Authentic: this is the adjective that best describes this charming casale in the countryside in the Ancona province, region Marche.
If you have already entered and experienced real life in a traditional farmhouse, you will recognize all the typical elements and you will feel like reliving the same emotions of the past; if it’s the first time you enter a marchigiano farmhouse, you will feel catapulted into the past and you will be able to imagine the daily life of the farmers in the blink of an eye.
The Main House
The main building has been perfectly preserved, with a careful attention to original details. It develops on an overall area of about 680 sq.m. on 2 floors. As it often happened in the past – as the family became bigger – the house was enlarged over the years. That’s why the total surface is so extensive now.
The farmhouse has been converted into a Country House for guests who come to Marche, a region where you can enjoy art, culture, sport and relax at the same time.
Here there are the common areas: big lounge, spacious dining room, breakfast room, industrial kitchen, toilets.
The current owner has cleverly divided it into 2 independent apartments, so it’s possible to use one of them as a main home for the family while you rent the other one on a weekly basis or as a B&B.
The first apartment features a lovely kitchen/living room with big fireplace, 5 spacious bedrooms (one with a mezzanine) all with en-suite bathrooms.
The smaller apartment enjoys a kitchen area, a dining-living room with original fireplace, 2 spacious and bright bedrooms, a bathroom.
All rooms have been finished with original materials cleaned and reused as the cotto tiles, wood beams, doors and furnished with pieces recalling the typical design of the time in the area of Marche. The green lines along the walls are more than a whim: farmers used to paint the walls, especially the base, to protect them from scratches and dirt.
The washbasins in the kitchens recall the old stone basins, the ceramic switches are lovely, as the chandeliers with their simple and clean shapes.
The property enjoys several annexes, each one useful for a specific purpose.
The main one is a dependence, that can be used as a home for the manager of the country house or as a small house for guests. The restoration of the dependance is lovely and completely different from the casale: modern finishes, big windows to let plenty of light enter into the house, super-modern kitchen and bathroom. All spaces are big and bright, including the 2 bedrooms.
Attached to the main building there’s a space used as a storage and it partly hosts the showers for the pool.
A few steps from the pool, there’s an outbuilding with roof, but open on 3 sides, used as a summer kitchen, so you can cook a meal or prepare a drink to be enjoyed by the pool together with your friends and guests.
The buildings are surrounded by a spacious garden, fully enjoyable, especially in the area around the pool, which is flat so you can put sunbeds and have a sunbath. In the spring the garden is an explosion of colours and scents, thanks to the experienced owner, who has planted roses and other beautiful flowers, that create a welcoming and dreamlike setting.
The pool area is magic with its 14x7m infinity pool with cascade and a heated Jacuzzi, both overlooking the extraordinary landscape of region Marche.
Along with the garden, an additional 7.100 sq.m. agricultural land are included in the property.
The property is located in a very private and quiet setting, yet easy to find and with a comfortable access for the guests of the country house.
Belvedere Ostrense is just 2,5 kms away from the house. Here you can find all basic services as food shops, pharmacy, post office, banks and more. In town you can also meet people and make friends: you just need to sit down in a bar and you can be sure someone will chat up with you and will be happy to welcome you into the local community.
