Situated on a dominant position over the small town of Mandello Lario, the villa enjoys a wide, unrestricted view of the town and the lake, stretching to the Bellagio promontory, and the Swiss Alps on the horizon. The garden is a gentle slope of grass and bushes, with olive trees, an 80-year old magnolia, palm trees, fig trees, pomegranates, a chestnut tree, and other species, and is fenced all around. The property is accessed from a gate at the lower end of the garden and is located in the midst of a very peaceful area of the town, where resident houses are intermingled with second homes with their large gardens.
The ground floor consists of a garage for one car, a utility room, a laundry room, and a cellar. There is an old well, a barbecue area, and a separate patio area at ground level which is suitable for eating out, sitting six people. At the main level, the entry room leads onto a generous living room (32 sqm) with beam roof and windows on three sides. These overlook the garden around and beneath, and two floor-to-ceiling windows open onto a large patio with lake views, facing west. There is a separate small kitchen, a utility/dining room, a bedroom and a bathroom with both shower and bathtub, also overlooking the garden. A stair leads onto the second floor which accommodates a large double bedroom (20 sqm), three single bedrooms, a bathroom and a study room. There is a large terrace from the bedrooms overlooking the lake. The total floor space of this property is ca 280 sqm.
Currently lived-in, the house is kept in good condition, though it may be upgraded through light refurbishment of the ground floor spaces, and minor fit out works in the kitchen. The house is provided with electricity, TV, internet, water and gas supply, this also feeding the heat system. Overall, this residence provides accommodation for six people. The furniture includes original mirrors, drawers and sofas of the Twenties.
