Amongst a landscape of ancient villages reaching down to the sea, are the hills of Montefiore dell’Aso, a turreted town dedicated to art and culture. The house, Casale Lungo, rests on a soft slope exposed to the southern sun, in an elevated panoramic position, well protected from more northerly exposure. The cultivated land around the town quickly gives way to a rougher wilderness, with gullies and slopes beneath the warm sandstone walls of the town.
Casale Lungo, with its modern and elongated form, overlook a pleasant valley, quiet and hospitable, hosting many nurseries and garden centres.
The complex consists of two buildings, a farmhouse of 300 smq and an outbuilding of 30 smq. And within the exclusive courtyard of 5000 smq there are many olive trees.
Casale Lungo, on two floors, is solid and well constructed building which requires little restoration work. It has large and bright spaces, culminating in vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and sloping walls. The modern forms of the house and its dimensions are well suited to any modifications to achieve greater volume with loggias and porches, enabling one to remodel the entire inner building . The roof is in good structural condition, needing only insulation. It is possible to eliminate the external staircase providing for the inclusion of an internal staircase.
The annex on one floor is to be restored, and here it is possible to change its shape and position.
It is possible also to construct an infinity pool within the courtyard and a carport in the immediate vicinity of the house. These are just two of several other possible alternative solutions. The courtyard is also well suited to the creation a beautiful garden and the earthen wall behind the house lends itself to a host of creative possibilities.
Casale Lungo is located just 10 minutes from the sea and from Cupramarittima, a small seaside resort rich in Roman and pre-Roman heritage. The area is blessed with a mild climate, and is well connected to the bustling town of San Benedetto which is easily reached from the valley road and from the main roads.
