8611 sqft (800 sqm)
Villa Lugarna is a magnificent property located in Menaggio, built in 1910 by architect Giacomo Mantegazza and commissioned by Mr Alfred Wyatt, wealthy English merchant who made his fortune in India and who fell in love with Lake Como, in particular with Menaggio. Exactly for the will of Mr. Wyatt, the property has, since its construction, a mark of British style as regards both to the structure of the house and the inside, perfectly preserved to this day. The villa features an area of about 800 sqm, further expandable, and spreads out over three floors plus a basement: on the ground floor there is a beautiful entrance hall with billiards room, living room with stone fireplace, dining room, veranda, kitchen, recreation room, guest bathroom and laundry. On the first floor, 3 double suites with their terraces and bathrooms, as well as a double twin room; on the second floor, two double bedrooms with a bathroom. All bedrooms have a wonderful lake view. The property is surrounded by a beautiful English garden of approximately 2.5 hectares, kept in perfect conditions: Mr. Wyatt called specifically from England experienced landscapers and gardeners for the creation of water features such as ponds and waterfalls that still exist today, fed by natural springs and embellishing the whole property; the colors and the scents of this park enchant in all seasons of the year. A cottage for the caretaker, a large garage for 6 cars, an apartment of about 75 sqm, a greenhouse, a shed for tools and other small houses complete the property. Villa Lugarna offers a stunning view of the lake and surrounding Alpine peaks, while guaranteeing optimal privacy thanks to its park. The property is within walking distance of the famous Menaggio and Cadenabbia Golf Club, and is close to major connections to the highways.
