Kommeno is known for being the most exclusive area on the island and indeed, is one of the most sought-after areas in Greece. This plot of 3,650 sqm is one of a kind, and one of the last remaining plots on the island that is located so close to the coastline.
Just a 15-minute drive from the airport and Corfu Town with a large frontage onto a quiet road, the plot is situated just 40 metres from the sea and offers magnificent uninterrupted views of Kommeno Bay as well as the coastline, Gouvia Marina, and the sea towards Corfu Town and the fortress.
Its unique setting overlooking Kommeno Bay was the inspiration for the architect, who has designed this stunning villa that develops around the uninterrupted views sea. Spread over 3 levels, the masterplan layout consists of simple L-shaped geometric volumes, which along with the peripheral walls, engulf the ground floor plateau. The simplistic forms of the villa are combined with the use of local materials in earthy tones, such as natural stone and screed concrete, to gracefully integrate the new structure with its natural surroundings.
The pool area introduces the element of water to the site, creating a focal point. The surrounding landscape and the seating area that extends from the interior merge together, creating a unique user experience and an uninterrupted flow from the external areas to the interior area and vice versa.
The designs for the villa offer spacious living areas both inside and out. The external areas include generous seating areas, BBQ and large dining area as well as a stunning pool that is positioned to take advantage of the views. Inside, the ground floor level of 215.69 sqm comprises the dining, seating, and cooking facilities that are spread around the L-shaped layout and converge to inward meeting points. The visual connection with the external spaces is achieved through the generous use of glass surfaces.
To achieve uninterrupted visual connectivity of the interior with the plateau, the hovering first floor volume is supported by two main columns that have been disguised as an external fireplace, allowing for the use of transparent elements on the façade. The L-shaped compact shell of the upper level is accessed via a lift and offers 122.28 sqm of living space with 3 bedrooms -a master and two further doubles that each has its own bathroom with shower.
Accessed via the main lift, the lower level offers a further 308.38 sqm of space with 2 further guest bedrooms that each has its own bathroom with shower, generous storage areas, a laundry room, 2 water tanks, and desalination facilities.
With the excavation, plans and building permit already in place, an experienced and knowledgeable team of experts is able to organise the construction and management of this superb project, offering you total peace of mind from start to finish.
