Situated approx. 35km north of Corfu Town, this beautiful property is located in the traditional village of Kavalouri, North Corfu, which is well known for its array of wonderful historical properties. Offering total privacy as well as peace and tranquility, it is also within easy reach of all amenities and the wonderful beaches that the north coast offers.
The Manor House is set within 11,270 sqm of land which features a wide variety of trees including olives, cypresses, oranges, and lemons that can all be seen from the house. The external living area is a delight – there are both covered and open areas with a paved courtyard and an external dining area with pergola. This area has a stunning cobbled floor in a bird design. All this is surrounded by an array of trees, flowers, and shrubs.
With 279 sqm of living space, the property currently comprises a main 3-bedroom Manor House plus a separate traditional guest house within the grounds that has also been fully restored. The main house is spread over two levels – the ground floor features a spacious hallway, a large kitchen with traditional flag-stone floor, a family bathroom, and a bedroom with ensuite bathroom. This level has doorways that lead out to the gardens and external living /seating and dining areas.
A staircase from the dining area stairs leads up to a living room which has access to a covered balcony that enjoys stunning views across the surrounding countryside to the coast. This level also features a master bedroom (with toilet and hand basin) and a further bedroom with its own bathroom.
The separate traditional 2-storey guest house is located just off the courtyard. Also fully renovated, it is being used by the current owner to house their art and book collection and features a galley that overlooks the lower level. However, this separate building could be easily converted to create an independent 2-bedroom house.
Other property features include an oil-fired boiler and central heating. The property has been sympathetically renovated to retain many of its traditional features, including an 18th century wall painting in one of the bedrooms and two 17th century carved limestone heads of Youth and Age on the outer pillars of the terrace.
The property as it is, is a wonderful historical family home, however, due to the size of the land and its part position within the village planning zone, there is also investment potential here too - perhaps build further to create additional accommodation and create a small boutique hotel to generate rental income.
