Full description:

This traditional Corfiot manor house is located in the very green village of Gastouri, Central Corfu. The first floor, entered from an exterior staircase, provided living quarters for the absentee landlords' summer holidays, and the ground floor served as stable, wine-press and storage barn. The original house had four rooms on the residential floor and was probably built in the early 18th century. In 1780, an extension was added with two large extra rooms on the residential floor and a stable on the ground floor. A more stately double stone entry staircase was built at that time. Undated secondary buildings-kitchen, laundry, keeper's cottage and the ruins of what had probably been an earlier main house, were on the North side. The upper floor was divided to form four bedrooms and a sitting-room library with a small fireplace. The ground floor of the main building was paved with local stone from Sinies and turned into a large summer family-room opening onto a walled entry-garden (W) and to the large veranda with built-in benches (E). The former stable became a winter living/dining room with a large stone fireplace and a picture- window with a view of the walled garden. A whole new wing was built, designed in the traditional style by Athenian architect Panaghis Psomopoulos. This connected the main house with the smaller ruins which were rebuilt to house a laundry, a storeroom and a small flat for staff. The main space is a large open-plan kitchen/winter family-room with a large fireplace and many mullioned windows facing W and E. A loft area lined with book-cases leads off the main staircase. The gardens surrounding the house were developed gradually over the years. Gardening is a particular interest of the present owner, who is a past president of the Mediterranean Garden Society, and she has concentrated on applying the principles of water conservation and using plants (mostly shrubs and bulbs) appropriate to the local climate and the aesthetics of the landscape, always careful to merge the cultivated with the wild. For the hardscape she's used local stones, as well as architectural remnants from the wine-press, the olive press and the house restoration. Several articles about the garden have been published in important English language magazines
