The room layout is the same on each floor, and there is a large living area with fireplace on each floor leading onto a terrace.From the living room there is a large room which can be used as a kitchen, and a further room which can be used as a study or double bedroom.To the side of the living area there is a small corridor with two bathrooms and two further rooms which are currently used as bedrooms and have access to another terace.The second floor could currently be closed off and used as an independent apartment for rental, staff or guests.
The three floors of the villa are connected by a marble staircase, and the marble flooring runs throughout the Villa in line with the high quality finish.
The ground floor has the same layout as detailed above, but adds a storage area at the back and also another area at the rear of the villa which can be used as a fitness room and sauna.There is a bathroom at the back and plumbing in place for a sauna.The ground floor living area opens out onto a terrace leading directly onto the garden.
The garden runs around three sides of the property and there is a lawned area to one side which has approved planning permission to add a swimming pool.The garden to the front is tiered, and to the other side is well maintained with a mixture of lawn and planting.Irrigation runs through the whole garden, and the current owner would be able to introduce you to the gardeners and ask them to stay with the property.
There is a gate in the garden from which you can walk to the private shared lakefront area.A 5 minute walk from the property is a gated lakefront beach which residents of Valsolda can use subject to a small annual
subscription.From here you can swim directly in the lake, and there are also communal boat moorings also available for a small annual fee.
The Villa currently has a single garage and parking for two cars - this is just above the property and it is a short walk to the entrance from here.There is also planning permission to build two large garages underneath the garden which would change the primary entry point of the property to the ground floor.
The villa has scope to be a fantastic home with a little work, and has potential to improve with the planning permission that is in place.
