Nestled into a picturesque hillside overlooking the enchanting Northeastern Bay of Corfu, this striking contemporary home exudes a minimalist design ethos that perfectly complements its stunning natural surroundings.
Set amidst a sprawling plot dotted with olive trees, this property provides an oasis of privacy, serenity, and tranquility. The lush olive grove and meticulously landscaped grounds effortlessly merge with the natural environment, providing a range of outdoor spaces for relaxation, alfresco dining, and basking in the sun. The swimming pool is positioned in front of the living room, complemented by an outdoor dining space. Both bedrooms feature expansive balconies, offering an additional vantage point to savor the stunning panoramic vistas. The residence’s design is characterized by its minimalist, ultra-modern aesthetic, featuring sharp, clean lines and bold architectural angles that seamlessly blend with the pristine landscape. Virtually concealed within its natural surroundings, the property's facade invites an abundance of natural sunlight into the interior. Earthy tones and materials dominate the interior design, resulting in a unique fusion of high-end amenities that honor the surrounding natural aesthetics.
The ground floor is thoughtfully divided into two expansive sections. The first encompasses a capacious open-plan living and dining area, accompanied by a guest WC. The second section houses a separate kitchen, ingeniously integrated into the overall design to preserve the uninterrupted views and natural light. This entire ground floor is flooded with natural illumination through the extensive floor-to-ceiling windows and doors, which also open onto a partially covered dining area, external seating, a sun terrace, and the pool.
The first-floor hosts two opulent master bedrooms, each equipped with ensuite bathrooms and access to a spacious terrace - an ideal spot to unwind while reveling in the awe-inspiring sea views. The upper level also grants access to a separate one-bedroom guest house, nestled harmoniously within the natural environment.
Kyrstam epitomizes the fusion of contemporary living with the serene beauty of its natural surroundings.
