Casale della Rupe is a luxurious 5-bed property that has the most stunning views across the valley to the Sibillini Mountains. The property has been beautifully renovated and manages to strike the perfect balance between the contemporary and the traditional. There is a large pool, 2 hectares of lovely grounds, outbuildings, gated driveway and a double-garage.
The current owners, together with a team of architects and local artisans have painstakingly restored the property. Traditional materials, such as the original stone, tiling and oak sit beautifully alongside the more contemporary glass and stainless steel.
Modern building techniques have been employed to give the house all the luxury one would expect with modern living. There is underfloor heating throughout the property, double-glazing, wall-mounted vacuum system, data cabling to all of the rooms and of course wifi and satellite TV.
The external structure of the property has varying roof and floor levels (because it is built on a slope) but internally it is much simpler. There is a stunning stainless steel and glass staircase which connects the two levels. The clever design of the property means that (almost) every room has direct garden access.
There is a generous 470m2 of habitable space and the layout is as follows:
Entrance Hall - Large dual-aspect reception area, open fireplace and two antique double doors.
Drawing Room - Spacious, light and airy triple-aspect room, vaulted ceiling, open fireplace, numerous windows, two oak-framed glass double doors opening to the main terrace.

There is 2 hectares of land which is a combination of native woodland, meadow, orchard, lawns as well as a continuous running spring. There are also soft fruit shrubs, olive trees, ornamental trees, flowering shrubs, mature oaks and walnuts.
In the grounds there is an outbuilding that at present is a ruin but has planning permission and architectural drawings for conversion. There is also a shed/workshop.

The property faces SW and has breathtaking views over to the Sibillini Mountains. The property is located in the rural hamlet of Smerillo in the south of Le Marche. The region of Le Marche stretches for around 100 miles along the Adriatic coast however it’s the undulating hills and hill top villages of its interior where one really finds authentic Italy and La Dolce Vita.
The airports at Ancona and Pescara are within easy reach (both about 1h20mins drive) and Rome is 2.5hrs away.
