Saint Stephen Monastery is a stunning group of buildings of such rare beauty in the heart of the region Marche, between Cingoli and Macerata. The real estate is set in the medieval city of Treia, a town-planning gem.
It used to be a monastery with a church built to honor the protomartyr Saint Stephen. Substantial and formal renovation works took place in 2000, keeping untouched the soul of this place but bringing back the original beauty of the building. The idea was to use this place as a residential house and holiday house, but the church was often used and it is still used for celebration of christening and weddings. In fact this place is magical, with its large and flat lawns and a lake that offer the best background landscapes for such events, that reminds of romantic fairy tales and beauty in its ideal shape.
The area is absolutely discreet so that you could throw parties and events of any kind.
The surrounding plot of land over a surface of 1 hectare and a half (i.e. 5 acres) was turned into a golf course that comprises 5 holes, a bunker and automatic irrigation system.
You enter the real estate through a perspectival and beautiful entrance, a tree-lined road of 80 meters with cypresses and olive trees that introduces and reminds of a life that is unknown in everyday situations. This is actually the power or Eros of the landscape in the region Marche: a well-kept secret into usual things that suddenly expresses its sacredness in the aesthetic structure, awakening the sleepy strings of our deepest egos.
