South-west of Macerata and Ancona, this 19th century stone house is in Cessapalombo. Accommodation at Casa Campanile includes two living rooms on the ground floor, one with glazed doors to the garden. Upstairs are two en suite bedrooms, with space for more rooms. The owners bought the building as a ruin and have completed the plumbing and electrics, floor tiles, doors and stairs, but more work is still required. Views take in the surrounding countryside, a bell tower and the medieval town of San Ginesio.
In the Country View Estates neighbourhood, close to the Six Roads area (where amenities are), this house comes with a swimming pool and is close to the sea (across a road). Inside is an open-plan living room and kitchen opening onto a patio beside the pool. There are two en suite bedrooms and an office, which could work as a third bedroom. There is also a laundry room and store. The house is at the end of a cul-de-sac.
