Lake Como
1125 sq. m

Timeless elegance by the Lake

This wonderful, historic and luxurious property is located in one of the best spots of the Lake.

While only 10 minutes from the centre of Como, and a few hundred metres from the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, the Villa feels intensely private and personal as it overlooks the lake and hillside with no other homes around it. The Property is south-facing and blessed with sunlight throughout the day, unique views of the lake and surrounding landscape from all corners of the estate, and spectacular sunsets. It is the perfect place to feel and enjoy the true atmosphere of the most famous Italian lake, in all seasons. The property is developed over several levels, to be explored and discovered. Upon arrival a gate house welcomes you at the top of the property. A short drive down takes you to a large belvedere terrace overlooking the entire estate. From here, the main Villa emerges from the rock cliff below and overlooks a large south-facing garden with a pool which is connected both to a winter garden gym and art area up above, and a solarium with a Jacuzzi, down below, with lovely views of the local marina and the village of Torno. A path then leads down through the garden to the boathouse: the top floor includes a private presidential suite composed of 1 double bedroom en suite, a twin bedroom reachable through a spiral staircase and that opens on the living area, a dedicated kitchen and a living/cinema room. The lower floor of the boathouse is dedicated to a games room and Spa area to relax and unwind.

The main villa was built in the 1830’s by a famous local artist and boasts 4 double bedrooms, 1 twin bedroom and a two-bedroom family suite (2+2), each with en suite bathrooms, along with a large dining and entertaining area leading to the garden, with spectacular views of the lake. There is a staff area comprised of 2 bedrooms and one bathroom. The total capacity, excluding staff, is 18 persons (14 adults and 4 kids, ideally). The current indoor design is classic and coherent with the iconic lake heritage. The garden is majestic, spanning the 40m elevation from the local road to the lake itself and enriched by statues from the local artist Giuseppe Croff. The garden develops over several levels providing sensational views of Lake Como from a variety of altitudes, and ending in dramatic rock-cliffs with a private waterfall that reminds you that we are in a pre-alpine area. There is plenty of space for lounging, partying or finding privacy for a romantic stroll or to enjoy a good book by the lake. Should you feel like exploring further, a private, gated path will easily lead you to the centre of Torno, where you can enjoy the atmosphere and one of the high quality restaurants in the village.

This stunning villa has almost anything you can wish for and is unique in its versatility: a heated pool with great views, a gym (Technogym), a games room, sauna, steam room, not to mention your own docking facilities, to reach your restaurant with absolute ease and comfort. Perfect either for a large family gathering or for a group of good friends, but also ideal for a corporate retreat or summit, this property will allow discerning guests to enjoy privacy and sober, elegant luxury, and immerse in the history and fascinating lifestyle of the lake.
