In the old days impressive land holdings, called Tenute, dotted the Marche countryside. They were typically the province of wealthy landowners and they were almost always located in the most beautiful positions. There's just such a place, outside picturesque Gualdo, that is a perfect example of the genre. We call it La Tenuta di Gualdo. Today, it's been carefully restored into 3 individual residences, each unique unto themselves, but seamlessly combined. They form a three residence complex in which each unit has private land, shared land and common pool area. It's the perfect way for you to have your own Tenuta in Le Marche, for just €250,000, with all the benefits of land, pool, views and olive trees, without having to be a wealthy land holder and without the hassles and expense of owning a large villa!

La Tenuta is very unique. It consists of two buildings and three private residences. One building is a very unique restoration, a converted tower we call La Torretta. The other building is a large farmhouse converted into two private (semi-detached) residences, Casa Bene and Casa Maggio.
Each of the three units has full title ownership, private land and an equal share of the pool, courtyard, driveway & parking area. La Tenuta presents an opportunity to enjoy a pool, land, olive trees and all the luxury of villa living with a significantly lower price tag - each unit sells at €250,000 - PLUS the reduced running costs of the shared areas such as the pool, the courtyard garden and the road.
There is a very clear, registered common agreement of which each owner is a signee. So, individual residence bills related to consumption, such as utilities, are paid separately by each owner while the common costs of land and pool maintenance are paid collectively. The agreement also allows each owner to rent his or her unit as well, as permitting guest stays by friends and family or rental income.
Let's take a tour of La Tenuta. You enter the complex and immediately see the two buildings are situated such that they create a unified "whole". The feeling of being in a peaceful complex is both instant and natural. To your left is the main house, where you find classics Casa Bene & Casa Maggio. To the right is La Torretta, the unique tower residence.
Casa Bene is the largest unit at 194 sqm. It's set over 3+ floors. Casa Bene is loaded with rustic touches. It's intimate, textured and welcoming. The ground floor at Casa Bene has a sitting room with wood burning fireplace, original beamed ceilings, antique terra-cotta tiled floors, double door to the rear terrace and lavender garden that leads to the pool. There's also an ample guest Bedroom and bathroom on this floor. From the bedroom the beautiful arched french windows look out to the courtyard and there's a private side door to garden. On the first floor you find a fully fitted kitchen and dining area. Head out to the divine wisteria covered dining terrace/balcony which overlooks the stunning Sibillini Mountains and hill-top Gualdo's bell tower. There is also a full utility room and bathroom. Casa Bene's 2nd floor bathroom has an ensuite bathroom and its own private panoramic terrace. There are wood floors and exposed beams. Also on this floor is a 3rd bedroom and steps to a mezzanine that's idea for storage, or, extra sleeping space when your overloaded with guests!
Just next door, but with own distinct style and privacy is Casa Maggio, at 129 sqm., arrayed over three floors with three terraces! The ground floor boasts a lounge with fireplace, good sized kitchen and nice terrace off the back that can accommodate a table for 8. The fully fitted dining kitchen includes large fridge freezer and dishwasher, and there is a utility room with shower.. The first floor has a bedroom (with bathroom) that opens to an amazing panoramic terrace. The second floor has bedroom, sitting room (that doubles as a 3rd bedroom) and ensuite bathroom. Then there's the roof terrace from which one can actually see the Adriatic Sea! The owner of Casa Maggio has rented the property with great success and great renter satisfaction. The use of old materials - flooring, beams, lintels and the like - adds character to the space. The main message to register is that Casa Maggio has the size and space to do all of what you want, as it is currently, or with modest changes. Note that that in addition to the fireplace there is central gas heating.
