This fully restored property comprising an original farmhouse and a converted former barn offers extensive accommodation in Marche. The restoration of the farmhouse has been achieved with paramount attention to detail retaining all the original features which accentuate the “time-stood-still” feel of the building. On the ground floor there is a formal entrance located beneath the original external staircase leading to a spacious open plan living room and a formal dining room. Here one can really appreciate the superb quality of the restoration, the ambience is warm, stylish and very comfortable, doubly enhanced with the addition of a traditional open fireplace. The space is light and airy and it is almost impossible to imagine that this was the original animal stall if it weren’t for the carefully retained features like the terracotta brick patterned floor, brick vaulted ceilings, brick columns and an intriguing hatch in the ceiling which would have originally been used by the farmer to access the animal stalls without having to go outside. This is a truly luxurious space cleverly designed to still show its once humble origins. Beyond a new open staircase there is a fully fitted “country style” wooden kitchen, a breakfast room and downstairs cloakroom.
On the first floor the stairs open onto an attractive landing-living room with a further open fireplace. There are two spacious double bedrooms, a single bedroom as well as two bathrooms and a study. This floor shows the same care and attention to detail in its renovation. There is also a large attic space.
There is a large, well maintained and well thought out planted garden enclosed by fencing. Gates and a private gravelled drive lead to the main house, converted barn and a carport.
The detached barn has been converted using all traditional materials but the interiors offer an open plan contemporary space with a spacious living/dining room, fully equipped kitchen, 2 bedrooms, walk-in wardrobe and 2 bathrooms one with jacuzzi. This is a wonderful self contained annex for guests.
This property in Le Marche for sale enjoys good views of the surrounding countryside whilst being quite close to a major town steeped in Roman and pre Romanic history where it is possible to find good shopping, theatre, the arts and restaurant. The Adriatic coast and its lively resorts and sandy beaches are a further 6 kilometres distant.
This Marche property offers not only the possibility of a stylish family home but also has excellent potential for business and income.
