Casa Duetto is the right house for the times. The size of the house and fully restored cottage are just right at 180 sqm and 70 sqm, respectively. Both house and cottage are fully restored - so, no restoration project to manage. The buildings form a duetto with the pool, a lovely 9m x 4.5m pool with a big surround and big views situated in perfect harmony with the house and cottage. And, the land and the rest of the property form their own sort of duetto, with 3.76 hectares (around 4,500 sqm. of garden and the rest wooded) providing natural beauty and privacy for the pool and buildings.
At Casa Duetto the buildings have been carefully restored. Both house and cottage have been restored using local stone that gives the buildings a genuine look and feel. The main house is right-sized at 180 sqm. On the ground floor there's a good sized living room with fireplace and the custom kitchen includes and island. There's also a service bathroom and a big laundry and utility room. Off the ground floor is a large portico that provides much welcome shade in the summer months. Heading upstairs there are 3 bedrooms - the master suite with a 4 panel window that bathes the room in sunlight and sizable bathroom with shower. There are 2 comfortable guest bedrooms, both with high ceilings and beams. This duetto of guest bedrooms shares a bright, spacious family bathroom. From this floor there is access to the pool area.
Casa Duetto's cottage is done right and ready to enjoy. This two story building easily lives up to its role as duetto partner with the main house. The ground floor has a kitchen with dining table and a comfortable living room with fireplace. Upstairs there's one bedroom and one bathroom, and the same high ceilings with beams as the main house.
Casa Duetto's DUET of buildings opens up wide range of options for how you can enjoy the property. Obviously, Casa Duetto presents well as a private residence with cottage, ideal for an extended family and ideal for year-round living. Another option at hand is to run your own B&B at Casa Duetto - rent rooms in the main house while you live in the cottage during the high season. Add to these options the idea of whole-house rentals, an approach pursued with excellent results by the owners of Casa Duetto.
Moving outdoors we re-emphasize how all the pieces fit together - house, cottage, pool, sun terrace and garden. The 1 hectare garden is the perfect size and surrounds you in mature plantings, including fig & fruit trees. The rest of the land is wooded and is the ideal privacy buffer and source of wood for the fireplaces. The pool area is south facing and sun-drenched.
The views from Casa Duetto are a microcosm of the classic Le Marche landscape - views of the Sibillini Mountains, the towers of the Colfano Convent, olive groves, rolling hills and the spires of the hill-top duetto of nearby Cessapalombo (you can hear the bells) and Marche gem San Ginesio.
Access to Casa Duetto is easy, via a town-maintained, low traffic road. You don't have any need to maintain a long private access road - you turn off the town road into the parking area. Casa Duetto is a 2 minute drive to Cessapalombo (there's a market), 5 minutes to bustling Caldarola - Land of Castles - and 10 minutes to San Ginesio, called the "Balcony of the Sibillini, for its panoramic views and town parks. Casa Duetto is perfectly located for enjoying all there is to see, sip and sample in Le Marche. Adriatic beaches are 35-40 minutes away, the mountains (for winter skiing and summer picnics, mountain biking and hikes) are about 20 minutes' drive and provincial capital, Macerata is a 25 minute drive. The city of Tolentino with all manner of shopping and services is 20 minutes away as is the SS77 Superstrada that whisks you west to Umbria and east to the Adriatic. The Ancona airport is just an hour or so from Casa Duetto.
So, if you're looking for that rare property that puts it all together, harmoniously, look no further than Casa Duetto.
