BAMBOLO, Agios ProkopisRef: 20125
This attractive house gets plenty of natural light and is located at the centre of the traditional settlement of Agios Prokopios, just a 10-minute drive from Corfu's main town. Most likely built at the end of the 18th century, the owner has paid meticulous attention to detail in preserving all the authentic elements of the house.
The latest restoration works (2018-2020) were executed under the guidance of a renowned archaeologist-restorator of Byzantine churches and monuments, with the purpose of highlighting all the historical elements of the property. All techniques and materials followed traditional restoration specifications. Thus, the original cypress floors, the floorings, the staircase, the ceilings, the windows, and the doors were preserved and maintained. The external coatings and plaster have been replaced where necessary with new ones, using the old techiniques.
The furnishings, which are all included in the price, have combined old Corfiot and newer furniture of the '60s. At the same time, the house acquired and integrated all contemporary comforts.
The three-storey house consists of a living room with dining area and kitchen on the ground floor, where the main shower room is also located, with storage space underneath the staircase. The wooden staircase leads to the first floor, where the two bedrooms are located – one with a double bed and one with a single bed, as well as two wardrobes. The first floor will soon be equipped with brand-new air conditions. The thick stone walls (almost 60cm) means the ground floor stays cool even in summer and no cooling is required.
Upstairs, there is another small bathroom in nautical style. The small attic (max. height 1.75 m) can be used as a third bedroom.
Building surface (ground floor and first floor): 60 sqm.
Attic surface: 25 sqm
The small, but green yard on the west main side of the house, create a cosy private space.
The village is one of very few left with a true traditional feel - frequent visits by local greengrocers, fishmongers, as well as artisan bakers, who sell their fresh vegetables, fruits, fish, seafood, breads, and cakes directly to the village's inhabitants. The house is just twenty meters from the village square, where a traditional old café and a more contemporary one offer local dishes, drinks and light meals with local wine.
