The property is developed over several levels, to be explored and discovered. 
The main Villa emerges from the rock cliff below and overlooks a large south-facing garden with a pool which is connected both to a winter garden gym and art area up above, and a solarium with a Jacuzzi, down below, with lovely views of the local marina and the village of Torno. 
The main villa was built in the 1830’s by a famous local artist and boasts 4 double bedrooms and a two-bedroom family suite (2+2), each with en suite bathrooms, along with a large dining and entertaining area leading to the garden, with spectacular views of the lake. The current indoor design is classic and coherent with the iconic lake heritage. 
A path then leads down through the garden to the boathouse: the top floor includes a private presidential suite composed of 1 double bedroom en suite, a twin bedroom reachable through a spiral staircase and that opens on the living area, a dedicated kitchen and a living/cinema room. The lower floor of the boathouse is dedicated to a games room and Spa area to relax and unwind.

There is also a staff area comprised of 2 bedrooms and one bathroom. 


Upon arrival a gate house welcomes you at the top of the property. A short drive down takes you to a large belvedere terrace overlooking the entire estate.
The garden is majestic, spanning the 40m elevation from the local road to the lake itself and enriched by statues from the local artist Giuseppe Croff.
The garden develops over several levels providing sensational views of Lake Como from a variety of altitudes,and ending in dramatic rock-cliffs with a private waterfall that reminds you that we are in a pre-alpine area. There is plenty of space for lounging, partying or finding privacy for a romantic stroll or to enjoy a good book by the lake. You will enjoy the beautiful heated pool.
Should you feel like exploring further, a private, gated path will easily lead you to the centre of Torno, where you can enjoy the atmosphere and one of the high quality restaurants in the village.
The property also has a parking and a private mooring (up to 12 metres).
