This a fantastic opportunity to purchase an impressive masseria with a sea view close to the beautiful town of Ostuni.
The masseria dates back to 1800, with various upgrades made over the years; the most recent works include an upgrade to the electric and plumbing systems.
The main body of the masseria has five bedrooms, two on the lower level and three on the first floor, with direct access to the vast roof terrace. From the roof terrace, you can enjoy spectacular 360-degree views of the Adriatic sea to the front, the gorgeous hills of Ostuni to the rear and the beautiful Citta Bianca Ostuni to the right.
Both floors have their kitchen, living rooms and bathrooms.
Next to the main body of the masseria, you will find the grand living /dining room with a magnificent star-vaulted ceiling, "pietra di Trani" stone floors and a huge bread oven.
Beside this is a huge room currently used as a workshop and garage. It also boasts fabulous high star vaulted ceilings and could easily open up and join the living space next door.
There are three new bathrooms to the right, followed by seven outbuildings classed as stables and store rooms.
Above the stables is another roof terrace with two rooms that need complete renovation. This could become the perfect guest suite with a private balcony and sea view.
On the other side of the courtyard is a separate annexe wholly renovated with an open plan kitchen and living plus one bedroom and bathroom.
Behind the masseria is a colourful orchard with abundant fruit trees, including orange, cherry, peach pear and figs. An area of 4000 sqm has been classified as urban, allowing for the addition of other structures, including a swimming pool.
The remaining 45,000 sq m comprises a small vineyard and olive groves with olive trees ranging from thousands of years old to the youngest, which were planted in the early 2000s.
In total, there are 293 ancient olive trees and 790 younger ones.
The grounds offer many spaces to explore and enjoy lovely walks amongst the trees with views of the Ostuni hills.
There is a second entrance at the rear of the property with a magical drive through the olive groves to the masseria.
The property has a well for water and a modern private septic system.
Electric boilers supply hot water. There is air conditioning in the renovated parts, plus a central heating system.
The property is equipped with alarm security cameras and electric gates.
Here is your perfect Puglian hideaway. You will feel miles away from the hustle of everyday life, yet in only five minutes, you can reach Ostuni, the picturesque "Città Bianca. Ostuni is a buzzy tourist town, full of restaurants and bars and where there is always something going on.
The charming towns of Locorotondo and Cisternino are within easy reach, both true gems with small cobbled streets and many fine restaurants and shops. Locorotondo is famous for its round historical old town and the music festival in August.
The Adriatic coast, with many sandy beaches and sleek beach clubs, is easily reached in just 10 minutes.
The gorgeous coastal villages of Santa Sabina and Villanova, full of seafront restaurants, are also reached in under 15 minutes.
Brindisi airport is an easy drive of just 40 km.
What More To See:
The masseria has the advantage of being within easy reach of many areas of world interest, such as the mile-long caves of Castellana; the archaeological excavations of the Roman Egnatia by the Adriatic coastline; the Trulli houses of Alberobello- a Unesco World Heritage site: the beautiful white town of Ostuni, located on top of a hill with fantastic sea views; the medieval town of Oria; the wealthy baroque town of Martina Franca; the petite and charming Cisternino, the Zoo Safari Park of Fasano (lots of fun for children and adults alike); the caves of Polignano a Mare, well known also for its tasty ice cream; Grottaglie famous for its ceramics and old stone carvings; and last but not least the famous baroque city of Lecce which is called the Florence of the South. Lecce is a beautiful town for long walks, enjoying the fantastic atmosphere, bars, outside restaurants and great shops. Lecce can be reached in 40 minutes and has countless medieval churches and a great richness of architecture. In town, the famous Roman amphibian theatre is also used for music and drama performances in the open during the summer season.
Further to the south, inland Salento has several charming historical villages with ancient history. The townhouses often come with a garden and roof terrace. And its fascination to open the simple door from the street - and inside, almost like a little palace with a garden! The advantage of staying in a town is socialising with Italian neighbours, walking to the cafe and buying a newspaper and a cup of coffee in the morning and having all amenities within reach during daytime and nighttime.
In Sternatina and Martignano to the south of Lecce, antique Greek is still spoken by the villagers.
Maglie is like a mini Lecce with many fine buildings. Muro Leccese is more diminutive and represents a small town/village with an excellent architectural history. Cutrofiano is famous for French holiday home ownership. Ruffano has many fine old buildings for sale, waiting to find new owners and to be restored. Surano has a small town centre with very excellent antique facilities for sale. Spongano, again is a small village surrounded by olive groves. Here you can see grand secluded villas and country retreats owned by foreigners and families from North Italy who come to relax in rural Salento.
The east coast of Salento is rougher than the southwest and for people who enjoy the sea and fishing. Somewhat more elegant than the east coast. Castro is beautiful with its location on top of the cliff by the sea and many villas with direct access to the sea. Santa Cesarea Terme is a spa resort, very popular with a beautiful setting and bay.
The cost from Santa Maria di Leuca to Gallipoli has many fine sandy beaches. The villages are perhaps not the prettiest but room for beach life, pizzerias, restaurants and disco music in the summertime.
Santa Catarina has well known also for its many fine villas in the area, some antique.
The sea outside Porto Cesareo, further up the coast, is probably the most beautiful and fantastic sunset.
By air, there is a choice of two international airports, served by Ryanair, Easyjet, Ba and others, both easily reached; Bari in the north by car on the motorway in approximately 1 hour 15 minutes and nearby Brindisi in the south in about 25 minutes.
There is a train station at Brindisi, and possible to take the train from Bari airport via Bari central in 1 hour 25 minutes.
More To See In Apulia:
Bari is the commercial capital city with 250 000 inhabitants and offers the best shopping, a grand opera house called the Petruzzelli teatro and a large medical city centre with many museums. Just north of Bari lies a little town called Giovinazzo, a true gem right by the sea. Further north is Molfetta Outlet, a famous shopping galleria and 20 minutes further is Traini, a sophisticated town with a beautiful half-moon bay & marina. Continue north to Castel del Monte, the mystical castle Frederic Ii built in the 14th Century.
Within a 2,5 hour drive to the North of Bari lies Gargano, the peninsula called the spur of the Italian boot. Gargano forms a significant nature and wildlife Reserve and offers hiking and scenic trips around the peninsula. From here, there are daily boat trips to the small Tremiti islands.
Lifestyle And Culture:
The Italian lifestyle means many things, especially socialising; the home is used for sleeping and breakfast, and the Italians go out for enjoyment and dining. There are so much you can experience, like early morning markets in small towns. Music festivals, religious carnivals, beach life, historical tours in the main towns, cooking classes, learning a bit of Italian at language schools in Lecce, dining at the many countries and seaside restaurants and nightclubs at the beach clubs of Capitolo.
As Apulia is a peninsula surrounded by two seas- the Adriatic in the north and the Ionic in the south - water sports dominate in the area; sailing, yachting, water skiing, kite-surfing, swimming & beach life. Scuba diving and fishing are available in Santa Sabina. Torre Guaceto nature reserve also extends to the sea, so the coastline presents a heaven of sea life, ideal for snorkelling.
Golf has five good courses, and San Domenico is world-class (Pga 2014 Challenge Final). Tennis, horseback riding, hiking and bicycle tours are other options for the active-minded. Squash clubs are located in Bari, Bitonto and other places.
Southern Italy is warm and friendly, and the temperature in Serra Nova is temperate all year round. Even in the cold of January, it doesn't drop much below 15c. Serra Nova has a microclimate.
The temperature in Apulia is very temperate. May, June and July, Sept tend to be 25 to 30 March, April and October in the 20c. The summer months can get to 40c, ideal for those sun lovers.
Winter temperatures; Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb. Range from 5c to 15c, it depends on the sun. We have had weeks of endless sunshine during the "Winter". Places like Ostuni, Fasano and Cisternino are very hilly and can even have occasional snowfalls. The temperature can differ between these cities by 10c.
Being south, Apulia has warmer weather than Northern Italy. Even in the "winter months" of December to February, the average number of sun hours per day is four and 10-11 sun hours per day in June-August! This means you can enjoy a long season of nice weather in Apulia. When you plan to buy a holiday home in Apulia, think that you will spend much more time outside than inside. Therefore you will need plenty of terrace space, pergolas etc., at your Apulian property and cooking facilities outside are convenient.
The water temperature at the beginning of May is, on average, 19 degrees, up to 27 degrees in August/September and 19 degrees in November. This means you & family will spend time at the beach. Where ever you are in Apulia, you can reach the shores within 30 minutes.
Why Buy In Apulia:
Apulia has until recently been called the hidden treasure of Italy, unknown to most tourists who come & stay in Rome, Florence, Venice and the Italian Riviera. The property prices are low in Apulia and inadequate means value for money at bargain prices for international buyers. We see more and more foreign visitors coming to Apulia. However, all this is rapidly changing because of massive investments in the infrastructure, such as the improved motorways, enlarged airports and the introduction of low-cost airlines such as Ryanair and Easyjet. In our opinion, assets will show good growth in value because of the increased demand for northern Italians, as Apulia has become the most popular holiday destination for Italians. But rest assured; no tourist villages will ever be built because, in Apulia, the coastline is protected, and people are against modern developments which do not fit into this historical landscape. Therefore, prices are bound to rise with increased demand for a fixed and limited number of properties.
