    About this property

    • An opportunity to purchase a traditional Italian country cottage.
      This is perfect for a couple or made as a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom family cottage.
      The views are amazing with the open land with a few cherry trees gently sloping down towards the stone wall, and on the other side open fields and far away a Trullo silhouette.

      This is the view from the Trullo terrace and here is possible to make a pergola for al fresco dining.
      On either side of the property are Trulli houses but not too close as all three properties have large pieces of land.

      So, please view this lovely 6 cone Trullo stone house in Martina Franca territory going to Villa Castelli, very cute and unique, because of the panoramic views over country flat fields around it and because it is spacious Trullo with six Trulli roof cones. Of course tiny windows an doors as is typical with the old historical Trulli, but inside it is lovely and full of charm and character.

      As we drive near those cute Trulli cones we can watch the surrounding beautiful area, nice little white cones popping out here and there. There is a gated entry leading down from the road. As the Trullo is located lower than the main road there is limited traffic noise and the road is not particularly busy.
      Outside we can see a traditional stone seat, 6 cones with carriage stone extension, wood log burner and water stone reservoir. A new septic tank is needed to be installed.

      Going inside, we find all the original stone Chianche floors, on the right the lovely, good sized kitchen with a window facing east to the veranda: On our left the bathroom. Moving into the large open plan lounge area we see the high ceiling cones, large stone arches, three beds into the large wall arches, which could be easily be made as separate bedrooms if needed or perhaps use as an exciting studio Trullo house - unique. The sofa group is currently placed under the west facing window.

      The Trullo needs an uplifting for say 15,000 euro, including a bathroom update. A swimming pool could be installed, subject to planning permission. Outside we have 3000 sq. m of land, giving a peaceful feeling especially under the shade of the massive cherry trees in front of the Trulli.
