THE JACARANDA ESTATE, s.e. Corfu
A highly unusual property comprising the main 4 bedroom house with swimming pool, set in extensive well-tended gardens and land, plus a 2 bedroom gatehouse. The property is completely private and yet easily accessible to both east and west coast beaches, Corfu Town and the Airport.
This lovely estate was constructed for the owners in the 1980’s, set in the most beautiful rural surroundings, on a hillside, surrounded by olive grove and cypress trees. The elevated situation offers wonderful wide ranging views to both east and west coasts of the island. The property is accessed by a long drive, ensuring total privacy, yet it is located only minutes drive from the sandy beaches on the west coast, and the picturesque pebble beaches and fishing villages on the east coast.
In the main house there is a reception area with guest cloakroom, and a vast living and dining room with a sliding glass wall, leading to a wide covered terrace overlooking the views and the pool. On this floor there are 4 spacious bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and the kitchen. The house has an adaptable design, since it would be possible to use one section of the house with 2 bedrooms and a bathroom as a completely separate space, with its own private entrance. The property has full central heating, and a natural water supply.
The large swimming pool is set in the gardens, which have a wide range of shrubs and flowers – such as jacarandas, bougainvillea and jasmine. The rest of the estate has lawns and the natural surroundings.
The property is an elegant house in a supremely peaceful location, and is a perfect full time or holiday home. Due to the size of the land, it would also be possible to consider it as an investment opportunity for expansion either as a boutique hotel, or exclusive rental properties.
The area has previously had a lower profile than the busier northern part of the island, but the recent opening of several luxury hotels and a marina in the region has brought greater interest, whilst still maintaining the low key atmosphere.
