Wonderful Historical Property Near Lecco
Majestic 19th-century estate surrounded by a haven of peace between Milan and Lecco
Charming period property with a centuries-old park for sale in Brianza
This wonderful historical property surrounded by an 8-hectare centuries-old leafy park is for sale in one of the most exclusive areas of Brianza, close to major cities such as Milan and Bergamo and convenient to reach the renowned towns of Como and Lecco.
Its context is extraordinarily private and peaceful, a true oasis of peace in which to appreciate breathtaking views that sweep across the Po Valley, up to the city of Milan on clear days.
Built on the ruins of the ancient castle of the feudal lords of Sirtori, whose origins date back to the 16th century, this prestigious complex welcomes in its 3,500 square meters of internal surface the main building and two annexed farmhouses, as well as a private church just outside of the fenced property.
The main villa, of impressive size, underwent some radical changes between the 19th and 20th centuries, which gave it its current structure, including the addition of the third floor and the extension of the courtyard at the entrance. These first changes were followed by others in the 1980s, relating to the distribution of the rooms.
The structure of the park has remained substantially unchanged, conceived in the 1830s with great probability by Gaspare Sirtori, who in 1845 also created the lake inside the property: the only important changes concern the design of the flower beds, the decorative elements, and some ornamental plantings in the garden parts around the house.
Its 8 hectares of grounds are crossed by a driveway that connects the villa, located in an elevated position, to the lowest part of the park, where we find the lake. The estate is equipped with a double entrance: the main one at the top, flanked by a row of cypress trees, and one at the bottom, beyond the lake, which allows you to walk through the property in the opposite direction; the park is features labyrinths bordered by tall box hedges, in paths that cross a grove of lime trees with monumental specimens of Tilia Vulgaris and hornbeam tunnels.
Dominating this landscape of rare beauty, this house for sale stands in all its splendor. Divided into five apartments, three of which on the ground floor and the other two on the first floor, this estate can fit up to 17 apartments, according to a project already approved which would provide for the total renovation and redistribution of spaces.
A private church, located beyond the fence that delimits the property, completes the complex for sale, together with two independent units, one of which is currently dedicated to the caretaker's house.
