Luxury Apartment in Marche - Italy
A fiery sunset, the sun slowly and gently going down and hiding behind the medieval town door and you, getting back home after a long day spent out. The majestic entrance of the building makes you feel the greatness of the past, which still resonates within the walls of the ancient palace.
The grand staircase leads you up to the noble floor and once you open the door you find yourself into the big entrance, with its doors leading you to the several and different rooms of the house, all characterized by frescoed ceiling, perfectly preserved over the years.
The total area of the apartment is 357 sq.m., thus guaranteeing big and luminous spaces for each room. The grand hall features original cotto tiles on the floor, while if you look up, you’ll be amazed by the original coffered ceiling, which has been masterfully restored. If you twist around yourself, you’ll see the doors leading to different areas of the house: the doors are original and hand-painted and they feature wood frames with a marble effect.
One of the most beautiful rooms is probably the lounge and studio on your left: as you enter, your eyes will be immediately caught by the stunning fresco on the ceiling, which is beautifully and perfectly preserved. On the floor, once again, the original cotto tiles will give the room a warm look and will make you feel as you have been thrown into the past. It is the perfect place to relax or get inspired, thanks to the atmosphere it spreads all around and the view over the quiet property courtyard.
On the opposite side, there is a second living room, with coffered ceiling and cotto tiles, where you can welcome your guests. This room is leading directly to the elegant and spacious dining room for your most important guests. The room is characterized by an amazing hand painted coffered ceiling: whatever the dishes you are going to prepare, your lunch will be successful, thanks to the elegance and warm atmosphere.
Once again, from the hall, you can reach the family dining room, which is leading to the fully equipped kitchen. The style perfectly matches with the general look of the house and there is also a big fireplace, if you wish to grill some meat or prepare rustic bruschettas.
From the kitchen, there is a direct entrance to a big storage, which is perfect to keep your supplies, but it is also useful as a laundry room.
Last but not least, and again from the hall, via a hand-painted door, you access the corridor leading to the sleeping area, with its 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
All the bedrooms are spacious, bright and directly illuminated, thanks to the fact that each room has 2 windows. Two of them feature frescoed ceilings representing goddes; the third one enjoys a magnificent hand-painted coffered ceiling in the relaxing colour of light green.
A curious characteristic is that both bathrooms are placed on a kind of small bridge, crossing the alley dividing 2 buildings. One of the bathrooms enjoys a bathtub, the other one has a shower.
The cellar is placed below ground level, thus guaranteeing the perfect temperature to store your collection of wines.
The total area of the cellar is about 250 sq.m. and it features amazing cross-vaulted ceilings. Once restored, it will become a unique area of the property: thanks to its brick construction, the characteristic vaulted ceilings and the location of each room – some big and some like small niches – the atmosphere will be warm and exclusive. It is said that this is part of a wider net of underground town “grottoes”, that were typically built in the past to store personal belongings or to hide during times of war and slump.
The property is privileged, because it is one of the few to enjoy also a courtyard: there is a spacious common area, where you can relax in the summer. Additionally, there is a 30 sq.m. private area, which could be used as your own vegetable garden.
From the courtyard, you can access a small room, that you can use for any purpose: as a storage, as a kitchen if you wish to dine out in the garden with your neighbours and friends or any other use, comfortable to you.
It seems that the building was built on the 17th century over some ruins dating back to the 15th century. Yet, it was in the 1800s, that it got the look that we see today. Over the centuries, it was also the Bishop’s Palace, hence its great and rich style, that characterizes the whole property.
During World War II, the building was used as a place to protect soldiers and people in general, up to the extent that, during the restoration, which took place at the end of the 1990s some objects belonged to soldiers and hidden inside the house walls were found.
The noble apartment is placed in a privileged position, right in the town centre of Civitanova Marche Alta, less than 100 metres from the main square. This will give you the possibility to have all the basic services at your fingertips: in the main square you can find an exclusive and historic bar, a food shop, a news-stand selling all the main objects you may need for your daily use.
Moreover, Civitanova Marche Alta, is a lovely and well maintained medieval town: it is amazing walking at night through the alleys, smelling the scent of geraniums hanging on the house windows. And when you wish to get inspired, just walk to the small belvedere, overlooking the countryside and with a view stretching out onto the peaceful sea.
Living in Civitanova Marche Alta, will also allow you to easily and quickly reach the main attractions and most important services. Civitanova Marche is just 4 kms away: here you can find beautiful sandy beaches, fashionable shops, restaurants, bars and clubs, as well as a big shopping mall and road connections (A14 motorway and SS77 highway, connecting the coast to the mountains).
