  • Description:

    Some of the most prominent features of the Villa are the olive tree at the center and the circular marble staircase leading down to the first floor sleeping quarters.
    A further seating area adjacent to the olive tree is at present used as a music studio, and features a full-size Blüthner concert grand piano which is available for purchase if the buyer is interested. Several recitals and concerts have been performed at the Villa since the acoustics are especially good - due to the high ceiling and open timber construction.
    The musician area could equally become a second lounge/ sitting area, leading through French windows to the upper balcony. Parties of up to 100 guests at a time have enjoyed the magnificent view of the Ionian Sea and Albanian mountains from the upper balcony. A veranda provides shelter from the sun during the hottest mid-day periods.

    Ideally situated at Corfu

    Villa Ionia is situated almost exactly in the center of Corfu, 5 minutes’ drive from Gouvia Harbor; 15 minutes from Corfu Town center; and 20 minutes from the Airport. The nearest stores are Dielas and AB in Gouvia. The main coastal dual carriageway is far enough away that you are never troubled by traffic noise, and the Villa is highly secure with its own gated approach and private parking areas.
    Built in 1986, it is mid-way between the villages of Poulades and Temploni on the side of a hill known as “Kephalos” or “The Head”. The countryside is renowned for its wildlife, especially the many varieties of birds which nest in the nearby lakesides of Gavrolimni (20 minute walk) and Scotini (5 minute walk).
    The property has magnificent views of the Ionian Sea, and the Albanian and Greek mountains. The historic island of Vidos is the centerpiece of the Eastward view, overlooked by Mount Pantokrator to the north and Corfu Town to the south.

    Great architecture

    corfu_ionia07Villa Ionia was designed and built in 1986 by the architect Miltiades Kalogiannidis and his brother Michalis, a civil engineer. They take great pride in their concept of “Outside In”, bringing the beauty of the natural outdoor scenery of Corfu within the internal design of the villa.
    The villa was built around an olive tree which forms an attractive centerpiece around which twists a palatial marble stairway with railings with a “vine leaf” theme, accented with pot plants and an indoor vine.
    The villa has been lovingly cared for and restored by two actresses, a professional footballer and presently, a chartered engineer and his family.
    The estate is fully landscaped, with seven palm trees, eighteen olive trees, six lemon trees, six orange trees, two fig trees, two pomegranate trees, eight grape vines, twelve cypress trees, eight bougainvillea shrubs, and other ornamental plants chosen to attract butterflies and humming birds. During April and May the shrubs are alight with the glow of fireflies. One room of the villa is presently home to a “live in” gardener and caretaker who is prepared to “stay on” if the new owners require his services.
    A private borehole supplies water from Corfu's main underground lake. A mains water supply is available if required.

    A 77 square meter swimming pool in the center of 120 square meters of sun bathing area is partly shaded by date palms and olive trees, while over 70% is in open sun. The swimming pool was reconstructed in 2009 and is fully tiled with a new pump and filtration equipment.
    With six underwater floodlights, the pool may be used at any time of day or night. Situated in just over 1 acre (4,100 square meters) of land, the property comprises 400 square meters, split in three levels, with an upper driveway and parking area for up to 5 vehicles, and a lower driveway leading to the basement apartment, with parking for 2 vehicles.

    Lots of room and comfort

    corfu_ioniaThe basement apartment opens directly onto the poolside. It has a large lounge diner which was built in 2008 as a garage conversion, and the fitted appliances in the kitchen are included in the sale.
    The apartment has two twin bedrooms, the front master bedroom opening via French windows onto the poolside. The rear bedroom is underground, and is illuminated via a casement window opening to a greenhouse above. The hallway connecting the two apartment bedrooms and kitchen/ diner leads to a shared bathroom and laundry room (also with fitted appliances included in the sale.)
    The first floor includes four double bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities and fitted wardrobes.
    The master bedroom has two en-suite wash rooms and a “walk in” fitted wardrobe area. The second bedroom has a large covered balcony.
    The third bedroom has its own covered veranda with a kitchenette and private garden with a pond and this bedroom may be approached by its own pathway and lockable French windows.
    The fourth bedroom is adjacent to a large study which is suitable for up to two people “working from home”.
    A large open plan atrium inter-connects all the first floor rooms.
    Presently this room is equipped as a gymnasium.

    Luxuriant and economic equiped villa

    corfu_ioniaThe upper floor is accessible via its own driveway and lockable parking area, and is the living and catering area for the main Villa. Marbled steps lead to the front door and hallway, with a cloakroom and washroom to the right and a library bookcase to the left.
    The expansive upper floor ceiling is open-timbered and paneled with hardwood. A new roof was built by a company in Switzerland in 2001. All upper windows and doors are in Iroko hardwood and windows are double-glazed with Georgian effect internal bars sandwiched between the glass panels.
    The windows on the other floors are sealed double glazed units finished in wood grain finish to match the upper windows.

    A modern kitchen was installed in 2010, and features marble worktops, industrial size stainless double sink/ drainer, dishwasher, eye level oven and microwave, gas hob, chest freezer, double door refrigerator with two sliding freezer drawers. All appliances are included in the sale.The lounge area seats twelve people comfortably. There is a 3-seater recliner settee and three recliner arm chairs. These, plus an antique sideboard and an Austrian dresser with marble top are included in the sale.
    The dining area seats twelve around a large circular marble table known to have cost €12,000. The table and eight chairs are included in the sale.

    Installed technology includes a fully updated electrical installation (2007), and all rooms are equipped with Internet access and telephone points. The communications equipment and rack are included in the sale.
    Seven air conditioning units are fitted; their placement is in sunward facing rooms of the villa.

    A Siemens/ Buderus heating management system was installed in 2011. There are three heating sources:

    • Solar heat exchanger panels on the roof provide free hot water for at least 6 months of the year
    • A wood burner with back boiler is an attractive feature in the upper living room
    • An oil-fired Buderus boiler is installed in an outside greenhouse room. The heating sources feed a half ton heat exchanger/heat store and heat is delivered to all rooms of the Villa via radiators.
