Il Riposo

Il Riposo has recently been sympathetically restored into an elegant three-storey home and is available for fractional ownership opportunities through property developer Appassionata.

Situated in the historic village of Patrignone, this four-bedroomed family home faces the Adriatic Sea and offers a taste of authentic life in Le Marche. Design details can be found throughout the beautifully furnished interior where a sense of understated Italian luxury prevails.

“I came across the travertine floor tiles at a reclamation yard and also spotted some beautiful antique liberty tiles tucked away in the corner. I bought the lot! I placed them throughout the house as statement pieces. The bathrooms are decorated with Venetian plaster, a natural lime-based waterproof product. It is applied in layers by a skilled artisan. It can be tinted or coloured using natural colourants and sealed with a protective layer of wax, and creates an iridescent finish, giving the appearance of depth and movement,” explains Apassionista owner and interior designer, Dawn Cavanagh.

The house enjoys a large walled garden with open views of the rolling countryside and nearby hilltop towns. The swimming pool is on the lower secluded terrace. The upper level provides the perfect spot for alfresco dining and entertaining with family and friends.

“I always work with a local blacksmith and his son, who can make virtually anything from metal. They made some very elegant cream stair rails for the inside staircase and around the garden terrace. The linens were purchased from a small shop in Fermo, Capriotti. The range, all Italian, is high quality and elegant. High thread count cotton sheets and embroidered bedspreads adorn the beds.”
