Description
RECENTLY REDUCED FROM €690,000
Located on the Umbrian/Marche border and poised above a small hamlet this property offers a unique opportunity to acquire one of the only remaining habitable observation towers in the Marche. Of the 600 that dotted the Marche many lay in ruins and others have been restored only to be stripped of their original features and characteristics.

Torre di Palentuccio contains a mine of features including frescoes, original flooring, wine vats, cauldrons and original high timbered ceilings. The untouched Cantina rooms really take you back to the days of horse power and sandal leather.

The accommodation is honest and spacious, high ceilings offer airy rooms and give a real sense of space and no original feature has been removed or destroyed but incorporated into the living space giving architectural eye candy from all directions. Six existing bedrooms with the possibility of creating more bearing in mind that the lower floor is unused and could be converted into further accommodation. The tower section is a self contained two bedroom apartment suitable for immediate rental income.

The exterior boasts excellent stone work and exciting roof lines giving the property presence.

The 1.3 hectares of land offers plenty of space for a pool and is currently a natural garden of seasonal wild flowers including a varied selection of wild orchids. Access is via a short stretch of white road.

The medieval University town of Camerino is just a short drive and offers all amenities including restaurants, bars, shops, banks etc. The coastal town of Ancona is only a 50 minute drive away and there is an airport at Falconara with daily Ryan Air flights.

There is room for some improvements and the external areas could be easily landscaped to create a more personalized garden and recreational area but overall this property offers real down to earth Italian un spoilt splendour.
