A special place deserves a special house. You need to find the right place and put the right house there and you get that special property that checks most of the boxes -- you know, all those things on the list that never seem to be “checked” at the same house – traditional restoration, great views, great access, proximity to classic hill-towns, spacious rooms, all ensuite baths, a master bedroom panoramic terrace, a gently sloping plot, privacy, outbuildings to restore, etc., etc. Well, there's a lovely property just 3 minutes from Sant'Angelo in Pontano that checks ALL the boxes above. Is it any wonder that we call this house CASA SPECIALE, “The Special House”?
Having read the above description of Casa Speciale you can stop now. We've already told you all you need to know. If you're intrigued with Casa Speciale, it's our pleasure to take you on the tour.
First, the complex of buildings is special. A sizable and comfortable 260 sqm. house starts the tour. Plus, there are two BIG outbuildings to restore. That means Casa Speciale is the ideal year-round residence, a perfect rental property and, with those two outbuildings, it's just about the best property we've seen for running a business like a country house or B&B, or for two families or two friends who want to invest together.
The house at Casa Speciale has been faithfully restored using old, traditional materials. The owners maintained the original and unique form of the house, so it's not one of those boxy restorations. There are old beams and old lintels. Pigeon roosts add character to the beautifully pointed external stone.
Given its unique footprint, Casa Speciale has a unique interior layout. While maintaining the old character of the house, the owners created a spacious, bright and open-plan interior. On the ground floor, there's a BIG, eat-in kitchen. There's also a formal dining room. The living room has an elegant “step-down” feature as you enter the light-filled and view-facing room. In addition, there's a WC and office nook on this floor. The staircase is spacious and open, as are the first and ground floor landings.
Upstairs, the owners have created another special feature of Casa Speciale – they've chosen to construct 3 big, comfortable bedrooms, EACH with its own ensuite bathroom – a really special touch. Note, too, that if you want more bedrooms in the main house a simple re-jiggering of a wall or two gets you at least one more bedroom. Or, just restore one or both outbuildings and you'll have more bedrooms that most local hotels! Also upstairs is a welcoming snug/lounge with a fireplace, a laundry and storage space.
A really special feature is that from both the snug and the master suite, there's access to a lovely terrace that takes in the views. The master suite also has a walk-in dressing area.
Surely on your list of “must-haves” we’ll find a special view. You can check that one off the list! What great views! To say they're “special” undersells the actual. Sweeping panoramic views of the Sibillini Mountains are complimented by multiple hilltop towns, rolling fields of summer sunflowers and a postcard-like view of hilltop gem Sant'Angelo in Pontano. From three sides of Casa Speciale you enjoy really special views. And what better way to enjoy those views than from the 1st floor terrace, the ground floor loggia and pergola?
Casa Speciale's plot is big (2-acres), private and mostly flat. In fact it's ideal for the only special thing you'll not find currently at Casa Speciale – a pool. The southern exposure and flat plot are perfect for a pool. Note that planning permission for a pool has already been granted and needs only to be renewed. The outbuildings are special, too, in that they add volume, upside and added-value to the property. Restore one or both and you've got a guest cottage or apartments. They're also great if your dream is to run a special B&B. Even more special and rare is the old GROTTO on the property...it's ancient and cool inside and you can even fit a table and chairs inside. The owners like to store their olive oil and wine there.
Access to the house is easy – just follow the town-maintained white road from Sant'Angelo. You’re 3 minutes from the piazza, and the panoramic walkways, cafes and restaurants. You could walk to town in under 30 minutes. Residents consider Sant'Angelo a very special town. Local hilltop town San Ginesio, Colmurano and Loro Piceno are each about 10 minutes away. Beaches and mountains are equidistant at 35 minutes. Casa Speciale is also special in terms of airport service – choose from Ancona (1 hour), Pescara (1:15), Perugia (1:25) or Rome/Bologna (each just under 3 hours away).
What a special property! Truly worthy of its name. Welcome to Casa Speciale.
