Object Description

The house was built in 1977 on a terraced plot with an area of approx. 2,921 sq. m. in an attractive, dominant location with views of the lake and the mountains. The house was completely refurbished in 1990 and the small property extended in 2002 in accordance with the owner’s wishes to include a lift, a garage and an open, heated swimming pool.

The living area of approx. 360 sq. m. is divided among the two storeys above ground that are connected by a lift and a staircase. The main entrance on the first floor of the villa can be reached via the lift or via an external staircase.
