Historic Le Marche Estate. In the rolling hills of the Ancona countryside, surrounded by fields, pastures and woodlands. This historic property is located between the villages of Arcevia and Serra San Quirico. The nearest town for daily purchases is just 2 km away, while the motorway is 12 km away and allows you to reach Ancona or the magnificent beaches of Sirolo and Numana in around an hour. It is not far from the Gola Rossa National Park, with its rugged mountains ideal for hiking and excursions and just 18 km from the famous Grotte di Frasassi. The well known seaside resort of Senigallia is half an hour’s drive. The closest airports are Falconara and Perugia.
The property comprises two buildings, the Main Villa, measuring 574 net sq.m over three floors, and a 31 net sq.m private chapel; and a Farmhouse, requiring restoration, measuring 778 net sq.m. in total over three floors.
The Main Villa
A large entrance hall provides access to the ground floor, where there is a staircase leading to the floor above and to the basement.
This floor comprises a large living room with fireplace, dining room, studio, library, kitchen, two bedrooms, a bathroom, a storeroom and a further entrance to the back part of the villa.
The first floor is used entirely for the sleeping quarters, with a large central sitting room, 6 bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The basement floor houses the utility areas: 2 large cellars, two woodsheds and an interesting cavern.
The private chapel
The private, consecrated chapel is next door to the villa and measures 31 net sq.m in total.
Built between the second half of the 18th and the first half of the 19th century, there is one nave inside with a barrel-vaulted ceiling, oval windows and some baroque decorations.
The Farmhouse to be restored – 778 net sq.m.
The farmhouse still has its original layout, typical of country houses of the period: the basement houses a large vaulted cellar, where wine was made, and several storerooms.
The ground floor was used for the stables, with areas for storage and other utility areas.
The first floor is where the farmer lived, and is divided into a large central kitchen, the pantry, a hall and 7 bedrooms.
It is also possible to purchase a further 31 hectares of land, with another farmhouse, also requiring restoration, measuring 335 gross sq.m over three floors, plus 126 sq.m of loft space and a storehouse next door measuring 50 sq.m.
The land is mostly arable land and pasture, and a small wooded area.
Condition and finishing
The main villa is in excellent condition and has undergone restoration while maintaining as best as possible its original features: beamed ceilings, antique tile floors and large fireplaces.
On several of the ceilings, you can see remnants of frescoes; further evidence of the building’s elegance and class.
It is not certain exactly when the villa was built, nor whether it was built before or after the private chapel.
However, the villa is believed to have been built between the 18th and early 20th centuries.
The property originally belonged to the Counts of Fiumi-Sermattei and was also owned by Pope Leone the 12th’s family, who is thought to have used the property as a hunting estate as he mentions in one of his poems.
The Main Villa and the Farmhouse are surrounded by 3 hectares of land with the possibility to enlarge it to 5 hectares or more:
– for a further 2 ha of arable land next to the villa: 32,000 Euros (16,000 Euros per hectare)
– for a further 26 ha of arable land: 416,000 Euros (16,000 Euros per hectare)
– for a further 4 ha of wood: 16,000 Euros (4,000 Euros per hectare)
