Mesagne (Brindisi) - Immersed in an olive grove, pine grove and orange grove of about 3 hectares, in the countryside of Mesagne, in an enchanting location a few kilometers from the beaches of Salento, we offer for sale Masseria Caracciolo, a beautiful ancient residence of Salento, dating back to the twelfth century.
The Masseria is made up of two separate buildings, on the left there is the one destined to the dwelling, divided on two floors, on the right the one where the horse stables and the fences for the shelter of the livestock are located.
The property has two large terraces, one located on the roof and the other on the right wing of the building, spread over an area of about 400 square meters.
It consists of entrance hall, lounge, living room, kitchen, 4 bedrooms, study, three bathrooms.
In the courtyard inside the Masseria there is an Arch, built in the hard stone "carparo", it is perhaps what remains of a small church that ensured the religious service to the noble residents and their subordinates, shepherds and peasants.
Architectural feature of great interest is the vaulted ceilings.
Other peculiarities we find in the living room, where there is a sofa that has stone tops, and in the various rooms, the bright tiles that cover the floor are Neapolitan, traditional in Salento.
The fireplace, reconstructed with two openings in the center of the room, divides the living area of representation from that living room.
The mangers of the old stables, covered with the lively polychrome of the classic Vietri ceramics, are an unexpected variation on the themes of the living room, lending both to the buffet and to the display of furnishings and indoor plants.
The old faucets, recovered in the warehouse of a junk dealer, not only decorative, are still used.
The bedrooms are all very spacious and particular, the master room on the first floor has the vaults designed with pointed arches.
A splendid artist's residence that relives in its Mediterranean charm.
