Casale Silene is a residence of around 360 sq.m, plus 106 sq.m of basement, surrounded by 3.7 hectares of land with pool and a small olive grove with 25 full-grown trees, situated in the hills a few minutes from the beach with a stunning sea view.
The location is peaceful and easily accessible, Senigallia (7 km) and Marotta (6 km) are less than 10 minutes drive away, and in less than an hour it is possible to reach art cities such as Urbino (64 km) or some of the most famous beach resorts of Romagna’s riviera, such as Riccione (58 km) or Rimini (67 km).
The nearest airport is Ancona Falconara, about half an hour away (30 km), while the connection with the A14 motorway is just 10 km away.
Description of buildings
With two floors above ground and one below, Casale Silene is built from two separate units which have been carefully joined, in spite of their different exteriors, in traditional brick and plaster.
Having undergone total restoration which was completed in 2005, the house comprises the basement floor (approximately 106 sq.m in total) with a large multipurpose space, ideal as a games room, and a large cellar/storeroom.
The ground floor hosts an ample entrance, the large living room of around 60 sq.m with fireplace, the kitchen, a living room, a guest bathroom for the floor and a double bedroom with private bathroom for potential staff.
An open staircase leads to the first floor where there is a central sitting room, on two staggered levels and with large French windows which open onto the terraces, and which acts as a connection point for access to the 5 bedrooms and the 4 bathrooms.
State and finishing
Casale Silene, which was completely rebuilt in 2005, still has the charming architectural characteristics typical of Le Marche, with part of the external walls in original brick and the roof covering in antique tiles.
Inside, there are pretty brick floors, ancient doors which have been carefully restored with shaped solid wood cornicing and bathrooms with plank supported sinks.
The ceilings, which have also been rebuilt, feature beams and tiles or beams and planks, to retain the charm of a grand country house.
A long lane flanked by flowering hedgerows leads to the villa, which is surrounded by around 7,000 sq.m of grounds with lawn, ancient trees and various local plants, all with walkways and tuff steps.
The large pool with hydrotherapy corner is a few metres from the villa, while a little further away there is a basketball court which could be converted into a tennis court.
Finally, the property includes approximately 3 hectares of land.
Use and potential uses
The house, due to its proximity to Senigallia and the sea, would be perfect either as a main residence or as a holiday home.
With its size and the number of bedrooms and bathrooms the property would also be ideal as a small guest house.
