Roman Temple House with Garden in Historic Town Centre
Roman Temple House. This amazing property is located in the historic centre of Fermo just 200m from the Piazza del Popolo which is the hub of life in the town. Well known for its cultural events, all services are within walking distance. Weekly antique markets are organised in the summer and its lovely Teatro dell’Aquila has a rich program of shows all year around. The property also boasts lovely views of the Adriatic sea and the Sibillini Mountains.
The property comprises a 3 storey house of 475 sqm set in a terraced garden of 200 sqm. The house dates back to the 1700s but the overall structure is much older as the round room in the basement testifies. This room, is part of an ancient Roman Temple, still in excellent condition. The round room has always been used as a banqueting hall, thanks to its unique style with arches and niches, decorated with the Roman remains found during the excavation.
Round Room of about 65 sqm built on a Roman Temple (later on a local mint) used as a banquet hall.
The main entrance hall is spacious and classy, thanks to its grand staircase, leading to the first floor.
From the hall, you have direct access to the double living room, plus an elegant dining room. Both rooms feature stucco ceilings that perfectly match the prestigious atmosphere of the whole house. From here, you can exit out to the balcony, overlooking the wonderful landscape stretching from the sea to the mountains.
On the same floor there is a bathroom, a storeroom, a kitchen and a dining room, with a big fireplace, in perfect working order, useful for heating up the room but also for cooking some good food.
stepping up the grand staircase, you enter a large room with frescoed ceiling, which leads you to the 4 bedrooms. This room could be used as a private study or a sitting room, where you can have breakfast and relax before stepping down to the ground floor.
All the 4 bedrooms feature beautiful and elegant frescoed ceilings, perfectly preserved and illuminated by antique chandeliers. The two master bedrooms are spacious and have ensuite bathrooms. The other two bedrooms are served by a third bathroom.
From the round room, you have direct exit to the exclusive 200 sqm terraced garden, facing south. From here you can enjoy an amazing 180° view, from the Adriatic sea on your left, to the Sibillini Mountains to your right, passing over the green rolling hills in the middle. With just one glance, you’ll be able to see all the typical landscapes of the Marche region.
