683 - Casa Ritirata
Good local road
A fully restored four bedroom farmhouse in a very beautiful secluded setting yet within minutes of the popular towns of Monte Giberto and Petritoli.
This delightful property is approached by a tree-lined driveway to the gravelled parking area and south facing landscaped garden with lawn edged with shade providing trees, a variety of fruit and walnut trees and a natural spring for irrigation. The land totals nearly three hectares including 50 olive trees and a woodland.
The house was restored three years ago to required building standards and has achieved a careful blend of the original features of timber beams and lintels with a modern light ambience. Radiator heating is provided by the pellet stove and hot water from solar panels making this a very economical property to run.
The ground floor, with maple strip flooring, offers the entrance hall, living room with wood burning stove, dining room with wood burning stove and wide brick arched opening to the modern full fitted kitchen (all SMEG appliances), utility room and bathroom with shower.
The first floor features reclaimed teak flooring and high original timber beam ceilings. It comprises the master bedroom with juliet balcony overlooking the garden and surrounding countryside and en-suite modern bathroom, three further bedrooms and the family bathroom with bathtub and shower over.
Outside the house there is useful garden storage within an old grotto and a brick built workshop.
This property is located within a very popular part of the region being only 15 minutes from the historic town of Fermo, with one of the most lovely piazzas in Italy, and 25 minutes from the sandy beaches around Porto San Giorgio with its boutique shops and leisure marina. The nearest local airport is just over one hour away.
