46. Exclusive villa with view of lake and mountains in Lugano

A villa is for sale above Lugano in a hillside location, nestling in a beautiful green area with a splendid view of the lake. It was designed by a reputable Ticino architect. The building has a living area of approx. 300 sqm. This includes: a garden of approx. 320 sqm as well as a garage with 3 parking spaces. 

Already mentioned in the 6th century as a market town, Lugano is today the cultural and economic capital of the Tessin, thanks to its favourable climate and attractive countryside, thanks to its function as a cultural bridge to Italy and the Middle East and thanks to its high concentration of banks and trading companies. Lugano is a wealthy, young city with a comprehensive, modern infrastructure and a diversity of cultural amenities the whole year round. However, Lugano tends to be rather a (very upmarket) residential location and the economy plays a more important role than tourism; today Lugano is the third-largest banking and trading centre of Switzerland and a few years ago also became a modern and proud university city.

Lugano is easily reached by Intercity, motorway and by plane. Agno airport is 4 km, Milan-Malpensa airport 45 km and the golf course in Magliaso 6 km away.

The architectural style and the attractive design of the details in the interior and exterior are characteristic for this villa. The combination of natural materials such as timber and natural stone with the daylight points creates a special and charming atmosphere.

Despite the mainly terraced plot, the villa has a level garden area that guarantees pleasant use outdoors and from which one can enjoy breathtaking views of the lake and the surrounding mountains.

The villa is a property for people who like to live in close proximity to nature. The many modern amenities of the nearby infrastructure and the accessibility of the city centre of Lugano within only a few minutes make the villa an ideal residential solution.
