The original is often more interesting than what comes after. Originality is hard to find and even harder to recreate. That holds true for lots of things, but is particularly true of Italian farmhouse restorations. The original touches, the quirky features, the connection with the past...frequently, they're "restored" out of the house. Not so with Casa Originale, as interesting as a Marche farmhouse true to its roots, as it is an amazing value for the money at its current price. See, we told you the original is more interesting!
Casa Originale is the real deal. It's rustic and very much in touch with it's past. Make no mistake, the house HAS been restored (for reasons of safety and comfort), but it was restored with a light touch, a sympathetic hand and a nod to the past. There are loads of rustic and original touches at Casa Originale. There are old beams, old floor tiles of varying types, a pizza/bread oven, the old stone slabs on the stairs, the old stone exterior, the old fireplace face, the shape of the house and the general "feel" of the place...it's exactly what you'd imagine when you think "rustic stone Le Marche farmhouse".
While interesting under any criteria, Casa Originale has come on the market at a price that's a nod to the past! Jokes aside, the house as priced is a terrific value for the money. It's a 200 sqm. old stone house with great views, a pool, vine covered stone loggia, olive trees, privacy, 3 bedrooms, central heating, a 100 sqm. accessory building and proximity to town, all for a price that will surprise.
The ground floor at Casa Originale has a large eat-in kitchen, a sitting room and a very nice sized living room with that original fireplace. The stone clad stairs lead to the first floor where there are 3 bedrooms and one bathroom. It's this last point, the one bathroom, that is Casa Originale's only weak point. However, a solution for adding a second bathroom already exists and would be easy and inexpensive to execute.
The views at Casa Originale are great at any price and a welcome surprise at a house in this price category. Off to one side there's an impressive slice of Sibillini Mountains. Directly off the pool area views that are Marche "originals" - the hill-top towns of Monte San Martino and Santa Vittoria, the iconic stepped Monte Ascensione and the all-around cultivated fields and lovely rolling hills.
Casa Originale has a 4,000 sqm. plot. The pool is 8mx6m and is ready to refresh you after a day enjoying the full sun, as Casa Originale has a nicely southern-facing orientation. In addition to the pool, there's the loggia, an original feature, with its canopy of twisty views. There is also a natural spring behind the house that supplies water to the plot for pool and garden.
Casa Originale is reached via a quiet town-maintained road that runs behind the house and reaches a few neighboring residences. As happy as you'll be at Casa Originale, it will also be a pleasure to head out as the house is close to many highly-thought-of hill-towns. The closest is Penna San Giovanni. Also nearby are Servigliano, Sant'Angelo in Pontano, Gualdo and others. The house is centrally located, 40-45 minutes from beaches and skiing, alike, and equidistant from provincial capitals Macerata and Fermo.
So, if you love the real thing, the original, AND you love a great deal, Casa Originale is waiting for you!
