The delights of Villa Asteri are obvious from the minute you enter the grounds - beautifully tended grounds that lead right down to the sea and, in the evening, the setting sun in full view from the pool and most of the main rooms of the villa.
To the far left the famous clay rock formations of this part of the island are in sight and the roof tops of Sidari, which offers harbouring for boats, and cosmopolitan night life during the summer months.
Completed in 2009, the villa is built over two storeys. It offers 4 fully autonomous master bedrooms (sleeping 12 persons) with en-suite large bathrooms.
As you enter the ground floor, you will find a large sitting room combining both living and dining space. It is fully furnished with authentic "belle époque" antique pieces as well as modern comfortable sofas. An energy saving fireplace offers warmth for cooler evenings and during winter time. The sitting room opens to the grand veranda where you have direct access to the pool and an unobstructed breathtaking view to the Ionian Sea. The terrace is large enough to provide both sitting and dining facilities. The kitchen area, located to the side and rear of the living room is fully equipped with modern built-in electrical appliances. There is no shortage of storage space in this lovely house. Also on the ground floor there is a comfortable master bedroom with king size bed and en-suite bathroom.
With private external access, to the side of the villa, there is a self-contained studio, sleeping three people, ideal as an auxiliary guest house, granny flat or staff accommodation.
On the upper floor there are 2 master bedrooms with en-suite large bathrooms, equipped with king size beds plus divan(s) both enjoying stunning sea views, and with large balconies to the front overlooking the gardens and pool.
There are air conditioning/heating units throughout the house.
Other amenities include satellite TV, Wi-Fi internet, solar boiler facilities (all bedrooms plus kitchen) alarm system connected to central station, auxiliary refrigerators, BBQ built-in grill (outside) and each floor is independently centrally heated.
Furniture, fixtures and fittings are included in the sale price apart from a few personal items that the vendor will remove, making this villa ready for immediate occupation.
One of the best features of this villa is the sense of complete privacy that it provides. It is a gated estate that is fenced all the way around and planted with palm trees, cypresses, leylandii and other ornamental plants, a woodland forest leading down to the sea.
The driveway is paved and lit, with an electric gate, leading to an ample parking area that accommodates 4 vehicles. Lighted stone walkways lead to the house from the garden.
The large swimming pool comprises both the main pool area (1.0m - 2.80m depth) and a shallow customized section for children. (0.80 depth).
The property is simple and has low maintenance costs.
There is a provision of space (underneath the pool area) big enough for the construction of an all-purpose modular playground accommodating tennis, mini soccer, basketball and volleyball activities.
The new owner can easily gain direct access to a private beach, just in front of the villa, by constructing a low budget pathway.
The house is located in the foothills of the northern part of Corfu Island, famous for its tranquility, sandy beaches and lush vegetation and whilst the shops and facilities of Sidari are within easy reach to the west, there are numerous tiny sandy bays and traditional tavernas to the east for those who prefer a quieter holiday atmosphere.
Inland are some of the most picturesque villages in Corfu - Karoussades, Kavalouri and Peroulades. All your daily shopping needs are catered for in nearby shops offering fresh, locally produced fruit and vegetables, bread and cakes. There are also laundry facilities, pharmacies, medical centres and vets, banks and hardware stores.
Finally, another great asset of this property is a lease contract agreement with a major European tour operator, which can be extended for the period(s) the villa will be vacant.
Villa Asteri is located about 40 minutes from the city of Kerkyra.
Kerkyra is the capital city of the island of Corfu with significant historical background, Italian architecture, Mediterranean culture and more importantly, substantial infrastructure (i.e., general hospital, private clinics, international airport, harbour and the well-known Marina at Gouvia.)
