  • Formerly an 11th century Norman watchtower and boasting a 360-degree view over the sea, an impressively restored masseria (fortified farmhouse) with swimming pool on the outskirts of Carpignano, Puglia.

    The 5-hectare (~12½-acre) grounds boast an olive grove, a 100-tree lemon orchard,  extensive gardens, a 14m x 7m swimming pool, a lovely 
    central courtyard with urns full of flowers or trees and a grand staircase to the upper terrace and rooms.
    There is also a second courtyard for the swimming pool and spacious areas ideal for outdoor dining and relaxation.

    The villa itself measures a spacious 290sq m.
    It has vaulted cei
    lings and ancient limestone slab floors throughout.

    It is approached via an imposing Baroque gated archway.
    The driveway leads to a footpath though beds of fragrant rosemary and flowering lantana to the house. To the west of the house is a hedge of approximately 100 lemon trees and are many of other fruit trees around the gardens. 

    Inside is a fully equipped kitchen and open fireplace, a sitting room with open fireplace and 3 double bedrooms, all en suite, on the ground floor.
    An internal staircase and an external staircase lead to the first floor. 
    This holds a spacious bedroom and separate study/dressing room (which could be used as a fifth bedroom), en suite bathroom and private east-facing balcony.

    From these rooms there are stunning views over the olive groves in the three directions.
    The external staircase leads to a roof garden with wonderful views. 

    The house is fully equipped with cooling/heating system and heat for the house water.

    The large 40sq m garage/outbuilding is in stone, with vaulted ceilings and stone slab floors.
    It has potential, subject to planning permission, to be converted into further guest accommodation.

    The location is some 3km from the town of Carpignano, which has an unspoilt historic centre.
    It is about 15 minutes drive from the sea and Puglia's white sandy beaches, and around 30 minutes from Lecce, the capital of the province. 

    The house is ideal for permanent or second home and also has excellent letting potential.
