A rare opportunity to acquire a classic casa colonica with high ceilings, set in 1.5 hectares of its own land with direct sea views, just 2 km from the beach at Marina di Altidona.
The house is secluded and quiet, offering an exciting opportunity to enjoy one’s beautiful sea view in the quiet rural setting of the wonderful Marche countryside. It is situated at the top of the hill just 2 km from Marina di Altidona and 3 km from the hilltop medieval village of Altidona.
The property comprises:
The farmhouse, dating from the early 1960s, is currently arranged as two apartments: downstairs there is a porch, living room with open fire, kitchen, two bedrooms and a shower room with WC. There is a garage for two cars, and two storage rooms.
Upstairs is accessed by a traditional outdoor brick staircase. There is a living room with a large open fireplace and kitchenette. The room has a large roof terrace and sea views. Two bedrooms, both with 180 degree views of the sea. A third bedroom with sea views, shower room with WC.
The building is solidly constructed, the apartments were lived in until recently and could become habitable again with light refurbishment. There are also costed outline plans to remodel the whole building either as two apartments or a six bedroom house with infinity swimming pool.
There is a low building containing a brick-built bread and pizza oven and other small rooms offering further potential. There is also a 15 sq m irrigation tank which could be converted into a swimming pool or water feature; or subject to necessary consents, a swimming pool could be built in a number of other positions around the house.
The property comprises 1.5 hectares of landsurrounding the house, a small amount of which nearest the house is currently fenced. This area could be substantially increased and landscaped to form a much larger garden.
The land includes 16 olive trees producing on average 35L of high quality extra virgin olive oil per year, 4 fig trees and an almond tree. The current owners have an arrangement with a local farmer who also tends a neighbour’s fields, which could be continued by mutual agreement.
This property represents a now almost unique opportunity to purchase a building in this beautiful area which is: in very good structural condition; with a large plot of land that guarantees maximum privacy; with a panoramic sea view; and the possibility of customising and extending the whole according to one’s taste in interior style and external layout.
