New-build Italian farmhouse

housetohome takes a tour around this Italian farmhouse to see the haven of classic design and modern style

A stylish linear garden design gives the courtyard a grand feel. Typical of any Italian fortified farmhouse (or masseria), the living quarters and courtyard are protected by high walls.

A large rustic table in the centre of the kitchen gives the space a laid-back, relaxed feel, while other wooden touches, such as the bowl and units, add warmth to the pale backdrop. Find a similar table at French Finds. (opens in new tab)

Full-length curtains take the place of traditional shutters to give the bedroom a softer, more relaxed feel. A stunning bateau bath at the end of the four-poster bed creates a dramatic statement and transforms the room into a luxurious retreat.
