Stately Lake Como Villa with Pool and Boathouse

Pognana Lario Reference number: PG-101-EN
Type: Villa
Zone: Italy - Lake Como

Originally built around 1770 in the historic village of Pognana Lario, this imposing villa rises up over 3 floors, with no less than 6 spacious bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, all with different lake views and two having balconies overlooking the water. The house is beautifully proportioned with opulent entertaining space on the ground floor, comprising a vast drawing room with fireplace, opening directly onto the lakeside garden through arched French doors, and interconnecting with two further high ceilinged reception rooms on either side. A well sized kitchen, with open fireplace, also leads onto the side terrace, garden, swimming pool and boathouse. The property has been completely and lovingly restored, retaining many of the original features such as a marble fireplace, the cotto tiled floors throughout the first floor and the grand granite staircases. A vast attic space, under the original roof timber beams, covers the entire floorplan of the house and could be used for storage or adapted to further living space. Aside from the front door, another door enters into the gardens, under an age old wisteria, resplendent in Springtime with its heavy droops of lilac flowers covering this side of the house.

This part of the village of Pognana is picture postcard, a few pastel coloured village houses and ancient cobbled streets completely unspoilt by the ravages of time, a rare delight! Long before cars were invented, the noble villa owners came and went from their estates by boat which remains the case to this day. A stepped path which leads to the road above is only accessible by tractor, or on foot. This seclusion however retains the integrity of the centro storico riva, historic lakefront part of the village. The public ferry also stops year round at Pognana and Como is reached in about 20 minutes. Due to its optimum position in the second basin, Pognana enjoys year round sun and the most glorious sunsets in winter. As well as Como, the nearby villages of Faggeto, Torno, Laglio and Cernobbio, with their cafes and restaurants serving typical lake fish and pasta dishes are a only short boat ride away.

For anyone seeking a prestigious Lake Como residence unspoilt by traffic and modern day pollution, this property would make a fabulous home to enjoy the pleasures and beauty of the lake year round.  Price on request.
