For Sale - Single family detached home, Single family home
Less than an hour from Milan, an oasis of tranquility beckons you: this large (~645 m²) historic 1910 Art Nouveau villa is immersed in 2.5 acres of greenery. The ground level of the villa comprises the kitchen, dinning room, living room with a fire place, a bedroom and bath. A majestic stone staircase leads to the first floor which includes 4 large bedrooms and two baths. Large balconies off two bedrooms make it possible to enjoy a view of the grounds before retiring and while awaking. Continuing up the stone staircase, you’ll arrive at the study which includes its own balcony for contemplation as needed. A full cellar, for wines and more, completes the picture.
An additional 4 room caretaker’s home (~148 m²) on the grounds, just renovated, is perfect for the in-laws, domestic help or rental income. It includes gas heat and a wood stove ready chimney. A two car garage with chauffeur’s quarters (~59 m²) on the property could be modernized as a third independent home.
The grounds include many period statues, countless trees even older than the villa itself and a grand staircase which, through a cypress walkway, leads to the entrance of the villa. There is plenty of space to add a tennis court, bocce court and a swimming pool, keeping both kids and guests busy. A well on the property can be used for irrigation.
Half way between Como and Lecco lakes and less than an hour to Milan, this villa is ideal for bringing up a family away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Retirees will appreciate the ability to host the entire extended family together from time to time. The property also offers clear potential for rental income, as a holiday B&B and as a suggestive venue for events, including wedding receptions.
While the villa is in very good condition, the new owner would probably want to modernize the kitchen and baths. This would also be the time to take advantage of tax credits for energy improvements by replacing the existing windows, updating the heating system and, while we’re at it, the electrical system.
In summary the property includes:
- the main villa (645 m² approx.)
- the annex (148 m² approx.)
- two-car garage with chauffeur’s quarters (59 m² approx.)
- the garden park (10.000 m² approx.)
- a greenhouse
Don’t let this opportunity pass you by!
