Porto Sant'Elpidio, Fermo, Marche, Italia
A small farm facing the sea, in the south of the Marche, about 3km from the beaches of Porto Sant’Elpidio. Consisting of two farmhouses and an outbuilding, it includes two-and-a-half hectares of land, and with its sea views it feels like Paradise.
The property is reached by a well-maintained road, not far from a small village, and as soon as you arrive you’llappreciate the owner’s deep love of plants and trees.
The first building has been recently restored, in accordance with all anti-seismic regulations: effectively it’s two apartments, one on the ground floor and the other on the first floor, around 60 square meters each (for a total of approximately 165 square meters) and each comprising two bedrooms, a bathroom with shower, brand-new kitchen-diner and a living room with fireplace. Beautiful materials have been thoughtfully employed throughout, the wooden beams and terracotta tiles that make up the ceilings are quintessentially Marche farmhouse-style. Wooden double-glazed windows, with LPG heating and boiler. Mains water and electricity are connected. This building has a certificate of habitability.
Additionally, there’s an agricultural outbuilding of 72 square meters with a restored roof, currently used forstorage and as a double garage for cars, but it could also be transformed into a dwelling.
The third building is a farmhouse requiring restoration, 125 square meters over two floors, overlooking the sea.
The land is planted with olive trees and fruit orchards, as well as many classic Mediterranean shrubs, a large vegetable garden which is almost a real farmyard with geese and chickens! There is also a well!
In short, this is a living farm close to the Adriatic Sea, and delightfully difficult to find! The hamlet, less than 500 meters away, has a supermarket, pharmacy, bar, post office and primary school. A 3km trip and you’ll be in Porto Sant’Elpidio with its convenient access to the A14 motorway.
