Amalias House is on 3 floors with terraces at ground and 1st floor levels, taking advantage of the wonderful views. A large lower storage room and garden is accessed via external stone stairs. Stone has been laid in the garden surrounded by trees, bougainvillea, wisteria, lilies and other mediterranean flora.

On the ground floor is a cosy winter sitting room with large fireplace, and a small computer room/study. There are 2 double bedrooms with French doors to terrace and steps down to the garden, and a wet room with shower, toilet and basin, and a utility room.

Stairs lead to the open plan 1st floor, consisting of a fully fitted kitchen, dining and sitting room with French doors onto a large tiled terrace. There is useful storage under the staircase which leads up to the master bedroom on the 2nd floor where there is also a separate bathroom and a walk-in wardrobe.

Cooker, fridge/freezer, washing machine and microwave are included in the sale. Some furnishings may be negotiated separately.

The house is fully centrally heated and currently the year-round home of a British family who have many visitors throughout the year. The accommodation would easily lend itself to Bed and Breakfast guests, for the many walkers and cyclists who roam the mountains in the Spring and Autumn, but could equally be enjoyed as a holiday bolt-hole for those who prefer the real Corfu and all its charms.

Spartilas is perched on the side of the mountain of Pantokrator. It is within easy reach of sea, sand and town, via a choice of several well-maintained roads, depending on whether you prefer hairpins and spectacular views, or the more gentle approach and tranquility through the olive groves. The village has a population of all ages which includes a sprinkling of other European nationalities. It boasts a small family-owned and run supermarket, post office and bakery, several bars and eateries within the village and an extremely good family taverna within walking distance. There is a primary school, hairdresser, doctor's surgery, 3 churches, a local bus service, a flourishing choir and small dance school, plus a fresh fish van which visit weekly. There is also a working modern olive press, and broadband internet.

Around the village there are numerous olive groves, vegetable gardens and vineyards. It is understood that buying or renting plots nearby is a possibility.

All licences and legal paperwork are current.
