Full description:

Unbelievable and superb completely renovated villa of great historical and artistic value. It is situated in the beautiful open countryside of Le Marche, between the Adriatic sea
and the Sibillini mountains. Surrounded by 360°panaromic views, the property nestles into the hillside where it has been a focal point for the surrounding landscape for hundreds of years.
Formerly a small monastery with its own exquisite chapel, the villa was bought by the current owners in 2000 as a ruin, and it has been lovingly restored over a number of years. Great emphasis was placed on retaining the original features of beams, antique terracotta floor tiles, open fires and stone walls, whilst adding the modern day comforts that we have all come to expect, such as en suite bathrooms, fully equipped kitchens, wireless internet connection and satellite television.
The 2 hectares of grounds have matured well over the past ten years, and now include a 5 hole golf course and a 15 metre irregular shaped swimming pool, surrounded by sub tropical planting. At the front of the house there is a formal garden with fountain, and a small lake provides the perfect hazard for the golf course.
All sections of the house are interconnecting on the ground floor, which offers all the facilities of a wonderful
family home. It would be a simple task, however, to divide the sections of the house into three completely self
contained houses.
The ground floor of the property consists of the following :
• An entrance hall
• Two large living rooms with open fireplace
• Two well equipped kitchens, one with a winter fireplace.
• One utility room
• One large shower room
• One WC with a wet room shower
• A small library
• A dining room with open fireplace
At present, the Chiesa (chapel) is entered externally, but it would be possible to put an interconnecting
doorway either in the library or in one of the kitchens.
The first floor of the house is currently accessed via three separate staircases, but for family use the upstairs
could be opened up, removing one or more of the staircases. Alternatively, the upper floor of the Oratorio wing
of the house (behind the Chiesa) could be left as a guest wing with its own staircase.
The upstairs layout is as follows:
• Oratorio -two double bedrooms, both with en suite facilities. The larger room has a whirlpool bath
with shower over. The smaller has a walk in shower.
• Granaio (central section) - three double bedrooms all with en suite facilities. The largest room also has
a bath.
• La Stalla - one double bedroom with en suite shower room, one single room (no en suite), and one
suite, with a small sitting room and a spiral staircase leading to a mezzanine bedroom. The en suite bathroom has a bath with shower over.
In the grounds is a small apartment. The current owners used this as their living quarters whilst the property was being rented until they acquired an additional property.
The apartment has the following facilities:
• A well equipped kitchen, with large oven, hob, fridge and dishwasher
• A bedroom area - which previously was divided from the rest of the apartment by a wardrobe "wall"
• A shower room
• A sitting and dining area
• A private terrace and garden at the rear of the property
• There is a small laundry and a linen store at the rear of the apartment.
• A bread / pizza oven is built into the external wall of this building.

The 80 metre drive is lined with olive and cypress trees, and there are several additional olive trees in the grounds, together with a small orchard of apricots, plums, cherries, apples and pears.
At the front of the property is the lovely small Chiesa (chapel), accessed from the formal gardens. The Chiesa is currently used for weddings or as a small gymnasium.

The current owners bought Santo Stefano as a private home, but soon realised its business potential. With this
in mind, they began offering the property for holiday rentals. Initially the plan was to offer separate
apartments, but due to the importance and beauty of the property it became clear that it would have greater
appeal for those seeking exclusivity. Since then, the property has only ever been rented to one group of family
or friends at any one time.
Whilst the rental began as a hobby, La Chiesa di Santo Stefano soon became a highly sought after holiday
destination, and increasingly it became a desirable venue for romantic weddings. Within a very short period of
time, the owners discovered that their 'hobby' was becoming a full time business.
As they had moved to Italy for the purposes of early retirement, it was with regret that the decision was made
to sell the property and really retire. However, for a keen entrepreneur there is considerable scope for
development - either as a rental property, a wedding venue or a boutique hotel. We believe there is also an
excellent opportunity to develop the corporate side of the business.
