Luxury Country House in Marche - Italy
Attention to details is the most impressive feature of this farmhouse on the rolling hills of the Marche. Equidistant from the coast and the mountains, it is the prefect buen retiro, to escape the busy city life and hide in the unspoilt nature.
The house, renovated according to the Marche’s rural architecture, develops over 485 sq.m. and it is perfect as a private home, where you can invite many friends for the holidays: 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and a large living space, will allow you to stay all comfortably.
The house is built with bricks typical of the area and 2 nice chimneys stand out on the roof. The 3 floors are composed as follows:
The main entrance is via the large portico with pizza oven, that overlooks the swimming pool. This is one of the 7 large French windows, which give all the rooms on the ground floor a great brightness.
The kitchen and dining room are a large open-plan, directly connected to the porch. The kitchen is bespoke and built with high quality materials.
From here you access – via a large arch – the double living room, which features a big fireplace, which makes the room very cozy and welcoming. A special place to sit and relax with a good book.
A cellar and a guest bathroom are also located on this floor.
From an architectural point of view, the renovation was carried out keeping the original materials as much as possible: tiles on the ceilings, as well as wooden beams with imperfect and yet so fascinating shapes.
For the walls it was decided to keep the exposed bricks, alternating them with white plastered walls, in order to lighten the ambience and give higher brightness.
Upstairs there are 4 large and wonderful bedrooms, all with spectacular views of the Marche rolling hills, cultivated with wheat and sunflowers. All bedrooms, have an en-suite bathroom and step-in closet.
On this floor, there is also a large living area with stove fireplace, where you can relax aside.
Also for this plan, the imperative is: tradition. We therefore find the elements of the lower floor, such as wooden beams, terracotta tiles, and bricks.
The second floor is an attic, which can be used as a study, additional living area or you may even set up a fifth bedroom. There is also ample storage space on both floors.
In front of the portico, there’s a large underground storage area, with laundry and toilet facilities. It is very useful to keep all your gardening tools and pool equipment.
On top, a terrace has been made, where you can relax while enjoying amazing views.
This amazing property is surrounded by a wonderful garden – fully fenced – measuring 1 hectare and featuring 25 olive trees, fig trees, mulberry trees, walnut trees, pear trees and tall cypresses creating shady areas that you can enjoy on hot days.
The swimming pool is uncommonly big (18 x 4m), perfect if you like swimming, thanks to its long shape, with an outdoor shower and a further raised marble terrace, a place to relax and enjoy the unique landscapes of region Marche.
The area all around the pool and under the portico, is paved with beautiful, white travertine.
A large parking area, can fit a number of cars.
This stunning property is perfectly located – you have all the privacy you need and it is still not too far from the historic centre of Loro Piceno (5kms). The nearby mountains and the sea will provide you the necessary ‘cool downs’ during the summer. In winter the nearby ski resorts, only 40 minutes away, are an added bonus. Ancona Airport is an hour’s drive, with flights to London, Bruxelles, Monaco.
Being the position quite secluded, peace and unspoilt views are guaranteed.
Loro Piceno is located on the top of a slightly sloping hill, in an area between Macerata and San Ginesio, south the Fiastra stream. The historical center has remained almost untouched, thus very charming.
The Brunforte castle, belonging to the Farfensi family, located on the highest part of the town, characterizes the history of Loro, whose name would seem to be linked to laurel and its castle (Castrum Lauri).
Loro Piceno is the home of Vino Cotto (literally cooked wine): this is also confirmed by the fact that in the noble and manorial palaces that flank the characteristic streets of the town, an interesting architecture has developed in function of the grape pressing and boiling of the must in the voluminous copper boilers. The Vino Cotto Festival, which takes place in August, attracts many visitors and it’s a chance to meet up with people and friends and party all night long while tasting wine.
