This stunning period property is the only residence standing on a private island in Lake Como just off shore from Lecco and totally surrounded by water with jetty and dock, but no bridge.
The island is a piece of the history of the area of Lombardy, there are maps dating back to 1723 which depict it. It is assumed that, given its shape and its present state, the island was used as a defence fort, later becoming a fisherman's house.
The island is about 110 metres long and at most 30 metres wide, the minimum distance that separates it from the mainland is about 11 metres; no bridge, however short the distance, connects it to the mainland (it is possible to check the feasibility of a pedestrian bridge).
Most of the emerging land (about 2,300m2) is used as a tree-lined garden while the southern part houses the only building on the island dominated by a circular tower on two levels.
The island comprises a main house composed of a rectangular building and a tower on two levels, which totals approximately 140m2; an attic of 132m2. ; Balconies 10m2; a closed veranda of 27m2. ; storage rooms for a total of 73m2. a courtyard of 233m2 and a garden of approximately 1,600m2.
The structure could also have commercial / accommodation potential. In February 2013 the F. A. I. has classified the island as "Luogo del Cuore" a heritage of historical interest for The Cultural Heritage.
A total renovation is required, to be agreed with the authority of cultural heritage.
