HALCYON VILLA, Nissaki, CorfuRef: 10722
This is a unique opportunity to acquire a top quality premium property in a prime location just a few steps from the sea on the prestigious north east coast of the island of Corfu.
All major construction works to the main house including underfloor heating, stone terracing and bordering walls have been completed to the highest standard of workmanship, and the individual design features chosen by the talented husband and wife owners.
A large double arched front doorway leads into the house and offers a straight-through view to the sea. A covered porch has been constructed over the entrance, and an arched pergola enhances the garden.
The accommodation includes a fully equipped kitchen, spacious hallway, living space with with mezzanine minstrels gallery, a selection of en suite bedrooms on different levels, a massage therapy room, a TV room, and many outdoor terraces for wining and dining either in the sunshine or under cover. There is a barbecue area, and an outdoor games space for boules, quoits and badminton.
Below the main house, and quite separate from it is a guest or staff cottage.
All main rooms have large, sliding patio doors for maximum views towards the sea. The designer's intention was to create a light and airy atmosphere, reminiscent of a traditional olive press or monastery with large open spaces throughout. The exterior of the property sympathetically blends into its surroundings "as if it has always been there", using local stone - all of which has been dug from the site during construction.
High insulation factors and waterproofing have been incorporated into the 60cm thick walls throughout the building. Double insulation has been applied to the south facing roof, creating an exceptionally cool house in summer and warmth in winter months.
Waterproofing has been applied to all external house stone works and hidden integral brickwork. Technical features include air conditioning, ceiling fans, fan coil cooling and heating, wi-fi and satellite TV connections.
There are two large car parking areas, on approaching the house and on the lower terraces below the house.
It is only a very short walk (4 minutes) from the property down a tree lined pathway to a stunning, unspoilt cove and beach with no vehicle access. A stroll along the water front brings you to the little bay of Nissaki with a selection of tavernas and a gift shop. There is a local mini-market, bakery and cake shop on the coast road which is also within walking distance.
Yachts can be safely anchored off the cove during summer months. Nissaki harbour is a short walk away offering a slipway or moorings for small yachts and speedboats. The harbour offers total protection from the maestro wind.
The design allows for some internal changes to be made in the usage of the rooms - especially on the lower ground floor.
The infinity swimming pool is 10m x 4.5m and is located conveniently close to the main house.
