Early 17th Century masseria with oceanview and old watch tower
The Masseria is part of a protected nature reserve. Three Masseria’s are gathered around the vicinity. Yours will be one of three, but Masseria La Torre is the jewel of the crown.
The masseria is an 17th century building with a watch tower and secure gates. The main house has been developed over two floors. The property also features an old chapel with ancillary rooms both on the ground and first floor, a set of old stables, and a citrus garden. The stables are located north east of the main building towards the ocean and directly north of the church. The buildings are encircled by a wall, so a sheltered court yard will be part of your living area. The neighbor’s property to the South is another old white washed masseria, unfortunately not for sale. So your home will be ‘watched’ and the neighbors are very helpful people.
For those interested in Apulia’s agricultural life, this stunning terrain of 6 hectares boasting olive trees throughout its grounds is ideal. The red earth and those enormous trunks of the olive trees is what makes Puglia so so special and its all part of this stunning white washed Masseria.
The entrance of the masseria is composed of a wide double door served by a set of stairs that allow access to the top, this is considered to be a trap door. The main interior courtyard lays the setting to the main house, to the left a citrus and orange garden, and further straight down leads you to the chapel as well as the stables.
Main Masseria Room Structure
The main house consists of four rooms on the ground floor which are barrel vaulted, feautring extremely high ceilings and thick walls. In the past this building was a watch tower accessed by a drawbridge on the first floor. There are fantastic views of the ocean from the first floor.
The chapel which is located north east towards the ocean has a planimetric development with an elongated rectangular center and a barrel vault. The chapel is on the first floor but also boasts ground floors that are apart of an independent structure.
The stables which are further north of the chapel have a longitudinal planimetric development in the south-north direction. In particular they consist of external perimeter walls on all three sides. Fantastic for developing a spacious living area with view from the upper level of the sea
