Casa Poesia is quite literally poetry in the Marche countryside. It's a fully habitable house of 300 sqm. Its exterior walls are tell a story...naturally and genuinely loaded with character. There are vestiges of old arches in the brick work, old bricks mixed in with a sort of rosy render with a patina you could never duplicate. There's also that classic Marche architectural feature, the external staircase.
Inside, Casa Poesia has a relaxed, rustic casualness. This is not an interior that's sleek and spartan, nor is it formulaic like lots of restorations that change the basic character of the original houses. Instead, it's simple, relaxed and rustic – the general article. For many of you it's the poetic image you have of your Marche country farmhouse. For others of you it might require some modification that's made easier to do given that the asking price on the house is €499,000.
The layout at Casa Poesia follows the original footprint and organization of the original farmhouse that dates to the mid-1800s. What is very important to note is that 10 years ago the owners undertook a major structural restoration of the house. That means the house complies with modern structural standards and that this is work you won't have to do, or pay for. It's done, and you can move forward with confidence.
On the ground floor Casa Poesia has a very large casual country kitchen with a big, welcoming dining table. Also in this space is a large dining room area. There's a sizable living room with an original arch, a study and a WC. Heading upstairs there are 3 bedrooms, one of which is ensuite. There is also a big first floor lounge space and a second, smaller kitchen that could be easily transformed into an office space or a 4th bedroom with ensuite bathroom. If running a B&B is in your plans, you could use this double kitchen setup as part of your division of residence and business spaces.
Casa Poesia sits in poetic harmony with its surroundings, in an area of Le Marche that has for centuries inspired poets (more on that in a moment). Casa Poesia enjoys impressive sea-views You can even see sailboats on the Adriatic. Equally impressive is the view toward the majestic Sibillini Mountains. The house sits in a high position, frequently surrounded by summer sunflowers, that affords views of the rolling hills of the surrounding countryside and the elegant hill-top town of Recanati. The views, in short, are outstanding.
When we talk about an area and a house that have inspired poets, we're not waxing poetic. Recanati is the birthplace of famed poet Giacomo Leopardi, who wrote his verse in the 1800s while gazing out over this very landscape. Not only do you enjoy this same landscape from Casa Poesia, you also see the castle that was once the home of the famed early 20th century tenor, Beniamino Gigli. It's no wonder, then, that Recanati is an elegant, culturally-rich hill-town, with art, music, poetry and all things cultural still a vibrant part of the town's fabric and daily life.
Let's shift for a moment from poetry to poetry-in-motion! Casa Poesia is perfectly located. It's 5 minutes to town and 5 minutes to the coast – an amazing convenience. Close-by are Porto Recanati, Potenza Picena, Montelupone and Loreto. Great places to eat and numerous award-winning vineyards are all nearby. Iconic Monte Conero, an example of natural poetry, is 25 minutes away and the Ancona Airport Is 30-35 minutes up the Autostrada.
The plot at Casa Poesia has a certain poetry to it as well. The 9,000 sqm. of land are incredibly well cared for and well-planted. There are more than 50 olive trees, some grape vines and over 70 fruit trees – pears, figs, apples, plumbs and two types of peaches – a cornucopia of natural goodness, all productive, all organic. Just the plot, with this sort of productive plant coverage and sunny orientation, could fetch €100,000 or more! Without hesitation we can say that the plot at Casa Poesia is the best planted, best situated of any on our site. In addition to this, the plot includes a 50 sqm. that can be restored to a cottage, workshop, garage or art studio. The only thing not currently at Casa Poesia is a pool. That's easily accomplished as there are numerous sunny places on the plot to site a pool. The plot is very private but not isolated, a there are a couple of neighboring houses you don't even notice from Casa Poesia.
As a final note, the asking price of Casa Poesia merits particular mention. For €499,000 even the most experienced house hunter will be hard pressed to find a home of this size, with architectural character sea-views, proximity to beaches and towns, an amazing plot and a 50 sqm. outbuilding for same money.
