To Restore - FASCIA COSTIERA, ON THE COAST
Wonderful Castle-Convent, for sale in Le Marche.
its first inhabitants were monks, which later became a Castle, today the site has remained isolated as then and can be reached by a picturesque dirty road that cuts through the fields to the wooded hill, where the church still stands and what remains of the conventual structures. Approaching the site you can still see the castellan vocation of the site, surrounded on one side by cliffs and on the other by the expanse of cultivated fields which are also included in the sale.
It represents one of the oldest testimonies of a typical early medieval monastic settlement of the Marca Fermana. The castle was initially fortified and had inside the church and the houses (cells) of the monks. Over the centuries, various communities of monks have followed one another and the building has undergone numerous works that have substantially changed its original appearance.It then passed into private hands that have renovated and transformed it into a country house, with an adjoining chapel and farmhouse.
The Convent / castle represents a splendid opportunity to purchase a somewhat unique property.
The convent / castle is to be restored, although the external walls are in good structural condition, on the ground floor there are the old stables, cellars and the church, while on the first and second floor the rooms.
Outside there is also an annex to be restored.
Of particular interest is the naturalistic context in which the castle is inserted and which must have remained unchanged since ancient times. Numerous centuries-old oaks arise around the castle and along the road in front while in the forest there are the main tree and floristic species typical of the Mediterranean scrub (pine, laurel, maple, juniper, broom, holly, holly, etc.).

The Castle / Convent is now a private property with about 12 ha of cultivated fields.
