“The branch of Lake Como that faces south”.
The places described are set in the province of Lecco on Lake Como, with its majestic sequences of steep cliffs and rocky banks, deep gorges, and the sheer walls of the mountains that plunge into the water of the lake.
The villa is in Mandello del Lario, between Lecco and the centre of Lake Como: Varenna, Menaggio, and Bellagio.
The villa is located in a 4500 square meter area. The outward appearance of the villa is sober and discreet thanks to the variety of hedges and timber trees of the park. The different gardens of the park have a blend of Alpine and Mediterranean vegetation.
It is an exclusive independent villa of considerable dimensions. It was built on 4 staggered floors which follow the natural downward slope of the hill offering spectacular views of the lake and the mountain chain.
Its structure and the big stones used, both internally and externally, remind of the waterfall house, best known as the Kaufmann House by F. L. Wright in Pennsylvania.
The villa has many spacious rooms (11), which include two lounges with stone fireplaces, a pizza's room with wood stove, various access rooms and 7 bathrooms. It has a separate independent area designed for guests or concierges as well as three garages.
Inside the property there is a semi-Olympic heated swimming pool with changing room, showers, bathroom and storage rooms for pool equipments.
Total floor area: around 600 sq. m
