Stunning 6 Bedroom Villa with extensive grounds and guest houses - Bellagio

Located above the world famous lakeside village of Bellagio we offer this beautiful and extensive historic villa set with generous grounds. The villa, which dates from the 1800's used to be the local hunting residence and is located just 10 minutes drive from the centre of Bellagio and offers an oasis of peace and tranquillity within a natural setting but within easy reach of the amenities of this popular tourist centre.

The villa is set within mature grounds of 13,000sqm and is accessed via a sinuous driveway, which leads through an avenue of mature beech trees and gradually unveils the principle villa, which itself is wrapped in a beautiful cloak of perfumed Jasmine.

The property is made up of the main villa, a caretakers cottage, guest lodge, garaging and ancient grotto. All sit harmoniously within the grounds and benefit from excellent sunshine.

The main villa is a 400sqm structure distributed over 2 levels offering 6 double bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. The villa is entered through a generous entrance into a hallway with cloakroom, guest WC and generous staircase leading to the upper level. From this hallway one can enter the large kitchen with room for a breakfast table. The fitted kitchen has all conveniences of a modern kitchen including oven, dishwasher, fridge, hob plus a pizza oven. From the kitchen one can enter a protected courtyard space, which offers private and shaded external dining in the evening and a vaulted stone wine cellar. On the opposite side of the hallway one enters a large dining room with direct access to the courtyard and a splendid and luminous living room with direct access into the garden and a stunning antique fireplace.

An internal stair leads to the upper level which offers 6 double bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a storeroom and an open reading/ library space with balcony.

It may be possible to convert the roof attic into a 3rd level offering a further 200sqm.

The main villa is sold in excellent condition with numerous original features including exposed chestnut ceiling, antique fireplace and terracotta floors. The heating system is independent and is powered by mains gas.

Adjacent to the main villa but connected by a covered portico which offers shaded external dining one finds the 100sqm caretakers cottage. This stone building is constructed over two levels and includes on the lower level a large laundry, office space and boiler room. On the upper level, currently accessed via an external stair one finds a living room/ kitchen with balcony, bathroom and bedroom. It would be possible to connect the two floors together to create an independent house over two levels.

In addition, set within the grounds just a short walk from the main villa there is a timber 70sqm chalet which comprises a garage on the lower level and a living room/ kitchen, bedroom and bathroom on the upper level. This chalet has access to a private outside terrace which can be used for external dining/ barbequing. The chalet is entirely autonomous and is currently rented out to tourists independent of the main house. It would make an ideal rental or guest accommodation.

Also within the grounds is a garage for 4 cars, plus parking for many other vehicles, a tool store and a fabulous grotto which used to be the ancient fridge. This space carved out of the rock would make a fabulous spa area if converted.

The 13,000sqm grounds are beautifully maintained and offer a variety of spaces including flat formal lawns, woodland and planting. The grounds are large enough to build a swimming pool and possibly a tennis court subject to local consents.

The property would be ideally suited for those looking for an extensive family villa away from the chaos of the lake but within easy reach of amenities in Bellagio and the lake as a whole. Alternatively it would be ideal for those looking for a property to be turned into a B&B with scope for extension. The villa is currently rented to guests on a weekly basis.

The villa is just 10minutes from the centre of Bellagio and an hour from Milan and the international airports. The village of Civenna is a 2minute drive an offers all the amenities required including local shops, pharmacies and restaurants. The area is extremely popular for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits with unlimited walking, cycling and horseriding opportunities on the doorstep. The small ski runs of Monte St Primo are just a 5 minute drive away and although are dependent on low lying snow offer a further attraction to the area.
