This luxurious property is the quintessential Marchigiano farmhouse. Located in the heart of the Valle del Cesano with wonderful views across the valley and on Monte Catria, this elegant stone house has been immaculately restored throughout.
Extreme attention was paid in maintaining the original shape and materials for the exteriors, while internally the renowed architect who took care of the entire renovation, took on the challenging task of a minimal redecoration, with an unsurpassed final result.
This stunning property features an irregular and unique shape, probably as a result of subsequent extensions, necessary to accommodate more people as the family became larger over the years.
The overall surface of the main building is around 315 sq.m. + a basement of 145 sq.m., all arranged over 3 floors:
It’s where the living area is laid. From the main door, watched and protected by 2 precious white stone statues, you enter the bright entrance hall. To the right, there is a comfortable entryway room, where you can take off your coat and shoes; straight in front of you, thanks to a stone and glass arch, you can see the pure white dining room.
All the interiors where designed according to what the Italians would call a “vedo-non vedo” criterion, that lets your imagination fly free. From the dining room, through an opening, you can peek into the living room, while a wooden door is set on a glass wall, which makes you glimpse the kitchen.
The Boffi kitchen is a very modern one, fully equipped with latest generation Miele appliances and a fireplace. From here, you have direct exit out to the 2 pergolas, where you can dine or have an aperitif in the shade: basically, you can decide under what pergola you’d like to stay, according to the sun or the wind breeze.
The living room is grandiose, extremely bright thanks to the huge window that lets light come into all day. Looking up, the mezzanine that is a connection to the bedrooms on the upper floor, becomes a beautiful furnishing element, and gives the living room a majestic look. The parlor is directly connected to the studio, which is now used as a music room. Just imagine you sitting on the sofa, in front of the fireplace, while the piano is being played just for you.
On this floor there is also a guest bathroom with shower.
The whole floor is characterized by the use of pure white, sometimes interrupted by the original stones of the house, to create delicate contrasts. The floor is in industrial concrete, which harmonizes perfectly with the contemporary style of the interiors.
One of the most fascinating aspects of this floor is that each room is directly connected to the outdoor garden and the enchanting porticos, under which you can relax in peace.
A white metal staircase, which seems to slip between a stone wall and a plastered one, leads to the mezzanine above the living room.
From here, you are connected to the 3 double bedrooms: 2 of them, share a wet room. From both bedrooms, you can enjoy stunning views over the rolling hills of Marche.
The master bedroom is the dream of all those who love to take refuge in a very private luxury alcove. The room is extremely spacious, overlooking the countryside and the medieval village. Obviously the bathroom is en-suite, and has both a huge shower and a bathtub, located under a large window, to enjoy the beautiful landscapes of Le Marche, even during a relaxing bath. The walk-in closet is perfectly implemented with the room and is extremely spacious.
A French door leads out to the small private terrace, where you can sit in the morning, before getting back in touch with the world and everyday life.
This room is highly computerized: the door is armored, lockable with combination and there’s an air-con system. Thanks to the highly advanced home automation system, from here you can control the whole house in terms of openings, lights, cameras and more.
The first floor is accessible also from an external staircase.
As for the ground floor, the pure white makes it the perfect canva to decorate and furnish it as you like. Unlike the ground floor, here a warm wooden floor was opted for.
The basement consists of a huge garage, with all technical devices and tanks that let the house work productively and safely, with no risk to run out of something.
The house was designed since the beginning to have all the technologies and comforts and nothing has been overlooked. Therefore the water is connected to the mains, but also a well and a storage tank are provided; the LPG system goes with an extremely large tank and has recently been replaced with a large self-charging pellet boiler. The system powers the underfloor heating system, that goes throughout the house.
To ensure maximum security, the doors are armored and there is an alarm system with video surveillance.
The property enjoys 2 annexes: the bigger one (90 sq.m.), is fully restored. Its shape follows that of the hill and features big glazed walls, to let you enjoy the beautiful panorama of the Cesano Valley. The dependance is perfect to make your own studio – to work in peace – as well as a hobby room.
The other outbuilding measures about 70 sq.m. and it needs full restoration.
The Garden & The Land
This superb property goes with over 7 hectares land, fully fenced. The land is planted with olive trees, cypresses, ancient oaks and other native species. A person is taking care of the whole land, so that it always looks pretty and well maintained.
The garden surrounding the house, is mature, well-kept and accessible via a stone staircase, so that the house – that stands on top – looks even more majestic. All around cypresses, give the garden an elegant allure. Useless to say, the garden was designed by a landscape designer.
On the hill edge, the bean shaped panoramic pool will take your breath away. It perfectly follows the outline of the hill and it is an infinity pool with cascade, so that when you are inside and lean on the edge, overlooking the valley, you feel part of a beautiful painting.
Thanks to the extremely private location, the extension and conformation of the land, this is a perfect property also if you have horses.
Just 5 minutes from the charming village of Pergola this stunning property is set on top of a hill in a completely dominant position with 360° views over Monte Catria, the Cesano Valley and the Marchigiano rolling hills. The property is easily accessible via a secondary and quiet paved road, that leads to the gated entry.
In Pergola you can find all services for your daily life, including schools, cinema and theatre. And when you want to party a little bit more or enjoy the coastal life, in 45min you can get to Fano.
Pergola has a historical, cultural, folkloristic, food and wine abundance that you can see and taste.
