4+ bedroom chalet in the Val D'Intelvi with stables for 4 horses and indoor plunge pool
Ideal for those looking for a characteristic chalet in an oasis of tranquility but within easy reach of the amenities of Lugano, Como and Milan. The independent house was built in the late 1990's and sits within private and largely flat grounds of 7000sqm. The property has stunning views over the Swiss and Italian mountains and benefits from a lovely sunny position. The property is accessed via a private road which curls through the grounds to an ample parking area for up to 6 cars. 3 garages are accessible from this parking area.
The property is composed of the main house which is distributed over 2 levels, an independent guest house and 2 horse stables.
The main house has an entrance into a lovely living room with traditional fireplaces, exposed chestnut beams and stone walls. From the living room there is access to a generous dining room with large glass sliding doors into the garden and the views of the mountains, the fully equipped kitchen and a second living room with fireplace and doors onto a covered portico. A boiler room/ laundry and bathroom complete the accommodation at the lower level. An internal stair in timber provides internal access to the upper floor where there are 4 bedrooms (one interconnecting which could be used as a dressing room) all with balconies, a bathroom and a study open to the stair. The house is sold in excellent condition. The house also has an internal swimming pool/ plunge pool which the owners cover during the winter months to use as an additional dining space.
Externally the property benefits from an independent guest house with living room, bedroom, kitchenette and bathroom.
In addition there are 2 stables for a total of 4 horses and associated support spaces. Each of the stables has an enclosed paddock but it is possible to ride the horses in the neighbouring woodlands with endless tracks providing links to the hills surrounding the house.
The chalet sits on largely flat lawn and is flanked on 2 sides by beech woodland and open views to the remaining two sides.
The property is located slightly above the village of Casasco in the Val D'Intelvi. The Val D'intelvi is a very popular area due to its position between the lake of Lugano and Como and offers a wealth of walking, biking and horse riding plus access to numerous of the local 'baita's' which provide local food. The property is just a 25 minute drive from Argegno on lake Como and Porlezza on lake Lugano. Como town is roughly 1 hour away.
Wonderful opportunity for those looking to escape to a characteristic chalet in an oasis of tranquility with its own stables and indoor plunge pool!!.
