Collestefano is generally considered to be the most beautiful hill in the area.
The local history shows that by 1246 Collestefano was already well known as part of a medieval defence system. Razed to the ground by the lords of Varano di Camerino, it was rebuilt in 1300 as a small parish church with buildings for a religious order and in 1700 it became a country manor. It has been in possession of the same family since the 1930s.
Sunlit throughout the day, cooling breezes in summer, a mild, healthy climate, quiet and off the beaten track, Collestefano is nevertheless just 2 km away from the village centre. The rural complex with its three houses on the top of the hill presents a unified picture.
The complex includes a 500 m˛ manor house (cellar, stone wine press, deep well and water reservoir, storerooms, garage, large central kitchen, 8 variously sized rooms), a 400 m˛ farm house with 5 rooms on the ground floor, one of which is a cellar, and 6 rooms on the first floor; and a separate 64m˛ building with 2 bedrooms, living room, bathroom and kitchen.
Whilst the manor house and farmhouse are in need of renovation, the latter, smaller building was newly built in 2008.
The unique position of the property - there are no urban settlements in the immediate vicinity - is ideal for many kinds of leisure activities: relaxation and wellness, hiking, horse riding, country walks, nature observation and farmhouse holidays. Besides this, the historic cellar and the DOC location of the estate are the best prerequisites for profitable viniculture.
The property is for sale with 1.5 hectares of land at €350,000.-
It is also possible to buy the entire estate, Tenuta Collestefano, including 12 hectares of land, characterised by deciduous woods, olive groves, orchards and fields of cereals, at the special price of €690,000.
Current income streams
Photovoltaic panels (6 Kw) have been recently installed on the roof of the cottage, generating an income of €3,300 per annum. In addition, the land of the Tenuta is currently rented out for an annual income of circa €5,900.
About the Location
The residence is situated centrally with easy access to main roads. The towns of Camerino, San Severino Marche and Matelica are all located in the immediate vicinity (within a 10 km radius).
The international airport and the harbour town of Ancona are only a one-hour drive away; The Adriatic Sea and Porto Recanati 45 minutes. Inland, Assisi can be reached in one hour, Perugia in an hour and a half, and Rome and Bologna in three. Collestefano hill (430m), from which a unique panorama of the surrounding countryside can be enjoyed, rises in the middle of the Castelraimondo (MC) district.
