Historical house on Lake Como
Charming, cozy and romantic house, located inside the pedestrian zone on the lake, opposite the picturesque boat port of Riva Granda.
Thanks to its unique location in 3 minutes, you can walk to several Michelin-starred restaurants, equipped beach and a magnificent park with a swimming pool and tennis courts, in which the famous ice rink is built in winter. A few steps from the house there is a boat station and a bus stop.
From any point of the house offers breathtaking views of the lake and the Alps, the structure is oriented to the south and is free on three sides. The house is built in three levels plus a residential attic floor. Restoration did not change the initial historical style, but made the interior space of the house more comfortable and functional.
First floor: an entrance hall with a stone staircase leading to the upper floors. To the right of the entrance is a dining area overlooking the water, mountains and boat pier, separated from the kitchen only by a historic arch with built-in niches. Kitchen furniture includes a fireplace with a glass door, allowing you to cook a barbecue. Here is also a well-stocked pantry.
Second floor: bright and spacious living room with a beautiful fireplace and two French windows leading to a stone balcony overlooking the lake.
Third floor: two bedrooms, one of which is now converted into a dressing room and a bathroom.
Mansard floor with exposed wooden beams: now used as an office, on the floor also parquet floor, sunroof and two small oval windows. You can leave it as a multipurpose room or equip another 2 bedrooms, or rebuild part of the floor and make an open terrace.
There are two more bathrooms, only three in total, in addition to the laundry, all with windows.
The furnishings used teak wood and Lombardy terracotta.
The house is ideal for permanent residence and for holidays, or as an investment option for rental in a tourist rental (1000 euro per day min).
