The building dates back to the XVIII century and originally hosted a convent. It has been for a very long time (until about 100 years ago) the only building in the area, and with it's dominating position it overlooked it's 30 hectares of land.
The house is organized on two floors over a total 300 square meters (approximately 3200 square feet) and has a very unique layout: double height ceilings and marble pool in the living room, extremely spacious bedrooms with views to all sides of the house, private living room on the upper floor with view down to the pool and out to the rolling hills and vineyards. The house offers 6 sleeps in 3 bedrooms and two more sleeps on sofa-beds in the living room: two bedrooms with king size beds and en-suite bathrooms, and one with two single beds.
Ground Floor: Entrance, Kitchen, Living Room with pool, Fireplace room, bedroom with two single beds, bathroom.
First Floor: Two Bedrooms with en-suite bathroom and closet placed on opposite sides of the house, with in between a Living room and office overlooking the ground floor living area with pool.
Being located in a very panoramic position, the outside area offers a great sense of openness, with wonderful views to the three neighboring towns of Cingoli, Cupramontana and Staffolo, and at the same time a full feeling of privacy. In the south-west side of the garden in the outdoor marble lap pool (15x3 meters, or 50x10 feet), with deck area and sunbeds.
Facing west to the vineyards of our neighbor, is a spacious pergola, perfect for aperitifs overlooking the pool.
The House hosts a spacious (40 square meters) and fully equipped kitchen with ventilated 5 burner hob , baking oven, side by side fridge with freezer and ice maker, dishwasher, double sink, pots, pans, and a breakfast bar.
In addition we have an outdoor kitchen, where it is wonderful to cook lunch or even have breakfast, as it is exposed to the East and therefore has amazing views to the rising sun -on very clear days you can admire the Adriatic sea in the distance.
The property is set in the countryside and is surrounded by fields, vineyards and olive groves. It is a country home so for urban dwellers the wildlife, insects, etc can be a bit of a surprise but it is part of the joy of being immersed in the nature. There are amazing sights as well, for example the fireflies dancing in the fields on a summer night: an extraordinary light show. Please keep in mind that we do not have child safety features at the property and the pool is not fenced (it is however very shallow and perfect for children). Therefore, young children should be supervised by adults while staying at the property.

We renovated this house with the desire to be close to nature, so you will find no trimmed lawns or rose gardens here. Nature is right outside, and if you are lucky, a porcupine or fox stroll by. There are vipers and scorpions in most of Italy, but we have never seen any around or inside the house. We do sometimes have spiders visiting though, and our caretaker will soon take of it shall for request it.
