Full description:

Villa 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.

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.
The 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.
The 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.

About Ionian International , UK

Luxury Property Specialists - Welcome to Ionian International

We represent some of the most prestigious beach front properties, land and private estates on the islands of Corfu, Ithaca, Paxos, Lefkas, Kefalonia and Zakynthos.

Our focus has been to cater for the high end of the market in both Corfu property and land. Throughout the North East Coast of Corfu we have been fortunate enough to have sold a large majority of the beach fronted property and land, along with some unique villas and exceptional land located in more elevated positions set back from the sea. We are therefore exceedingly well situated to offer the type of service and advice required by our clients and their Corfu property requests.

We also act as Corfu property search agents in order to find our clients exclusive bespoke off market properties in Greece. In fact many of our properties and plots are not featured on our website and remain privately offered only by request for our clients.

About Ionian International

For us it is not about selling only what we have on our books, but we frequently also act as a search agent.

Through our network of contacts we are able to source most things, whilst consulting our client through the process.

Ionian International has been involved in constructing and project managing the construction of some the finest villas recently built.

When we sell land to a client we offer this complete bespoke service, upon which we guide the client from start to finish.

We are well equipped to run our clients' construction projects due to our strong working relationship with our constructor, who has over 20 years building experience and is notably one the best constructors on the island of Corfu.

We also work closely with the best available architects and engineers and the planning and regulatory departments.
