Traditional Farmhouse with Modern Comforts in Urbania, Le Marche
If you are looking for a traditional farmhouse, recently renovated in a contemporary style and with all modern comforts, you don’t need to look any further, as you’ve found it in Urbania, Le Marche.
This property, hidden among the rolling hills of the Marche, will reveal itself in all its beauty, made of history and contrasts, of ancient stones hundreds of years old and modern materials.
The house was fully and carefully restored in 2018, so it’s a property ready to move into. The restoration was carried out in full respect of the Marche architectural tradition, adding – where possible – modern details: the windows of the living area have been enlarged, allowing the rooms to enjoy as much light as possible; for the floorings, they have opted for a contrast among original cotto tiles for the living room, micro concrete for the kitchen and dining room and wood for the bedrooms. All this is mixed with enchanting harmony.
The property consists of a building in traditional Marchigiano style: the oldest part is built with local stones, the other part is plastered.
The whole building measures about 225 sq.m. an it is divided into 2 separate apartments: the main one is fully finished and it features an open-plan lounge, dining room and kitchen, all very bright and developing on different levels. On the first floor, there are 2 double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and 2 bedrooms with private bathrooms with shower and basin. These two bedrooms share an external toilet. The colors chosen for the finishes are clear, and this means that the light reverberation makes the rooms even brighter. Moreover, with this white canva, it was also possible to use design elements to create contrasts and make each room unique and lively.
The second apartment is smaller and could be used as an apartment for guests or could also be arranged as a studio, so you can work in the tranquility of the countryside and get inspiration from nature. This part of the property is structurally restored and it needs only the internal finishes, letting you decorate it as you like.
The exterior boasts a beautiful, modern pergola, ideal for staying cool, dining “al fresco” and appreciating the starry sky at night.
The house is self-sustaining. The 6kW photo voltaic system guarantees hot water, gives energy to the heating pumps for the heating and cooling of the rooms, powers the electric kitchen and underfloor heating in the bathrooms.
It is conveniently connected to the mains water. A septic tank has been set for the drainage.
The property enjoys a stone-built annex. It is very useful to store the pool and gardening tools, as well as wood for the stove set in the living room.
Beside the annex, there’s a BBQ, excellent to grill meat or vegetables during your al-fresco dinners.
The garden and lawn are young and well-maintained, decorated with lavender, rosemary and other species of local trees and flowers. It is all flat – meaning more enjoyable – and measures about 3.000 sq.m.
In a super panoramic position, there’s a total infinity pool (with salt system) measuring 4x10m, built with dark grey stone slabs, giving it a color that matches perfectly with the surrounding landscape.
The pool area enjoys a large terrace with pergola, shower and under-floor technical room.
In this part of northern Marche, nature is luxuriant and uncontaminated. You can breathe clean air, rich in oxygen for the presence of woods, and the countryside is still pristine, which is rare in other areas of Marche and Italy. You will better understand this when, on summer nights, thanks to the absence of city-lights pollution, you will be able to admire splendidly starred skies and fireflies.
