Magnificent villa on Como Lake surrounded by an age-old garden, with a swimming pool and breathtaking views on the most romantic Lake in the world Como Lake!
We propose for sale one of the most important Villas overlooking the west coast of the first basin of Lake Como.
The Villa of about 1,000 sqm, with an attached concierge house (130 sqm), garage, greenhouses, swimming pool with storage facilities, porches and others storage facilities, tennis court, gardener’s house, 2 rustic houses, was built in the 1920s and was renovated 40 years later by the architect Luigi Caccia Dominioni, while the external areas (3 hectares of park) are the work of Pietro Porcinai, the greatest Italian landscape designer in the 1900s, who created a wonderful stage on Lake Como.
Porcinai designed a terracing towards Lake Como, a circular parterre completely covered with lawn, hiding below the premises used for the guests’ stay. The swimming pool on the side of Como, and the grassy promenade on the edge of the woods, stand on the second terracing whose support walls are completely covered with evergreen climbers.
Treewoods are important not only for their beauty but also for their functionality: two square hedges orient the view from the living room to the garden; Two plantains, expertly pruned, visibly outline the prospect of the lawn; An isolated cypress, at the center of the stage on the lawn, captures the sublime view on the first basin of the Lake and the city of Como.
The ramps, made of stone ""Moltrasina"" (located on the coast), lead to the lower part of the park, the tennis court, the greenhouses, to the gate of the second entrance. Above, the wood is populated by a collection of maple trees, with horns, holm oaks, wormwood, corbezzoli, azaleas and rhododendrons.
