Full Description: Built in the 1700s, this luxury villa stands at the foot of a hill in one of the most prestigious areas of Como. Steeped in history, this property has been linked to many families of significant historical importance, the crowned lions on all the bronze door handles and the great mosaic in the man hall being testimony to this.
Built as a hunting lodge for the aristocrats coming from the South, it was originally limited to the central block with its dome in typical Palladian style. Later, in the 1800s the central body was expanded with the addition of two lateral wings, creating the majestic dimensions we have today. Various ornaments and decorations of Pompeian style are still visible in the study and in the dining room.
Updated in the 30s, the house is also abundant features from that period. The grand baroque salon, which boasts exceptional acoustics has staged performances of famous musicians.
The facade is one of the many notable features of this splendid villa, with its warm tone of colour, and the monumental columns along with the terrace that runs along the whole width of the building.
Columns and precious marbles, elegant marble terrazzo flooring and frescoed ceilings, both original and restored, are recurrent features of this noble residence that extends over two levels, plus a basement cellar and a live-in attic, with a total of eleven bedrooms.
Outside, a fantastic park with ancient trees and rare plants encircle the property, creating a tranquil atmosphere and stunning views. Irrigated gardens with rock walls, lighting and staircases add to the interest. The garden is a copy of the Asse Hall in the Castello Sforzesco in Milan famous for its pergola panted by Leonardo da Vinci.
Spacious and bright rooms, furnished in classical style create a feeling of splendour.
