Located in the heart of the Marche overlooking seventy-five acres of vineyards and rolling hills, this recently and carefully restored former monastery dates back to the 18th century and it shows a triumph of historic preservation.

This designer property, measuring overall 500 sq.m. ca, consists of two residential units, both beautifully restored with a mix of tradition and modernity.
The interior is bright and stylish, the original stone construction and old oak beams have been preserved and integrated into a unique reorganized interior. The entire house has been extended and raised with double height ceilings, creating a spacious light-filled interior.
