As the owner says, this property resembles ’a medieval castle set in a little piece of Africa’. Indeed, ’large’, ’solid’, and ’grand’ are adjectives that spring to mind when first approaching it from its long private driveway.
The separate sitting and dining rooms, the latter resplendent with revolving dining table incorporating the family coat of arms, are reminiscent of medieval dining halls, complete with high windows, a gallery, and vaulted ceilings and columns.
The grounds are naturally shaded by numerous pine trees and the land is indeed like Africa. However, appearing oasis-like, down an avenue of trees, are the two private swimming pools, one small for children, the other very large and overlooked by a covered outside eating area.
The owner lives on one side of a pleasantly formal internal courtyard and this is independent from the rest of the house.
Grottaglie is 4 kilometres away and possesses the essential shops, banks and chemists, and is noted locally for its simple yet attractive ceramics. The city of Taranto and the coast are 20 kilometres distant. The swimming pool (20m x 9m x 2.50m x 1.10m) overlooks a number of ’grotte’ or grottoes and rocky outcrops from which Grottaglie takes its name. Ample parking.
