Extraordinary villa with panoramic views of Lago di Lugano, well-kept garden and swimming pool
This extraordinary villa for sale is situated above Lago di Lugano in the municipality Porto Ceresio on the south-western end of the lake in Italy. The breathtaking panoramic view reaches across the lake towards west-northwest and onto the “Lepontine Alps”. The privileged and quiet location of this fully-fenced property at the end of the access road guarantees utmost privacy. The very well-tended garden around the villa offers many beautiful sitting areas and a separate terrace for the heated swimming pool with a lawn for sunbathing. The property is ideally exposed to the sun throughout the seasons. The central garden area in front of the villa is enclosed by a covered walkway, a herb garden faces in direction of the lake. The Mediterranean garden features palm-, olive-, cypress-, nut- and chestnut trees. The slopes are terraced and ideal for a small future vineyard. The villa offers enchanting views of the lake along all living areas. The living areas have been designed in the characteristic shape of a cross, which are harmoniously divided into several half-open living spaces, creating a beautiful kitchen and dining area with a partially covered panoramic terrace, TV- and reading room on southwest. The wing on northeast comprises the bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and a spacious home office. The central living area with large glazed doors ingeniously connects the lake- and garden oriented parts of the property. The ground floor features a beautiful wine cellar, sauna, heating room, laundry and several cellar rooms. A separate apartment for guests has also been created on this level. Underground garages for 3 cars and a conservatory with automatic ventilation and heating are located on south. An annexe building has been affectionately restored, connected to electricity and water, and is currently used as additional storage space. This extraordinary property for sale was created by a Swiss architect and fitted out to a high Swiss standard. The entire property is in an excellent condition, the last modernisation works only date back a few years. All furniture and equipment can optionally be taken over.
