Lakeside Villa, one of the most elegant estates on Italy's famed Lake Como, has just been listed for sale at about $35 million. The grounds of the luxurious villa, which boasts George Clooney as a neighbor, look directly across to the famous town of Bellagio.
The property, set in its own stunning and secluded parkland, recently underwent a multimillion-dollar revamp led by famed Milan fashion house Etro and has been featured in Vanity Fair. A key feature is the private terrace directly overlooking Bellagio. There is also an outdoor infinity swimming pool facing the lake and the mountainous landscape.
The palatial interior features six double bedrooms and one twin bedroom suite. A richly appointed living room, a library, children's playroom and extensive wine cellar are complemented by a luxurious spa and gym housed in separate buildings on the estate. A private boathouse sits on the waterfront while a helicopter landing facility is discreetly tucked away on the landscaped grounds.
"This is a unique opportunity to acquire a luxury residence in this highly desirable region," notes Giles Hannah, Director of Sales at Christie's International Real Estate in London. "Its location close to several international airports and near Milan offers an additional convenience to the international ultra-high net worth individual in search of convenient exceptional accommodation; not to mention the many famous Hollywood stars who frequent Lake Como."
