Description of buildings
This estate includes a 16th-century farmhouse, which is now a charming stately residence and an annex surrounded by a 15-hectare plot of land for cultivation purposes with a lush garden, a swimming pool and olive groves.
It develops over two floors for a total net saleable area of 762 sq.m.
The ground floor includes a large entrance with a majestic marble staircase that leads to the master apartment.
The right wing of the building includes a two-room suite, both with an en-suite bathroom (which, when needed, communicate with the master apartment) and a gym, which can be accessed from the outside, with a bathroom.
At the back of the building, there are three elegant 28 sq.m double bedrooms, each with an independent access. These rooms are located in the oldest part of the facility, where you can breathe the unique atmosphere of the 16th-century farmhouse.
The ground floor also includes a large hall and a professional kitchen besides three additional bathrooms.
The elegant master apartment includes three bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, two light-flooded living rooms, the kitchen, a dinette, a large dining room and a family room with a TV set and a fireplace. The high pavilion vaults and the original flooring decorated with mosaics make the settings precious and unique.
This apartment also has a bathroom that serves the living area and a laundry room.
The whole apartment is surrounded by a 228 sq.m terrace overlooking the breathtaking countryside and the swimming pool.
A few metres away from the villa, there is an antique farmhouse, which has been transformed into an annex with a private garden and a double veranda. This annex includes a kitchen, a kitchenette, a living room, a large bedroom with en-suite bathroom, a laundry room and a storage room.
Some of its rooms are set up as an external kitchen with a veranda and a bathroom/dressing room servicing the swimming pool.
The measurements provided indicate the liveable surface area.
The liveable surface area is the same as the walkable surface area (which includes internal walls) plus 10% to take into account supporting walls.
The surface area occupied by stairs may only be calculated once.
State and finishing
Both the architecture of this property and the view are as beautiful as a picture that frames Apulia’s colours: the blue sky, the intense red land, the dark green of the olive trees, the dazzling white of the lime buildings.
Recovered and renovated with care, Tenuta Salentina is a luxury villa with fine interiors.
Both the heating and air conditioning systems cover all the rooms. The fixtures are energy-efficient, and both the electrical and water systems are powered by out-of-view photovoltaic panels (10 kW) installed on the main building’s roof.
A long driveway skirted by imposing pines and slender cypresses leads to the building’s main entrance.
Formal hedges and a large antique fountain decorate the semi-circular area of the external entrance.
The 15-hectare private plot of land includes a lush 3,000 sq.m garden, a 16x8 metre swimming pool with a solarium and a pergola, an olive grove and a plot of land for cultivation purposes.
The master apartment is surrounded by a 228 sq.m terrace, whereas the annex features two pergolas for your outdoor lunches and dinners.
