Full Description

The property, whose original parts date back partly to the 18th Century and partly to the 19th Century, underwent a painstaking restoration which brought back to light some precious details of the ancient times and lent the farm uncommon charm and elegance, as well as high functionality and remarkable comfort.

The farmhouse consists of a central building (so called corpo masserizio) of a total area of 420 sq. m. and a land of approximately 7.5 hectares (predominantly arable land and partly olive tree grove). The central building is nestled in a beautiful garden of about 3,000 sq. m., entirely delimited by a solid surrounding wall. Outside the enclosed garden area, hence detached from the farmhouse, there is a ruin of approximately 140 sq. m.

The garden is well-maintained and variously arranged: a portion of it is occupied by a wide neat green lawn on which two typical antique cisterns and various citrus trees are set as the perfect background for the sober and elegant swimming pool; in the rest of the garden there are flower beds with ornamental plants and Mediterranean aromatic herbs.

On the side facing the house there is a large area beautifully paved with local stone slabs and furnished with garden furniture, where one can spend pleasant moments of relaxation.

The entire building complex consists of the main farmhouse and various small parts comprising: garages, utility rooms, a small guest house and a completely independent single-room unit used as a reading room and breakfast room.

The farmhouse is arranged mainly on the ground floor, with the exception of only one bedroom (with en-suite) on the first floor.

On the ground floor there is a singular architectural element represented by an elegant and charming atrium with double glass facade on two opposite sides, paved with antique stone slabs. This atrium represents the main entrance of the farmhouse and connects the two sides of the property.

The right side of the building features: a large dining room with fitted-in kitchen, a typical ancient stone fireplace and a storage room; a representative sitting room; and a multiple-use room with bathroom and utility room. Both the sitting room and the dining room face the garden.

On the left side of the property there are: two double bedrooms, both with en-suite, an hallway, a storage room and a staircase leading to the first floor. Adjoining, but with independent entrance from the outside, there is a further bedroom with en suite.

On the first floor there is a double bedroom (with en suite) boasting a terrace offering a stunning panoramic view.

Separated from the farmhouse, there is a cosy guest house consisting of a double bedroom with private bathroom.

Almost all the rooms of this marvellous structure feature majestic ancient barrel-shaped or star-shaped vaulted ceilings.

Both outdoor and indoor spaces boast a minimalist and linear style that allows each element to blend in harmony with the surrounding area and landscape, while leaving plenty of margins for future customisation.

Thanks to the way that interior and external spaces have been designed, this wonderful farmhouse is suitable for both private residential and commercial use, for those who want to experience the beauty of the Salento countryside in absolute comfort and relaxation.

Freehold.
