Description

The villa was designed and built in 1986 by two brothers; an architect and a civil engineer. It takes great pride in the concept of “Outside In”, bringing the beauty of the natural outdoor scenery of Corfu within the internal design of the villa. The villa was built around an olive tree which forms an attractive centrepiece, around which twists a palatial marble stairway with railings with a “vine leaf” theme, accented with pot plants and an indoor vine.

The villa has been lovingly cared for and restored by its owners and is situated on just over 1 acre (4,100 sqm) of land. The property comprises 400 sqm which are split into three levels.  It consists of an upper driveway and parking area for up to 5 vehicles, and a lower driveway leading to the basement apartment, with parking for 2 vehicles.

The estate is fully landscaped, with seven palm trees, eighteen olive trees, six lemon trees, six orange trees, two fig trees, two pomegranate trees, eight grapevines, twelve cypress trees, eight bougainvillaea shrubs, and other ornamental plants chosen to attract butterflies and hummingbirds.

During April and May, the shrubs are alight with the glow of fireflies. A private borehole supplies water from Corfu’s main underground lake but the main water supply is also available if required.

Layout

A 77 sqm swimming pool in the centre of the 120 sqm of the sunbathing area is partly shaded by date palms and olive trees, while over 70% is in the open sun. The swimming pool was reconstructed in 2009 and is fully tiled with a new pump and filtration equipment. With six underwater floodlights, the pool may be used at any time of day or night.

The lower floor apartment is a luxury space that opens directly onto the pool area. It has a large lounge and diner area which was built in 2008 as part of a garage conversion. The apartment has two twin bedrooms, the front master bedroom opening via French windows onto the poolside. The rear bedroom is underground and is illuminated via a casement window opening to a greenhouse above. The hallway connecting the two bedrooms and kitchen with the dining area leads to a shared bathroom and laundry room. The windows on the apartment level are sealed double glazed units, finished in wood grain to match the upper windows.

The first floor includes four double bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities and fitted wardrobes. The master bedroom has two en-suite washrooms and a “walk-in” fitted wardrobe area. The second bedroom has a large covered balcony. The third bedroom has its own covered veranda with a kitchenette, table and chairs and a private garden with a pond. The area can be entered through its own pathway and lockable French windows. The fourth bedroom is adjacent to a large study with french windows, and is suitable for up to two people “working from home”. A spacious open plan atrium with an olive tree inter-connects all the first floor rooms.

The upper floor is accessible via its own driveway and lockable parking area and is the living and catering area for the main villa. Marble steps lead to the front door and hallway, with a cloakroom and washroom to the right and a library bookcase to the left. The lounge area seats twelve people comfortably. The expansive upper floor ceiling is open-timbered and panelled with hardwood. All upper windows and doors are in Iroko hardwood and windows are double-glazed with Georgian-effect internal bars, sandwiched between the glass panels. A modern kitchen was installed in 2010 and features marble worktops, industrial-size stainless double sink/ drainer, dishwasher, eye-level oven and microwave, gas hob, chest freezer, double door refrigerator with two sliding freezer drawers.

All appliances are included in the sale.
