** THIS IS A WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY TO ACQURE A NEW LIFESTYLE AND BUSINESS IN A BEAUTIFUL REGION OF ITALY **
This property will appeal to someone who appreciates stunning peaceful countryside, a truly energy efficient house and an organic farm with a successful beekeeping business.
The property includes nearly five hectares of land, a five bedroom energy efficient house, a second building that can be extended to provide additional accommodation, 120 organic beehives and honey laboratory, 60 olive trees, free range egg producing hens, flour producing wheat fields and 3 dwarf sheep! All agricultural equipment will be left and the owner (a member of the Italian Organic Farming Association) will provide free support and advice for one year if requested.
The main house was constructed in 2006 and is built entirely in solid timber with highly insulated external walls and roof structure. The heating and hot water is generated by a fully integrated system of thermal solar panels, an enclosed wood burning fireplace and a pellet stove making this a very cost efficient building.
On the ground floor the house comprises a large open plan living area with a fully fitted modern kitchen and dining area with adjacent study. This floor also offers a guest bedroom and bathroom with shower. Full glazed doors open from the living room to a substantial L-shaped covered portico with lovely rural views in both directions.
The first floor offers four bedrooms and a family bathroom.
A feature of the house is the abundance of natural light, high ceilings and the panoramic views of countryside and distant mountains resulting from its elevated position.
The property is conveniently located five minutes from the popular town of Petritoli with its excellent restaurants and local facilities. The larger historic town of Fermo with one of the most beautiful piazzas in Italy is only 15 minutes away and the sea can be reached in 20 minutes.
