Luxury Country House in Marche - Italy
This typical marchigiano farmhouse has been beautifully restored by its owners and now provides a superb family villa. Located on the edge of the village of Corridonia it enjoys super views and plenty of privacy.
The owners have ensured that the house provides excellent living spaces and the outdoor areas are comfortable: an the ideal place to relax and enjoy an al fresco meal.
The house was completely rebuilt from scratch, thus ensuring the quality and comfort of a new building inside a traditionally-looking shell.
Measuring about 340 sq.m., the house develops on 2 floors, divided as follows:
The design of the house is open plan on the ground floor. To the right of the entrance hall, there is a dining room, connected to a fully-equipped kitchen with modern and new appliances. The dining room is also connected to a wonderfully large and bright living room with lots of windows and modern, suspended fireplace. Plenty of light gets into this room, thanks to the big French window, which connects directly to the garden and pool area. To the other side of the entrance hall, there is a studio/office with exit out to the pergola, a spacious guest bathroom and a room which may be used as a ground-floor bedroom, reading room or children’s playroom.
On the first floor there are two double bedrooms both with en-suite bathroom: the master bedroom is extremely spacious and comfortable. It enjoys a sizable private bathroom with both shower and Agape bathtub. The master bedroom also features a huge walk-in closet: this super useful space, was actually obtained from a proper room, with direct access from the corridor upstairs. The door to the corridor is still existing so, in case you need a smaller wardrobe but an additional bedroom, this space may be reconverted again into a double bedroom, thus obtaining 3 double bedrooms upstairs.
The other bedroom is spacious, enjoys beautiful views over the garden and surrounding countryside and it features an en-suite bathroom with bathtub.
The first floor is accessible both via internal staircase made of travertino, and also via an external staircase with loggia, as it used to be in old farmhouses.
This property was completely rebuilt to a very high standard and according to anti-seismic criteria. The roof is insulated, the floor is ventilated – thus avoiding damp problems – triple-glazed widows and mosquito nets on all windows. The underfloor heating makes living in this house extremely comfortable.
The current owners – who took care of the restoration – made the choice to retaining the old, traditional look of marchigiano farmhouses, while opting for a modern and minimalistic style for the interiors, to create a nice contrast between tradition and modernity.
Attached to the house, there’s a small apartment, accessible through the external staircase. This is the perfect space to provide privacy to your guests and makes the house flexible for holiday rentals: as a matter of facts, this flat is composed of an open-plan kitchen/sitting room, a spacious bathroom with shower and a bedroom on the mezzanine.
This apartment enjoys a small, private terrace with views over the swimming pool and Marche’s rolling hills and it is especially lovely at sunset.
Alternatively, the annex may be easily reconnected to the main apartment.
Upon arrival at the house there is a 25 sq.m. garage, which provides shelter for cars and for the gardening tools. It is restored but it needs additional work to be completed.
The property is surrounded by a mature garden, planted with local species, and agricultural land for a total of 1,5 hectares. This is the perfect size for a land, as it’s not too big to be taken care of, but big enough to ensure privacy all around the house.
While a gardener is taking care of the garden, a local farmer is taking care of the agricultural land, so that it’s always in good order, with no effort for the owners. The land enjoys 26 productive olive trees and a small vineyard, for production of your own organic olive oil and wine.
The swimming pool measures 12 x 4m and it’s positioned south-east, so basically it’s always in the sun. It is also located a few steps from the portico, thus making it convenient to organize a pool party with food and drinks.
The nearest village is Corridonia, which can be reached in just 4 minutes by car. By the way, the closest services are just 1 km away. Corridonia is a charming small community, where people are friendly and always ready to lend a helping hand.
Corridonia is a lovely medieval town, surrounded by the typical antique walls, but it greatly develops also outside the walls. Here you can find full services to live a happy and satisfying life: not only food shops and bars, but also typical restaurants, clubs, post office, banks, cinemas, theatre and also a well-known equestrian centre. Heading to Piediripa (7kms) you can also find a few shopping malls.
The nearest beaches are about 30 kms away. Also Macerata, with its Sferisterio and opera festival, is interesting to visit, only 13 kms away.
The location of the house is unsurpassed: surrounded by pristine nature, very quiet and private, it’s not isolated and will let you access all services in just minutes. The bravest, may walk to town!
