Luxury villa on Lake Maggiore in sale
This splendid villa, built in the late 1800’s on Lake Maggiore, is now on sale. Originally the property belonged to a wealthy Swiss family, and was subsequently sold to an American ambassador in 1925 who turned it into a summer residence, employing the famous architect Luigi Vietti to renovate it in the rationalist style which was fashionable at that time.
This beautiful luxury residence was then enlarged and turned into a modern abode, totally new, with large glass walls looking out and large outdoor terraced spaces that offer a wonderful view overlooking the lake right up to the Swiss Alps.
The villa covers a total floor surface of 1440 m2 with an original layout: on the ground floor a stream of water runs across the dining room, creating a spectacular waterfall in the centre of the house; the central open staircase is made of white marble and clear crystal; the opening which accommodates the staircase looks over the back garden through a 9 metre glass wall. The first floor is divided in two separate areas of the same dimension, one of which is reserved for guests. The latest renovation dates back to 2004 and has taken 5 years for the a total restoration of the building and finishes, and also adding an independent apartment and a terrace.
The property is surrounded by a 15000 m2 park with beautiful ancient plants, magnolias, rhododendrons, palm trees, camellias and azaleas.
This villa on lake Maggiore is a true private paradise perfect for relaxing in one of the most exclusive areas of Italy.

Piedmont LAKE MAGGIOREPiedmont – Lake Maggiore. In recent years we have witnessed an increasing demand for villas on the lakes: they are the destination for Italian personalities and members of the international jet set and are ever more sought after.
Lake Maggiore, thanks to its mild climate and ideal geographical location, among the soft hills of Novara, is surely one of the most appreciated and requested areas.
With mild winters and cool summer days, the vegetation is traditionally Italian, with lemon and olive trees and laurel oaks. Also, we find flourishing camellias, rhododendrons and azaleas. However, on Lake Maggiore there are also typical sub-tropical flowers and plants.
A location with such perfect climatic conditions and with a colourful and scented landscape is surely immediately enchanting; in fact the villas on the lakes are ever more on demand and yearned for.
