Villa Lilla was built by its current owners 10 years ago after spending years looking for the perfect plot of land. The location on a quiet lane, benefits from all-day sunshine & stunning lake and mountain views.
The Villa was built to a high specification as a permanent main home, and was later rented out on a weekly basis during the summer months with a superb income over a 10 year period.
The villa is laid out over 3 floors:
The ground floor: there is a high-spec modern kitchen with island and dining area, leading down to a spacious living area with 3 sets of large patio doors and to maximise the stunning views. This area leads out directly to a side garden and a spacious tiled area surrounding the pool. There is a twin study/bedroom on this level with an elegant cloakroom with slate sink. The upper floor: there are 2 large bedrooms both with ensuite bathrooms and sharing a large wrap-around terrace with stunning views. The master bedroom has 3 sets of floor to ceiling windows and a large ensuite bathroom with walk in shower and stylish encased bath. The second bedroom also a double has a spacious ensuite shower room.
The lower ground floor: this can be accessed either internally or externally and can be used as a separate flat and has plumbing already installed to add a kitchen if so desired. It is currently laid out as a living area with large patio doors leading to a second garden and driveway, 2 bedrooms and a shower room.
Externally the property has a main driveway at ground floor level, side garden, pool area to front and side and a lower driveway and garden serving the lower ground floor.
