Casa Principessa is a beautifully restored farmhouse situated in the famous Golden Triangle area of Le Marche. It enjoys magnificent views of the hill-top village of Gualdo, the town of Sarnano in the valley below, the majestic Sibillini mountains and in the distance can be seen views of the Gran Sasso of Abruzzo. The estate is perfectly positioned, exposed to the south west and protected from the North.
Villa Belvedere, name of the estate could of not been more appropriate, as the sum of the features, aesthetical, technical and location and not last the price against value that makes this property unique in this area of Le Marche.
The buildings that compose the estate are a very good example of superb building quality, as our technical staff has not been able to find any structural faults consequence of the tremors that have affected the Region.
The estates of aprox 10.000 square meters completely fenced lays on the south facing hillside at less than 1one km from the Historic center of San Ginesio, and the position allows a complete and long distance view of the Sibillini Mountains on the west, towards the south in the distance is the Gran Sasso d’ Abruzzo, while just uphill the most romantic view of the medieval historic center at walking distance from the property.
The approach to the property is through a white country road, that arrives to the important iron made entrance gate , and here although the landscape of the garden blends in with the typical type of trees and bushes of this area, the owner that guides our visit, transmits all the love and care involved in the creation of this garden where every olive tree is a monument , every flower had been choose and positioned with care.
Before starting the description of the home, we continued through the garden and where amazed by what is not visible, that is the technology that runs all the irrigation system that is fed by natural spring water and underground water tanks that collect the rain water, and provide a “smart” irrigation method.
On the flat area of the south side of the garden is present a oval shaped swimming pool that has been positioned in a less intrusive position while offers the most astonishing views of the valley and of the Sibillini national park.
At this point we already feel at home without having entered in the main home that again follows the philosophy of the owner who has restored the home following every stage of the works, the details of the beams, floors, tiles , oak and chestnut woods used for the doors and windows caught our attention more than the furniture that is anyways included in the sale.
The layout is simple as the home has kept the main walls and room dimensions with a double entrance from the east façade into a big entrance hall, toilet , living room with fireplace surrounded on three sides by the big outside portico, a good size dining room with wood stove and a smaller kitchen both allowing access to the south side loggia. From the entrance hall the stairs lead to the first floor where a sitting room with fireplace gives access to the master bedroom with ensuite bathroom, walk in closet , and the south facing terrace , on the same floor is present a second bedroom with bathroom plus a single bedroom.
The open staircase leads to the attic level with bedroom, and bathroom. All the floor levels have exposed wood beam ceilings, cotto floors, and every room is equipped with radio diffusion, tv and telephone. The three levels develop a total of 365 sq.meters.
The central heating is guaranteed by a propane gas supply, with thermo starts on each level.
On the courtyard is present a one level, brick built building converted to garage for two cars, and a wine cellar built into the hillside.
The location of this property could be the best example of the Marche country side, the surrounding fields are all cultivated with the typical crops of the region, the province town of Macerata is only 6 km from the property, and in the distance the range of the Sibillini Mountains complete the spectacular views and sensations that the location can provide.
