The property was drastically altered and extended by Robert Gunther, a scientist, zoologist and founder of the Museum of the History of Science in Oxford.
The turret can only accessed by a ladder from the garage and not through the main house.
Ben Marchbank, from Bedfords, said: 'It's so rare for such a quirky and distinctive property to come up for sale.'
The house also includes marble gargoyles, mullioned windows and dressed stonework. Inside it offers a hall, sitting room, garden room, dining room, a kitchen and three bedrooms. Outside, is a good sized walled garden and a garage.
