Bright and spacious property of an historical character, recently renovated with fine finishes (restored historic floors, parquet, exposed stone walls and plastered walls, 2 perfectly functioning fireplaces) with panoramic views of the main square of the city, Piazza Aldo Moro. The first nucleus of the palace was built in 1700 and is part of the Ducal palace of Casamassima originally belonging to the powerful Caracciolo family, later an ecclesiastical property until 1986. The property, in fact, in its current configuration is the result of an architectural stratification of various portions of outbuildings.

Inside, historical architectural elements have been preserved such as some majolica for the floors, the grooves and wells for collecting water and the hooks used to hang and store food in the cellar.

The house consists of 8 rooms, kitchen and two bathrooms. Equipped with two terraces, one of which an overlooks the town centre with good views.

The real estate unit is spread over several levels, possibly divisible into 2 distinct housing units.

Excellent for real estate investment aimed at the construction of a family home / b & b or holiday home.

The property is located in the heart of Casamassima, a town just 15 km from the city of Bari and 30 km from Bari Karol Wojtyla International Airport. The first nucleus of the city of Casamassima dates back to Roman times. The ancient village is medieval, developed from the 8th century around a Norman tower which was later transformed into a castle. For centuries dominated alternately by the fiefdoms of Conversano and Acquaviva delle Fonti. The town obtained the title of Paese Azzuro, Blue Country, when, in the second half of 1600s, the Duke Odoardo Vaaz, of Jewish origins, ordered with an ordinance the painting of the building, of the monuments and of the churches by adding the blue color to the quick lime, probably sulphate copper in order to fight the plague epidemic that was spreading. Having avoided the contagion, the typical color has remained a characteristic feature of the historic center and is still visible on many buildings.

Compared to destinations leaning more towards tourism, Casamassima maintains the features of authenticity and tradition and offers a unique opportunity to dive into the typical Apulian lifestyle. However, it is only 20 km from the Adriatic coast and about 30 km from some of the main destinations in Puglia: Polignano a Mare, Alberobello and the Grotte di Castellana.
