EXCLUSIVE VILLA ON LAKE COMO
This villa seems to have come directly from a story book, built at the end of the XIX century in a wonderful quaint hilly location dominating Como.
Characterised by an artistic theme inspired from Nordic architecture, the main villa presents a unique architectonic profile using points, and is distributed over four levels. The interior finishing used during restoration and for the composition of the structure are extremely high quality thanks to the first choice materials including the parquet, terracotta tiles lovingly restored to their original beauty, as well as various marbles. Some internal walls are frescoed and in many rooms suggestive period fireplaces are found, of great visible impact.
The separate entrance to the villa includes a large living room with various offices in the underlying floor which could easily be transformed into three apartments. The custodians lodgings are also present here for a total of 400m2.
The buildings are immersed into ten hectares of park, in which some external structures dating to the original construction of the villa are located. From the large windows of the villa you can enjoy a wonderful view over the surrounding hills, dominated by maple leaf, ash, pines, chestnuts and oak trees. The area is entirely surrounded by woodland, which blends seamlessly with the particular style of construction of the villa.

The town in which this exclusive residence is located is known above all for the cable car which connects it to the nearby town of Como, reachable in only seven minutes even if it is snowing. Amazing views here give it the name of the “Balcony on the Alps”. The area, located in the Lombard Foothills, is characterised by numerous historic villas in the liberty style and are very eclectic.
The territory is mainly covered with forests. Despite the large number of springs the area is largely without waterways which are absent or in the form of streams which do not swell even following lots of rain. The semi mountain climate is fresh and ventilated in the summer, enticing many tourists in search of comfort from the busiest cities.
Historically the archaeological findings document a presence by Celtic tribes from the VI century BC. After a long period governed by Rome the small town managed to gain a certain freedom with the construction of the monastery halfway through the XIV century, allowing it to become a place for religious isolation exploiting the difficulty in accessing the town. In the first half of the XIX century the realisation of the mule track allowed easy connection between the site and the town. Between the XIX and XX centuries the municipality transformed itself from a small rural village to the high class retreat for wealthy Milanese, and in so doing reached the pinnacle of its fame through it’s splendid tourism industry.
