Object Description

The location with its “feet in the water” distinguishes the uniqueness of this property that is also surrounded by a magnificent park measuring 5000 m² and actually touches the water of Lake Ceresio.

The park incorporates three palaces, an attractive swimming pool with relaxation zone, and a car parking area.  

One of the three palaces is a “Palazzo d’Epoca” (period palace) dating from 1899 that has been restored with a view to preserving it and has retained the style and charm of the “Belle Epoque”.

The area of the period palace totals approx. 384 m² and is spread over three levels each with romantic panoramic terraces.

The fit-out has been carried out with great care and using valuable materials. The state of maintenance is very good.

The other two palaces were built in 1994, and both have a typical classical architecture, with details similar to those of the period villa.

Each palace has an area of approx. 394 m² spread over two levels, and is sub-divided into 8 apartments. 

The work has been carried out with particular attention to details and to the choice of materials.

The splendid park measuring 5,000 m² immediately by the lakeside has vegetation that is typically Mediterranean with roses, palm trees, oleanders, magnolias, cypresses, hydrangeas, azaleas, etc. and includes a superb swimming pool by the lakeside with relaxation zone and solarium as well as graceful sculptures and garden furnishings.

The park embraces the three palaces in a harmonious and natural manner, and small paved paths indicate the way to the banks of the lake where the view is spectacular, reminiscent of a postcard.

The park has an important lakeside frontage and a beautiful private marina with berths for 6 / 8 motorboats.

The property is completely enclosed by walls, railings in wrought iron, barriers, and on the inside there are parking zones with spaces for 13 cars.

This is a unique and special property.
