Casa Benessere is a very unique property. The fact that there are 4 restored buildings plus a ruin to restore is a rarity. Even rarer is that they all fit together in harmony, creating an integrated whole that forms a lovely compound. Then, there's the view – a spectacular, 270º view of the Sibillini Mountains and all the rolling hills and sunflower fields that roll out between them and Casa Benessere. The location walking distance to San Ginesio, a highly desirable town called the Balcony of the Sibillini, is a real bonus. The pool and the tranquil plot of 2.5 hectares (6.25 acres) are yours to enjoy. Casa Benessere's flexibility in terms of how you can use the property is amazing. It works as your private residence, as a terrific structure for a B&B, an extended family compound or a serious rental business. The fact that you can have all this, for €649,000, not only enhances your spiritual sense of wellbeing, but also works wonders for your fiscal wellness, too!
The complex at Casa Benessere delivers an impressive 655 sqm of volume. Here's how it takes shape – There's the main house at 170 sqm, the guest house at 135 sqm, the restaurant/lodging at 100 sqm, the cottage at 50 sqm and the ruin-to-restore at 200+ sqm.
Obviously, Casa Benessere's main structure is the main house. It's a comfortable, right-sized 170 sqm home. On the ground floor we find the living room, dining room, kitchen, larder, laundry and WC. There's a lovely arched transition from the living room to the dining room, with a two-sided fireplace serving the two areas. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms and one good sized bathroom. The house is simple, rustic with beams and a traditional fireplace. Casa Benessere's exterior is magnificent local stone. The house has a signature feature in the form of a huge loggia. Even the most intense city dweller will chill-out and downshift into a state of wellness with a seat under the loggia and a chilled prosecco in hand.
The three other buildings are ideal for the extended family or, if your plan is to help others enjoy the wellbeing at Casa Benessere, for your B&B idea. The first is currently setup as a restaurant with professional kitchen. A section of this building includes a bedroom with bathroom. The second building is setup as a 5 bedroom accommodation, with each bedroom having its own bathroom. The third is a cottage that has 1 double bedroom, 1 single bedroom and a bathroom. Note that these buildings can be converted to any use – an art studio, an office, self contained apartment, a stand alone cottage, etc.
The views at Casa Benessere are outstanding. These are big, impressive views, some of the best of any property on our site. The Sibillini Mountains are there, for your enjoyment, front and center. No two days are the same as the view is constantly changing, modified by the transit of the sun, the light that inspires artists and the effects of the seasons. The wellbeing one feels while sitting in awe of this spectacular natural setting is something the written word cannot begin to capture.
The plot at Casa Benessere is ample at 2.5 hectares (6.25 acres). It gives you privacy and a sense of space. You're immersed in green space and direct sunlight. The plot has a full southern exposure that means you get full summer sun and the benefit of the last sun of the day in the winter months. The plot is dotted with olive trees, fruit trees, herbs, berries and all sort of other goodies to enhance your sense of wellness. The big pool at Casa Benessere is situated in such a way as to create an infinity effect. Poolside is literally a balcony on the Sibillini and the rolling Marche countryside.
While Casa Benessere is immersed in nature, it's not even for a moment a property isolated from the rest of the world. In fact, access is excellent. The drive into the plot comes directly off a provincial road that gets you everywhere with ease.
You can walk to town, in about 20 minutes. The owners do it all the time. And the town is one of the province's most desirable, the hill-top gem of San Ginesio. In addition to its weekly market on Sundays, it's well-equipped with shops and services, its Colle Park is spectacular, with amazing views, a daily passeggiata, playground for kids and the occasional outdoor concert. The piazza in San Ginesio is closed to cars on summer evenings, creating a sense of wellness for all who enjoy its beauty, history, hospitality and award winning gelateria! People who come from where we come from can't even believe this sort of quality of life and sense of community are even possible in this day and age. But, they are, and they're just a 3-4 minute drive from Casa Benessere.
Also nearby Casa Benessere are Gualdo, Sarnano, Caldarola, Loro Piceno and Colmurano. That means all the best things to see, sip and sample are within very easy reach. Adriatic beaches are at 35-40 minutes, the mountains (for winter skiing and summer picnics, mountain biking and hikes) as well as the invigorating mountain lake, Fiastra, are about 25 minutes away. The provincial capital, Macerata is 20-25 minutes' drive. The Ancona airport is just an hour or so from Casa Benessere. This is a terrific area to base your Marche investment, business, holiday home or year-round residence.
As we close on Casa Benessere it's worth again mentioning that in addition to satisfying your soul, the asking price of €649,000 will enhance your sense of fiscal wellbeing! All that Casa Benessere offers for this price is either NOT found in other more expensive properties, or, if you're lucky enough to find such a place, be prepared to pay another €200k or more for what you get here.
So, if you've worked a lifetime and dreamed for years of finding true wellness in the Italian countryside, look no further than Casa Benessere!
