San Ginesio, Le Marche. The British owner, a renowned architect, has completely demolished the old farmhouse and built a stylish new “country” villa using new and original materials. The “flow” of the house is impressive with many continuous spaces and a sense of proportion. From almost every room the view is more than great. The house has four bedrooms but it would be easy to create a fifth bedroom. In the (lean to) annexe is an open office, a gym, a technical room and more storage space. The garden, completely irrigated, covers 4,400sqm. The swimming pool is unusually long at 17m – perfect for a game of water volleyball!
