Boasting sweeping panoramic views across Lake Como towards the famous Bellagio peninsula, this brand new modern 6-bedroom penthouse with garden and shared summertime pool provides the perfect retreat for families, offering flexible accommodation for up to 12.
Situated on a very quiet road on the hillside, yet only a short walk down to the edge of Lake Como and Menaggio’s vibrant town centre, this serene and sophisticated penthouse is set over two levels, separated by a small internal staircase. The property benefits from double height ceilings throughout, giving a wonderful sense of space.
Five generous double bedrooms and three bathrooms are located downstairs, while the living room, bespoke designer kitchen and one further bedroom and bathroom are located upstairs. This layout provides significant privacy and quiet to the sleeping areas. Every window or balcony in the property offers black-out electric shutters to allow a restful night’s sleep.
Upon entering the luxury penthouse, the open plan Living and Kitchen area sets the scene for year-round relaxation and entertaining. A whitewashed beamed ceiling and serene interior palette of cream and warm muted greys offer a contemporary, tranquil ambience in which to unwind on the comfortable sofa and armchairs. Free WiFi and a wall-mounted flat screen SAT TV provide added home-from-home comfort. Leading directly outside, the open plan reception provides a carefree summertime flow for easy-going alfresco barbeques, as well as laid-back moments spent sunbathing with an ice-cold drink and a good holiday novel.
The bespoke gourmet Scavolini Kitchen showcases beautiful quartz worktops as well as top-of-the-range Siemens appliances and all of your kitchen essentials. All tableware, glassware and cookware is provided to cater to your every need, while still leaving ample storage space. Look forward to enjoying your aromatic morning coffee, delicious homemade meals and fabulous dinner parties; perhaps with the added wow-factor of a private chef experience! (please enquire for more information).
Complementing the Kitchen is a large extendable dining table for up to 12 which offers breath-taking views across the lake. A wonderful and generously sized balcony is situated just off the living area, facing the lake.
Waking up in the scenic lake view Master bedroom as the early sunlight sparkles and illuminates the blue mountain water is the perfect way to start your Lake Como morning. The Master bedroom boasts a super-king sized bed, flat screen TV and En-suite shower room. A second lake view Twin bedroom offers flexibility, with two single beds that can be joined to form a double bed upon request, while a third lake view bedroom is furnished with a double bed provides a restful, couple-friendly haven.
Three further garden/ mountain view bedrooms can be found to the rear of the property. A Twin bedroom (with two single beds that can also be joined to form a double bed), a bedroom with a double sofa bed and flat screen TV and a third double bedroom off the living room complete the welcoming layout of the sleeping accommodation.
Leading off from the stylish open plan living area is a modern shower room with WC. The penthouse is equipped with 3 further high quality bathroom suites (Master en-suite shower room with WC & bidet, a family shower room with WC and a full family bathroom suite with WC). The sleek wash room facilities perfectly reflect and enhances the modernity of the 6 tastefully presented bedrooms.
