Live Like Italian Royalty in This Preserved 17th-Century Villa

New, 2 comments


Sure, Italy might be positively lousy with romantic villas, but there's something about this massive, remarkably well-preserved estate in Perugia, Italy that stands out from the (very lovely) crowd. Currently on the market for €2,700,000 (or $3,752,606), the sprawling property sits on about 22 acres of forests and lemon groves, with a two guest buildings, a private chapel, a pool, and a stable and barn surrounding the (yep) lemon-colored, 11463-square-foot main house. Inside, the four-story home opens up to a "majestic wooden flight of stairs" in the entry way, with grand, surrounding sitting rooms, as well as a billiard hall and dining room with arch-doors and exposed-beam ceilings. The second floor is dedicated exclusively to the eight bedrooms, while the attic houses what was once used as the servants' quarters. The place sells itself, so have a look:
