This beautifully preserved house for sale on Corfu Island is found in the heart of Kastellani village, a mere six miles from Corfu town and the airport. The island’s most pristine sandy beaches are also only a short four-mile drive away. With its own private garden, this two bedroom, one bath house perfect for those who love local architecture and tradition in a serene Greek village setting.
The two-storey home consists of the living room, kitchen, and bathroom on the ground floor. The wooden staircase leads to the first floor, where the two bedrooms are situated. The first floor features a delightful balcony, where you can enjoy views of the surroundings. The small, landscaped yard with its charming well create a cosy private space. The property was probably built at the end of the 18th century and preserves almost intact all the authentic elements of Corfiot traditional architecture.
The latest renovation works (2022-2023) were made with the purpose of preserving its unique style, while also enhancing its appeal. All techniques and materials followed traditional restoration specifications. Thus, the original cypress floorings in the bedrooms, the thick stone walls, the marble countertops, and the wooden staircase were preserved and maintained. New window and door frames with nets were added as well as a new insulated roof. The thick stone walls ensure coolness in summer and warmth in winter while all rooms are equipped with remote controlled ceiling fans. As an added bonus, the plumbing and electrical installations were also renewed.
Kastellani is a traditional village where the main square is the point of reference, a place of meeting by the church Agios Spyridon. In its alleys you will discover some old mansions with courtyards, porticos with coats of arms and wells that reveal the richness of the past.
Despite its central location in Corfu island, this place remains untouched by the impact of mass tourism. The lively Corfu town lies merely 10 km away, while the charming villages of Sinarades and Pelekas are situated at 2 km and 7 km distances, respectively. For those seeking sun-kissed shores, the Agios Gordis Beach awaits just 6 km from this picturesque village.
