Some homes are genuinely unique and this is definitely one of them: on top of a hill, with a 360° view of the surrounding valleys, this estate will be your private retreat in Italy, far from chaos and hidden from view.
The property extends to over 600 sq.m. accommodation with wonderful reception rooms, including an amazing drawing room with majestic fireplace, 8 large bedrooms and a private chapel. All this is surrounded by 1 hectare of land, which will guarantee you maximum privacy as well as breathtaking views over Le Marche countryside.
The Main Building
The construction of the original building dates back to the 1600s; lately in 1770 it was internally remodeled and turned into a sumptuous residence, with stone fireplaces, vaulted ceilings, ornamental stuccoes, painted canvases and frescoes. The latest renovation was carried out in 2004.
The main building develops over a total area of about 609 sq.m. divided into 3 units:
The noble villa develops over two floors with grand double entrance from the front and back garden. This hall leads to several areas of the house: 2 doors have access to a number of rooms now used as storages and cellars, which need restoration and that may be converted into exceptional reception rooms. A grand staircase in precious pietra serena leads up to the noble floor. To the right of the landing, you get into the large dining area and kitchen; to the front you enter the majestic living room with double height ceiling and an amazing stone fireplace, used in the past to warm up the room. It was probably the reception room where the most important guests were welcomed.
From here you get to the parlour, a lovely and cozy room, with stucco ceilings, now equipped with a piano and a few armchairs: it’s a more informal room compared to the previous one, where you can sit and relax.
A long corridor is the connection to the 3 bedrooms, 2 of which with en-suite bathroom. All the bedrooms are extremely spacious and have precious vaulted ceilings. The corridor is also connected to a guest bathroom and a lovely studio, furnished with solid wood furniture.
Some areas of the villa feature original materials and elements, such as the terracotta floors at the entrance, the stone staircase and some doors. Air con has been added in the bedrooms and main living room, to grant an ideal temperature in the summer.
The other 2 units are additional and independent apartments: one is the guardian’s home with kitchen/living room, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms; the second one is composed of 2 bedrooms, a kitchen/living room and a bathroom.
The three units are completely independent but with some minor works, they can be all rejoined together to get a 609 sq.m. single, majestic villa.
The property goes with a number of annexes, all used as storages, cellars and canopy. Upon application at the local municipality, they may be converted into something else and possibly used as pergolas, summer kitchen and other useful and enjoyable external spaces.
This luxurious property in Marche, being a noble palazzo, also enjoys a private church dedicated to San Michele Arcangelo. The church dates back to the middle ages and was then renovated in the 18th century; some stuccos remain from this restoration. Here the rural functions were initially held, but when the property became a noble palace, the church became private and hosted important bishops, one of whom became pope.
The church is still consecrated, so it can be used for private functions of the owner family.
The extensive lawned gardens are surrounded by mixed wooded areas and parkland. In all 1,05 hectares, all fenced. At the back of the house, the 10x5m swimming pool is located. This is an amazing leisure area, all flat, where you can place your sun loungers for a sunbath; at the same time the good number of trees guarantee natural and cool shade. It is the perfect area also to place a table to dine out under the trees.
From the garden you can enjoy a wonderful view over the valleys of region Marche, as well as over Monte Catria. During clear days you can see the sea from a distance.
Located on a hilltop in the province of Pesaro, the noble palazzo enjoys an enviable position on the edge of the village, which makes everyday life easy and comfortable. In town you can find all services and enjoy La Dolce Vita by sitting at a bar for an aperitif or having dinner in one of the quality local osterias.
This area is known worldwide for being a perfect mix of culture and nature: as a matter of facts, in just 30 minutes by car you can reach the most beautiful places in Montefeltro for a cultural tour, as well as the coast for a day at the beach and the Apennines for hiking lovers.
