Recent positive publicity for the Rou Estate which occupies most of this little village has focused attention on this otherwise remote cluster of stone cottages several kilometres above the up-market harbours of Agni, Kalami and Aghios Stefanos on the north-east coast of Corfu.
Stone Chimney cottage is in need of total renovation - but has the potential to become as beautiful as its newly renovated neighbour. Planning permission would almost certainly be granted for a second storey should the new owner choose to extend upwards, and there is space for a pool, and courtyard garden with parking to one side, whilst between the house and the amazing view over the sea to Albania, there is a large, level garden area. This could be used either to ensure privacy, or to build a second house for resale, perhaps.
Rou has to be seen to be appreciated. The stone houses have been attractively restored to way beyond their former glory, re-using old materials, with low-key Corfiot colour schemes and discreet plunge pools positioned out of the public gaze.
This building has the basic ingredients just waiting for the right owner to transform it into one of the prettiest properties in the village.
