Villa Lidè is a prime waterfront villa for sale on Lake Como and one of the best examples of the rationalist architecture on Lake Como from late 1930s to early 1940s. The villa was built between 1939 and 1941 by the Milanese family of Lida Ferro - better known as Lyda - a famous actress who performed at La Scala in Milan and in television. She spent mainly her summer holidays here.
For more than ten years this luxury waterfront villa has belonged to a special family who loved it from the very moment they saw it. In 2007 the villa was partly renovated and then completely updated in 2010-2011 using first class materials including centrally operated electrical shutters, sophisticated alarm system, wooden and marble floors and bespoke built-in furniture.
The villa with ca 420 smq living space is set on a waterfront park of approximately 1,400 sqm with a totally renovated boathouse with special protections and a new Kone lift system for boats up to 7 tons as well as a pontoon for 4 boats.
A large driveway with Luserna stone and small river stones leads to a large parking area for up to 10 cars. From the parking area the villa is accessed via a new bridge to the roof terrace, from where a lift connects the three floors and the garden, thus making it a barrier-free property.
On the garden floor there is a very large eat-in kitchen opening onto a teak terrace and the garden, a laundry room and a spacious bathroom with shower.
The first floor consists of the hall, the main living room with access to a large terrace, a spacious study, a bathroom with shower and a bedroom with access to a terrace with a fantastic lake view.
The second floor accommodates a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom with bath tub and shower as well as two double bedrooms sharing a bathroom. All main rooms offer amazing lake and mountain views.
During the renovation of the property, the mature park with chestnuts, wisteria, geraniums and firs was further landscaped and embellished with additional special plants. Two large teak covered terraces provide plenty of space for large tables and deck chairs.
Possibility to obtain permission to build a guest house of approx. 90 sqm.
