This elegant property was originally an Italian farmstead, a so-called “cascina“. It is in move-in conditions and was completely renovated in 2009 including electricity, plumbing, wiring, walls and roof using high quality materials with love and extreme attention to detail.
The exterior is decorated in Lombard/English style, with particular attention to the symmetry of the windows and corners.
At the entrance a large trompe-l'oeil painting showing the lake view visible from the villa welcomes one before entering the house.
This home is set on three floors. The ground floor is composed of a veranda, a living room, a huge kitchen, a bathroom and a wine/food cellar. A fireplace in the living room and a wood stove in the veranda room contribute to the cosy atmosphere during winter.
A wine cellar in the back of the kitchen keeps the perfect temperature for food and hundreds of bottles of wine collected and stored in antique roof tiles decorating the cellar.
On the first floor which can also be accessed from the car parking, there are three bedrooms, an office with boiserie, a spacious bathroom with a steam bath, shower and a second bathroom with steam bath shower.
The second floor which is an attic hosts an amazing suite with master bedroom, study corner, walk-in closet and a spacious bathroom with a special tailormade steam bath.
The vaulted, tailor made ceiling of the steam bath has 2 rows of micro lights with chromotherapy effect, B&O water-resistant loudspeakers for music therapy as well as aroma therapy. The bathroom has special Jerusalem tiles which is the best material in this kind of wet rooms. This is an exceptional room for relaxation, for example, after a long trekking day on the green mountains behind the villa.
The finishes and materials are precious, walls and ceilings have “marmorino” finish (a special hand made plaster less glossy than venetian plaster), the beams are hand-decorated by expert decorators and many details have been finished with pure gold leaf after a special treatment to preserve them.
The furnishings include Poggenpohl kitchen with Gaggenau and Miele appliances, Chesterfield sofas and armchairs by Poltrona Frau or Laura Ashley.
The master suite in the attic is accessed by a staircase with an illuminated wall with an adjustable chromo therapy system. The master bedroom is set on an illuminated platform from where is possible to admire the wonderful view of Lake Como and its most majestic mountains, the Grigna. The large walk-in closet, illuminated and also equipped with B&O loudspeakers and an additional storage room containing the air conditioning control system complete this floor.
