Casa Ragoni-Francia - Imposing Le Marche Property in Italy for sale

If you are looking for a beautiful home of substance in Central Italy, you really should see this Italian property, of about 350 square meters, which is set in an unspoilt, hilly landscape of great beauty near Camporotondo di Fiastrone in the Le Marche province of Macerata. This Italian property for sale, which is reached via a private road cutting through ancient woodland, consists of two acres of land and two elegant rural buildings, one large and one small, in the shade of two majestic, ancient oaks. Within the property there is a large garden and a substantial sloping park, ample room for a swimming pool, or even a large pond, for which there is a source of natural water from underground.

These rural Italian buildings, originally built in 1765, used to be the dwelling of the Francia family, peasant farmers who for over 200 years lived here, a part of the vast estate of the local, ancient, aristocratic Ragoni family. The history of the Ragonis goes back to the time of William the Conqueror.


The main Italian property at Ragoni-Franciarestored-marche-rustico

The main Italian house, all in sandstone, old bricks and oak beams, is substantial and indeed very atractive, with about 280 square meters of living space. It faces south and enjoys stunning views on the Fiastrone Valley and the distant Sibillini Mountains. The building is full of light and has a ground floor with plenty of space for reception rooms, kitchen/dining room, bathrooms and utility rooms, and a large portico for eating “al fresco” in front of the marvellous landscape. On the first floor there is room for four large, sunny bedrooms and bathrooms en suite.

imposing le marche propertyThe original Le Marche Property

The old, original Le Marche Rustico, called Casa Francia since 1765, fell into neglect in recent times, was beyond repair. We have therefore reconstructed it in the same shape and position as the old one, making use of its very building materials. The Le Marche property rebuilt on the existing footprint is even more robust than the original as the reconstruction has followed anti-seismic rules and given the building mighty foundations. Despite this the house retains the architectural features and flavour of the ancient building: arches, niches, oak beams, terracotta ceilings and window sills, etc.Le Marche vies of the property

This Marche property has all the features to become an elegant and majestic country residence, due to the beauty of its location, the impressive approach, its considerable size, its architectural impressive features, the artistic, antique marble details, the presence of a decent sized ancillary building , the private parkland surrounding it and the unspoilt, bucolic setting that, given the enterely rural nature of this area, will remain intact for a long time to come.

The ancillary Le Marche property

The smaller Le Marche house has  been reconstructed to create a nice, self contained, independent apartment of about 70 square meters, with a large picture window overlooking the lovely landscape. This building would ideally be given to visiting friends, or to paying guests, or retained by the future owners as a studio for working, thinking or storage,according to one’s needs

This Italian property will be sold for a price of 650.000 euros, excluding the internal finishing of the buildings (doors, windows, floors, bathrooms, central heating, etc.). We will be happy to carry out the finish of the project to the buyer’s specificationsbig-house-for-sale-le-marche-italy

Connections and the position of these Italian properties

This area of Le Marche, in spite of its loveliness is well connected with the outside world. The charming little town of Camporotondo di Fiastrone is just a couple of miles downhill, while the lovely and ancient San Ginesio is four miles away, down a very attractive country road. Four miles down the Chienti Valley there's a fast motorway (SS77) that connects the Adriatic Sea with the interior and Central Italian cities such as Perugia, Spoleto, Assisi, etc., all of which are  little more than an hour away. Rome, Bologna and Florence are no more than 2.5 hour drive and the Ancona International Airport is only 50 minutes away. But much nearer is a score of beautiful medieval towns, often on hilltops and with fortified walls. The small town of Camporotondo di Fiastrone (described with others on our local towns page), is 5 minutes away. Other nice towns nearby include Sarnano and San Ginesio (both of which have been named amongst the most beautiful villages in Italy). There are also Gualdo, Penna San Giovanni, Tolentino, Caldarola and many more.
