On the Ionic side of the area of Santa Maria di Leuca, beautiful villa with swimming pool and panoramic view, both on olive groves and the sea. The house is characterized by a modern and neat style that merges well with some construction features typical of the local tradition. The property land comprises around 1.2 hectares, mainly as olive groves, some of which are century old.
The main body is around 350 sq.mt., composed as follows: big and bright living area, organized as an open space comprising also the dining corner, equipped with a 12-seat table, and the kitchen, a toilet and a pantry; from this part of the house a long corridor leads to the sleeping area, composed of 5 bedrooms (3 double bedrooms + 2 bedrooms with twin beds), each with en-suite bathroom with shower. One of the bedrooms is bigger and provided with a wardrobe room, and its bathroom has both shower and bathtub. Going outside from the living area, there is a spacious patio furnished with a 10/12-seat dining table, sofas and other garden furniture.
In the garden area of the property, at around 60 mt from the main body of the villa, there is the annex, built with a stone cladding in accord with the most typical tradition of the area, and comprising one double bedroom and a bathroom with shower. Please note that the bedroom is placed on the underground level, reachable through the staircase, while the bathroom is on the ground level; a wide window gives light to the underground bedroom.
Outside, going up the stairs leading to the upper level above the main body of the villa, there finally is a wonderful sea-view solarium area, with a beautiful irregular-shape swimming pool overlooking the sea, surrounded by olive trees and lawn. The pool area is furnished with sunbeds and some beach umbrellas, and at a few meters from it there is a typical drystone-built “pagghiara” serving as changing room. Although the incidence of Xylella made it necessary to resort to substantial pruning of the trees, thus changing the original landscape, the care profused by the villa's owner made such space even more enjoyable by adding some relax corners under the shade of a sail and of two wooden pergolas. Therefore, in utmost quiet, it is inevitable to be inebriated by the gorgeous sea-view, all the more so at sunset, being this probably one of the most beautiful spots of that portion of the Ionian coast of Salento.
