Seafront Estate in Northeast Corfu
At a Glance
Located on a headland in the sought after and exclusive North East of the island, this outstanding Estate is set on 23,000 sqm of land ensuring total privacy, peace and tranquility; yet being no more than a 5 to 10 minute drive from Kassiopi centre and harbour ensures that you are also conveniently close to all local amenities. It is quite simply a stunning property in an outstanding location.
The main iron entrance gate opens onto the Estate’s private road within the plot. This road passes through lush vegetation and beautiful cypress trees and leads to all parts of the property as well as the sea – and the property has approximately 200 metres of sea frontage. As well as having stunning views from all parts of the estate, the ‘sunset pavilion’ – a covered seating area – has been constructed on the highest point of the plot and is positioned to provide 360° views that include views to the north and the islands beyond.
The extensive mature gardens are simply wonderful, and within the plot you have an abundance of fruit trees – an orchard full of oranges, lemons, grapefruit and kumquats. In addition to the wonderful fruit trees, there are over 100 olive trees that produce Extra Virgin Olive oil.
Within the grounds that have its own irrigation systems, there are numerous paved walkways bordered by rosemary, blossoms and cypress trees and stone steps within the grounds lead down to a private swimming platform and jetty. The pool area, accessed via a stone pave pathway through the wonderful flowers and shrubs, is on the northern side of the main villa.
