La Dolce Vita!
Stunning turn of the century Italian Villa meticulously renovated in 2004, restoring such flourishes as egg-and-dart molding, built-in bookshelves, and an eye-catching spiral staircase. An air of old-world romance similarly defines the structure's exterior embellished with green shutters and rustic pediments. This circa 1900 masterpiece is surrounded by lush manicured landscaping and located in the prestigious town of Cernobbio nestled in the hillside just above Lago di Como and near the famed luxury hotel, Villa D'Este.
The main house boasts 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, a double living room with fireplace, a gourmet kitchen with Carrara marble counters and a lovely enclosed conservatory with windows to the sky which was custom built in London by Marston and Langinger.
On the first floor, a study with a lovely terrace, master bedroom with walk-in closet and serene bath. The second floor includes two bedrooms, a study (or 4th bedroom) and full bathroom. The basement houses a cloakroom and laundry. The adjacent guest house on two floors consists of an expansive room just off of the gorgeous garden with a bedroom, bathroom on the upper level. The building adjacent to the swimming pool includes its own bar/sitting room, utility room and bathroom with shower. An entertainer's paradise; an outdoor BBQ corner, several terraces with an array of vantage points looking over the swimming pool, the lake and the Italian gardens with sculptural privet hedges, a rose pergola, various species of shrubs and flowers along with the tropical species are just a few highlights that make this the ideal setting throughout the year. The quality of the restoration, the keen attention to detail, the serene, tranquil and private setting makes this Villa the ideal gathering place for families and friends. The fortunate buyer will enjoy creating memories of a lifetime for generations to come.
Cernobbio is a particularly prestigious address on Lake Como and is best known as a summer playground for the likes of George Clooney, Sir Richard Branson, and Madonna. The Villa D'Este is one of the most beautiful and renowned hotels in the world. Locals with references can become members of their beach and tennis club. Cernobbio is probably the sunniest location on the Lake. It is also extremely easy to reach from the highway that connects to Milan, Switzerland and the Malpensa airport; and the Villa is just 5 minutes to the freeway, whereas many of the other picturesque towns can be 1/2 hour to 45 minutes or longer to access the highway. Italians know this about Cernobbio, as do well-healed vacationers, but not all Americans are as aware of how much more valuable this location is than others. In addition to being in Cernobbio, this property sits high on the hill in a hamlet which has a particularly mild micro-climate. Many Italians actually prefer this location as there is much less humidity being off the lake. One can see a difference even in the olive and pomegranates trees that thrive around this inspiring Villa.
