This is a rare opportunity to purchase a fully restored mansion set in the north of the island, on a large plot of land, with stunning 180 degree sea views, views of the east coastline towards Corfu Town and beyond. To the rear are the unspoilt olive groves of Mount Pantokrator.
Constructed in 1730, this property was originally used as an olive press until 1850 when it was then purchased by the aristocratic Laskaris family for use as a holiday residence. It is a truly exceptional property that has been designated by the urban/municipality planning department as an example of Corfiot Heritage with unique architectural design.
In 1986 the property was completely renovated by the current owner with great attention to detail thereby retaining its natural beauty, charm and character. It is in itself a piece of art with lovely stone details, wooden floors and stepped terraces areas. This is a really wonderful restoration of a superb traditional Corfiot mansion.
With a total size of 474 sqm, the main building has a living space of 320 sqm which is set on two levels plus the attic area. It features 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, kitchen, a large living room and office. Outside there are paved areas, with open and covered spaces, ideal for al fresco dining.
The second building, originally used as the mansion stables, has 136.58 sqm of living space and has been lovingly renovated to create two separate apartments / guest houses as well as two storage areas. The first apartment has a spacious ground floor area with high ceilings and wooden mezzanine used as a bedroom, a kitchen, sitting room and fireplace. The second apartment has a bedroom with en suite bathroom and a kitchenette. The apartments share a terrace with a sitting area and BBQ.
The mansion is set on a plot of 11,750 sqm boasting a magnificent olive grove, an agricultural area perfect for growing organic crops, two large cisterns for the collection of rain water and its own well.
Nestled in the hillside above Agni Bay the property offers complete privacy yet it is just a 5 minute drive from the beaches of Yaliskari and Agni and within easy reach of all amenities.
The size of the property and its location (which is partly within the town planning zone), means that it would be possible to build more on the property - thereby creating further accommodation for use as a guest house or boutique hotel.
All in all, this is without doubt an exceptionally unique property, offering you the chance to purchase a wonderful piece of Corfiot history. Wonderful sea and countryside views and the prospect of extending the property make this a property and investment opportunity not to be missed.
