Country house with guest apartment, quiet but not isolated location with 6 hectares of land, just a few kilometres from a village with all amenities.
The House and garden.
The country house was completely restored in 2008, using original building materials and paying a lot of attention to detail.
It is surrounded by a fenced garden (3000m2) with lavender, rosemary and salvia gardens and an orchard with cherries, apples, pears, plums and pomegranates.. The surrounding area of 5.5 hectares consists of farmland and woods. It borders to the little river and has its own source of water. The estate is therefore also very suitable for keeping animals and growing vegetables or for operating a bed & breakfast or renting apartments.
Total area of living space (excluding hallways and stairwells): 265 m2.
On the ground floor is a large music room of 43 m2 and a guest apartment for rent of 40 m2. The rooms on the ground floor have patio doors to the garden.
On the first floor is the living room with open kitchen of 46m2, a large bedroom (29m2) which adjoins a spacious bathroom (11 m2) with toilet, bath and shower. There is an additional WC in the hallway. On the back is a south-west balcony.
On the second floor there is a study room (23m2), a guest room (23m2) and a third bathroom. (7m2). In addition, there is a large storage space (38m2) in which more rooms can be made.

The small estate Isola del Sorbo is located in the lovely valley of the river Candigliano in the northern part of the Le Marche region.
Le Marche is a rural area with many medieval villages and towns, located in central Italy between the Apennines and the Adriatic Sea. Culture is abundant here. You will find silence and space in this region, because the interior of LeMarche has not been inflicted by mass tourism.
Around the house you have a view of a rolling farmland: meadows and fields, alternating with forest. A paradise for hikers.
To the north and northwest of the house are two lakes. The last is an ideal swimming spot, a ten-minute walk away.
In the southern direction you will see impressive mountains. Above Piobbico (4.5 km away), the Monte Nerone roams and further south we see the Monte Catria and Monte Acuto. Towards the Adriatic coast, in the direction of Fano (already known 2000 years ago) the hills are getting lower. The beach is only 50 minutes away.
The nearby (4.5 km) village is Piobbico. There are restaurants, cafes, a bank, a pharmacy, two petrol pumps and shops for all daily goods. At 10 km, the small town of Urbania and a little further north (30 km) is the famous Renaissance town of Urbino. Gubbio, Perugia and Asissi are a little further away, but those towns and a journey through the Apennines are very worthwhile.
