Located in the serene area of Kentroma, Ojun stands as a spectacular contemporary residence in a truly dramatic setting. Perched on a hillside, this home offers unparalleled views and a magnificent panorama of the sea, along with the charming bays lining Corfu's coastline.
Set within an elongated plot, graced by the presence of ancient olive and cypress trees, the main residence and its independent guest house are easily accessible through a prominent main gate and a private road. The unique shape of the plot has been thoughtfully leveraged to create fully landscaped external areas, featuring cutting-edge gardens, expansive paved seating zones, and an external kitchen and dining area. The crowning jewel of this estate is undoubtedly the stunning private pool strategically positioned at the forefront of the land, making the most of the breathtaking panoramic views.
The main residence offers spacious living spread over two levels, with an additional basement area. Every room has been cleverly designed to take full advantage of the breathtaking views, providing access to a terrace and outdoor spaces. The main entrance leads into a square-shaped ground floor entrance hallway, boasting a high ceiling and glass doors that frame the magnificent views. The open-plan space encompasses a modern kitchen, a welcoming dining area, and, at the far end, a living room featuring a fireplace and multiple exits leading to the outdoor spaces. This entire area is enveloped by expansive glass windows and doors that open onto the inviting front-facing verandas. To the right, a beautiful, covered terrace awaits, complete with additional seating areas and the inviting swimming pool.
The lower level houses the main sleeping quarters, with two generous bedrooms, each equipped with an ensuite bathroom and doors opening to terraces and gardens. Nestled in the corner of the building is the master suite, which includes its own ensuite bathroom, a comfortable sitting room, and private access to a marvelous terrace with a secluded seating area and a jacuzzi, nestled amidst the olive trees. The staircase leading to the basement area invites exploration, revealing a laundry room, storage spaces, a well-equipped gymnasium, and a cinema room.
Completely detached from the main villa, a one-bedroom guest suite with an ensuite bathroom offers a private terrace and seating areas, allowing guests to immerse themselves in the remarkable outdoor atmosphere that the plot and the area at large have to offer.
