San Ianni is a rural farm estate, formerly a baronial hunting lodge, with terrific potential. It is set in a prominent location on a hilltop between two river valleys, with magnificent views over the Bay of Taranto and the mountains of Basilicata and Calabria. It would make a wonderful home, or a commercial or agricultural business opportunity.
Living space: The main farmhouse is approached by a 200m tarmac private drive, and is on two floors:
Upstairs: is around 72 m2 of living space, in good condition, with tiled floors, consisting of a kitchen, bedroom, living room and bathroom. In addition there is 30 m2 of terrace overlooking the hills and sea.
Downstairs: is further 65m2 of living space which will need refurbishment; a large kitchen, with traditional wood oven, a bedroom, and a further large room, currently a store, but which could be converted to a lovely living room. This part of the house retains many traditional features that could be preserved.
Outside: The house has a sizable garage, and there are a range animal stalls/chicken sheds/ pig pen and stores totalling a further 90 m2, all of which could be converted. There is a covered, open barn with room for parking a further four vehicles.
There are two further buildings: a two storey cottage adjacent to the house , traditionally used by the shepherd, consisting of two small rooms. On the driveway, around 100m from the house, is a 35 m2 garage and store. Both could be converted for use as accommodation to let.
The house sits within an estate of 13 ha approx. (31 acres), which is fields of grain, currently managed by a local farmer, the rest is woodland and maquis on the sides of your own private valley. There are also 60 olive trees and a range of other fruit trees.
The house has mains electricity, and mains water would be connected from the supply in the road, about 200m from the house. A septic tank would be added as a part of the refurbishments.
The entire estate consisting of the buildings and 13 ha of land is for sale.
