About the property

Approx. 250 m² living area. Garden, terrace, balcony. 4 bedrooms & 3 bathrooms

The charming “Villa San Martino” is part of a former convent dating back to the 17th century which was purchased by the great-grandfather of the present owner and converted for the family. The unusual interior shows clearly that 3 generations of architects have left their mark here. The harmonious combination of antique furniture, old ceiling and wall paintings and modern design lend the ambience a unique character. On the one hand you will find Philippe Starck bathrooms, on the other you can lay your head on the historical „Cardinals Bed“. The approx. 250 m² living area extends over the entire ground floor and the first floor. In total it comprises a approx. 40 m² living hall with floor to ceiling panorama sliding-doors, a dining-room with fire-place, a separate eat-in-kitchen, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a guest W.C. The spacious terraced garden has various levels with several different relaxation areas in which to read, sunbathe or simply enjoy the wonderful view of the lake. The approx. 3 m x 3 m x 1,30 m hexagonal refreshment pool (open from 01.06. to 30.08.) with its own spring is situated just beneath the sun-terrace and a real treat on hot days. For those wishing to be a little more active, the area provides a network of wonderful walking and hiking tracks and a golf-course, 3 km further up in Premeno. There is a public swimming pool ca. 1 km away and a ten-minute car drive will take you to Intra with its restaurants and shops, public beach and bathing place, and lake-side promenade. In the upper part of the house there is a small appartment which is only used occasionally and will not detract from your privacy. One parking space is available within the grounds and directly beside the entrance gate there are also gratis public parking spaces.
