Tenuta Scaloti is a splendid period villa located in the Valle della Cupa, in the heart of Salento, one of the most prestigious rural locations in the Lecce area. Born as a farmhouse in the sixteenth century, it was later transformed into a stately villa with an unmistakable neoclassical style from the end of the eighteenth century.
The restoration work was carried out by the architect Elio Resta.
Today Tenuta Scaloti is an elegant, suggestive but decidedly familiar residence, a place where you can stay in complete relaxation in the nature and tranquility of a property of over 15 hectares that can be further built. It is accessed through a long and suggestive avenue of over 300 meters flanked by tall pines and Mediterranean scrub until you reach an elegant sensory garden that surrounds the beautiful swimming pool.
On the 1st floor we find the master apartment of over 300 square meters, with 250 square meters of level terraces that dominate the property and give the guest a spectacular panoramic view of the surrounding countryside and the pool area.
The barrel vaults and the floors decorated in original mosaic make the different rooms of the house even more unique and precious
On the ground floor there are 5 very elegant double and twin rooms, of about 28 square meters with independent entrance, belonging to the original body of the structure where you can still breathe the atmosphere and history of the original farmhouse.
Different environments characterize each room furnished with refined solutions of great aesthetic and functional taste; all rooms also offer an outdoor area furnished for private use.
Two of the five rooms on the ground floor are communicating both with each other, through a retractable door, and with the main apartment through a suggestive internal staircase.
Also on the ground floor of the villa there is a gym and a large living room of over 150 square meters equipped with a professional kitchen of about 35 square meters with two bathrooms.
Detached from the main body of the historic residence there is another independent structure where there is a kitchen equipped with a furnished veranda and a bathroom with changing room for the swimming pool and an apartment/cottage called “Agrumeto” with private garden consisting of a living room, kitchen, bedroom bed and two bathrooms with a covered veranda of over 50 square meters.
The structure is enhanced by a Mediterranean garden of about 3000 square meters that surrounds the entire area around the 16 × 8 meter swimming pool with a large furnished solarium to ensure maximum comfort.
The property is renovated with high-level finishes, such as the certified windows for energy containment and the new electrical and water systems supported by the energy supplied by the photovoltaic panels for 10 kw, completely hidden from view, are positioned on the roof of the main building. .
The estate is sold fully furnished and equipped, ideal for those wishing to continue the profitable hospitality business and experience it as a private home at the same time; the possibility of creating additional independent villas is certainly a plus.
