The property is located in Lugano, in the district of Carabbia, at an ideal altitude of 523 m, with privileged climatic conditions and with regular connections to public transport.The district is equipped with an extensive network of hiking trails, immersed in nature and offering wonderful walks.  The village of Carona is 602 m above sea level and is a village with a thousand years of history, built by artists in a beautiful location.From Carabbia it is easy to reach the village of Carona, which lies between the peaks of Monte San Salvatore (912 m) and Monte Arbostora (822 m).In the summer months, Carabbia and Carona are a popular destination for tourists as they offer many opportunities for walks, such as a visit to the San Grato Botanical Park, which is a true paradise for nature lovers with its 30,000 m² and has the largest collection of azaleas, rhododendrons and conifers in the region in terms of variety and quantity.Important and pleasant are also the characteristic grotti and the characteristic hotel "Villa Carona", a two hundred year old patrician residence that has hosted important artists, including the writer Hermann Hesse.Carabbia is about 10 minutes by car from Lugano and 20 minutes from Agno airport and is connected to all the surrounding villages and the city by post bus.




The period house, 'Ca' Veggia', built at the end of the 19th century for an important and wealthy Swiss family, was divided by the heirs into two flats in the year 2000, while maintaining the construction in its original state.The main flat for sale has a living area of approx. 160 m² on two levels, connected by an internal staircase.On the ground-floor, the surface area is arranged as follows: entrance hall, hallway, eat-in kitchen with antique fireplace, dining room, living room, balcony and staircase leading to the lower floor - cellars and the upper floor - sleeping area.On the first floor-night area, the surface is arranged as follows: entrance hall, hallway, master bedroom, study, bedroom, large bathroom, and storage room.The same internal staircase connects to the second flat also for sale, but owned by another heir, which has a separate and distinct entrance that insists on the Casa Carina owned by him.  Over time the Casa d'Epoca 'Ca' Veggia' has undergone some improvements, including in 1998 the demolition and reinforcement of ceilings and the re-roofing, while some original finishes from the period of construction have been retained.The flat that occupies most of the 'Ca' Veggia' also has two basement cellars, one of which has a vaulted ceiling in terracotta bricks.  From the first and second floors of 'Ca' Veggia' one can enjoy a pleasant view of nature, the old houses in the centre, the dominant church and even a glimpse of Lake Lugano.    Ca' Veggia has no parking spaces, but it is possible to make use of some public parking spaces located in the small square in front of the house, while a large municipal car park is available a short distance away.  The asking sale price is CHF.  380'000.-  Casa d'Epoca "Ca' Veggia" and Casa Carina are both for sale.Interested customers have the option of purchasing the main flat of Ca' Veggia at the sale price of CHF. 380,000.- or to make a larger investment and purchase Casa Carina as well, the sale price of which is CHF. 760'000.- to have the entire property of Ca' Veggia and Casa Carina at a total price of CHF. 1'140'000.-  Both properties can be modernised with a partly conservative and partly innovative restoration, in order to create one or more special and comfortable living solutions, or to create a B&B, or a grotto, or a restaurant.The uniqueness of the properties, the location and the beauty of the place, as well as the fact that there are no receptive and commercial facilities in Carabbia, could guarantee the realisation of rooms with special charm, magical atmosphere and exclusivity.All these indications have been gathered on the basis of the elements provided by the seller, however without warranty and without liability.
