San Marco Mansion
Located in the heart of the peaceful village of Agios Markos (San Marco), surrounded by low hills and woodland, this exclusive property in Venetian style offers spectacular view of the sea and embraces the “Dolce Far Niente” summer living. It was recently restored meticulously to the smallest detail by one of the most famous Greek architect studios and gives you the atmosphere of an 18th century mansion in a perfect combination with a modern, comfortable interior.
This splendid property, undoubtedly one of the hidden gems of Corfu, covers an area of approximately 113 sqm and is surrounded by landscaped and carefully planted outdoor spaces.
Spread over two levels, connected by a white-washed staircase, the main living area consists of a majestic entrance, a spacious open plan dining-sitting area and a bright kitchen – both with direct access to the garden.
Upstairs, the two bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, opening onto a view over the green hills and the sea at the horizon. The master bedroom spills out to a generous balcony, connected with an external staircase to the garden level. Furthermore, a guest WC and a washing machine room completes this wonderful home.
Benefiting from beautiful volumes with complete respect to the architectural heritage, very good fittings, optimal sunshine, an exceptional location, privacy and breathtaking views all over Corfu’s North-East coast and landscape, this one of a kind property will instantly seduce you.
The restoration of this 18th century mansion was carried out by Urban Soul Project, a renowned architecture studio based in Thessaloniki. With a portfolio of projects ranging in scale, type, location, and budget, the studio engages in a wide spectrum of designs.
Their aim is to blend modern and traditional design with the highest standards in quality construction through new technology, materials, vintage techniques and meticulous attention to detail.
The studio is comprised of a team of architects and engineers, who have a range of international design awards to their name, like the German Design Award 2022, 2018 and the Hotel & Property Award 2018.
