Climb to the top of the tower and feel like medieval men, who controlled their territory from the watchtower!
This property was originally a castle with a watchtower from which it was possible to see over miles, from the rolling hills all the way to the Sibillini Mountains. In this original Tower you can experience the amaze of living in a real Castle!
The tower has been recently fully restored and transformed into a modern accommodation where historic tradition, efficiency and comfort are well balanced. As a matter of fact, while keeping all the original stones and external look, great attention was given to energy saving and all the modern comforts, that can guarantee a quality living.
The property is 360 square meters and develops on 4 floors, divided as follows:
Ground Floor: an open space with designer kitchen and a large dining room, both with a french window leading to the courtyard overlooking the valley. The dining room, enjoys also 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 en-suite master bedroom, 2 wide bedrooms, a bathroom and a lounge. All rooms enjoy a unique view towards the countryside of region Marche.
From the first floor, you have direct access out to the big terrace, placed at the back of the property, where you could add some sofas and a gazebo and have a further relaxing area. Just imagine stepping out in the morning, soon after waking up and spending a few minutes in the terrace, while gradually coming into contact with your daily life. Even the hardest days, will have a different taste!
Second Floor: a lounge with bathroom, which could be also used as an en-suite 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 care for details: all the elements are from designers and the way the architect matched tradition with modernity is undisputable.
The Tower sits on 9.000 square meters land, surrounded by 50 olive trees and cypresses. The property enjoys a landscaped swimming pool 4x10 mt with a shallow area (30cm deep) ideal for kids. 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 meters annex, to be restored, which could be used as a dependance for guests or simply as a storage for the gardening tools.

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 grocey shop and pharmacy. Though the village is not placed very high (561 m above sea level) the view is amazing.
The nearby village of Montalto delle Marche can fulfill most of daily need and care.
Around square there are some good butchers, fruit and vegetable shops, bakery and other basic shops, all offering good products of the area.
