KALIGAS MANOR HOUSE, Kavalouri

North West Corfu

2 900 000€

This is a rare opportunity indeed - a fully restored 16th Century Manor House in a peaceful village in the north of the island, in a large plot of land, with views across the olive groves and over to the north coast. The property has scope for additional development as a unique boutique hotel.

3 Bedrooms 3 Bathrooms 2 Receptions 279 m²

Description

This is a gorgeous restoration of a traditional Corfiot mansion. The original features have been retained, yet modern facilties installed, so that the house is a unique blend of modern comfort in a classic style.

The ground floor has a large hallway, vast vaulted dining room,big kitchen with stone flagged floor, family bathroom, and an en-suite bedroom. Huge arched wooden doors lead out into the garden and terrace with pergola. The long terrace features two 17th century carved limestone heads of Youth and Age on its outer pillars. The pebbled floor has an inset bird design.

From the dining area stairs lead up to a living room, the master bedroom with toilet and sink and a further bedroom with its own bathroom. One of the bedrooms has an 18th century wall painting. Doors lead from the living room out onto a covered veranda with wonderful views across the countryside and over to the coast.

Outside the house is a paved courtyard, with open and covered spaces, including an al fresco dining area. Off the courtyard is a completely separate 2 floor traditional property, also restored, currently designed with a gallery looking over the lower floor, but easily convertable to a 2 bedroom house. The present owner used this building for her extensive collection of books and artwork.

The house is fully-centrally heated (with the exception of the hallway) with an oil-fired boiler and is connected the mains water system.

The house looks over its own 11.270 m2 of land with orange, lemon, olive and cypress trees. The size of the property, and its location partly within the village planning zone means that it would be possible to build more on the property - guest houses to provide accommodation for a boutique hotel would be a possibility. However, the present size of the house means it is a gorgeous period family home, which could also be an excellent rental investment opportunity.
