    Default An island retreat

    Christos Raftopoulos, 69, a fashion photographer who spent his career shooting in the world's style capitals, bought this site on the Greek island of Ithaca, where his father was born, in the mid-1970s. In 2002, he finally began building this 3,660-square-foot house.

    What are with those shoes he's got? Are they clogs? His feet look like one of the 7 dwarves...

    I do love the view but not the house!
