We are pleased to offer this magical 7-cone Trullo with lamia, one part of which is already restored to a 2 bedroom unit, with the second part having 7 rooms to be completed, located about 5km from Castellana Grotte and all amenities 25 minutes from the sea and 45 and 60 minutes from Bari and Brindisi airports respectively. The external parts of this beautiful dream house, both the trullo and lamia, have been carefully restored and are in perfect condition with all original features maintained. Inside the current owners have made their home part of the building, and prepared it to be connected to the other, larger part which is yet to be developed. The accommodation of the habitable part is reast from the east facing terrace, entering the living room with fireplace and lare wall alcove and an open-plan kitchen. To the right is a bedroom in the lamia with a barrel-vaulted ceiling, whilst from the living room one step leads you to the main bedroom, with an en-suite bathroom with a shower unit. The bedroom has a terrace door leading out to the courtyard. All the original features have been retained, exposing the natural, beautiful rustic stone parts in each room with the oval-shaped openings. The more significant part has four trullo cones and two lamia, the largest of which has an attractive sloping wooden ceiling. This part has yet to be finished inside and is in a shell status, with entrance doors on the other side, thus possibly making this a separate unit with a private main entrance from the west side of the building. There are seven rooms, and the floor plan is flexible regarding how many bedrooms and bathrooms to make. This part could have up to four bedrooms. Ten meters from the building is an entirely overgrown trullo ruin, which could be restored and made into a one-bedroom cottage. The property sits in land of 5500m2 (1,4 acres) and surrounds the building on three sides, the fourth side is the country lane. There are many trees and natural vegetation and stunning views for miles. The property is connected to mains electricity and a new water cistern was installed with a capacity of 10 cubic meters, and water is filled by lorry transport, which is normal in this part of the countryside. Rural mains water is available at the junction 140 meters up, and possible to connect. The building has a private septic tank and the kitchen cooker is on gas by portable butane gas tube. The lawn outside the terrace is flat and an ideal spot for a pool. The town of Castellana Grotte with all amenities is just 5km away, while the beaches at Capitolo, Polignano al Mare and Monopoli are just 25 minutes away. This is a really impressive trullo, ready to be completed internally and an absolutely stunning and rare example of this type of architecture.
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.
