A traditional Pugliese style villa located just outside the medieval town of Oria, a 200-year-old building completely renovated and extended to the highest standard.
The property is accessed through a lovely driveway leading up to the villa (electric gate on the street) and surrounded by a mature garden with lawn and ornamental plants with an underground irrigation system.
The villa still boasts the traditional stone facade outside and the original vault ceilings in the oldest part of the property.
The villa comprises a spacious and bright open space with a sitting room, and a dining room connected with a fully equipped open kitchen which opens on walk-out terrace on the back.
The sleeping areas to the left and to the right of the central living space comprise two master bedrooms and a bathroom each. One of these four bedrooms is currently furnished as a workspace/study. Apart from that, there are a library room and a media room which can be converted into bedrooms if necessary. The villa comes with an overall net space of 140 square meters apart from the covered terrace on the back, and the veranda in front.
On the back of the villa, there is a fantastic covered terrace perfect for summer lunch or dinner by the pool during hot summer days.
The pool measures 70 sqm with increasing depth and a diving board and solarium.
There is also a Bbq area and, on the west side of the building, a staircase leading up to the roof terrace with views of the surrounding countryside and the skyline of Oria on the horizon. On the roof terrace, there are also 26 solar panels for electricity production which greatly reduce the energy bill.
The 40 sqm extension is placed on the North side of the villa and it comprises a utility room on the poolside with room for the pool robot, the washing machine, boiler, gas tank and storage space. It also comprises an outdoor shower and a separate toilet with a wash basin. On the front side, there is a technical room for the pool water management system and the solar panel management system apart from storage space for garden tools, bicycles and, of course, a car.
The whole villa is heated and cooled by an air-conditioning system, and on top of this in winter an electric system automatically fans heat from the fireplace into
the living room. The villa has double-glazed, burglar-proof and barred windows with insect-repellent screens throughout.
The 4500 sqm plot is completely fenced off, partly with a wall and partly with high green hedges, which guarantee 100% privacy all year round.
The plot is divided into two: a mature garden with lots of flowers and ornamental plants with a lawn while the rest is a well-kept olive grove and orchard with fig trees, apple trees, pear trees, prune trees, orange trees, mandarine trees, citrus trees, nut trees, amarene cherry trees and almond trees.
Located just outside Oria, the villa is not isolated and surrounded by other villas of local people living there all year round.
The cycling distance to town is a mere five minutes, but walking there is also a great option. The nearby train station can easily be reached on foot as well, and the train takes you anywhere.
