Property Details
KEY FACTS Property size: 452,82m2 Land size: 47,566 m2 Number of bedrooms: 5 Number of bathrooms: 5 KEY FEATURES Family villa with beautiful gardens. Elegant and traditional style property. Private location. Panoramic sea views. North East Coast of Corfu. Covered verandas - 24.91m2 Swimming pool – 57.75 m2. 2 water tanks - 90 m3 + 60m3. DESCRIPTION St. George's House sits on a fantastically private, large estate in the stunning hills above Kassiopi that still hold an ancient and wild feel about them. With far-reaching views across the sea to the mountains of Albania, this special piece of paradise has a rare calming energy that is becoming increasingly hard to find in the Mediterranean. Surrounded by wildflower meadows, olive trees and ancient oak trees, the restored Venetian walls weave through the land, protecting the fertile soils and creating a large amount of natural habitats for an abundance of flora and fauna. After acquiring multiple neighbouring plots in 2021, work started in February 2022 to restore this beautiful estate that was sitting in the St. Georgios hills above Kassiopi. St. George's House dates back to the Venetian era, circa 1820, where an old olive press stood and still holds some of the original beautiful stone walls. The main house comprises of 5 double bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, an airy drawing room, an expansive kitchen, snug, utility and laundry room, and a voluminous entrance hall. Of the 5 bedrooms, 4 have balconies with sweeping views over the garden, down beyond the olive trees and hills to the sea and Albania beyond. The drawing room is double-heighted to the eaves, full of light, with a large stone fireplace. Recently furnished with stunning linen headboards and curtains, antiques and prints, the house feels like a perfect summer home, with exceptional rental opportunities. The regeneration of the newly acquired 47,566 m2 (47.5 stremma) estate emphasised preserving as much of the wildlife and fauna as possible. The exceptional nature that surrounds the house and beyond into the hills is a great advantage to the property. Old, traditional building methods were used to restore the ancient aloni (stone threshing circle) and to create over three hundred meters of dry stone walls to add more of a flow through the stunning Corfiot countryside and estate. Natural stones from the land were used and followed the flow of the grounds through ancient paths that shepherds and their sheep have walked for centuries. This breath-taking slice of nature is perfect for someone looking for privacy only eight minutes from the quaint harbour village of Kassiopi, brimming with restaurants, bars and shops. FURTHER DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL The title is clean and different options to add additional properties to the estate have already been drawn up, should a new owner want to expand. The adjoining plots have been retained as individual plots should a purchaser wish to develop on the land. Working with a local architect, the current owner has invested in exciting plans for a new larger swimming pool, with an outdoor eating area, shaded seating, fire pit, pizza oven, barbeque and bar. The estate has an abundance of natural old stone, which could be used to construct these. Plenty of land is also available for the installation of a tennis court or yoga deck. The potential to further enhance this beautiful home and its surroundings is an extremely exciting prospect for a new owner and would substantially increase its value. RENTAL POTENTIAL The villa holds a valid rental certificate as a mansion with five bedrooms and a total of ten beds plus a swimming pool issued in 2015. After the recent interior design upgrade and six months of landscaping, St. George's House has been fully occupied throughout the 2022 summer rental season.
