Description

Spectacular luxury at the lake

The template of high luxury is right here at one of the most desirable private properties in and around Lake Como and is set within sloping grounds on the western banks of the lake directly across from Bellagio.  It is a luxurious family residence transformed by a leading Milanese design team and with numerous accolades from luxury-brand magazines.  This privately owned villa is now available for the enjoyment of others, which will start immediately on the ascent of the paved, meandering driveway that curves through a botanical front garden lined with palm trees before arriving at a circular courtyard pacified by the soothing sound of water: sprouting in the central fountain and cascading from the infinity swimming pool.  From the portico-veranda entrance you will step into inspiring elegance defined with marble seminato and parquet floors, antique furniture and magnificent chandeliers.  Continuous flow of space to the open plan living arrangement is effortlessly connected, yet also can easily be separated by enormous sliding doors.  The near side family lounge has agreeable warmth with its fine arrangement of bookshelves dressed with family knick-knacks, leather sofas, floor lamps and a fireplace.  A portion of the original side facade of the building is now remodeled into a fully glazed, polygonal-bow sitting room and open veranda extension to the main lounge that overlooks the lake and which makes a delightful setting for the most stylish soirees accompanied by the tinkling ivories from a gleaming baby grand piano.  The far side has an appropriately grand dining room (seats 12 comfortably), with a service area leading to admirable professional kitchen and an adjoining breakfast room opening on all sides to the main terrace and panoramic lake vista.  It is a space suitably adept for toddlers’ play and meals so that the family can always be together, whether inside or out.  Major style points also go to the copious modern bedroom suites provided with humongous stone bathtubs walk-in showers, which are arranged with giant showerheads.

The luxurious villa is a family mansion that will accommodate up to a maximum of 14 people in a total of 7 beautifully styled and elegant bedrooms, 4 of which are en suite and 3 in a beautifully arranged independent guest apartment (with kitchenette and lounge) under the eaves.  The spacious interiors have the very latest home technology and audio-visual systems and the far-reaching grounds have gently rolling carpet-lawns scattered with tall trees and secluded garden paths, which will be a much loved playground for the children.  A more grown-up and private space is the artfully glazed wine cellar, which is discretely arranged in the basement with a stock of fine wines from around the world.  On the wide-arc main terrace there is a romantic foliage-covered gazebo and on the opposing sides of the property are separate annexes: respectively a glazed and climate- controlled techno-gym and a therapeutic spa (above garage) with steam room and commodious Jacuzzi-jet bath that will easily accommodate 10 persons or more!

Photos do not fully convey the delightful character of this premium luxury villa, which provides a remarkable living experience for a large family with guests.  Here you can indulge in optimum luxury and privacy.  Pets are not allowed but one fundamental bonus for an optimal experience is the lovely Simona, the villa’s dedicated on-site manager who is ever-ready to ensure that your every request and comfort is fulfilled.
