SAN VITO DEI NORMANNI - SALENTO
In the municipality of San Vito dei Normanni, a few kilometers away from the sea and surrounded by greenery, prestigious noble villa of about 1000 sq.m dating back to the 1700s surrounded by a large and luxuriant garden of about 2 hectares now available for sale.
The villa was donated in 1820 by Prince Dentice di Frasso to his daughter Marquise Dentice di Frasso Maria Marianna who was marrying Marquis Capece Minutolo, and was inhabited by Marquis Gerardo Capece Minutolo di Bugnano until 2014.
A long tree-lined avenue leads to the residence which is pread on two levels, ground floor and first one, in addition to a basement.
On the ground floor we are welcomed by an elegant portico, characterized by large arches, vaulted ceilings and an imposing wooden door with the noble coat of arms (the Lion) of the Capece Minutolo family at the top.
An elegant marble staircase dominates the center of the large entrance which connects the two levels, and both to the right and to the left there are numerous rooms characterized by high ceilings, ancient tiled floors typical of the time and characteristic ceilings with star, pavilion and barrel vaults.
Among the rooms on the ground floor, the large and bright living room with an elegant stone fireplace stands out.
On the upper level, the large and bright rooms are served by a panoramic terrace of about 150 sq.m which offers a beautiful view of green garden and the surrounding area.
The property is completed in the basement by a cellar with vaulted ceilings in exposed stone; in the garden, a large storage of about 109 sq.m and a tennis court.
Despite the central location, the villa enjoys exceptional privacy thanks to the large garden that surrounds it, being at the same time a few meters from all essential services and only 14 km from the nearest beaches on the Salento coast and the nature reserve of Torre Guaceto.
It is also 23 km from Brindisi and its airport, 60 km from Lecce and 100 km from Bari and its international airport.
