27. Villa with breathtaking lake view in Lugano

On the hill of the Monte Brè - Lugano there is a spacious villa with approx. 2'071 sqm of plot, in a superb panoramic location with unobstructable view of the city of Lugano and the surrounding mountains, including a swimming pool and garage for sale.

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 Lugano's two local mountains is the Monte Brè: The sunniest residential area in Switzerland, facing south, with a panoramic postcard view of the city and lake and into the mountains as far as the Monte Rosa in the High Alps. Today Monte Brè forms part of Lugano and is connected by public transport to the city centre.


Property Description

The villa was built in the seventies on a plot measuring approx. 2071 m². The superb location with the unique 180° panoramic views of Lake Lugano, the city of Lugano itself, and the surrounding mountains is without doubt one of the greatest assets of this property. The lakeside promenade and the centre of Lugano can be reached by car within approx. 5 minutes.

The architecture of the building is kept in a simple, linear style. The living area of approx. 730 m² covers two levels with elegant and spaciously laid out rooms as well as two basements.

On the first floor there is: entrance area, spaciously designed atrium, impressive staircase leading to the lower floors, large living room with antique fireplace, dining room, diner-kitchen, guest WC, through-room, bedroom wing with large master bedroom with cloakroom and bathroom, further two rooms, cloakroom, bathroom, terrace, balcony with access to the garden.

The lower floor - the garden floor - includes: spacious hall, living room-library, bathroom, storage closet, wine cellar, through-room, room with bathroom for the service personnel, hobby room, study. On this level there is also a guest apartment with hall, living room, small kitchen, two rooms, bathroom and terrace with access to the garden, as well as a swimming pool.

The layout of the ground floor/lower floor is as follows: a portico, main entrance with atrium and impressive staircase as connection to the individual floors, laundry and boiler rooms.
On the garage level/basement there is space for two vehicles. Also a small lift leading to the main entrance level (ground floor).

For the stylish interior only very high-quality materials have been used: parquet and marble for the floors and panelling, large picture windows facing the lake, wooden panelling, high-tech alarm system, natural stone for the outdoor paving, etc.
The villa is surrounded by a carefully tended garden with jasmines, azaleas, rhododendrons, camellias, roses etc. Both in the pool area and in the higher-lying part of the garden, there are very cosy relaxation zones. The higher part is covered with trees, is very well looked after and fitted out with a barbeque area with natural stone furniture.

Due to the architectural features and the linearity of the building both the living rooms and the outdoor area, the facades, terraces etc. can be redesigned or modernised to suit the buyer's personal taste. The building can, however, also be divided into two living solutions with separate and independent entrances on various levels.

Thanks to the advantageous location one can enjoy an unobstructable view of the lake from the villa in an absolutely quiet, private sphere. The lakeside promenade and the city centre of Lugano can be reached in approx. 5 minutes. The villa is an ideal property for people who like to live close to nature, but do not wish to be without the many modern infrastructural amenities nearby.
