JANE'S CORNER, Rachtades, CorfuRef: 11467
On the end of a terrace of old houses, this two storey house has been designed 'upside down' with the living space upstairs and the bedrooms below. This means that the living area can take advantage of the views, and the bedrooms benefit from the cooler temperatures in the heat of the summer.
Steps lead from the parking spot up to the front entrance door, which in turn leads to the open plan living room and kitchen, which covers the entire top floor. With windows at each end and also on the side, the room is light and bright. The kitchen is modern yet traditional in design, and has a window overlooking the road leading through the village. At the other end, the sitting room has patio windows leading out to a terrace, with views across the valley towards the villages of Magoulades and Kavvadades, and a glimpse of sea in the distance.
The high vaulted ceiling has allowed enough space for a mezzanine level to be constructed, a useful extra sleeping area.
Downstairs are two double bedrooms, one at each end of the house with a good sized modern bathroom in the middle. All rooms have tiled floors and wooden ceilings, and the room at the front has a patio window overlooking the view.
Outside the land belonging to the house slopes away down the hillside. A large proportion of it has been terraced and paved to give a fabulous and quite private sunbathing terrace, and the rest has been left with the olive trees. There would be plenty of room for the construction of a swimming pool.
The house has oil fired central heating which is located underneath one of the terraces, making it an ideal house for year round living.
