Villa Pia is a magnificent lakeside property that is situated in Tremezzo which is a much sought after location on the Western shore of Lake Como.
The villa can be easily accessed by road where the main vehicle entrance is located or by the lake via the Villa Pia's private dock.
Villa Pia consists of the main villa (650 square metre) and a separate Annex - Depandance (800 square metres). The main villa is a large impressive period Italian residence and its exterior facade oozes style and lavishness from a by-gone era.
Internally the villa has undergone substantial renovation from the lower ground floor level housing the darsena (boat house) to the mansard (attic floor).
All the main internal works including floors, walls, pipework, electrics etc., have been completed and is now ripe for the purchaser to personal style the interior.
The layout of Villa Pia is as follows:
Lower Ground Floor
At the lower ground floor level there is a large kitchen with dumb waiter (to the ground floor level kitchen area), a bathroom and living area. Also, at this level is the darsena and access to the lake.
Entrance to the ground floor of the villa is reached by an impressive staircase with steps either side leading to the central entrance to the villa. Upon entering the villa there is a substantial open plan space which will house a luxurious living and kitchen area. The open plan space is punctuated left of centre by an imposing circular staircase (leading from the lower ground floor to the attic - mansard), and right of centre an elevator which services all floors.
Opposite the main entrance there are two large windows and patio door situated on the lakeside elevation, which overlook the lake and provides access to the balcony that extends the full width of the villa leading to a large terrace at the right hand side of the villa, which is also the roof of the darsena.
At the first floor level situated at either side of the circular staircase and elevator is situated there are two very large ensuite bedrooms complete with large dressing rooms. Each running the length of the villa from the front of the villa (main entrance) to the rear of the villa (lakeside elevation), providing an insight into the superior quality that could command these spacious rooms.
The layout of the second floor on the left hand side of the villa mirrors that of the first floor providing a large ensuite bathroom with dressing room. The right hand side of this floor houses two large ensuite bedrooms
The attic floor or mansard extends to four sides of the villa and the metal framed and wooden beamed ceiling is punctuated by a number of large Velux windows ensuring a light and airy space. This area could serve a number of uses including storage rooms, additional bedrooms or a self-contained apartment
Main entrance from the road, is a small driveway that descends to garages which are located parallel to the road. The driveway then leads to a large open space which form the grounds of the villa (2,000-2,500 square metres) and leads to the main entrance and a large imposing stone wall beyond which lies the lake
Villa Pia's sumptuous facade provides the purchaser with the opportunity to replicate luxurious high quality finishings internally to meet their specific personalised requirements. The Annex (Depandance) requires complete restoration but given its size will be an equally impressive property when fully restored. Together both villa and annex make this imposing lake side property one of the most impressive within the area and is a hallmark property within our Lake Como properties for sale
The Villa is close to the centre of Mezzegra which has an array of shops and bars and within 2 minutes drive of Lenno which is an important centre on the western shore of Lake Como and forms part Tremezzina, where a number of historical and archaeological treasures can be found in the village of Lenno
