The Main Villa
The villa for sale on Lake Como, which requires restoration, is accessed via a pretty lane through the wrought iron entrance gate leading into the grounds.
The ground floor, slightly raised to provide the best light to the basement floor, comprises the living area: an attractive entrance, with solid wood staircase which leads to the other floors, leads to a large living/dining room with fireplace and French window with access to the outside. Next, there is a small sitting room with wood burning stove, the kitchen and a guest bathroom. .
Upstairs from the entrance, the first floor houses the sleeping area, with three large bedrooms with balcony overlooking the lake and the Alps, and a fourth double bedroom with view of the private grounds and two bathrooms.
From this level, there is access to the loft, where there are two pretty bedrooms for guests, and a bathroom, plus other spaces used as an attic. From the ground floor, there is access to the lower ground floor, where there is the basement room, the cellar, the technical area with the boiler and another guest bathroom.
Every floor of the property has a beautiful view of the lake.
Near the entrance gate and a little lower than the main villa, there is the annex, which has three floors, comprising an underground parking garage, a studio with bathroom and a loft space.
State and finishing
The property requires restoration and modernisation in order to be livable, which would enhance its features.
The fixtures and fittings in the main villa are original, from the time of construction and could be salvaged during the restoration.
The annex, however, was restored in the early 90’s.
The grounds slope, with a pleasant flat area around the main villa, used as a garden. Within the grounds there are ancient trees, a lawn, hedges bordering the garden and paths where you can walk and enjoy the breeze from the hills on hot summer afternoons.
Use and potential uses
The property is ideal as a holiday home for a family or for more than one family, due to the large spaces and the annex.
