Luxury Lake Como Villa
As I approached the property, with one singe glance, it is evident this property exudes history, grace, and magnificence! Situated by the Griante on the west shore of Lake Como, the position of the Villa offers unobstructed and panoramic views of the water below and the mountains above up to the towering white tops of the Alps. From the angle of the property perched high above the lake you will enjoy endless breezes and bright colors that reflect off of the lake. Directly across the way, you can gaze upon the whimsical and picturesque village of Bellagio, with views of the dramatic Alpine in your backdrop. I visited this property in 2015 in early evening; I returned the following day to photograph the property Words can’t describe the views of the lake under the reflection of the sun. It is quite spectacular.
Known for its rugged scenery and deep blue waters, this lake is also one of the deepest in Europe. The Villa offers unparalleled mountain views of this idyllic area of Italy amid refinements fit for aristocracy. The entrance of Villa features a beautiful stone fountain and large waterfall. Saunter into an elegant foyer with fifteen foot ceilings, a crystal chandelier, and a marble staircase and floors. The left staircase leads to the first floor where four bedrooms are located. The right leads to the modern living room with comfortable couches and a Yamaha grand piano. An attached ”˜lake front’ sitting room offers lounge chairs and amazing views of the lake. You will also find a study with an antique oak desk and marble fireplace as well as an enchanting formal dining area.
