The first trullo, which is a good size with stone mangers, connects to a large lamia or barn. At right angles to the trullo there is another trullo cone which was the old oven – with a bread oven to one side of it and what would have been a smaller oven on the other. This cone is too small to be used for much, but it could be restored into a functional wood fired bread/pizza oven.
You now enter an area which, although overgrown appears to have the originally flagstones and would have been the courtyard of the little farm. To your right is what would have been the main dwelling. To your left are two large animal enclosures with low stone walls and at the end there is a further trullo cone, which has it’s roof but also has damage to the stone work.
The main dwelling consists of a large trullo, with the original wooden ceiling beneath the cone. Off to the left there is another, smaller cone with the original fireplace. You can see the ledges which would have supported a wooden sleeping platform – probably the warmest place to sleep in the house! Two further rooms open up off the main trullo.
Some of the original flagstones or ‘chianche’ remain in the trulli some, sadly, have been stolen.
The property could be developed in a number of ways but should provide 3/4 bedrooms with 2 to 3 bathooms.
There is a good amount of land adjoining, edged with dry stone walls, with olive and nut trees. The setting is off a lane in open countryside, and it feels very rural and peaceful, although there are other dwellings as you walk along the lane, so it is not too isolated. It should be possible to have a pool.
