We are pleased to offer this lovely 3 bedroom villa sitting in over 2 acres of land in the countryside outside Carovigno, just 5 minutes to the beaches in Torre Guaceto and village of Serranova, and 20 minutes from Brindisi airport.
The villa provides about 100m2 of accommodation and is reached along a tree lined drive shared drive which splits into two with the left side leading to the villa and the right leading to a trullo and lamia which is also for sale separately. You reach the villa by entering under a pergola which provides shade for cars and is stunning when the wisteria is in bloom and then onto a terrace and the main entrance. The main door brings you into a large open plan living room, with lounge are and large open fireplace, kitchen with a central island housing the sink and gas hob, ample storage units and workspace and a dining area with dining table and chairs. To the right of the kitchen is a family bathroom and bedroom, whilst to the rear you find a further bathroom and two bedrooms, one of which has double doors leading to the garden. The villa benefits from air conditioning in all the rooms for both heating and cooling. Outside there is a veranda which is ideal for al fresco dining and a covered outdoor cooking area with a pizza oven and BBQ which is also great for summer entertaining. Stairs at the rear of the property lead to the lovely roof terrace with fabulous views of the sea and Brindisi in the distance. This is the perfect spot for sun-downers and has a lot of potentials to be an additional all-day dining area with a view by adding a sail shade or even a giant gazebo. The enormous mature garden of 8800m2 (about 2.17 acres) has lots of fruit and olive trees and is private and peaceful, with plenty of space to add a private pool if desired. The villa also has its own well, so there is no water shortage. The villa has the real advantage of being on the doorstep of the nature reserve of Torre Guaceto, and you can cycle to its beautiful beaches. You are only a few minutes from the village of Serranova, with its central cafe and one-stop store, a popular meeting point for ex-pats and locals alike. The villa is an excellent purchase in its own right, but for anyone looking for an investment package, there is a real opportunity here as the old trullo next door, also for sale, once restored, would make for an excellent holiday rental. The price of the trullo is 78,000 euros.
Casa Travella was founded in 1987 when Linda & Pietro Travella saw an opportunity to offer Italian property for sale. At this time there were very few companies that offered any property for sale in Italy. Now years later read some of their story.
The company is fronted by Linda Travella and Casa Travella started selling property on Lake Como, where Pietro was born and Linda has worked and lived. The company were able to offer advice on numerous properties and ongoing help with all aspects of the buying process. If a client wants to restore a property, then Casa Travella can source tradesmen and professionals in the area and help with every aspect of the transaction.
When the BBC were looking for someone to speak on BBC Breakfast News about European property Linda was chosen to appear live on the programme. Other TV and radio programmes followed including Radio 5 Live, and ‘I want that House’ with Mark Simpkins, where Linda appeared in 6 episodes, the last one being a live programme from Florida, where an Italian apartment was given away as a prize. Linda appeared for RTE, Irish TV and for Channel 4‘s ‘A Place in the Sun’, where she accompanied Amanda Lamb along the shores of Lake Como by boat, to show her some of the stunning villas, including the one owned by George Clooney.
The Casa Travella team are always pleased to help when clients want to buy or sell a property in Italy. The office is multilingual with English, Italian and Spanish being spoken.
Linda says: ‘I feel proud that we can offer property for sale in many areas of Italy and we are able to give clients independent and professional advice on areas and types of property to suit their budget and needs.’
The Casa Travella team look forward to helping you buy or sell your Italian home.
