This superb luxury villa near Milan, in Casatenovo (LC), is easily reachable from Milan which is just about 30 kilometres northeast of Milan and about 20 kilometres southwest of Lecco.
Located within a gated community of 34 villas, the property is set in a park of over three hectares embellished with dozens of ancient trees and fruit ones.
The villa, built in the 70s, was completely renovated in 1998 by the current owner. Thanks to a careful maintenance program, today it is in excellent conditions either internally or externally.
The property consists of the main villa of 1,000 sqm, the depandance – an octagonal building of about 300 sqm, a garage of 150 sqm, which was used as an exhibition hall for vintage cars, a swimming pool, a tennis court, a bowling green, a greenhouse and a shed for tools.
In the main villa, arranged on two levels and set at the top of the land, the large windows and the various terraces, porches and patios create a fusion between inside and outside that allows the gaze to wander in the greenery admiring the magnificent ancient trees.
On the upper garden floor of almost 600 sqm, we find the entire day and night area, as well as the kitchen and accessory spaces.
The living area features a large entrance hall, the main living room, a separate television area, a study, a large dining room that houses a table for 14 people and a powder room.
The kitchen serves both the formal dining room, the family one and the magnificent veranda, a covered space of over 40 sqm that plunges into the garden.
In the sleeping area, in addition to the master bedroom with its boudoir, large wardrobe and bathroom, there are three further suites each one of them with a sitting room and bathroom.
The guest apartment, the billiard room with an additional powder room, the large tavern, a fitness and spa area consisting of gym, turkish bath, sauna and shower are located on the lower garden floor, overlooking the pool, together with the staff quarter and laundry, pantry and cellar, as well as the technical rooms and the security vault.
The annex features a separate apartment of 148 sqm with its living room, kitchen, two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The swimming pool is 19 meters long and has a very large sunbathing area with changing rooms, bathroom with shower.
The estate has three magnificent hectares of park. The park was completely renewed in 2004, features a naturalistically rich and extremely varied environment, characterized by natural heights, which together with the circular paths and majestic stairways, lead to the top of the property, where the main villa is located.
At the foot of the Villa, the different shrub species frame the circular pool; that’s why it used to be called “The Amphitheatre Park”. 80 types of tree species and 50 shrubs shape the environmental richness of the park. Among the most characteristic tall trees we find maples, cypresses, birches, firs, oaks, beeches, magnolias, cedars, planes, robinie, and conifers. There are also several fruit trees including cherry, persimmon, pear, hazelnut, walnut, plum, apricot and pomegranates, which paint the park with magnificent colours. This diversity of species provides the estate a special uniqueness.
To preserve the magnificence of the park, the owners have purchased an additional 4 hectares of bordering land, with a permission to build an additional volume of 2.500 cm. This plot of land is also part of the sale.
