Set in a panoramic position above Stresa with magnificent views of the lake, this graceful classic villa offers 450 sqm of spacious and comfortable accommodation for up to 10 people in five bedrooms.
A steep driveway and then granite steps lead up to an elegant colonnaded covered porch where you can sit, dine and relax while admiring some of the finest lake views. A central entrance hall with original murals and frescoes leads to a large bright living room with elegant antiques and a grand piano set in its own indoor veranda. There is also a cosy library (also used as a TV room), and a dining room that can seat 10 people and hung with a. collection of antique porcelain. A charming kitchen opens out to an outdoor garden terrace shaded by empress trees with a stone garden table, barbecue and pizza oven.
The first floor comprises three large bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, and two panoramic terraces. On the lower ground floor there is comfortable living room with a view over the azaleas, and two further bedrooms.
This elegant ‘villa d’epoca’ is very well appointed and much of it recently renovated. It is located on a terraced hill within 8,000 square metres of well-maintained grounds, a vast lawn, a small number of vines, several beautiful outdoor terraces (some with period garden furniture dating from 1930), a large swimming pool area with sun loungers and a pool chalet. There is also a rather special ping pong room in the cooler confines of the garage that is built into the rock near the front gates.
