Wonderful and extensive 'Villa delle Rose' with mature grounds and beautiful views over Lake Lugano and the Alps

The substantial villa comprises the primary villa over 4 levels, a beautiful orangery with stain glass doors and a substantial gatehouse/ depandance disposed over two levels. The buildings are set within mature grounds of 3000sqm and include a number of sun-filled terraces all with breathtaking views of Lake Lugano and the Alps.
Externally the villa sits with beautiful grounds and includes an elegant wrought iron gateway and sinuous driveway which leads to the main villa lined with beautiful mature pines. One arrives at the villa via a beautiful terrace which acts as a belvedere over lake Lugano. An elegant twin staircase leads to the main entrance.
The circa. 1000sqm villa dates from the early 1900's and includes the following;
An elegant double staircase leads from the terrace to a covered portico and into a generous entrance and stair well. From this space a large dining room, and triple living room can be accessed. The rooms are double aspect with tall ceilings and large windows ensuring lots of light into the space.

All the rooms in the main villa are exceptionally high with double aspect windows and the villa includes a number of features such as the original marble fireplaces, parquet floor and cornice work to the ceilings and walls. The main villa is presented in good condition but would benefit from some internal modernistation to turn it back to a former glory.

First floor - internal stair to the lower floor, hallway, kitchen, bathroom, WC, store, living room and 3 bedrooms.
The dependance requires refurbishment but the structure appears sound and requires an internal modernistaion only.
