The small and unpretentious but precious farmhouse is set in the quiet countryside. The project has already been approved, and this is important in an area where building is restricted. You will have just to decide which plants you want in your garden (2,5 ha) and where to locate the kitchen. In the offer everything is included. The house is provided also with solar panels that will make it possible to heat the house at no cost all the year round. Here the detail of Casino delle Due Apse: 2,5 ha of land on which there is an house in ruins complete of licence to be restored as seen in the drawings in the section *Details. The house has an underground floor and develops on two storeys. The plant is typical of the rural houses of the area. The façade stretches South and an other wing towards North-East for a total size of 203sqm. It is a unique chance. The house was the dream of a young couple that was taken far away by professional choices. It is now possible to make their efforts fruitful proceeding with the works that are by now approved by the competent councils. Urbino council is very strict and lots of bureaucracy is needed to get building/restoring permissions. A stunning landscape is so preserved, and this is perfect for you that would buy the house and all the licenses. Building again sometimes brings about unwonted consequences, but this is not the case. After having accepted the offer, in three months time you will be comfortably set in your house rebuilt as it was 100 years ago. The property is just 10km from Urbino (that is N-W) and only 3 from the closest place provided with all facilities (chemist’s, corner shops, church…). A gravel road, in good conditions links the property to the main road. There a lot of houses abandoned after the World War II are now being restored and inhabited. Two houses are close to the property (200m) but are not within sight. The natural landscape that can be seen from the Casino is just the roof of a stable owned by a Swiss farmer. The property is set in a quiet area that is anyway inhabited. The valley below is cut through by a narrow stream, called Apsa that in the valley flows into an other stream. This has given the name of Casino delle due Apse to the property. The house is protected by the slope of the hill towards North. The slope on which the property is set slopes gently down into the stream. It is anyway far away from the house so it is no noisy nor dangerous in case of floods. The house was built in stone at the beginning of 1900. The shape is typical of the rural buildings in the area. The restoring project comprehends also a paved yard on which verandas and patio can be built. The ground floor (77sqm) is divided into a small entrance, bathroom, a huge living room with kitchenette that can anyway be divided. The underground floor (77sqm) is linked to the rest of the house by a staircase. The three big rooms are lighted by small windows. There is also a bathroom so the place can be used both as a living room to greet guest or as a studio. The first floor is slightly smaller (48smq) but two of the three bedrooms have inside toilet and cloakroom. The restoring project has been planned by an engineer specialized in building respecting nature (bio-building) so all the details have been cured to get the most out of the materials the house is made of. Solar panels that heat the water that will then pass through the walls and heat the house at almost no cost. There is also an alternative central heating, it can be also fuelled with gas or wood. The house was anciently built with no side facing North so to avoid useless exposition to the cold air. The passage of water through the walls can be much useful also in summer to cool the rooms. The final price of the restoration is supposed to be 250,000/300,000 Euro. Choosing traditional materials the price would fall at least of 30%. The restoring licence obtained from the Urbino council provides for a country house activity, that is to book rooms. If this is not your case, it is possible to make the licence become a simple “private dwelling” one. The offer includes two water springs, one provided with a well, and 2,5 ha of land that faces the house where there are some walnut trees but that is almost in state of abandonment. Some more land is at the rear of the house, being well exposed to the sun it could be perfect as an orchard or as kitchen garden. The main advantage of this offer is the chance of building a house choosing wise materials to avoid useless dispersions of heat and waste of money. There won’t be any waste of time then to ask for all the licences because this work has already been done. Presently some young oak trees watch over the ruins. The stones of the side walls should be used to rebuild the façade. The house has been completely abandoned and the vegetation has covered anything. The place is now wonderful just for the vegetation, but once the house will be restored it will have a different, but always stunning view. The owners just ask to come and see how it will look like, once solid and strong over the two Apse. The property is for sale at 80.000€.
