For sale apartment of 187 sqm in the town of Corfu. The apartment is situated on the second floor. It is part of a preserved building of Venetian Architecture in the Historical Centre of the old town of Corfu.
This building is estimated to have been built at least 450 years ago. The largest part of this building is the 2nd floor (the mansions most impressive quarters) which also has an attic.It has a northwest orientation, which in turn means that a natural ventilating system exists, thanks to the prevailing winds coming from the northwest.
The floor plan has trapezoid shape, with the longest side located in the back of the building where there is also a stone balcony 8 meters in length, which serves the two lounges of the family mansion.The building is built totally of stone, in the Venetian style and Architecture, where stones from the north village Sinies and granite were used.
The bricks which have been used for the supporting arches of the static weights are of the old and solid ones commonly used in Corfu in the past. The mixture used to keep the bricks together contains porcelain detritus in a large percentage, details which enable this building to have no expire date (metal is nowhere to be found as a substance), as the exact same building materials were used by the Venetians to construct both fortresses in Corfu (the Old and the New).
Furthermore, the lower parts of the windows have been constructed with stone and not with bricks as was common then to make things easier.
In the sitting room, the lounges are decorated with drawings which are estimated to be the work of the well known artist Bizani. The apartment also has imposing royal architectural elements, such as tall arches with heavy wedge shaped stones and crossover arches in the stair case, as well as the inner side of the entrance.
The view from the attic from the front side of the building includes the roofs of the neighboring buildings and a panoramic view of all the old town and the new fortress, where a balcony can be built with small columns of classic architecture on the perimeter, giving it a prime panoramic view.
