In the shadow of a 13th century medieval tower, amids the rolling hills of Le Marche, this tastefully restored charming house in an idyllic setting is a real gem for who appreciates the calm and the fresh air of the countryside, without being too isolated as the city of San Severino Marche is at only 8 km (shops, restaurants, bars, supermarkets, weekly market, hospital....).
We are at 30-60min. drive from the beaches, but we are also surrounded by the many typical Italian hilltop villages, and it can be a starting point to the art cities such as Macerata, Fabriano, Urbino, Perugia, Assisi, Spello.... More in the neighbourhood (15-20 min), you have the aquapark Verde Azzurro, the lake, the natural reserve of Canfaito & Monte San Vicino, Elcito...
The house has been restored between 2008-12 according to the latest earthquake regulations, keeping some original elements, but it is on the other hand also provided with all modern comfort such as internet, telephone line, satellite TV, central heating on all floors, double glazed windows, new isolated roof, new electricity and plumbing, new floors.
On the garden level, you find the newly added kitchen (fully equipped), 4 x 6 m; a small storage room with also the washing machine and boiler for the central heating; a toilet with hand washer; the sitting area with wood stove, and the dining area with an extendable table (up to 3 m) and a big window opening on the main terrace; and at last another room used actually as a storage (could be converted in another bedroom etc).
On the street level, you find the main entrance with original front door; the master bedroom with the original wood and stone ceiling, ensuite dressing and bathroom (bath, shower, toilet, lavabo, cupboard). There is also a large study/library with open wooden ceiling and a French window opening on a smaller terrace annex parking place, an ideal second reception room or large bedroom if necessary.
On the upper floor, there are 2 bedrooms, 1 with double bed and visible wooden ceiling; the other with 3 single bed (bunk beds); a bathroom with lavabo, shower, toilet and a small attic.
The outbuilding (new, but also in the rustic style), is used as a tool shed. Next to it, a covered terrace and a covered wood storage with an original small niche.
The garden has different levels, with 200 year old oaks, accasias, figtree etc providing enough shadow in hot Summer days. There are also many flowers and perrenials.
The house is sold completely furnished.
Ancona airport (Ryanair) is at 50 km.
We speak Dutch, French, English, German and Italian and are the Belgian owners for now.
Remarks : the pictures can not do completely justice to the caracter and atmosphere of the property.
in case that the buyers would like to put the house for rent during some months, we would be willing to rent it back for a certain time if that makes it easier for the future owners.
