Villa in Korakiana,Central Corfu
At a Glance
With an elevated hilltop location between the villages of Ano and Kato Korakiana, and surrounded by lush vegetation, this superb property offers absolute privacy, peace and tranquility, yet is within easy reach of amenities and the sea - it is no more than a 10-minute drive to the local beaches, shops, and restaurants and just 15km from Corfu town and the airport. Its hillside location ensures the unique views that need to be seen to be believed – an unrivalled vista, not only of the surrounding countryside, but also views of the Corfu coastline from north to south and across the sea to Albania and the Greek mainland.
All set within a plot of 2,040 sqm, the villa boasts amazing fully landscaped gardens – stone walls and stairways, paved pathways, and areas laid to lawn all surround the wonderful external living areas that are ideal for entertaining, dining alfresco or just lazing in the sun or shade. The pièce de resistance must be the stunning infinity pool, positioned to take in the panoramic views.
The main villa offers spacious, comfortable living over two levels with an additional basement area of 70 sqm that could, if desired, be converted to create further living space - perhaps a gymnasium, games room or home cinema. The main ground floor has been designed to offer spacious open plan living and dining, and with its floor to ceiling glass openings as well as high beamed ceilings, the villa is light, bright, and airy and has a real homely feel. There is a beautifully finished, fully fitted and equipped kitchen and from all these areas you can enjoy the panoramic views. This level also features a large bedroom with access to a paved terrace, the gardens and pool.
Stairs from the living room lead to the upper level which has a stunning open 'mezzanine in style' reception area with seating that converts to a guest bedroom. There is a corner office that must have the best workplace views you have ever seen! This open area has high beamed ceilings with a mix of wooden and glass flooring that give views to down to the dining area below. Large patio doors from here lead out to a covered balcony – a fantastic spot to sit, relax and enjoy the vista. The upper level is also home to the master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom fitted with a whirlpool bathtub. Again, large patio doors lead out to the covered balcony area with the stunning views.
A sperate guest cottage within the grounds completes this outstanding property. Private and surrounded by wonderful trees with its own patio that has sea views, the cottage is open plan in its design with a fully fitted and equipped kitchen, seating and dining area, bedroom, and bathroom.
