Perched atop an elevated hillside in the idyllic northeast region of Corfu, Jamaja is a testament to architectural excellence and natural beauty. With sweeping vistas of the cerulean sea and the breathtaking coastline, it stands as a harmonious union of luxury and the environment. The olives themselves play a pivotal role in our landscaping efforts, seamlessly coexisting with the indigenous flora, stone walls, pathways, and staircases. Each element has been thoughtfully conceived to craft a one-of-a-kind yet tranquil environment that enhances the stunning panoramas. The appreciation for outdoor living is expressed through generous dining areas and an external kitchen that, along with the overall entertainment spaces, are bathed in natural light and cooled by gentle breezes throughout the day, ensuring every moment is a pure delight.
This property spans two levels, with a guest suite elegantly concealing its substantial volume. The ground floor showcases an open-plan living space, incorporating an expansive living room, dining area, and kitchen. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors on both sides create a seamless connection between the indoors and outdoors, allowing for a complete immersion in the surrounding nature. Two generous bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, as well as an expansive master suite with its own ensuite bathroom, secure the dramatic views while maintaining the much-desired privacy and exclusivity. The guest suite, with its private entertainment areas, offer a unique retreat.
Jamaja, harmoniously blends modern elegance and the pristine beauty of the natural world, resulting in a residence that is as breathtaking as its surroundings, and as functional as it is inspiring. A true testament to architectural ingenuity and a celebration of the splendor of Corfu.
