This fantastic fixer-upper at an amazing price offers enormous potential to anyone wishing to restore an old house at their own pace. It is only 20 minutes from the beach, combining Italian town living with summer vacations to remember.
Situated on a cobbled street in the hilltop town of Ripatransone, this charming townhouse offers all you need in a vacation home.
The ground floor is home to a large kitchen, sitting room and bathroom, with a narrow doorway leading from the kitchen down to a large vaulted basement that can be converted into a spacious living area. The sitting room has double doors that lead out onto the narrow street, making the room light and airy.
A central staircase leads to a small landing area that houses another bathroom (although we recommend removing this room to create more space in the kitchen, including the doorway that leads down to the basement, as it sits directly above it.)
The first floor is home to three spacious bedrooms (although one is technically a landing) that offer stunning views of the hillsides and the streets below. If budget permits, the landing area can be converted into a bathroom, giving an en-suite to the master bedroom, or a shared bathroom for both bedrooms. A staircase takes you up to the attic which has been converted into another living area, with a window in the roof and double doors that lead out onto the roof terrace, overlooking the street below and Le Marche’s hillsides. The attic room needs its floors reinforced but this can be done during phased work.
This is a great renovation project at a great price, and at the heart of a Medieval town, offers a fantastic opportunity to become a part of Le Marche town life.
