Beautiful villa Lugarna in Menaggio, near the Golf
Villa Lugarna is a magnificent property located in Menaggio, built in 1910 by architect Giacomo Mantegazza and commissioned by Alfred Wyatt, a wealthy English merchant who fell in love with Lake Como, in particular with Menaggio. 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 square meters, further expandable, and spreads out over three floors plus a basement: On the ground floor there is a beautiful entrance hall with a billiard, 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 beautiful lake view. The property is surrounded by a well-kept English garden of approximately 2.5 hectares, in perfect conditions: Experienced landscapers and gardeners, coming from especially England, have worked for the creation of water features such as ponds and waterfalls that still exist today, fed by natural springs and embellishing the whole property. 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 mountains, 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 and airports: Malpensa is only 1 hour and 15 minutes away.
Menaggio is a charming village located on the western shore of Lake Como, easy to reach from all Milan airports in about one hour and a half (from Malpensa even less). Its central position makes it a lively town and well connected with public transport. The heart of the town is gathered around Piazza Garibaldi surrounded by cafés and restaurants. Strolling along Menaggio’s lovely lake side promenade enjoying the stunning view of the lake surrounded by its lovely mountains is a heart warming experience. In the historical centre of Menaggio there are many interesting monuments which recall its importance throughout the ages. In Via Calvi among fashionable shops, on the facade of the church of S. Marta, the memorial plaque of Minicio Exorato, a notable of the Roman empire testifies the long history of the town. Narrow cobble stoned alleys lead up to the area called castello, the medieval part of Menaggio. The second oldest Golf of Italy was founded here in 1906.
