Some places can be whatever you want. This house, laying in a sunny area and surrounded by the vineyards of Lacrima di Morro d’Alba in region Marche, is one of those places.
Thanks to its location close to all services, with its 8 bedrooms, 2 separate apartments, mature gardens and a wonderful 20×6 swimming pool, this property could be the perfect private retreat for your family or could be managed as a rental property for high-end summer rentals.
The total area of the main building is about 430 sq.m. on 4 floors:
On the ground floor develops the big private apartment, equipped will all comforts. As you enter, you’ll be immediately embraced by the luminous and spacious living room with fireplace: the big windows let plenty of light get into the room and the white travertino stones used for the flooring reflect the light all around.
From here, you have direct access to the dining room and the kitchen: all these areas are completely separate from each other, but no doors have been used to let light and fresh air circulate.
Both the dining room and the kitchen feature big windows, so that you can enjoy the beautiful panorama of the green rolling hills sloping all the way down to the Lacrima di Morro D’Alba vineyards, which change colour every season.
The kitchen is fully equipped with all you may need to cook for your family and friends: spacious, with a central island and fireplace that you can use to grill meat or make bruschettas.
Still on the ground floor, there is a guest bathroom.
All rooms enjoy french windows, leading directly out to different areas: from the kitchen and living room, you can get out to the garden and pool area; the kitchen is also directly connected to the big portico, where you can enjoy al-fresco dinners; opposite the main entrance, another french window leads out to the external space at the back of the house, where it is possible to build a winter garden – there are already all permissions to do it.
Stepping up the travertino staircase, you can reach the sleeping area with its 5 bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. All bedrooms are spacious, comfortable and directly illuminated. All bathrooms enjoy a shower.
The master bedroom is special as it develops on an area of about 44 sq.m. plus a mezzanine: once you close the door behind your back, you’ll be in your fully private retreat and there will be nothing else you’ll need from the external world.
The master bedroom area is composed of a small sitting room with views over the garden and the vineyards, a bedroom, a big step-in closet and a bathroom with bathtub and emotional shower. A staircase is leading up to the mezzanine, that you can use as a reading room, private studio or you can set up a small private gym.
The second floor, on the other hand, is magic for your kids: an open-plan space, that can be turned into their playroom, where they can build enchanted worlds with Legos or fight as valiant knights against dragons. On this floor there is also a bathroom and, separately, a shower, so the room could be also used as an additional bedroom.
The basement is composed of a very spacious room, that could be used as a hobby room, taverna for dinners with many guests, parties or whatever may be comfortable to you.
The basement also enjoys a technical room and a laundry room.
The whole house has been renovated in an excellent way, according to the latest anti-seismic regulations and to the latest techniques in terms of energy saving. The whole house enjoys an underfloor heating, to guarantee maximum comfort.
The roof is insulated, there is a boiler powered by solar panels for the production of domestic hot water.
The water supply is provided via mains water and this is a great plus. The well is currently used as a chlorine decanting tank, to then drain the water into the fields.
The property already has an alarm system, while there are all the settings for home automation.
The Independent Apartment
On the ground floor of the main building, there is also an apartment with independent entrance. It is composed of an open-plan kitchen/living room, a double bedroom and a bathroom.
It is very functional when you have guests but you want to keep your own privacy in the house. On the other hand, it could be also rented out to tourists.
This magnificent property, also enjoys an outbuilding, which was restored as a dependance for guests, composed of an open-plan kitchen/living room, a double bedroom and a bathroom.
While the main house was restored in a traditional way, but giving a feeling of modern design, the annex is definitely more traditional. The classical look was obtained by the use of natural wood beams, cotto tiles and other features, that give the space a warm look of past times.
Also the annex, as the independent apartment, could be easily used for rentals.
On the opposite side of the annex, there is a pizza oven and a big space where a bathroom and showers for the pool have been built. The big room, which is now used as a storage for sunbeds and other pool equipment, could be easily turned into a sauna.
This is definitely a home for those who want to pamper themselves!
The Garden and The Pool
The buildings sit on a 5.000 sq.m. mature garden with some olive and fruit trees. Also a small vegetable garden has been made, so that you can eat the products of the land and be sure there are no chemicals on them. This is the real organic food.
Close to the annex there is a huge 20×6 swimming pool with roman steps, meant for those who like going for a proper swim. It is an infinity pool and it overlooks the gentle rolling hills and the vineyards. The paving all around the pool, will let you place your sunbeds comfortably and have a sunbath. At the back of the pool there is a pool lounge, where you can sit with your friends under the shadow of a tent and drink an ice-cold cocktail or a glass of cool wine.
And when the sun goes down, nothing is more romantic than an apertif on the canilevered terrace overlooking the sweet panorama.
Last but not least, the property enjoys a big garage (about 100 sq.m.) and on top of it there is the possibility to park additional cars.
Morro D’Alba is a small hilltop town in the province of Ancona, placed amongst the gentle rolling hills between the valleys of rivers Misa and Esino. Just 10km as the crow flies from the coast, the town sits between the ‘velvet beach’ of Senigallia and the beautiful town of Jesi with its 14th century castle walls.
You’ll never get bored in Morro D’Alba and surroundings: you can explore the areas, go to wine tastings in the numerous wineries spread all around the territory. From here you can easily and quickly reach both the sandy beaches of Senigallia and the mountains for some hiking or biking. Especially in the summer, the town calendar is rich of events, in the first place the Festival of Lacrima di Morro d’Alba, dedicated to the red wine, typical from this area.
The location of this property is excellent as it is extremely close to a paved road, that leads you directly to town. Morro D’Alba and all its services are just 3,5 kms away. At the same time, once you close the gate, you are in your own haven, away from prying eyes and the noise of civilization.
