Exclusive and Prestigious property with fantastic view of Lake Como.
In Bignanico, with a superb panoramic park overlooking the first basin of Lake Como, we propose this dream house.
The Villa, of about 1,000 square meters, was built in the ’20s and renovated 40 years later by the architect Luigi Caccia Dominioni.
In the gorgeous property, in addition to the villa, there are a porter ( about 130 sqm), a large garage, a greenhouses, a swimming pool with ancillary rooms, an arcades and a storage rooms, a tennis court, the house of the gardener, the heliport and 2 cottages.
The villa is spread over several levels.
On the ground floor, through an important staircase you move into an entrance with access to several important living rooms, studios and libraries, all superbly furnished.
On the first floor are the 5 bedrooms, with attached private bathrooms, a gym, a children’s play room and a private study.
On the second floor there are two further bedrooms, with bathroom and ancillary rooms.
In the basement the kitchens, the storerooms and local accessories.
The panoramic park, over 3 hectares, is a work designed by Pietro Porcinai, the greatest Italian landscape designer of the 20th century, who created an admirable stage on Lake Como. In autumn its gentle slopes are tinged with the bright tones of red, orange, yellow of maples foliage, or oaks or pomegranates, and in spring with pink, blue, yellow, white spectacular blooms of azaleas, rhododendrons and camellias.
Porcinai designed a terracing towards Lake Como, a circular parterre completely covered with lawn, hiding under the rooms used for the guests’ stay.
Also the swimming pool, which is on the side towards Como, and the grassy promenade at the edge of the wood rest on a second terracing whose supporting walls are completely covered with evergreen creepers.
Tree species are important not only for their beauty, but also for their functionality: two square hedges direct the view from the living room of the Villa towards the garden; two plane trees, cleverly pruned, visually limit the perspective of the lawn; an isolated cypress, at the center of the meadow stage, captures the sublime view of the first basin of the lake and of the city of Como.
Ramps, made with “Moltrasina” stone (laid on a herringbone rib), lead to the lower part of the park, to the tennis court, to the greenhouses, to the gate of the second entrance. Above, the forest is populated by a collection of maples, along with hornbeam, holm oaks, baguettes, strawberry trees, azaleas and rhododendrons.
Several routes, including an impressive scenic walk, allow you to admire the view with the view of the park, the lake, the city of Como and the surrounding mountains.
