Property Description

Classic stone-built olive worker’s cottage standing in two acres of land on an elevated position with superb views of the surrounding Ostuni countryside. The property is situated in a sought-after area on the Cisternino side of Ostuni and, although in excellent condition and perfect for the needs of the olive gatherers over the past 200 years or so, it obviously needs refurbishing and extending to meet modern-day needs (unless,of course, you fancy bathing in a wine vat and cooking your meals over an open fire).

The property can be taken back to its original stone finish and the extension finished in the same traditional stone. There are 117 olive trees, all of which have recently been pruned (and which sets them up for the next three or four years), 30 of them producing olives for eating, the rest for oil. We can provide you with full and free advice on how to look after the trees and harvest the fruit – or get someone to do it all for you.

Price: 75,000 euros. It will cost about 30,000-40,000 euros to convert the property into a magnificent two-bed, two-bath home.

We can introduce you to a first class builder who will take stage payments, but only when the stage work is completed to your satisfaction. He would also be happy to help and advise if you wanted to take some of the work on yourself.
