scent of Puglia
scent of home
The result of this fusion is a house designed for living in the present, for “living in your own time”, in other words, being aware of the strong bond that links us to nature and feeling the need to defend it by living in harmony with it. This awareness and sense of responsibility towards nature provided Studio Corsaro Architetti with the initial inspiration to create this house, which has become both a symbol of and a testament to our time.

A timeless corner of paradise in the Itria Valley

Casa ELLE is located in one of the most panoramic parts of Puglia, between Cisternino and Ostuni, in the heart of the Valle d’Itria; surrounded by olive groves and oak forests, it stands on the highest point of a hill from which you can gaze as far as the eye can see towards green horizons. The house is the epitome of a place where past and future meet, creating an “architecture of the present”. An architecture in which cultural roots and archaic local construction techniques, aimed at protecting humans from nature, blend with our more recent awareness of the need to protect and conserve the environment.
The bedrooms are located at either end of the house, all with en suite bathrooms. On one side, the main bedroom offers views out over the valley. The remaining bedrooms can be found on the other side, each with its own private garden. Finally, particular attention has been paid to the principles of sustainability through the use of active systems, high-efficiency installations that guarantee the reduction of energy consumption and passive systems – these include the shell made using natural materials, the use of stone for the external walls and floor, and wood for the internal walls, all of which ensure the building’s high level of compatibility with the environment.

The ideal place for a life in balance with nature

The living area features a large open space with kitchen, dining room, lounge and fireplace. Opening onto the landscape through a covered veranda, it boasts views of the pool, an ideal place for contemplating the world. The other side of the living area leads into a more intimate and discreet space that triggers moments of reflection. It consists of an internal courtyard enclosed between perimeter walls that, in the cooler months, provide protection from the northerly winds and create a micro climate that is ideal at any time of year. During the hotter months, the lush vegetation in this space located to the north offers coolness and shade to the outdoor living space, which includes a kitchen, barbecue, dining room, lounge and relaxation area among the trees and plants typical of the Mediterranean scrub.

We are selling Casa Elle off plan. It will be completed within 18 months from the purchase contract.

The off-plan purchase of Casa Elle is a unique and sought-after opportunity as, once it has been built, the purchase of properties such as this (in a panoramic position, unspoilt in terms of its natural environment, protected from any kind of pollution, noise or visual, with a unique and unrepeatable design, and in harmony with the landscape) will require a significantly higher financial outlay.
