This is a stunning 7 bedroom house with private pool in Marche, Italy. Enjoying 360 degree views, it is immaculately presented and equipped to an incredibly high standard. With its own private chapel, it's also an ideal location for a wedding.
This is a truly stunning property, offering luxury accommodation in a beautiful setting. Guests enter the property into a hallway. To the left hand side of the hallway, is a modern, fitted kitchen and small dining area with wooden table for 6. On the other side of the hallway is a comfortable living area and library / study area. The living area has two 3 seater sofas arranged around an open fireplace as well as French windows leading out to the garden and outdoor eating area situated under the shade of a beautiful oak tree. The living area leads through to a cosy TV room equipped with DVD player and Dolby Surround Sound and through again to a larger dining area with central wooden table and cream chairs. This is a great space to eat together inside. Also on the ground floor is a shower room and WC as well as a laundry room with washing machine, dryer and butler's sink. The owners really have restored the property beautifully, with respect for the original room layouts and nowhere is this more apparent than in the adjoining chapel. The original baptismal / Holy water font is set into the stone wall and if guests wish to get married here or enjoy their wedding celebrations here, we can certainly help to arrange this for you. The stunning interior decor continues upstairs. On the first floor there is a beautiful master bedroom suite with adjoining single room or dressing room. These rooms share a bathroom. In addition there is a smaller double bedroom with a French "one and a half bed" as well as two further bedrooms (one with kingsize bed and one with both queen and single bed). The bathroom shared between these 2 rooms has a sunken bath, WC, bidet and large walk-in shower. Up a second flight of stairs, guests reach the attic floor of the villa. Despite being in the eaves, the attic floor enjoys full standing height and comprises two large double bedrooms (one with 3 x single beds and one with a queen bed and sofa bed). These 2 bedrooms share a bathroom with WC, bidet, bath and shower attachment. Please note there is some compromised head space in this bathroom.
The property enjoys 360 degree views of nearby Apiro, Poggio San Vicino and the surrounding rolling hills. Gardens surround the property with ample lawned areas for either ball games or quiet relaxtion. There is also a 14 metre x 5 metre private pool to enjoy (1.4 metre depth). A BBQ area and table are located under the nearby trees, ideal for al fresco cooking and dining. In fact, there is an abundance of outdoor seating options. There are two sets of rattan furniture (two side tables and 8 easy chairs) and two adjoining wrought iron tables with chairs seating 14. In addition, a round table with 5 chairs is situated outside the kitchen on a gravel terrace backing onto the chapel apse. This is a perfect spot for breakfast or a mid morning coffee. Plenty of trees offer shady spots for relaxation around the garden. Mature trees including olives, pear, walnut and oaks compliment the newly laid lawns and sweeping driveway that weaves its way around the villa. Nestled into a couple of them is a hammock for the ultimate snooze venue, and for those of a more active nature, a field behind the barn and garage area is perfect for games such as football and badminton. A vintage wooden swing hangs from one large oak tree (children only!) and a table tennis table (including bats) is located in the garage. Adventurous children can explore down to the bottom of the vineyard where there is a tiny stream which runs along the perimeter of the property. Although sometimes just a muddy trickle, plenty of fun can always be had damming it up! Tennis courts are available nearby in Apiro and Poggio San Vicino. The property overlooks the town of Apiro to the north and the picturesque village of Poggio San Vicino to the south, whilst nestled in the foothills of Monte San Vicino. However, the property is not isolated, making up the tiny hamletof Favari. Three farms line the approach road and the house overlooks a small country dwelling, or casale owned by delightful Vittoria, a perfect neighbour. The charming small town of Apiro is only 5 minutes drive away, lovely Cupramontana, the capital of the Verdicchio wine region, lies 10 minutes away and the town of Cingoli 20 minutes drive away past the pretty man-made Cingoli lake. The historic cities of Jesi and Fabriano, two important centres, lie within a 25 minute drive. Ancona is the nearest international airport.
A note from Jo
This villa is simply beautiful. We love it. The owner has put her heart and soul into the renovations and furnishings, creating an incredibly stylish and comfortable property. The gardens are simply idyllic... let the children re-discover the simple pleasures of cooling off in the stream or opt for the 21st century pool to enjoy a few lengths or enjoy some pool games. It's a villa you definitely won't want to leave at the end of your holiday!
