Property DetailsLocated in Maruggio, 1,5 km from the sandy beaches of the Ionian Sea, this beautiful ancient masseria has been completely renovated. The oldest part is dated back to the first half of the 14th century, most probably by the last Templar Knights and then owned by the Knights of Malta. There are still visible signs to witness their presence.Today the property is a single building with an horseshoe shape around a central courtyard, surrounded by a fully fenced lush botanical garden of approx. 8.600 sq m, rich in different essences (among them the mandrake, a primary ingredient for the preparation of mythological and legendary potions) and 140 olive trees from which a very good olive oil is obtained.The villa of 350 square meters, offers beautiful barrel vaulted ceilings, and has five bedrooms, three bathrooms, two kitchens / dining room, TV room, a study and drawing rooms. It can be divided into two independent units with separate access from the courtyard. Outside, past the old sheep pens, you get to the BBQ area and terraces leading to the tower. It is possible to derive a third small independent unit also with access from the central courtyard.The careful renovation has taken account of all modern requirements: energy saving windows with mosquito nets, water from an artesian well provided with UV sterilizer, alarm system, central heating radiators (pellet fed), air conditioning, panels solar for the hot water, electric gate, outdoor lighting and internet connection. A pool can be built.
