There are various possibilities to transform this dwelling into a superb home.

The first floor again has tree spaces, one with outside access as well as a fireplace. The second space, in the tower, where the winding staircase would connect to the ground floor also features a loft. The third space features and en-suite bathroom as well as a staircase to a second floor room.
The roof has been redone as well as the floors, doors and windows. Structurally the house is in sound condition, it is however in need of some TLC and needs t be finished, there currently is no kitchen.

The photo showing an addition to the house is only a rendering of what might be possible.
As to be expected of a watch tower the house stands at the higher end of a main plot of about 1ha. There is a small olive grove, some fruit trees and a shed. The sloping part is a perfect place to add a pool to the property which will enjoy both the view and sun from dusk till dawn. The land borders on three side on agricultural land and on one side on the very quiet road.
On the other side of the road the property continues with approximately 3000 sq m with another olive trees and an outbuilding which can be renovated and converted.
The views are open and included the surrounding countryside as well as some nearby hamlets and even the Etrusken hill top town of Todi.
