Restored Italian watchtower in Umbria for sale

Torre la Palmobara is a perfectly restored 15th century watchtower in Umbria. Accommodation is spread over three floors, and consists of a well-equipped kitchen with seating for four to six people; basement with billiards room and storage; master bedroom suite and three further bedrooms; dining room with vaulted ceiling; sitting room with a large antique Peperino stone fireplace with cross vaulted ceilings and an enchanting reading room at the top of the tower with windows on both sides offering views over the fields from every angle.

The property comes with three hectares (and the option to buy a further 6/7), and the land is edged by streams and has a small area of woodland and an outdoor swimming pool. Next to the pool is an orchard with some 40 fruit trees including plums, apples, pears, peaches, quinces, figs and persimmons as well as, apparently, the tallest pear trees in Italy. There are also around 30 olive trees scattered across the land.
