In the middle of the renowned area of Valle d'Itria and close by the upper Murgia, in the countryside of Martina Franca, c.da Ermellino, we offer for sale an antique 17th-century farmhouse, featuring over 50 acres of land. The Masseria is of the "courtyard" type and it was built in the seventeenth century. It embodies one of the best-preserved examples of such constructions, in light of the great care that its owners, over the years, have put into the modernization process: its historical integrity has been kept up with the arrangement of all the modern features of a contemporary household. The Masseria complex is spread over two real estate units and two levels. The first unit is organized as such: a ground floor of 465 sqm functions as the housekeepers spaces, and it features 5 bedrooms, bathroom and garage. The upper floor, so-called Noble area, consists of 350 sqm. with bedroom, spacious living room with fireplace, kitchen and bathroom. The second unit consists of a ground floor of 589 sqm that features various rooms and spaces for all intents and purposes, the upper floor 158 sqm, three bedrooms, kitchen with fireplace, living room with veranda and bathroom. All the flooring consists of the original Chianca. 20 acres of arable land extend outdoors, planted with olive trees and the most typical Mediterranean plantations. A very distinguished driveway leads to the masseria. The position is very strategic, given how close it is to Alberobello, Locorotondo and Noci, and how drenched it is with the wilderness. Availability is immediate. It is the ideal investment for a buyer looking for a very valuable asset that allows for both agricultural and touristic entrepreneurship.
