Luxury Country House in Marche - Italy
This is a beautifully restored farmhouse situated in the famous Golden Triangle area of Le Marche. It enjoys magnificent views of the hill-top towns of Gualdo and Sarnano, with the majestic Sibillini mountains as the back drop.
The estate is perfectly positioned, exposed to the south west and protected from the North. The small hill top town of Gualdo is within walking distance and is the source of daily necessities, including bars and a great restaurant. The town of Sarnano is a 15min drive.
The Main House
The property, parts of which date back to the 1700s, has been lovingly restored by local artisan builders using the old stones, handmade tiles and original wooden beams, creating a charming and luxurious villa with all modem conveniences.
The main building is a carefully restored, three level house.
The highlight of this building is located on the top level which is solely dedicated to the master bedroom with a cathedral ceiling, a stylish en-suite bathroom with a large modern bath, walk-in shower, toilet and bidet.
The mid-level has two bedrooms, a bathroom and a large lounge room (this could be easily converted into a fourth bedroom with en-suite bathroom).
The ground floor houses the kitchen, dining room, wc and a lounge room with an open fireplace.
The Pool House is a two-level annex . The upper level has a good-sized room with built-in storage cupboards. The ground level includes a large laundry with bathroom. Next to the laundry is a separate storage room for garden tools and pool equipment.
The third building has two levels plus an attic. In terms of square metres it is bigger than the main house and has been completed to a ”builders finish” (structure and externals). The value of this house has not been included in the asking price and will give the new owners the flexibility to complete it to the same standard as the main house, providing two residential houses. An alternative would be to sell this building to defray the cost of the purchase. This will give the new owners maximum flexibility with this beautiful property.
The property is surrounded by a 7.000 sq.m. mature garden with stunning views over the hill-top towns of Gualdo and Sarnano, as well as over the Sibillini Mountains.
The swimming pool overlooks the valley and Sarnano, and is framed by a beautiful 75 year old olive tree.
With access from the parking area, there is a 200 year old wood-fired antique bread/pizza oven, fully restored and functional.
The location of this property offers privacy with the nearest house being 400m away. Easy access is via paved roads and a white stone driveway. There are no steep winding roads.
Gualdo, with its food shops, bars and nice restaurants is a walking distance from the house, which is a great plus.
Why Buy It
This property is right for you if you are looking for something ready to move into but with development potential.
In fact, the main farmhouse does not require any work and you can live in it immediately, while you carry on the final works to finish the other farmhouse, where you could create rooms for a B&B or self-contained apartments.
In both cases, it will be an investment that will bring you an economic return, thanks to the holiday rentals: Gualdo – and the whole area of the Sibillini Mountains in general – is yearly visited by international tourists, who love a holiday in the nature, where they can go for a ride, mountain biking or hiking on the mountain paths.
