Vecchio Arco is a simple, straightforward townhouse that happens to be perfectly located in the core of an ancient Marche hill-town. It sits on the old external fortified walls, a reason for which it enjoys terrific views over the surrounding countryside. Vecchio Arco is truly your chance to own a piece of history as the original building has been inhabited for centuries.
The building in which we find Vecchio Arco is four stories high, with the townhouse occupying the middle two floors. The townhouse is literally attached on one side the famous old arch. The exterior is VERY old brick with some stone thrown in to add character. Vecchio Arco also enjoys a rarity – a big, spacious 50+ square meter cobblestone terrace that comes to life 3 seasons a year with big flower pots full of color and lots of room for al-fresco dining, sunning or taking some shade with a good book in hand. There’s also a small balcony with an odd twist (you have to come see it!). Just off the terrace is a good-sized storage locker.
When we say Vecchio Arco is simple and straightforward, it’s because that is exactly what it is. Arrayed over two floors it’s just big enough to allow for comfortable living but not so big that it becomes a maintenance burden. It’s the quintessential “lock and leave” or “bolthole” sort of property. You enter the 1st floor up a short external staircase and arrive at the open plan kitchen (actually a very decent kitchen), living room, dining room area with fireplace. This area exits to the big cobblestone terrace out front. Upstairs is the one bathroom and two bedrooms, all with great views. The house is immediately habitable but could use some some imagination and maybe a coat of paint – hence the current VERY modest asking price. For 2-4 people, Vecchio Arco is perfect.
Not only is it perfect as your Marche base, it’s also perfect for enjoying lively Sarnano and its environs. First, Vecchio Arco is 90 seconds from the lovely piazza alta, the high piazza, with its iconic church, big views and frequent cultural and culinary events. The town theater is there, too, meaning you’re 90 seconds’ walk from your house to a focal point of your hill-top town. However, since Vecchio Arco is on the old outer wall, the area surrounding the townhouse is very quiet and peaceful. Note that parking for the townhouse is just 50m from the front door.
Sarnano is a very lively town that functions all year-round. There is a weekly market, numerous cafes and restaurants, small shops, modern supermarkets and lots of festivals to keep you well watered and fed! The meandering cobbled streets of the town are classics, lined with well kept homes, flower pots, flags and signs of everyday life. People tend to really love Sarnano because there’s always something going on and there are all sorts of services available to you there.
Vecchio Arco is also located close to some great hill-towns – San Ginesio, Amandola and others are all within 10-15 minutes. Adriatic beaches are 45 minutes away and in 15 minutes you'll be enjoying the natural beauty of the Sibillini Mountains – walking, birding, trekking, picnic areas, skiing, cycling, mountain biking and hang gliding are all at your disposal, just minutes away.... You can be in Umbria on the new Superstrada in under 1 hour. The Ancona Airport is 1:15 hour away and in under 90 minutes you can be at the Pescara or Perugia Airports.
So, when you start asking where you’ll find your ideal Le Marche townhouse, we’ll respond like the locals and tell you to head to the Vecchio Arco! You won’t miss it!
