94. Villa with swimming pool and splendid view of the lake in Montagnola Lago

In Montagnola we are offering a villa with open-air swimming pool, sauna, garden, garage and external parking spaces for sale in a privileged panoramic location and in the immediate vicinity of Lake Lugano. 

Montagnola, well-known through Hermann Hesse, who lived there, is located on the southern border Lugano, located slightly higher on the sunny slopes of the Collina d’Oro.  Originally the western slope was known as the Collina d’Oro  - the golden hill – which stretches from this higher-lying, historic centre of Montagnola to Lake Lugano with the district of Montagnola Lago. Today the community of Montagnola is combined with Montagnola Lago, Carabietta, Gentilino and Agra to form a district under the name of Collina d’Oro.

Montagnola Lago is an elongated village by Lake Lugano, located on the lakeside road between Morcote and Agno. The former fishing and winegrowing village has changed today into a residential area since Lugano is not far away. Here one can live peacefully in the sun thanks to the southwest-facing position; the slopes that at first only rise gently above the Lake afford a romantic and distant view of Lake Lugano.

Montagnola Lago lies only a small distance from the main roads but one can still reach Lugano (6 km) quickly, also the motorway (6 km) or the large shopping centre near Noranco (5 km). The lakeside is virtually on the doorstep and numerous hiking paths lead to the Collina d’Oro or to Figino and Morcote, always along the gentle slopes, passing through chestnut forests and past vineyards.


Object Description

With a living area of approx. 213 m² + 60 m² for the utility rooms the building is arranged over two levels that are embedded in the hillside. The upper floor – the entrance level – is divided into: spacious entrance area, a gallery open to the basement, study, anteroom, guest room with bathroom, attic room which can be converted into a nursery or hobby room, staircase leading the lower floor. 

The lower floor – the ground floor – is divided into: spacious living/dining room with fireplace, portico, diner-kitchen, portico with barbecue facility, anteroom, laundry/boiler room, tank room, storage room, through-room, master bedroom with bathroom, two other rooms, bathroom with shower.

The villa can be reached via a private forecourt paved with porphyry slabs, with a drive to the garage, where 2-3 vehicles can be parked.

The garden is set out on two levels. It is very well tended, planted with azaleas, camellias, Japanese maple etc. and offers inviting relaxation areas. In the garden, immediately in front of the living area, there is a cosy patio with a table and benches made of natural stone. This area is accessible both from the portico of the living/dining room and from the portico of the kitchen.

In the higher-lying part of the garden there is a magnificent swimming pool with sun terrace and a brick-built structure with sauna, bathtub, shower, dressing room and filter room for the swimming pool.
