Property The property is spread over 2,800 square meters with a completely fenced perimeter and accessible via the main gates with stone pillars and private driveway.
The villa dates back to 1960 and was designed by a well-known artist as his private residence on Lake Maggiore. It has been preserved with continuous interventions which, while keeping everything in perfect working order and in step with technological upgrades does not interfere with the guiding principle in the design of the artist, both the materials used and the functionality of the villa are still noteworthy today.
An impressive walnut staircase leads upstairs from the entrance with its wooden parquet flooring.
The charming kitchen off the main entrance is covered in tiles with a central copper hood. The sitting room features a large stone and wood fireplace; the large French windows create a series of ever changing vistas of the garden, lake, mountains and Borromeo Islands.
