The period villa lies on the edge of the historic centre of the village, in a prominent position above the village itself and with distant views of the romantic hill and mountain landscape of Lombardy, as far as the Monte Brè of Lugano in Switzerland and a little of Lake Lugano. It stands in park-like grounds, approx. 8,500 sq. m. in size with centuries-old mature trees such as copper beeches, palms, cypresses, holly, lime trees, magnolias, rhododendrons, camellias, jasmines, hydrangeas, roses etc.; in the park there is a bocchia court and a small romantic pond.
The stately mansion in the style of a Palazzo d’Epoca is listed in a publication about villas in the area and in the province of Varese and described as a significant building in Liberty style (Italian art-nouveau style).
The monumental architecture of the Villa d'Epoca is most impressive; the neo-classical part of the palazzo probably originated around 1850, whereas the neo-Gothic tower dates back to 1880.
The villa comprises 2 grand storeys with high ceilings with numerous historic frescoes and fireplaces. Above these is a completely extended attic in the high roof. Altogether on these three floors there are approx. 1,000 sq. m. of living area; in addition to this a basement or cellar with a further approx. 400 sq. m. utility space. All 4 levels are connected with one another via a lift and via spacious open staircases and stairs.
Purchase price is negotiable directly with the owner.
