If you are planning to move to the Italian countryside with your family and would like to have additional space for your friends or to start a small holiday rental business, then you don’t need to look any further.
This lovely farmhouse in Cingoli, also known as the ‘Balcony of Marche’ thanks to its stunning views of the whole region, will offer you plenty of space for your family, and potential to expand thanks to the annex and outbuilding.
The Main Building
The main building was fully restored with great care and a glimpse to the future in 2009. It measures totally 290 sq.m. ca. and it is composed of two units, which can be easily rejoined – one is finished, the other one needs to be finished internally.
The finished unit measures about 210 sq.m. and it develops on two floors:
on the ground floor there’s the open-plan living/dining area with fireplace and fully equipped kitchen. This space is characterized by a number of French doors, to create an endless flow between the interiors and the garden, especially with the large portico, perfect for al-fresco dinners. On the same floor there’s a useful storage room, as well as a spacious guest bathroom with shower.
Stepping up the staircase in pietra serena, you get to the sleeping area: here you have the master bedroom with a beautiful canopy bed and amazing views over the hills and a small hilltop church.
This floor benefits of two more large double bedrooms, both with lovely views over the rolling hills of Marche and villages around Cingoli, as well as a large bathroom with shower.
The quality of the finishes is very high and the choice of the materials was extremely scrupulous, meant to recreate that old, rustic style of farmhouses in Marche.
Also in terms of quality of systems and comfort, nothing has been left behind: the photovoltaic system provides energy to the house and the underfloor heating gives that extra comfort during winter.
Attached to the restored part, there’s another unit, currently connected via an internal door. This part is unfinished internally and it is currently used as garage on the ground floor and storage on the first floor. This space is an unquestionable advantage, because it suits to multiple purposes:
* you can either restore it all as a fully independent unit with living area downstairs and bedrooms upstairs. This way you may rent it out to tourists to get a profit.
* You can leave the garage downstairs and make more bedrooms/bathrooms upstairs for the main house. You just need to open the door, to reconnect the two areas.
This lovely property in Marche enjoys also a 55 sq.m. old barn, set in panoramic position, that needs full restoration. While it is now used as a storage for gardening tools, you may also convert it into a big studio or a dependance for your friends or to be rented out to international tourists.
All this amazing space is surrounded by a 4.000 sq.m. garden with plenty of fruit trees: mulberry, apples, pears, apricots, olive trees and many more. You can also make your own vegetable garden if you wish to eat some good organic food.
The garden is mainly flat, so building a pool is possible.
Access to the property is via an electric gate.
One of the many privileges of this property is its proximity to basic services, which are only 1.5 km away. If, on the other hand, you want to spend a romantic evening at the restaurant or enjoy an amazing view at sunset on the balcony of Cingoli, in 5 minutes you will be in town.
Thanks to the panoramic location of the house, you will experience a great sense of openness and privacy and enjoy the view of the surrounding landscape, yet not far from services and the beautiful town of Cingoli.
Cingoli and its surroundings offer a variety of restaurants, shops and cafes; staying here will let you discover many areas of Marche. Thanks to its central position in the region, you can easily visit other hilltop towns as Cupramontana, Apiro, and Staffolo, or enjoy a day by Lake Castreccioni
Less than an hour away is the beautiful Riviera del Conero, with its amazing collection of beaches and cliffs overlooking the Adriatic sea.
