56. Modern villa with breathtaking view over the lake at Vico Morcote

On the Vico Morcote hill, overlooking the magnificent views, next to the characteristic historical centre, there is a modern special villa on sale with 285 m² of living space, 120 m² of terraces, 773 m² of land, swimming pool and big garage for three cars, motorcycle and bicycles and two outdoor car parks.

The small town of Vico Morcote rises 150 m above the Lugano Lake in the historical fishermen's village of Morcote, in a sunny location along a slope with a scenic view over the lake and the mountains. The ancient stone church built in the typical Ticino style, the small Ticino cave and the ancient noble homes, the ancient inn currently transformed into a luxury hotel and the gourmet restaurant ’Bellavista’ make up the charming city centre. Different families have learned to appreciate the tranquillity and location of these areas over time, setting up their homes here: impressive villas and apartments with beautiful gardens and luxuriant vegetation like palms, magnolia, jasmine, alpine roses, azalea, wisteria and mimosa, were built over the terraced slopes surrounding the area. The slopes are dotted with vineyards and many paths which are ideal for walks and these unwind between woods and chestnut groves. The view unfolds beyond the lake up to Monte Generoso and Porto Ceresio on the Italian slope of the Lugano Lake. The city of Lugano is 12 km away. 





The villa was recently built,  surrounded by vineyards, half way between the mountains and the lake.

The modern and elegant lineal structure of the design transpires from the material, the light, stone and wood. The effect yields a building which conciliates design and landscape, natural material and technology, comfort and beauty.

The villa was built over a terraced land of 773 m² and the floor area is arranged over two stories in addition to a basement floor used as a garage. All stories are served by a lift and staircases.

The living-top floor area is arranged as follows: foyer, living room-dining room area with fireplace offering a double opening and study corner, fully-equipped big kitchen opening up to the dining room area and view of the fireplace, staircase and lift.

In the living area there's a big rectangle with the shorter sides in masonry and the longer sides entirely glassed and facing a big terrace below measuring approx.  60 m²  towards the lake and above overlooking the patio and heated pool. 

The patio above the villa can be enjoyed from the living-room and becomes one sole area together with the terrace when the doors and windows are completely opened. 

The lower floor (bedroom floor) is arranged as follows: boxroom, lift, staircases, guest bathroom, master bedroom with bathroom and wardrobe room, bedroom with bathroom, bedroom-study with bathroom, big laundry room, technical room and garden.

All bedrooms face a beautiful garden with a gorgeous view.

At the garage floor there are three comfortable car parks, several places for motorcycles and bicycles, pedestrian access, lobby, lift, staircase and two outdoor car parks.

The finishes have been carefully chosen and feature fine quality materials like ebony, marble, natural stones, large through-windows, glass rails, outdoor flooring for teak terraces, parquet floors, reinforced concrete exposed facades, panelling in weathering steel, panelling in cedar, domotics, sound system, air conditioning, home theatre, video surveillance system, geothermal heat pump, etc. 

The villa is just perfect as a main residence and at the same time excellent as a holiday home.
