Pattern Syntax for Alternate Heads with Default Value

I'm trying to build a unary function which accepts only arguments with
two possible heads and has a default value.  That is, something like
the following, except that this doesn't work.  Anyone know how to do
this correctly?

f[(x_Real | x_Integer) : 2.5] := x^2;
where f[3] = 9
and f[1.5] = 2.25
and f[] = 6.25
