62. Spacious attic apartment in Vico Morcote Lago with fantastic lake view

We are selling a spacious attic apartment in an architecturally modern and sophisticated residence in the immediate vicinity of the lake. The apartment covers three levels, terraced gardens facing Lake Lugano, open-air swimming pool, extensive portico, wine cellar, three garage parking spaces and an outdoor parking space for guests.

The hill, on the highest part of which lies the small village of Vico Morcote, faces the south in the direction of the banks of Lake Lugano. The part of Vico Morcote that borders on the lake is known as Vico Morcote Lago and is the location of some beautiful properties.

About 150 m above Lake Lugano and above the historic fishing village of Morcote, the small community Vico Morcote lies in a sunny hillside position with an unobstructed, distant panoramic view of the lake and the mountains. The old church, typical Ticino stone houses, small Ticino grotto and former bourgeois houses as well as the former village inn and today’s luxury hotel and gourmet restaurant ’Bellavista’ form the historic, picturesque centre of the village. With time the tranquillity and the idyllic location attracted further families so that in particular on the terraced slopes below the village exclusive villas and apartments were built and beautiful gardens with lush vegetation such as palms, magnolias, jasmines, Alpine roses, azaleas, wisteria, mimosa etc. were created. Vines grow well on the slopes and numerous hiking paths interlace the chestnut forests. The view from up here reaches far across the lake, to the Monte Generoso and Porto Ceresio on the Italian side of Lake Lugano. Lugano itself lies 12 km away.
