With far-reaching views over the rolling countryside and medieval hilltop villages, of the Arcevia region this beautiful modern home in the Italian sun has been cleverly restored and retains all it’s original character features and charm.
Designed to include lots of modern creature comforts, the house has been custom-built with a high level of craftsmanship and the careful design has ensured the house is incredibly spacious and light throughout. There is 340m2 habitable space over 2 floors, here’s the layout:
On the ground floor the magic begins as soon as you open the door. Through the hallway, you walk into the remarkable, double height 41m2 living area. You can see straight up to the stunning wooden beamed ceiling and the mezzanine running all around the upper floor. Light illuminates the room all day thanks to the numerous windows and the 3 French doors, leading out to the portico.
The portico serves as an important extra living space throughout the summer months, a perfect place to enjoy ‘Al Fresco’ dining or a cocktail at sunset.
The main living space is a large open plan area the layout designed to include a sitting room, dining table and a modern, fully equipped kitchen. There is a beautiful contrast between the original stones and the fresh white plastered walls in this room. Like the rest of the house, modernity compliments beautifully with tradition.
On the ground floor you can also find 2 spacious double bedrooms, both with en-suite bathroom and a guest bathroom.
On the first floor, you can walk around and look down from the mezzanine onto the main living area below. There is also another lounge with a desk and open window to those amazing views. A great place to read a book, do some work or listen to your favourite music.
On this floor there are also 2 spacious and bright double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms.
The First Apartment
With a connecting door to the main house, this apartment is fully independent and spacious. Of course, you could decide to permanently seal the door to separate the apartment or keep it open to make one single family home.
The second apartment, is smaller than the other, but still very spacious, it features an open-plan kitchen / living room with characteristic wood burner stove. Stepping down, there is a lovely master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and lovely arched window to the second portico, which is also accessible from the living area. Another lovely place to have breakfast in the morning or relax in the evening.
There is another double bedroom with en-suite bathroom. The French windows lead directly to the back garden, where there is another small portico.
Modernity is the main feature of this house also in terms of quality of finishes and techniques: the house is completely insulated and anti-seismic. The underfloor heating gives comfort and energy saving. All windows are double glazed and already provided with mosquito nets and wood shutters. Alarm system already set and working.
The property has been designed, so that you can enjoy all the areas at different times of the day: if you’re looking for sun, there’s plenty of space outside. If you’re looking for some shade, there are 3 porticos where you can sit down and relax. If you want to play ‘bocce’, (a distant cousin of bowling) the court is at the top of the garden.
Close to the pool and built into the ground, so that it doesn’t spoil the clean views, is an annex.
It is very comfortable and useful as a place to eat in the shade during pool parties, or simply to store your pool equipment. There is room for a sauna here if desired.
The mature garden measures about 8.750m2. It is fully fenced and with olivo cipressino planted all around the fence. There are about 20 olive trees planted in the garden, as well as a variety of fruit trees. Great for all those fruit salads and healthy juices.
The swimming pool is 10×5 with salt system and amazing views over the marchigiano hills.
The property has a gated drive and plenty of parking. It is conveniently located with easy access to the town and services.
Flexible Living and rental possibilities
As this property is so large and versatile, there are various wonderful combinations in which to use the space.
The house and apartments are easily joined and separated, so on one hand, the house can be kept completely open as a big private family home, or alternately, one or both apartments can be separated easily, and made completely independent and private.
This means one or both apartments can be kept separate and rented out, or you could even inhabit one of the spacious apartments and rent out the main house!
Based on the desirable location and high quality of the accommodation, it would be very easy to make a good rental income here by targeting a high-profile clientele.
