This lovingly restored farmhouse is situated in an idyllic quintessential location, with 180° view, among the gentle rolling hills of Marche Region.
Placed just a few steps away from San Ginesio – the Balcony of the Sibillini Mountains – this once dilapidated property has been brought back to life by its current owners. Whilst endeavoring to maintain the authenticity of the original farmhouse, much attention was paid to create spacious, luminous and comfortable spaces.
With its main building, spacious garage and panoramic pool, this is the utterly perfect family villa.
Access to the villa is via the most romantic setting you can imagine in an Italian villa: a stone arch leads you to a formal Italian garden with sitting area and then to the main entrance of the house.
The house offers approx. 260 sq.m. of floor-space over 3 floors:
A corridor leads you to the very spacious and bright living room with dining area. This room features several windows and a French window connecting to the garden and pool area. A lovely and working fireplace, provides heat and a cozy atmosphere, to sit down for a chat or read a book in front of the fire.
The fully equipped Boffi kitchen is quite big, perfect to prepare tasty meals for your guests. It is connected – via a French window – to the large portico, where you can set up an outside sitting area or place a table to dine out in the cool evening breeze.
On this floor there’s also a guest bathroom as well as a useful storage.
The original staircase was retained too: once leading to the farmer’s apartment (on the ground floor there used to be the stables only), now it houses the sleeping area, with a spacious master bedroom with en-suite bathroom with tub and other 2 double bedrooms, which share a bathroom with shower.
From all windows, the view is beautiful, especially from the master bedroom, which overlooks the swimming pool and the marchigiano rolling hills, stretching onto Monte Conero along the coast – which is visible during clear days.
Once the attic, it is now fully restored and comprises 2 bathrooms (one with Jacuzzi) and 2 spacious rooms, that you can rearrange as a studio, living room or additional bedrooms.
The house was restored to the highest standards, with special care for all anti-seismic construction criteria, which make the building very solid.
From a stylistic point of view, the facade is characterized by an alternation of local stones and bricks. Internally the terracotta tiles and the wooden beams for the ceilings have been reused.
The annex is a super useful garage of 90 sq.m. to park a few cars and/or store all your tools. You may also apply to convert it into an additional accommodation for guests, a SPA, gym or a Yoga shala.
The property sits on a spacious and mature garden, and it is surrounded by 4 hectares of agricultural land, perfect to be cultivated with profits, thanks to its south exposure.
The large portico, covering two sides of the house, makes the garden feel like an extension of the house. From here you get to the pool, with gazebo and BBQ area, where you can enjoy amazing pool parties with your family and friends. The pool is of an exceptionally good size (15x4m) if you like swimming, and not just dive in to cool off.
The garden is mainly flat and it features olive trees, figs and other fruit trees. You also have plenty of space to create your own vegetable garden and eat healthy, organic food.
The formal Italian garden was designed by a landscape architect and is bordered by box hedges and two pomegranate trees. The sitting area makes it a more relaxed space, where you can meditate or find some inspiration.
The location of the property is truly unique, just 3 kms from the medieval town of San Ginesio, also known as “The Balcony of the Sibillini Mountains” for its privileged view of the mountain range. The property is accessed via a well kept paved road.
From the property you can enjoy an amazing view of the typical Marche landscapes: rolling hills colored like a patchwork of different colors, hilltop medieval towns, and – during clear days – the view reaches up to Monte Conero – the famous coastal promontory overlooking Ancona.
San Ginesio is officially listed among the “Most Beautiful Villages in Italy”, and it’s perfectly understandable, being set between the coast and the mountains, with beautiful views from its promenade and with an admirable architectural style.
