Ca’ del Pero, renovation of a farmhouse in Cingoli
Ca’ del Pero is a farmhouse in Cingoli in a valley of centuries-old olive trees, entirely visible from its own swimming pool. Located in Cingoli, the restoration works were finished by our company after the previous restoration that had already partially renovated the first floor, where the sleeping area is located. In spite of the fact that it had been partially renovated, in fact, the ground floor had remained completely untouched, as its old use was a stable and an animal feed warehouse for small farmyard animals.
During the restoration the ground floor has been completely reclaimed, dismantling the previous use and providing it with a living area: a kitchen, a dining room, the living room with a fireplace (a typical and traditional feature in the region Marche). There is also a pergola, where you can enjoy the cool summer breeze, have outdoors lunches and dinners enjoying the tranquility of the countryside. On the first floor, where the sleeping area is located, everything has remained unchanged, both the two bedrooms and the bathroom. Then there is a third floor, an attic, not very practical but useful as a storage room.
It is important to say, that local materials were used to create the new rooms, i.e. kitchen, dining room, living room, laundry and bathroom. The interiors have been treated with colored lime, while the exposed oak beams have kept their typical dark color.
In relation to the outdoors area, probably the most particular renovation work that has been done is the installation of the swimming pool in an uphill area, about a meter and a half higher than the house, so a bit more far than usual. It was decided to do that, because of the natural sloping problems of the land, but also to allow a better overview, so that owners and guests could enjoy the panorama at a higher level compared to the farmhouse.
