Authentically restored tower for sale with panoramic views onto Spoleto
This authentic and tastefully restored tower for sale is situated vis-à-vis from the medieval castle of Spoleto and the old aqueduct, Ponte delle Torri, in Umbria. The property for sale offers stunning views of the old-town of Spoleto and the surrounding countryside. The terraced garden and the house face south with sunshine throughout the day. The historic tower dates back to 1577 and is built on three levels. The lower entrance leads to a spacious dining room with open fireplace and, through a beautiful stone arch, to a kitchen with spectacular views towards the medieval castle. On the same level there is a bedroom and a bathroom with shower. The lower terrace can also be accessed from here. An elegant and modern spiral staircase leads from the dining room to the middle- and upper floors. The middle floor features a comfortable lounge with open fireplace, living room/study, bedroom and a large bathroom with shower. The tower can also be accessed from the outside on this level, which allows easy access to the surrounding garden from every part of the tower. The spiral staircase continues to the upper floor, containing a loft with a very high ceiling, which can also be used as a third bedroom with en-suite bathroom. From the loft there is access to a panoramic roof terrace, which also connects to the impressive terraced garden. The garden is dotted with many cypress-, pine- and olive trees. There is ample space to build a swimming pool on the terrace above the tower. The property for sale is privately situated without immediate neighbours, tranquil, surrounded by nature, and yet only a short distance from the town centre of Spoleto, which can be reached in about 10 minutes by car or on foot along a scenic footpath (about 30 minutes). Spoleto has a train station with easy access by train to the centre of Rome as well as to the Marche beaches. Also many important Umbrian towns are within easy reach: Trevi (about 25 km), Montefalco (about 30 km), Bevagna (about 45 km), Assisi (about 50 km), Todi (about 50 km) and Perugia (about 70 km).
