Property Description

This spectacular property is one of the most historically significant houses on Lake Maggiore. The estate is set amidst a beautifully planted, private garden, with 500 metres of lake frontage, and is unique for the eclectic and post-romantic style that dominates both the villa and grounds.

The scale of both the villa and gardens, as well as the majestic views over the calm blue waters of Lake Maggiore, excel in fostering the sense of a secluded escape.

The villa boasts several reception rooms, all unique in their style. Featuring wonderful, frescoed ceilings, each is adorned with stunningly crafted furniture, statues and artwork. Each room is a testament to the original owner's wish to bring together intricate and ornate styles from across Europe.

The main part of the villa consists of four floors and was created through the transformation of a pre-existing nineteenth-century building to which a further floor was added. The main villa is surmounted by a roof terrace or belvedere.

The central building, lower in height than the main villa, is composed of a loggia formed by four arches resting on coupled columns. The loggia leads to the two-storey pavilion, which is decorated in the same exquisite manner as the villa, and offers stunning views over the mosaic courtyard to Lake Maggiore.
The main villa sits within its own parkland, extending to around 10,000 square metres. The established gardens, beautifully planted and featuring numerous statues and artistic elements, boasts approximately 500 metres of lake frontage. The grounds feature a swimming pool, tennis court, greenhouses and, to make the most of the lake frontage, a large dock and two small ports. A magnificent mosaic floor, in the lake-facing courtyard, is bordered by a nymphaeum and statues from the seventeenth century.

Towards the southwest corner of the parkland is another large property which could be repurposed as a guesthouse or staff accommodation. The villa and grounds are southeast facing, basking in sunlight for much of the day, and allowing for glorious views over Lake Maggiore to the opposite shore.
This is a celebrated property, that is as spectacular as the sought-after vista that lies before it.
