Property DescriptionVilla Leila is a country house near the historic centre of Perugia, this stunning home is reached by a paved local road and conveniently equipped with an electric gate. A restoration was done to perfection in the early 80s, also interventions and improvements have been made on an annual basis and therefore this property does not require major investments or interventions, possibly apart from paving the outside terrace. This property has definitely been made from a tower or ancient outcrop, as evidenced by the larger walls of the central body of the home. However there are no constraints on the home as the house is considered rural house. Villa Leila has extensive lands, given it’s positioning, boasting an area of approximately 1,5 ha, well terraced and used largely as lawns and olive groves; fruit trees are located all around the house, the garden is well integrated into the surrounding environment and it seems to flow naturally with the surrounding environment. This plastered house stands on two floors, with an additional attic room with terrace in the turret. The restoration was carried out using recovered materials, preserving the original feel and style. The flooring is handmade terracotta, the windows have been renovated over the years, adding security bars and armoured shutters to improve safety. Entering the house, you are greeted by large environments, bright and very airy, which is rather unusual in buildings of such history and rural type. The entrance opens onto a long corridor that leads from one side to the kitchen, bespoke-made, to a bathroom, a wide cupboard with attached laundry room until you reach the first living room, on two levels, and dining room. Continuing we reach a study to then come upon summer living room which has a stunning view of the whole scene in front of the property, featuring a cobblestone floor, large windows and a small wood stove that makes the area cosy in the winter months.
