Nestled in the historic center of the medieval town of Albacina, this character-filled property is the embodiment of Italian charm. Albacina, a gem at the gates of the Verdicchio valley, is renowned for the celebrated white wine “Verdicchio di Matelica“. The surrounding region is a picturesque landscape of rolling hills, vineyards, lush green mountains, and forests. The area boasts many quaint medieval villages, castles, abbeys, and churches, immersing you in the rich tapestry of Italy’s history.
Situated directly opposite the town’s primary church and just 200 meters from the main square and the entrance to the 12th-century castle, this house is at the heart of Albacina.
Covering a total area of 150 sq.m., the house spans three floors:
Ground Floor (west entrance): This level partly sits at street level and partly semi-basement. It houses a spacious cellar with a separate entrance, comprising three rooms historically used for wine production, storage, and firewood. There’s also another room previously used for storing wood and housing a stove (now decommissioned). These spaces offer potential for diverse uses.
Ground Floor (north entrance): Features three rooms and a bathroom – a bedroom (formerly used as a library-study), a living room, and a kitchen.
First Floor: Consists of three bedrooms and a bathroom. This level also provides access to the attic.
Roof: Fully renovated in 1997/1998, it is in good condition.
While the house has been uninhabited for roughly 10 years, it remains habitable with minor adjustments. Some renovation, especially in the bathrooms, electrical systems, and window frames, is recommended.
Garage and Cellar:
The property includes a spacious 30 sq.m. garage with an internal loft. Additionally, there’s an independent, ground-level cellar beside the garage. Our technician is available to discuss potential conversions for these spaces.
A panoramic land parcel of approximately 2000 sq.m. directly opposite the house is part of the property. Half of this fenced land is flat, suitable for a sun deck or even a swimming pool installation, which our technician can evaluate. The other half, elevated, boasts several trees. Historically, it has been used as a vegetable garden and orchard.
This property is not only ideal as a personal residence but also offers opportunities for short-term tourist rentals (via platforms like Airbnb or Booking.com) or even as a B&B.
Albacina is a hub for outdoor activities, with numerous trails for mountain biking and trekking, one of which leads to the Eremo dell’Aqcaurella – a former lookout tower transformed into a hermitage by Capuchin monks in the 1400s. It provides a beautiful meadow for picnics, a stream, and a freshwater spring. Additionally, local vineyards, cheese, and cured meat producers offer unforgettable tasting experiences.
Embrace the quintessential Italian lifestyle in this historic home in Albacina.
