Exquisite 8 bedroom historic villa with tower and two independent apartments, nestling in nearly 7 acres of glorious land while enjoying panoramic views from its South facing location near all amenities in Como.
This wonderful property from the 1500s situated in the Cardano area, was initially a holiday home and agricultural estate. In 1859, the period of the battle of Garibaldi in San Fermo, it became the principal residence of an Austrian noble family. The current owner has completely renovated the building while maintaining the main architectural features.
The residence is of great charm and unparalleled beauty, ideal for residential use, even to become a relais chateau or a luxury B&B. The dimensions are 1,150m2, and the land is 28,000m2 partially wooded. In addition, the structure has two independent apartments that can be used for staff and guests or tourist use.
The main villa is divided as follows: On the ground floor is an entrance, study, double living room with a chest of drawers and majestic fireplace, a
dining room with a large fireplace, and a spacious fitted kitchen.
On the first floor is a large bedroom with an important parquet floor with bathroom en suite, two large bedrooms with parquet flooring and a bathroom, a study and a walk in wardrobe, a further living room with kitchen and dining room and fireplace with stove wood burner in cast iron.
On the top floor are two other bedrooms with bathrooms, in addition to the panoramic tower. The villa's orientation is to the South, and it enjoys excellent exposure and maximum privacy, immersed in its centuries-old garden.
There is an 8 car garage of approximately 200m2 in the villa. The finishes are of the highest quality and historical significance, with several fireplaces in the individual rooms, giving prestige to the dwelling.
The double glazed windows and solar panels for hot water complete this exquisite property.
