villa 20 has been listed on Zillow as a paid advertisement by Netflix. So, all of us can have a pursue through the computer screen and imagine ourselves living the life of luxury like Daniel Craig. Listed as “Glass Onion Greek Isle Commune: Multi-layered Paradise” – this multi-layered paradise is, unfortunately, out of budget for most of us, at whooping $450,000,000.  Moreover, the property type is described as an “extravagant island commune” on a lot of 26 acres. In its overview, it promises “breath-taking panoramic views of the Aegean Sea and Peloponnese await you at this private island oasis” and “unparalleled luxury living”. The main residence is a steep 20 metres high. Furthermore, this extravagant island commune includes: seven private studio villas, six pools, a state-of-the-art gym, a garden, a massive dining area, a wine cellar, panoramic views of the ocean, and a private beach. It even has a museum-grade security system, so you’ll be extra safe. There’s a robotic butler too, but it doesn’t go into detail about just how useful or even friendly he’ll be. And of course, there’s a giant glass atrium – or, more fittingly, a glass onion.

It may be that a multi-layered paradise is out of reach but that a single-layer paradise is in budget. Over on our property portal, we have over 200 stunning homes for over a million. These properties would be just brilliant to move in to full-time, use for epic holidays, or rent out as a holiday home.
