Lake Como Villa Memy – historic Villa, Dependance and grounds
The estate is located in the Comune of Moltrasio (Como). It consists of a villa of the early 1900s and a well planted, terraced historical park with dry-stone walls, paths and stone stairs connecting the different levels. The villa retains a host of original features including the tower and is in good overall condition but would benefit from updating – particularly bathrooms and kitchen.
Outline planning permission exists for lift access from the car park level to the villa. There is also planning for a swimming pool.
On the ground floor there is a stunning original billiard room and a small reading room. On the 1st floor there are 3 large reception rooms, which can be opened up into 1 large open-space, if required. There is a kitchen and a rear terrace plus a large terrace opening out from the living area. There is a bathroom on this level and a staircase leading up to the 2nd floor.
The 2nd floor provides 5 bedrooms and a tower bedroom + a roof terrace with spectacular views over the lake.
All main rooms have stunning lake views. There is a caretakers house in the grounds which would make a separate 2 bedroom unit, as well as an old woodhouse/greenhouse which could also be modified into additional living accommodation.
The total area of the historical park is 2,310 sq. m.
The driveway to the villa, with a double parking space and a circulation area of 175 sq. m, are also part of the estate. Extra parking is also possible with some small alterations.
It is also possible to build a swimming-pool inside the park, by joining two terraced levels on the eastern unplanted area.
Price €1,400,000 (plus 3% agency/marketing fee, plus VAT on agency/marketing fee)
