Corfu, F, GR
This newly-built, neo-classical style villa benefits from a prime position in the village of Kontokali, just 8km north of Corfu Town. The property has been finished to the highest standards by its French architect/owner, and offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire an elegant island villa built in perfect harmony with its surroundings.
Consisting of 630 sq. metres of living area, the estate is entered via a large covered porch supported by graceful Greek columns. Paying homage to the classical architecture of ancient times, the property has been sensitively designed and built with refined materials such as Greek marble. The villa is laid out over three levels, with the centrepiece surely being the impressively spacious living area of 250 sqm, crowned with a chic mezzanine level and fringed with bay windows allowing residents to take full advantage of the property’s amazing views across the Corfiot countryside and Ionian Sea beyond. The ground floor also features a spacious cloakroom, washroom and separate WC, as well as a modern kitchen with solid oak cupboards and fully fitted electrical appliances.
Upstairs are two master bedrooms measuring a comfortable 20 sqm each, both with en-suite bathrooms and opening out onto large, 50 sqm solarium terraces with breathtaking views of the sea and mainland mountains. The villa also boasts a state-of-the-art fitness room, guest WC and stylish dressing room.
In addition, this gracious estate includes an independent guest apartment of 85 sqm, containing two bedrooms, bathroom, separate WC and fitted kitchen/ dining room. An additional 6,400 sqm of landscaped gardens filled with mature olive and fruit trees also reveals a stunning infinity pool with gazebo and patio area, perfect for summertime barbecues and entertaining. The grounds also provide a garage for 2 cars plus a machinery room, laundry room and workroom.
