Situated in the area of Potamos, less than a 10-minute drive from Corfu Town and the airport, this superb villa is in a great spot and is ideally located not only for all year round living, but as a holiday residence. There is excellent access to all amenities and facilities – it is just 4km from Gouvia Marina as well as being within easy reach of all east and west coast beaches.
With good and easy access via two suburban roads, the property is set within a plot of 2.080sq.m fully landscaped garden, all surrounded by a variety of trees, including some cypress trees that are over 400 years old. The stunning gardens feature a large variety of trees, shrubs, and plants including 2 coconut palms. External living here is just out of this world – there is a bespoke sunken, windproof seating area with custom made cushions, a large BBQ seating / dining area with gas BBQ, Jacuzzi with decked surround for 7 people and an external hot water shower. The beautiful private pool of 50 sqm with thermal heat pump, can be used all year round.
The villa currently offers 249 sqm of living space over two levels plus 120sq.m basement as utility space, with the ability to construct a further 200 sqm livig space if desired. The ground floor level is open plan in style with a living room, dining room, and kitchen with large glass opening all around giving access to the gardens, pool, and BBQ area.
Fully furnished, the living room comes complete with a smart, remote controlled, top of the range Planica branded fireplace and an 85” Samsung satellite TV. The super modern kitchen features all appliances – an American style fridge, oven, gas, and ceramic hob, built-in microwave, dishwasher, wine cooler, granite sink with shower head and an island with 5 stools. This ground floor level also features a bathroom, 3 storage rooms and a laundry room complete with 2 washing machines, a dryer and steam ironing kit.
Internal stairs lead to the 4 bedrooms on the upper level – there is a spacious master suite with bedroom, ensuite bathroom (including a jetted hot tub) and its own office space. 3 further bedrooms share a bathroom with shower.
Finished to an exceptionally high level, Italian granite tile has been used throughout, as well as a mix of marble, stone, glass, porcelain, and velvet. The villa features modern, smart technology, meaning that the whole home, including the lights, electronic gate, Sonos sound system, cameras, heating, cooling, boilers, fireplace can all be controlled via a mobile app.
Other property features include the newest technology floor heating and fan coil (FCU) cooling system throughout, internet connection to the Tesla satellite Starlink as well as a standard line via the national ‘Cosmote’ operator. There is LED lighting inside and out and all bathrooms feature stone washbasins and electronic smart bidets and smart no-touch bins.
One of the few totally autonomous properties currently in the Ionian islands, the external areas were designed and built over large water tanks that collect rainwater – there is a chamber that supplies fresh water to the villa and a further emergency reserve tank.
The property holds a Class A Energy certificate and the electricity is currently connected to the largest electricity supplier (DEI) and awaiting a permit with them for a net metering system. This will then allow the collection of solar energy and the resale of that back to DEI, resulting in a zero cost for electricity and potentially a small monthly profit.
