Full description:

Wonderful and extensive 'Villa delle Rose' with mature grounds and beautiful views over Lake Lugano and the Alps

Positioned in a stunning position overlooking the Swiss Alps and Lake Lugano we offer this beautiful Villa D'epoca - Villa delle Rose. The substantial villa comprises the primary villa over 4 levels, a beautiful orangery with stain glass doors and a substantial gatehouse/ depandance disposed over two levels. The buildings are set within mature grounds of 3000sqm and include a number of sun-filled terraces all with breathtaking views of Lake Lugano and the Alps.

Externally the villa sits with beautiful grounds and includes an elegant wrought iron gateway and sinuous driveway which leads to the main villa lined with beautiful mature pines. One arrives at the villa via a beautiful terrace which acts as a belvedere over lake Lugano. An elegant twin staircase leads to the main entrance.

The circa. 1000sqm villa dates from the early 1900's and includes the following;

Ground Floor

An elegant double staircase leads from the terrace to a covered portico and into a generous entrance and stair well. From this space a large dining room, and triple living room can be accessed. The rooms are double aspect with tall ceilings and large windows ensuring lots of light into the space.

First floor

Generous hall way with 3 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a studio. Two large terraces accessible from 2 of the bedrooms and the study complete the accommodation. One of the terraces has wonderful views over Lake Lugano and the Alps

Second Floor

Within the roof area there are an additional 4 double bedrooms, a bathroom and large storage area. A stunning bedroom within the 'tower' completes the accommodation.

Lower Ground Floor

The original service area with large kitchen, stores, cellars, laundry, WC and boiler room

Basement level

Stunning orangery with tall ceilings and beautiful stain glass doors. This area would make a stunning health suite/ indoor swimming pool.

All the rooms in the main villa are exceptionally high with double aspect windows and the villa includes a number of features such as the original marble fireplaces, parquet floor and cornice work to the ceilings and walls. The main villa is presented in good condition but would benefit from some internal modernistation to turn it back to a former glory.

Dependance/ gatehouse

Two storey L-shaped building adjacent to the main entrance to the property and includes - ground floor - 2 stores, portico/ Garage, boiler room, living room, entrance , small kitchen and bathroom. First floor - internal stair to the lower floor, hallway, kitchen, bathroom, WC, store, living room and 3 bedrooms.

The dependance requires refurbishment but the structure appears sound and requires an internal modernistaion only.

The villa is positioned in an elevated position in LanzoD'Intelvi and is surrounded by similar elegant villas. It is a short drive to main village of Lanzo whilst a restaurant and bar are located just 150m from the property. LanzoD'Intelvi is strategically positioned between Lake Como and lake Lugano and offers a tranquil setting away from the busy lakes and slightly cooler temperatures in Summer.

Lake Lugano is a 20minute drive from the property whilst lake Como is just 25minutes away. The area around LanzoD'Intelvi is very popular for its natural beauty and offer endless opportunities for walking and mountain biking. Horse stables nearby offer horse riding and the Golf course at Lanzo is just a 5 minute drive from the property. In winter there is some skiing on the hill above Lanzo.
