Casa Quasi is a rare offering in today's market. It's hard to find houses that are habitable and partially restored, lacking only some finish work. It's even harder to find such houses with these kinds of views and this kind of price.
Casa Quasi is a good-sized house of nearly 250 sqm. A major section of the house is habitable today. There's very little to do to allow you to live in it now and to get going with finishing the rest. There is a new roof and water and power run to the house. There's even a functioning bathroom. So, you get the idea...it's ready for you to start enjoying now, albeit on a simple, unpretentious basis, with lots of upside for how it "Looks and Lives" moving forward.
To facilitate that plan the layout and interior style of Casa Quasi are very flexible. You can easily re-organize the layout to suit your needs. You can enhance the rustic features of the house by exposing more of the interior stone walls. While there is lots you could do, you can also do nothing, enjoying the simple layout and the restored section while planning for completing the rest of the house. Casa Quasi can easily be completed as a 4-bedroom house with multiple bathrooms. The ground floor can be restored however you'd like, with sizable kitchen and open plan living and dining rooms. During this finishing phase you will be able to beautify the interior will rustic elements and original and local materials.
It's also important to note that a significant amount of structural work has been done to Casa Quasi. In addition to the new roof already mentioned, works related to consolidation of the floors and foundation have also been carried out.
The outside of Casa Quasi is nearly the perfect prototype of classic Marche farmhouse architecture. Very nice stone and brick compose the outside walls and the shape of the house is stepped, with an annex section, adding some classic architectural interest and further design potential. There's a nice portico area and the original external staircase can be integrated into the final design as an architectural feature.
The views from Casa Quasi are nearly perfect, and something special when one considers the price of the house. Rolling hills, lush farmland including sunflowers, olive groves and vineyard dot the landscape surrounding the property. There's even a nice view of the majestic Sibillini Mountains and a postcard-like view of classic San Ginesio's twin towers perched on the town's hill-top.
The plot at Casa Quasi is 5,000 sqm. It's nearly all flat ("quasi piano") with lovely oak trees and a full-sun position. The house sits on a dead-end road, so there's no traffic buzzing by. The position is very private and peaceful, with the bucolic silence interrupted by the occasional rooster crowing. Access is super easy, so there's no money wasted on building a long road out in some field. You arrive, turn into the plot and you're quasi la' (nearly there). Note that an additional 18 hectares of land are available, in whole or in part.
Casa Quasi is close to EVERYTHING. Colmurano with it's chocolate festival, vino nuovo festival and summer "Arte Strada" food, art and music festa is 10-12 minutes away. In just 5 minutes you're in classic hill-town Belforte del Chienti. It's 15 minutes to either the perfect piazza of San Ginesio or arched loggia of Caldarola (known as the Land of Castles). The city of Tolentino (with all manner of shopping, services, restaurants, culture and civic energy) is about 8 minutes from Casa Perfetta, as is the SS77 Superstrada - so you (and your guests, family and friends) reach the house quickly from at least 3 different airports and you're at the beach in 35 minutes. The Sibillini Mountains National Park with summer hiking & winter skiing is 35-40 minutes from the house. Provincial capital Macerata is 25 minutes away.
The surrounding towns and hillsides are dotted with great places to eat and local producers of everything from fresh ricotta to local meats, cheeses, breads and wines, making this house NEARLY PERFECT for great year-round living, family holidays and/or whole-house rentals.
We'd bet a bottle of the local Vernaccia Nera that after this description you're feeling like you're nearly in Le Marche. Get yourself even close, at Casa Quasi!
