Unique Tuscan watch tower for sale with roof-deck and swimming pool
Unique former watch tower for sale in the Casentino valley close to the city Arezzo in Tuscany. The ancient tower dates back to the 10th century, was built on solid rock and recently turned into an impressive residence. Skillful landscaping provides a natural garden with cypress trees on several terraces, sitting areas and a beautiful swimming pool below the tower. The pool is fed by the property's own spring water, which runs in a cascade out of the rock throughout the year. The surrounding meadows and woodland offer privacy and a short white road leads to a nearby hamlet. The lower floor is accessible via a small iron bridge and offers a cosy eat-in kitchen, a sleeping- and sitting area with en-suite bathroom and a second detached bedroom on south. The floors are combined by a metal staircase, which adds a clean and elegant flair to the tower's interior. A wooden mezzanine floor, which divides the tower's interior space horizontally, turns the upper floor into a spacious living/sleeping area with imposing ceiling structure and open fireplace, detached kitchenette, bathroom and access to the roof-deck. The roof-deck faces south and offers beautiful views across the hills. An outdoor barbecue, wood-fired oven and a pergola are located in the garden next to the tower on south. All shopping facilities are only about 5 km away. The city Arezzo is about 32 km away and the A1 motorway can be reached in 45 minutes by car.
