Property description
Christie's International Real Estate offers for sale a unique property of its kind, Palazzo Accolti Gil. The building located in the city of Conversano, in the south-eastern territory of the province of Bari and about 5 km from the sea, is located in the highest part of the country, near the Aragonese Castle and the cathedral. The building was built in 1607 by Biagio Accolti on land made available by Caterina Acquaviva d'Aragona, mother of the famous Guercio di Puglia, Giangirolamo Acquaviva and was restored in 1777 under the guidance of the famous architect Giuseppe Gimma who embellished the facade and the interiors with the finishes that we currently find as spectacular frescoes showing exotic flora and fauna immersed in classic landscapes.
The building is spread over three levels. In the cellars, with a 5 meter high barrel vault, there was the oil mill, of which the original stone bases of the remaining millstones testify to its existence.
The first floor, or noble floor, has a series of lounges with frescoed ceilings, still in excellent condition, which reveal the magnificence that the building once enjoyed.
The second floor is divided into various apartments of different sizes with terraces from which it is possible to enjoy a panoramic view over the roofs of the town, the rose window of the cathedral and the main tower of the Aragonese Castle.
