Wonderful Villa of the 900 with park on Lake Como Griante.
Built between 1903 and 1904 Villa Rosa is one of the architectural gems of Lake Como. The property is located in Griante, on the western side of the lake, in a panoramic position of rare beauty, embellished with the presence of ancient patrician villas, such as Villa Carlotta, Villa Melzi d’Eril and Villa Serbelloni.
The villa is set in a magnificent park of 25,700 sqm, crossed by a gravel boulevard overlooked by a vineyard pergola. At the end of the avenue there are the large original garages.
The villa (1,357 sqm plus 246 sqm of porches, columns and terraces) is built in a style that blends classic elements with early 20th century solutions.
The backside facade has a courtyard with a fountain and is surrounded by two porches. Here you will also find a thermal calidarium and a marble bathtub embellished by two bronze statues.
The property develops on three levels, in addition to the attic floor.
In the basement, with brick vaults, is located the ancient kitchen, cellar and other
service areas including laundry room.
On the ground floor there is a large kitchen, a bathroom, a dining room and four lounges intertwined by an atrium from which a magnificent stone and iron staircase leads upstairs.
On the first floor there is the sleeping area, consisting of seven bedrooms with beautiful views of the park, four bathrooms and a terrace.
There are numerous rooms and bathrooms on the attic floor that once belonged to service staff and are still usable. The jewel of the villa is a tower with a solarium/terrace with breathtaking lake views.
There’s the place in the garden, where the plan provides for the possibility of building of a new habitable structure for a maximum surface area of 349 sqm.
Dock of 145 sqm plus 70 sqm of beach, accessible via private trail complete the property.
The entire property needs some renovation work, although there is a wide margin of recovery of various architectural details at customer discretion.
