This property was originally a castle with a watchtower from which it was possible to see for miles, from the rolling hills all the way to the Sibillini Mountains. In this original tower you can experience the amazing feeling of living in a real castle.
The tower has been recently fully restored and transformed into modern accommodation where historic tradition, efficiency and comfort are well balanced. Whilst retaining all the original stones and external look, great attention has been given to energy saving and all modern comforts, which guarantees comfortable quality living.
The property is 360 square metres and is on 4 floors, divided as follows:
Ground Floor: an open plan area with designer kitchen and a large dining room, both with a French window leading to the courtyard overlooking the valley.
The dining room has a second French window, leading to the portico, where you can enjoy lovely al fresco dinners with family and friends. A few steps higher, you can find a lounge, also with a French window stepping out to the courtyard, a studio and a bathroom.
First Floor: an ensuite master bedroom, 2 large bedrooms, a bathroom and a living room. All rooms enjoy a unique view of the Marche countryside.
From the first floor, you have direct access out to the big terrace, to the rear of the property, where you could add some sofas and a gazebo and have a further relaxation area.
Just imagine stepping out in the morning, soon after waking up and spending a few minutes on the terrace, while gradually thinking about the day ahead. Even the hardest days, will seem easy!
Second Floor: a living room with bathroom, which could be also used as an ensuite bedroom.
Third Floor: a spacious master bedroom
In this environment, one element is constant: the tower, which spires all the way to the top.
Noticeable is the refurbishment of the house and the great attention to detail: all the elements are from designers and the way the architect has matched tradition with modernity is indisputable.
The tower sits on 9,000 square metres of land, surrounded by 50 olive trees and cypresses.
The property enjoys a landscaped swimming pool 4m x 10m with a shallow area (30cm deep) ideal for children. Beside the pool, a gazebo will give you some shade during your days spent out having fun in the water.
The view all around the property is simply breathtaking, stretching from the vineyards set on the surrounding rolling hills up to the snowy Sibillini Mountains.
The property also enjoys a 50 square metre annex, to be restored, which could be used as a house for guests or simply as a storage for gardening tools.
The tower, with its dominant position over the Tesino Valley is just 5 minutes drive from the medieval village of Montedinove and 25 km from Grottammare and its famous beaches, great shopping and restaurants.

About the Area:
Montedinove is a tiny village with an almost perfectly circular shape, surrounded by impressive high medieval walls. Many of the old brick buildings in the town centre date back to the 15th century and it was one of the strongholds of the Knights Templar.
In Montedinove there are only 2 bars and 1 restaurant, a small grocery shop and a pharmacy. Though the village is not very high (561 m above sea level) the view is amazing.
The nearby village of Montalto delle Marche can fulfil most daily needs. Around the square there are some good butchers, fruit and vegetable shops, a bakery and other basic shops, all offering good products of the area.
