This beautiful village mansion was originally built in the 1800s, as indicated by the dates carved into the stone arches that form the pedestrian front entrance and what was the side entrance to the original Olive Press, which now forms the adjacent property. It was extended in 1983 to include a third level and a vaulted roof structure. The property is steeped in the history of the village of Agii Douli, situated in North Corfu. The existing perimeter stone walls formed part of the original village defences. It is the second largest villa in the village and was completed renovated in 2002, by the current owners, to a very high specification using local timber and Corfiot metalwork design. It sits on a plot of 860 sq metres and the property is 427 sq metres.
The front of the property opens onto a walled courtyard, with electronic double gates and an arched pedestrian door opening into the village, church and local amenities. The courtyard is surrounded by trees on three sides and provides secure parking for four/five cars.
The rear of the property is also walled and tiered on three levels, with patios for outside dining and garden areas. A concrete base has been prepared in order to build a swimming pool if required. The flower borders have an irrigation system installed.
The whole property has six double bedrooms and a total of one main bathroom and four shower rooms. Each bedroom has either a veranda or balcony, which faces the rear of the property, giving 180-degree panoramic views over the countryside below and extending to the North coast and across the Corfu Straits to Albania with mountains rising to 2500m. It has large living areas, two fitted kitchens and has a dual zone oil fired, programmable, central heating/hot water system with radiators fitted throughout.
This property offers a terrific opportunity for use as either family accommodation or as a business prospect for holiday rental accommodation as the villa could be divided easily into two separate living areas. It has two front entrances and can be divided on all levels. The property could be adapted to run as a bijou hotel or guest house and is ideally situated for keen walkers or cyclists as there are trails and tracks leading from the village without the need to use the major roads.
Viewing is essential to be able to really appreciate the beauty of the house, the location, views and potential as a business opportunity.
The property is within the traditional village of Agii Douli (North Corfu) and is approximately 3 km away from the beach resort of Roda and only 5 km from the Acharavi where you can find all-year round amenities of shops, tavernas, supermarkets, banks, etc. Corfu Town and the airport is approximately 35 kms.
