About the property

Villa in Monterchi, Tuscany, Italy

Torre del Cielo is a superb villa with 5 bedrooms each with bathroom ensuite, large garden, a 12 x 6 swimming pool that is warmed by all day sun exposure with fantastic panoramic views.

AIR CONDITIONING in each bedroom and a new play ground area of 1000sqm.

Torre del Cielo - Tower of the Sky - takes its name from its outstanding position over the valley from which you can enjoy superb panoramic views.

The tower was built in middle of 1600 when it was used as a lookout for approaching enemies. In 1894 the building was expanded to include a stone farmhouse. This work was done by the great-grandfather of the current owner.

Traditional Tuscan style was maintained in the recent restoration of this property. The ceiling and floors are beautifully finished with terracotta tiles, and the ceilings have exposed wooden beams. The original wooden doors have all been refinished with antique hardware.

There is a new pool (12 x 6 m depth 1.5 mt; open from 1st May to1st October) in a beautiful garden with roses , lavender, jasmine, with cypresses and olive trees, offering stunning views over the valley towards the lush green tuscan hills. Next to the pool there is a heated Jacuzzi open from April to October). The pool area has a big gazebo, table, chairs and barbeques, from which to enjoy your al-fresco meal, the mediaeval town of Monterchi and the lush green Tuscan Hills are a backdrop.
