The gardens at the Lemon Tree House are a celebration of Mediterranean planting. Sculpted rosemary and lavender intersperse with colourful splashes of iris and mists of gaura. An entrance courtyard features a mature lemon tree, reassuring of an altogether gentler climate. Intriguingly hidden amongst the gardens, the villa is designed to be out of sight, despite which the hill-top position provides far-reaching views to the Corfu Straits on the horizon.
Art-filled and comfortably stylish, all bedrooms and reception rooms are independently located off a central courtyard, providing good levels of individual privacy and independence, with communal living areas and outdoor terraces well suited to gathering for relaxation and dining. A 9mx3m swimming pool set in Bulgarian marble has an adjacent changing and shower room and is well-positioned for cooling off whilst enjoying the blissful panorama.
Natural materials dominate the design architecturally, notably marble, stone, and wood, providing a pleasing backdrop to an impressive art and sculpture collection. Windows roll back to give an indoor-outdoor vibe, whilst allowing a gentle summer breeze to permeate through the property. A principal outdoor terrace is comfortably furnished with outdoor sofas, and for cooler evenings, an outdoor wood-burning fireplace. A large lower terrace is perfect for exercise and yoga, set amongst the fragrant gardens.
