HOLLYOAKS, Gouvia, CorfuRef: 20406 Under Offer
A much loved home, this attractive house has been built by its present owners to take advantage of the sloping plot of land in which it stands, and to enjoy the long distance views out to sea and with Corfu Town in the far distance.
A quiet country road leads to the house, and a gated entrance driveway offers plenty of parking space.
The pebbled path leads around the side of the house to the front door, and into the entrance hallway. From here a spacious double bedroom, a bathroom and a separate WC lead off the hallway. The bedroom has patio windows overlooking the garden..much more of that later!
Also on the ground floor is a comfy 'snug', used year round as a dining/sitting room and with a well designed galley kitchen at one end and a wood burning stove in one corner. Windows from the kitchen overlook the driveway,and patio windows lead out onto a pretty covered terrace, perfect for outside dining.
Upstairs is reached by a wooden staircase from the hallway, which leads up into a very attractive high ceilinged living room. This room is especially light and bright, with plenty of windows allowing light to flood in, and patio windows onto a balcony.
At the rear of the room are two bedrooms, one a good sized double, the other a smaller single room. A good sized family bathroom is also on this floor.
The present owners are keen gardeners and have carefully landscaped their plot into a beautiful Mediterranean style garden, with lots of drought tolerant plants and shrubs. Mature trees provide plenty of shade for a pretty fish pond, and there is a woodland area in one corner.
A further area is kept slightly separate and is fully fenced with its own gated entrance from the road. This is planted with fruit trees, but would be an ideal location for a vegetable plot.
In the centre of the garden is a swimming pool, surrounded by terraces for sunbathing.
Mains water is connected to the property but the owners carefully conserve their water in various storage tanks to avoid wastage. The entire property is fenced.
This is an unusual property, designed for comfortable year round living, in a peaceful residential area, only a 15 minute drive into the centre of Corfu town. Well worth viewing!
