DESCRIPTION



MEDIEVAL TOWER WITH POOL AND LAND FOR SALE, TUSCANY



GEOGRAPHIC POSITION

Located in the countryside of Tuscany, in a panoramic position on the slope of a hill near Poppi and Arezzo, 10th century medieval watch tower converted into luxury villa.

Easily accessed via a well-maintained unpaved road from the small village nearby (800 m) where all the services are available, this former watch tower grants a quick access to several medieval towns of Tuscany: the peculiar Poppi (12km; 20’), the birthplace of Michelangelo Buonarroti (38km; 1h), the city of the battle Anghiari (48km; 55’), the Renaissance Florence (61km; 1h 25’) and the beautiful Siena (105km; 1h 45’).

Even the Franciscan sanctuary of La Verna (28km; 45’) is easily and quickly reached.

Useful airports to reach the property are Firenze Peretola (86km; 1h 30’), Perugia Sant’Egidio (121km; 1h 45’), Pisa Galilei (147km; 2h 15’), Bologna Marconi (176km; 2h 20’), Roma Ciampino (263km; 2h 50’) and Roma Fiumicino (278km; 3h).

 

 

DESCRIPTION OF THE BUILDING

The watch tower (180 sqm – 1,937 sqft) is split into two floors. The ground floor is accessed through a metal bridge on the outside. Here we find a dining room with a modern kitchen, a living room with two single beds and an en-suite bathroom and finally a second detached room.

Via a metal staircase we get access to the first floor. Here we can find another living area with beds and fireplace, a detached kitchen, a bathroom and the access to the rooftop terrace.

 

 

STATE AND FINISHES

The tower dates back to the 10th century (first record of it is 1124 AD but the tower is surely older) but it was recently restored giving it an ultra-modern look on the inside.

On the outside, the structure of the tower has not been altered, however on the front a huge glass window has been added to the façade, granting a wonderful view from the inside of the tower and compensating the small original windows having just a defensive purpose.

On the inside, the restoration preserved the original stone walls of the building, mixing them with plastered walls. The floors are covered in high quality parquet on both floors, with wooden beam sustaining the second floor. The roof, housing the panoramic terrace, is held by a beautiful wooden truss.

The entrance to the building is granted by a peculiar metal bridge, and even inside the passage between ground floor, first floor and roof is allowed by a modern metal staircase.

 

 

EXTERNAL AREA

The tower is surrounded by 7.5 hectares of land, partially covered in woodland. The property has a nice garden, obtained by terracing the otherwise too steep land. The tower is fitted with a peculiar pool, filled by the water emerging from the underneath natural spring.

The outside area just next to the tower has a BBQ area and wood oven with a covered pergola particularly suitable for al fresco dining with friends.

Next to the tower we can find three small wooden sheds, a covered shelter for firewood and a small wooden storage house.

The rooftop of the tower is a wonderful panoramic terrace accessed from the inside and allowing a 360° view over the surrounding countryside.

The private road leading to the tower is a dead end, thus traffic-free and granting a high degree of security.

 

 

USE AND POTENTIAL USES

The tower is perfect as a private luxury residence, deep in the Tuscan countryside and with a unique view over the surrounding hills. The surrounding land is partially covered in woodland, the rest is a garden.

RECENTLY ADDED

The term Castle derives from castellum which, in turn, derives from Castrum, a Latin term that refers to a military settlement. It is, in fact, in Roman times that we find the first elements of castles, architectural structures that become even more important with the advent of the barbarians. These peoples, nomads and mostly devoted to hunting and war, were also particularly ferocious and it was therefore required to fortify the already existing military facilities.

 
With the fall of the Roman Empire and the advent of the Middle Ages the decentralization of power required the creation of different types of fortification. At the beginning the scene was dominated by the watch towers whose purpose was primarily military.
 
The different economic and social structure, typical of the Middle Ages, then, required the creation of fortified towns. The castle became, therefore, the nucleus of a decentralized economy that, from the city, now moved to the countryside. That’s why the castle appeared as real fortified village.

In modern times, with the advent of various forms of fortification, the castle lost its defensive role. The various castles began, therefore, to be converted into residences for noble families.
Currently many of the castles in Italy and Europe are in need of renovation and therefore represent an unique opportunity to give a new life to a piece of history.
 
Owning a castle, live in a castle and, even more, to revive a castle is surely one of the most exciting experiences of life.
