Unique 5 bedroom Villa D'Epoca rich in architectural detailing and within a parkland garden - Val D'Intelvi

Immersed in the beautiful Val D'Intelvi on the Swiss - Italian border and overlooking Lake Lugano we are delighted to offer this stunning Villa D'Epoca at a very interesting price. The 685sqm villa was built in the early 1900's and retains a wealth of beautiful architectural detailing both externally and internally. The villa sits within a wonderful parkland garden which receives the sunshine from dawn to dusk with beautiful sunsets behind the Alps and Monte Rosa.

An independent entrance leads to the villa and a number of generous staircases leading to the villas entrances. The villa is disposed over 3 levels plus a basement level.

Ground Floor - (250sqm) three elegant entrances provide access to three large interconnected and well proportioned living rooms plus a studio. A generous marble staircase provides internal access to the first floor

First Floor - (195sqm) - 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 3 storage areas. Many of the bedrooms have direct access to outside with a 50sqm terrace, balcony and beautiful covered loggia.

Attic level - (50sqm) - 2 large rooms currently used as attic bedrooms

Basement level (190sqm) - With internal or external access the basement level contains and indepenednt entrance, large dining room, kitchen, bathroom , and support spaces such as the laundry and boiler room.

Externally the property has an 80sqm storage area which could be converted into garages for multiple vehicles. Finally the villa has an ancient 'grotto' and wine cellar built amongst the rocks.

The villa is of solid construction externally but requires refurbishment internally to return the villa to a former glory. The villa has a number of interesting architectural details internally including frescoed ceiling, wrought ironwork and original tiled/ parquet floors. All major services are already present at the property.

The villa sits within well proportioned, mature grounds which date from the construction of the villa and include flat lawns where it would be possible to build a swimming pool and an antique fountain. Part of the grounds (700 sq m) are buildable land where it would be possible to build 2 smaller units

It would be possible to extend the villa by up to 300sqm, subject to local consents, making this an interesting option for those looking for a private residence or commercial activity such as a wedding venue. The owner has also secured permission to transform the villa into apartments.

The owner proposes to sell the villa with a substantial part of the grounds surrounding the villa including a private vehicular entrance and a pedestrian entrance. The same owner owns the entire parkland garden including the elegant driveway lined with mature beach trees, the original guest house and a church. These would be in addition to the main villa and associated gardens and more information can be supplied upon request.

Whilst the villa occupies a tranquil and private setting the villa is just a 25minute drive from bustling villages of Lake Como and a 20minute drive to Lake Lugano. The villa is a 100m stroll from a stunning belvedere overlooking Lake Lugano (see attach photos), where there are also a collection of restaurants and bars. The main Village of Lanzo D'Intelvi is a 2 minute drive or cycle along flat roads where one will find a range of local amenities common to the local villages. Lanzo D'Intelvi is famous for its wonderfully fresh air and excellent opportunities for outdoor recreation including endless cycling and walking trials, horse riding stables, golf course and skiing in the winter.
