1. Apartment gem immediately by Lake Lugano with boathouse

This 8-room apartment immediately by Lake Lugano with approx. 283 m² living space on several levels offer a fantastic view of the lake and the surrounding mountains from all of its rooms. All of its levels can be reached via a staircase and a lift. The apartment includes a beautiful, well-tended garden with barbecue area, pergola and terrace directly by the lake offering approx. 256 m² of space. The boathouse offers space for two boats and the garage includes three parking spaces for cars.

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.

One of the two local mountains of Lugano is the Monte Brè: the sunniest residential area in Switzerland, facing south, with a panoramic, postcard view of the city and the lake, as well as towards the mountains as far as the Monte Rosa in the High Alps. At the foot of the Monte Brè, immediately by Lake Lugano, the embankment footpath “Sentiero di Gandria”, leading from Castagnola to Gandra, lies within a superb frame of beautiful landscape.


Object Description

With only four other apartments, this 8-room apartment is located in an historic estate that was built in solid building style in approx. 1920. In 1994/1995 extensive refurbishing work was carried out on facade and roof and the building is now in a good condition. The house lies immediately by Lake Lugano in a peaceful, idyllic location by the embankment footpath Sentiero di Gandria.

On first floor is the spacious bedroom wing with two bedrooms and a separate bathroom and a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a small loggia. All the bedrooms have a view of Lake Lugano. Immediately beside the lift is a cellar that can be used as a wine cellar or storage room.
The bedroom and bathroom on the mezzanine floor as well as the attic room with its own bathroom in the rear part of the building that belongs to the apartment are excellent for guests. Both parts can be reached via the staircase and the lift.
