Luxury Country House in Marche - Italy
This beautifully refurbished watermill set in 4.5 hectares land is a unique property offering tranquillity and privacy, 3 kms away from the town centre of Cupramontana, in the heart of Le Marche region, near Tuscany and Umbria.
The house is a 1800s stone watermill fully restored retaining many of the original mill features remaining.
It is currently managed as a B&B with very good profits: a part of the building is the owners’ private home. An external staircase leads to the rental bedrooms, thus guaranteeing full privacy both to the owners and the guests.
The main house is 330 square meters and it comprises of 3 floors:
Lower Ground Floor:
kitchen, sitting and dining areas all in an open plan room (ex-mill), fireplace and separate laundry room. Two entrance doors: one into the vineyard and one onto the owners’ private patio. This is the owners’ private area.
2 bedrooms each with private bathroom, kitchen, large dining room (used for the B&B) and a living room. This floor connects to the lower floor via an internal staircase.
4 bedrooms each with private bathroom and a large communal guest lounge. The access to this floor is via an external staircase and balcony which gives guests full privacy.
All rooms have wonderful views all around the property and on the vineyards, which change colours every month, giving you beautiful visions of the Le Marche countryside.
Full gas central heating and fireplace that also heats the radiators throughout the house.
The property enjoys 2 annexes: the biggest one is a stone building of about 35 sq.m. It has a new roof and needs to be restored internally. You can make a small studio-flat or an office, or just leave it as a useful storage.
The other annex is smaller and placed on the opposite side: it would be perfect as a pool clubhouse.
The property sits on 4.5 hectares of agricultural land, including a vineyard producing the local Verdicchio white wine, various fruit trees and a private car park.
The agricultural land is rented to local farmers, thus guaranteeing an additional income and – most important – you have someone who takes care of the big plot of land.
The property is located in lovely countryside with no near neighbours but not too far from a non busy road, 5 minutes from the medieval village of Cupramontana with shops and restaurants, 25 minutes from Ancona airport and 40 minutes from the Adriatic sea. There are several local attractions like the Frasassi Caves, national parks, lakes and also wineries producing both white and red wines.
You can also reach the beautiful towns of Assisi in Umbria (90 km), Gubbio (70 km) and also nearby Tuscany and Rome in 3 hours.
