White’s the word when you are in Puglia! White as the local stone used to build and restore this lovely property, white as the limestone used to paint the internal walls, white as the pinnacles on top of each cone.
We are in Cisternino, in the middle of beautiful Valle D’Itria, an Apulian area characterised by thousands of trulli spread all around the territory.
The main house is composed by a complex of Trulli featuring 3 cones, measuring about 110 sq.m. all on one level.
As you step in, you enter into a spacious hall, leading you to the different areas of the house.
In front of the main entrance, there are the doors to 2 comfortable bedrooms. On the left there is a bathroom with shower: all the fittings are from well known designers. On the right you access a second bathroom with shower and the living area, composed of an open-plan kitchen/sitting room with fireplace. From here, a french door leads you out to the garden and portico, where you can enjoy al-fresco dinners.
The contrast between the white walls and the light blue used for the doors and windows, makes it all very relaxing for the eyes and the soul.
The whole house enjoys an underfloor heating, for maximum comfort and energy saving.
The property also features a lamia (a typical structure, normally attached to trulli) of about 45 sq.m., that you could use as a dependance for guests, as it features a bedroom and a bathroom. It could also be converted into a pool-house.
A lovely portico has been recently built, and thanks to its position, it can be easily used both from the main house and from the annex.
The buildings are surrounded by a spacious garden and 1.4 hectares agricultural land, including olive trees.
The garden is unfinished, so you can make some good landscaping, according to your taste and need.
Building a swimming pool is possible.
Cisternino is one of the best known towns in Valle D’Itria, Puglia. The rolling green valley is criss-crossed by dry-stone walls, vineyards, almond and olive groves, and winding country lanes. This is the part of Puglia most visited and loved by foreigners, thanks to its beautiful landscapes, the quiet atmosphere and a territory sprinkled with small cones, that compose the trulli.
Valle D’Itria makes up part of the Provinces of Bari, Brindisi and Taranto, and comprises the Comuni of Alberobello, Carovigno, Castellana Grotte, Ceglie Messapica, Cisternino, Fasano, Locorotondo, Martina Franca, Noci, Ostuni, Putignano, San Michele Salentino, San Vito dei Normanni and Villa Castelli: all of them are worth a viewing.
Unlike other areas in Puglia, Valle D’Itria is very quiet and safe, with plenty of familiar people, ready to lend a helping hand.
The area where the property is located is very convenient, as the house is accessible from the main road. This way you don’t have to drive on a long white road and it gives you a sense of security. The location is secluded but not isolated.
