On a prestigious corner plot The Mansion Apartment consists of the upper two floors of this neo-classical building just one block away from Alexandras Avenue in Corfu town.
The duplex apartment has its own impressive front door leading from a small paved courtyard. There is a sweeping flight of steps with the original iron railings leading up to the first floor.
Once through the door the first impression is one of size and space. There is a long, wide hallway with numerous doors leading off and a flight of wooden stairs to the second floor.
The rooms are enormous with high ceilings and most have two full height windows. With the furniture covered in dust sheets it is hard to decide the purpose of each of the rooms, but there are several reception rooms and bedrooms. The kitchen is very basic and small and so is the only bathroom.
We imagine that the upper floor (which is in bad condition and needs ceiling repairs) was originally used as a sort of servants quarters with a working kitchen and old nursery and some smaller bedrooms. There is the added charm of sloping ceilings in most of these upper rooms, and still plenty of light with windows on all sides.
It would be necessary to add new bathrooms and a good kitchen, and undertake repair work on the plastering, particularly in the attic. There is no central heating but each of the major rooms has its own beautiful traditional fireplace.
A double garage leads from the side road and backs onto the courtyard, providing the possibility to open a connection door for direct access.
Harking back to a bygone era, the property has huge potential either as a vast family home, conversion to separate apartments, or even a boutique hotel.
