705 - Casa Tranquilla
Good local road
A beautifully restored traditional 19th century farmhouse in an idyllic rural location and with stunning views of the surrounding countryside. The property has been converted into two well-appointed self-contained apartments and has proved exceptionally popular for holiday lettings as well as offering a lovely Italian home for the owner.
The restoration was carried out to the highest building standards, whilst retaining many of the original features, and benefits from underfloor heating. Both apartments are light and spacious with tiled cotto flooring and timber beam ceilings.
Another feature is the mature beautifully landscaped garden meandering down to the summer house with fruit and nut trees and a swimming pool with tiled surround. The land includes 35 olive trees.
The first floor apartment, with its vaulted ceilings and exposed beams, is accessed by an external staircase to the covered porch and wide front door opening to the fully fitted modern kitchen with dining area, living room with part exposed brick walls and glazed door to the south facing loggia overlooking the garden and countryside beyond. Both double bedrooms have high ceilings and the bathroom has a bathtub with shower over.
The ground floor apartment offers similar two bedroom accommodation but with the addition of a large (32 sqm) south facing covered portico from which to enjoy the lovely tranquil setting. It also has a large walk-in store room under the staircase. The sunny living room also has a wood burning stove and arched glazed doors opening directly onto the garden.
Outside, a paved path leads to the 12 metre variable depth pool, substantial pine summer house with shower and wc for pool users, shady pergola and BBQ area. To the front of the house is a gravelled parking area and double security gates.
The property is conveniently located just a few minutes from the centre of Loro Piceno with its good range of local facilities and there are a number of excellent restaurants nearby. The Sibillini mountains and Adriatic beaches are equally accessible and the nearest airport just one hour away.
