La Lucciola is conveniently located 2.5 km from the village of Force in the province of Ascoli Piceno, overlooking the Aso valley. The beach and motorway at Pedaso are about 40 km away and Ancona airport about an 80 minute drive.
Originally a classical Marchigiano farmhouse, the recently restored accommodation (2008) now occupies 2 floors (c 325 m2). Whilst retaining much of its original character, the high quality refurbishment of this luxury restored farmhouse also satisfies the demands of modern day living.
The spacious ground floor provides a family room/kitchen with direct access to a portico, a dining room/library and dual aspect drawing room with wood burning stove, as well as a pantry/utility room and a shower room. An internal staircase leads to the first floor accommodation that provides a spacious central hallway/sitting room with fireplace, two en-suite master bedrooms, two further bedrooms and a house bathroom.
The Guest Cottage, formerly a barn, was restored in 2012 and comprises a stylish mini apartment and separate en suite bedroom on the upper ground floor (c 60 m2) and a one-bedroom apartment (with flexibility and scope to add the finishing touches) on the lower ground floor (c 60 m2).
Professionally landscaped gardens surround the house on all sides. There are established and colourful borders, winding paths, lawns and hedges, as well as panoramic views of the Marchigani hills, Sibillini Mountains and medieval hilltop towns. The salt-water pool (11m x 5.5m) is situated between the main house and guest cottage and is complemented by wooden decking, sandstone terracing and external lighting.
The main house and guest apartments are highly versatile and have independently managed services. There is ample scope to use the property as a live/work unit and/or build upon established rental income so making an excellent investment opportunity to buy.
