Wake up, walk to the window and take a slow, deep breath, while staring at the green and unspoilt landscape of the countryside around Arcevia, in the Marche region.
This original farmhouse was completely renovated in 2007, and turned into a wonderful country residence, with 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and a living area that projects you into the past of the Marche countryside tradition, thanks to stones and woods preserved and recovered while renovating.
Looking at the irregular shape of the building, as well as at the use of both stones and bricks, it seems likely that the various wings of the house were built in different years. As it often happened in country houses in the past, as the family became larger, other rooms were built, to accommodate everyone.
This lovely farmhouse totally measures 260 sq.m. + a large portico and it develops over 2 floors:
Four big French windows are the connecting point between the external area and the rooms, also providing plenty of light into all spaces.
The most charming area is surely the classy living room, characterized by stone walls, wooden beams and cotto tiles on the ceiling. In this room, as in the rest of the house, big effort was made to preserve the original features as much as possible, including small niches and wooden lintels, which give the room an original taste.
The fireplace – located in the living room – was an essential element in old farmhouses, but also in the modern ones, because it allows you to slow down the pace of the day and dedicate quality time to family conversations.
The living room is directly connected to the dining room, which is adjoined to the spacious and fully equipped kitchen, which was custom built, in a classic style, to recall tradition. Also in the dining room there is a comfortable fireplace stove.
On the opposite side of the floor, there’s a spacious studio, very useful if you wish to work from home, while looking at the amazing panorama of the Marche’s rolling hills. Also the studio, as well as the living and dining room has an exit out to the pergola and garden.
The portico is really very big (over 55 sq.m.) and will allow you to spend precious moments outdoors, enjoying a glass of local wine, or for al-fresco dinners with your family and friends.
The grand staircase located in the living room, leads up to the first floor, which by the way, is also accessible via external staircase, typical of marchigiano farmhouses.
On the first floor, there are 3 very spacious bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. All rooms, feature the typical elements as stone walls – interrupted by white plaster to give a brighter look – wooden beams and cotto tiles. From all windows, the views are breathtaking.
The quality of the renovation is unquestionable: the roof is insulated to ensure perfect thermal insulation, the fixtures are made of wood, with thermal glasses and there are mosquito nets on all windows, which are very useful in summer. Thanks to the quality of the restoration, the house is cool in the summer and warm in winter.
The property enjoys a very comfortable garage of about 45 sq.m., where you can park your car and also store all your gardening tools, as well as your bikes, if you love biking in the beautiful countryside of region Marche.
The property sits on a 4.700 sq.m. mature garden – fully fenced – with cypresses, olive and fruit trees: can you imagine picking your organic fruit and eat it directly from the tree? It’s a privilege for a few.
In an elevated and panoramic position, there’s the wonderful 10x5 swimming pool (with salt system) with solarium and gazebo, so you can enjoy an aperitif or a lunch by the pool.
The view you can enjoy from the swimming pool is unsurpassable: 180° on the rolling green hills, which change color with each season and according to the crops.
The garden is flat, so it’s good also for your kids to play freely and safely.
The house is accessible via a short and always well maintained white road. The location is absolutely private, yet not at all isolated and the basic services are just 1 km away from home.
The first bigger town with more services and were you can enjoy an evening out is Arcevia, which is 6 kms away. In the surroundings there’s plenty of typical restaurants, where you can taste excellent local food and wine.
Life is very quiet here, and everything flows slowly. By the way, whenever you wish to spend a night out clubbing, a day by the beach or a luxury dinner out in a 3-Michelin star restaurant, Senigallia is just 30 min. away.
