Small, but perfectly formed, Il Torre del Fiume is a superbly converted tower house. Dating from C14th its original purpose was to guard a crossing over the River Carpina from malintents with their eyes on Montone. It has recently been imaginatively restored using the finest materials and with good taste to create a luxurious, low-maintenance home measuring some 140 square metres.

Constructed on four floors, the lower ground floor is accessed from the terrace immediately above the river. It houses the laundry and boiler for the gas central heating, but could just as well be a cool studio for the summer months or a snooker or games room. This room has a magnificent vaulted ceiling. On the ground floor one finds the light and airy kitchen/diner/sitting room with a fireplace. Off the sitting area is a beautifully appointed bathroom with a sunken stone tub. From the kitchen, one can walk out on to the upper-terrace where there is a pergola over the dining area and a heated plunge pool with hydro-massage jets. This terrace enjoys a good deal of privacy. A circular, hand-carved stone staircase leads up from the sitting room to the guest bedroom/sitting room. This room is light, airy and very spacious. On the top floor one finds the master bedroom in which there is a screened toilet and stone wash-hand basin.

The attention to detail in this property is clear from the use of designer radiators to ancient stone heraldic coats-of-arms and a gargoyle. The current owner has created a house with absolute ‘wow’ appeal.

The property has lovely views over the river up to Montone which is 5 minutes away by car. Umbertide, where all amenities can be found is less than 10 minutes away. The E45 motorway is about 4kms distant.

Mains gas, water, electricity and telephone are connected and the house includes the furnishings but not the artwork.

Price: Euro 600,000
