The rural refuge, called Towerhouse Farm, is a bastion of Southern romance, where the distinguished architect Keith Summerour found the freedom to build without code restrictions. The soaring structure—an extraordinary tower using stones culled from the land and inspired in part by Civil War shot towers and the architecture of San Gimignano, Italy—keeps watch over the surrounding farmland, a plot brimming with corn, millet, soybeans, seasonal produce and, most recently, a labyrinth of bobbing sunflowers.
