The original building was a ruin hidden among the brambles and brought back to its ancestral splendour in 2014. Formerly an ecclesiastical building, dating back to the 1700s – as the stone in the hall testifies – it’s been recently turned into a classy country home. The restoration was very meticulous, recovering for the walls all the original stones, to keep the look and atmosphere of past times. However, the house needed an upgrade to bring it to a higher standard to make it a nice and comfortable place where you can live and welcome people. With this target in their mind, the owners restored it according to the utmost building standards and using all the natural materials, that ensure a healthy and cozy life. The House was restored with a double target: living and renting. So, it’s been cleverly divided into 2 totally separated and private areas:
The net area of the family home is 151 sq.m., developing on 2 floors:
accessible both from the front and the back garden, you will enter an amazing 70 sq.m. living and dining room. This spacious area is all surrounded by windows on 3 walls, thus guaranteeing light all day. The choice of light colours for the walls, the floor and the wood beams, makes this space even brighter. The spacious kitchen will let you cook comfortably for all your friends, while the fireplace in the living area will give you moments of relax, chatting with your dearest, while having a glass of wine or a cup of tea. The 2 french doors will let you enjoy 2 different areas of the garden: the one on the western side, is an exit to the front garden, overlooking the Carpegna valley, where you can enjoy beautiful sunsets. The one on the eastern side is an exit to the back garden with a lovely wood pergola wrapped with jasmine, to make a natural shed. Here you can add a table with chairs for relaxing al-fresco dinners, enveloped by the fragrance of jasmine. On the same floor, there is a spacious bathroom with big shower and a double basin and a cellar to store your collection of precious Italian wines. The ground floor is directly connected to the accommodation area, so that you don’t have to get out all the times, to reach this part of the building.
Stepping up the staircase, you enter your full private world: the sleeping area. The master bedroom enjoys a big window overlooking the Carpegna Valley: just imagine opening your eyes in the morning and being enraptured by the green view of the valley stuck in front of you. The double bedroom and the single bedroom, on the other hand, face the Apsa valley, that for sure will give you equally charming views. On the same floor, there is a studio, which could be also used as an additional wardrobe and a spacious bathroom with bathtub and shower. The private house enjoys wood flooring and an underfloor heating, which will ensure you an optimal spread of heating. Wood is used in several corners of the house: for the flooring, shelves and many other details. This is a conscious choice, made to let you feel totally involved with the surrounding nature.
The Accommodation Area
The accommodation area was restored with the same high standards as the private home. The reception hall is a place where you’ll get back in time: one of the stones has an engraving showing the date of 1777, thus testifying that the original structure is at least 300 centuries old. From here, you have direct access to the breakfast room, which is also used as a small restaurant for your guests and all the other people, who’d like to taste the dishes of the typical cuisine of region Marche. The open-plan arrangement of the kitchen, will also give you the possibility to organize cooking classes, thus improving the range of services offered to your guests. In the summer, you can increase the number of seats, thanks to the terrace. Your guests will be amazed by the magic atmosphere of a dinner out as the sun goes down, disappearing behind the green valley. Each of the 3 bedrooms meant for rental enjoy a private entrance from the front garden. They are cozy and comfortable, furnished and decorated with the typical materials of the area, that make you feel part of the overall environment. The bedrooms are all en-suite. On the opposite side, for those who like even more privacy, there is a small apartment with kitchen and a double bedroom, all restored according to the same standards as the rest of the building. For the accommodation area, the heating system is with radiators and in each room you can regulate the temperature according to your needs. The whole building (private and accommodation areas) is characterized by wood beams and Belforte cotto tiles. The wired broadcasting reaches all the rooms, so that wherever you are, you can listen to some good, relaxing music. The current owners have already made all the settings for an alarm system, both perimetral and volumetric, but they have never completed it, because the area is so quiet and safe, that they decided to privilege the natural aspects of the environment and totally break with modernity.
The property is surrounded by a 2.000 sq.m. land of green grass, planted with lavender, jasmine, rosemary and evergreen trees, so that your garden is always offering you a view of luxuriant life. From the front garden, walking down to a lower level, you reach the pool area and as you turn your right, the immense panorama of the Apsa Valley opens wide in front of you and you’ll feel one with nature. The pool has an oval shape and it measures 3,5x5,5 metres. In this area, fully private, with no other houses in the surroundings, you will enjoy your best moments of relax or fun with friends in the summer. Just imagine bringing down a barbeque and having a party by the pool, that can last all day long, with music and dances and noone around except for wild nature!
The location of the house is extremely private. All around there are only the valleys, so you are surrounded by silence and the only sound you can hear, is that of birds singing. For those interested in renting the property, this is quite a convenient area, since from here tourists can visit many interesting places: first of all, in the town centre you can find a good Spa, since Macerata Feltria is well known for its thermal waters. For those interested in exploring region Marche, you are quite close to many other places rich of history, art and culture. The first one to be quoted is for sure Urbino, also known as the cradle of Reinassance, which fully preserves the architectural heritage of the period. The historic centre of Urbino is listed in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Urbania is also not far away, as well as Fossombrone and Acqualagna, famous for its high quality white truffles. From here, it is very easy to reach and visit also other interesting places: the Tuscan border is just 15 km away, as well as the border of region Emilia Romagna, where you can explore places like lovely San Leo with its castle. You’ll also have the possibility to “expatriate for one day” since the Republic of San Marino (the independent country inside Italy) is just 22 km
