Euganean Hills- ‘The tower’, a historic building in a stunning setting. - Ref.90
This beautiful 17th-century stone watchtower is an ancient monument set in a spectacular hilltop location surrounded by its own extensive land. The property has recently been completely renovated to provide high quality living accommodation.
The Tower is a unique property in the Euganean Hills and is listed in a number of guidebooks to the area. It may have been originally built as a ‘Roccolo’ (i.e. to catch birds) and was possibly associated with the Villa Contarini, a 17th century Doge’s summer retreat in nearby Valnogaredo. The Euganean Hills are famed for their natural beauty, local produce and restaurants.
The house is finished to a high standard throughout and offers flexible accommodation of lounge, study, reading rooms at the top and bottom of the Tower, and a fully equipped kitchen. Two double bedrooms and two bathrooms offer comfortable accommodation. The external and internal renovation has been carried out sensitively to maintain the historic references of the property.
There is plumbing for a washing machine, central heating and air conditioning to the main bedroom. The second bedroom is cool in the summer, situated at the bottom of property. This area could also be used as a self-contained small apartment if required.
Outside the property is a wonderful south-facing terrace with fabulous views across the vineyards of the hills. On a clear day you can see the snow cover Alps to the north and the hills of Tuscany to the south. The sunsets are stunning!
The extensive surrounding land is partly forested and partly an open meadow, which is full of wild flowers and asparagus. The Tower is extremely private but only eight hundred meters from the local villages of Fontanafredda and Valnogaredo, which have restaurants, bars and shops. The typical Italian market town of Este is a short drive away as are motorway and rail communications to Venice, Verona, Vicenza and Ferrara.
A rare opportunity to purchase a unique property!
