VILLA ALEXINA, Perithia

Ref: 11426

Central North Corfu

850 000€

A beautifully renovated Venetian manor house, located in a small community of houses outside the village of Lower Perithia. Villa Alexina was obviously once the home of the local "lord of the manor" and is one of a very few such old Corfiot properties on the market at the present time.
It has been tastefully brought up to date by its present owners whilst cleverly retaining its original features.

4 Beds 3 Baths 2 Receptions 550 m² 1500 m2

Description

Villa Alexina is a very large, rambling manor house, with some spaces yet to be converted. It is a unique property with lots of potential for a variety of uses.

The present owners have carefully and lovingly restored and converted most of the main house and out-buildings and there is now a large family house with separate accommodation for guests.

The huge wrought iron gates at the entrance lead up stone steps to an enormous vine covered terrace, with original stone flagged floor. Entry to the main house is into the large kitchen and dining room; fitted with modern units but in keeping with the rest of the house. A large archway divides the room and at one end is a useful utility area and WC.

Stairs lead up to a cozy sitting room with an open fireplace and old wooden beams, and patio windows open onto the original 'bodzo', a small terrace with stone sills and steps leading down to the garden below.

The view from the bodzo is lovely, across the top of the grapevine covered terrace below and across and out to the sea view beyond.

Also on this level is a comfortable double bedroom with an en suite shower room. This too has its own lovely view, from a large balcony overlooking the garden and swimming pool at the other side of the house.

Another flight of wooden stairs leads up to two more bedrooms, one a twin room and the other a large double room with a pretty Juliet style balcony. A large family bathroom is shared by these two rooms.

In addition and adjoining to the main house is a separate building, once the original stables of the property. Here is a kitchen, a room currently used as a music room, and a double bedroom with an ensuite shower room. Outside the kitchen is a little covered terrace, just the right size for a table and chairs.

A further shady courtyard has orange trees, and the beautiful kidney shaped pool has plenty of space around for sunbathing.

In addition to all of this is a huge old building with an olive press. This has yet to be converted and is currently used for storage and as a workshop, but there would be enough space for a two bedroom self contained unit.
