This 4-bed farmhouse has been recently extensively renovated by its architect owner using only high-quality materials and workmanship. He has created a home with well-proportioned, welcoming living spaces, an enormous pool and large veranda, both or which have stunning panoramic views. San Ginesio is a few minutes away and airports, ski resorts and beaches are all within easy reach.
Splendidly restored, this beautiful farmhouse is both sophisticated and stylish. The beautiful terracotta tiles and ancient stones have been retained and original features reinstalled. The masonry work and wooden beams are particularly eye catching. The house has contemporary lighting throughout and a particularly beautiful family kitchen. The bathrooms are smart and fully equipped with top of the range facilities.
The house is easily accessible and has a private driveway. Predominantly south-facing, the wonderful views extend down the valley to the Sibillini mountains beyond.

The ground Floor
The farmhouse is on two floors, the main entrance is on the north side of the building. From the entrance hall, there is access to a stunning internal staircase built with "pietra serena", (a blueish sandstone), these lead upstairs to the bedrooms. The entrance hall opens to:
The beautiful dining area has a dual-aspect fireplace which opens two ways and heats both the dining room and the living room next door. The kitchen is beautifully designed, modern, spacious and fully equipped with a marble topped central island, and there is a separate laundry/utility room.
All the primary rooms on the ground - living room, kitchen, study and wellness area are equipped with French windows and windows that lead to the large veranda. An important space that serves as an outdoor living and dining area in the summer season. The veranda has incredible views!
The living room is a versatile space that is divided into two joined, yet distinct areas. Also, on this floor leading from the kitchen are the study and a wellness area, consisting of a small gym and a room which would make a great sauna. There is a guest bathroom and a storage room with external access.
The sleeping area consists of two bedrooms with en suite bathroom with shower and wardrobe, plus two other double rooms with wardrobe and access to a family bathroom with bathtub. The rooms are well proportioned, and the bathrooms a delight. Again, there are amazing views to behold!
The property sits on a plot of 4.397m2 (just over an acre) which is planted with native tree species. It has an enormous swimming pool (18 x 5m) from where panoramic, far reaching views can be enjoyed with a sense of privacy.
There is a child’s football pitch, a driveway and generous parking for at least 5 or 6 cars.
There is also an annex that was part of the old farmhouse which has been demolished. This could easily be rebuilt with the possibility of creating a further 70 sqm housing unit. Ideal as a holiday let or workshop perhaps?
The Recent Rebuild
The farmhouse has been rebuilt in full compliance with the safety standards of residential buildings, both as regards the structure and the plant engineering works. It has been reconstructed on a solid foundation ventilated and insulated from the ground, the main structure, the floors, the external walls and the roof all equipped with thermal insulation; the load-bearing walls reconstructed using the old building material stones of the original farmhouse, as was the ancient terracotta for the floors so that the dwelling did not lose its original character typical of the local rural architecture. High technology features throughout.
Situated in a quiet spot, the property is just a few minutes’ drive to the medieval, historic centre of San Ginesio, which was recently given the "Bandiera Arancione" award, recognising it as one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. San Ginesio has great shops, restaurants, bars and even a night club and theatre, if you fancy a bit of opera. In fact, this whole area is dotted with charismatic medieval towns packed with historic art, abbeys and castles.
The Sibillini National Park is nearby:
Measuring 276 square miles (714 square kilometres)
The house overlooks the Sibillini Mountains range where ten peaks soar above 6,560 feet (2,000 meters), the highest being Mount Vettore, which tops out at 8,123 feet (2,476 meters).
The park is home to 1,800 plant species and when the skiing season is over, these same slopes burst into a riot of colour with a wild bouquet of mountain flowers including edelweiss, pasqueflowers, martagon lilies, bearberries, and various orchids.
Animal life includes wolves and wild mountain cats as well as prickly porcupines. Roe deer have recently been reintroduced. Golden eagles, peregrine falcons, eagles, owls, goshawks, snow finches, and sparrow hawks fill the skies.
If you enjoy adventure sports, mountain biking, horseback riding, hang gliding, paragliding, and climbing are all popular activities here
Activities throughout the seasons
Winters in the mountains are cold and snowy yet beautiful, especially to cross-country skiers and other winter sport enthusiasts. From the farmhouse, it’s only around 20 minutes by car to the ski lifts. You might also like to take a dip in one of the hot mountain springs?
During the summer, in just 45 minutes you can be at the Adriatic coast, with its long, straight, sandy beaches. Alternately, enjoy wild swimming in the fabulous ‘Lago di Fiastra’ a freshwater lake nearby, with cold, clear water and fresh breezes much appreciated when summer temperatures climb into the high 30s! The house is ideally placed to enjoy it all.
Dining locally is still quite reasonably priced, and a smorgasbord of cured meats is always on offer. Other tasty local fare includes apples, honey, truffles, mushrooms, chestnuts, chickpeas, and vin cotto (cooked wine.)
