AMAZING WATERFRONT HISTORICAL VILLA, 7 BEDROOMS, 6 BATHROOMS, PRIVATE BEACH.

Photos and Description of this 7 bedroom holiday villa in Mezzegra - Villa I Platani Lake Como

7 bedrooms 6 bathrooms Waterfront Villa with garden and boat house in Tremezzina

Villa I Platani is one of the most prestigious waterfront 19th-century Villas on Lake Como, elegantly furnished with a blend of antique pieces and up-to-date appliances, with one of the largest lakefront parklands on the lake strewn with mature trees, such as Europe’s tallest plane tree (or, for the Americans, sycamore).

Brimming with old-world charm, Villa I Platani has been preserved and updated to the highest standards. The mansion has just become available for holiday rentals for the first time since the 1930s.

The location is absolutely outstanding, as the Villa faces the lake with unobstructed views on all sides, surrounded by an extensive level garden in the English romantic style punctuated by exotic mature trees and shrubs. On the grounds are also a boathouse – half of which dates back to the 18th century – a green-house, terraces and shaded areas for al fresco dining and relaxing, and a lakefront landing that gives private access to the lake.

The Villa is fenced in by high walls and hedges for both privacy and security. A smaller house (not for rent) is for the custodians who take care of the Villa and its grounds. The property is equipped with an alarm system directly connected to a security company, and in turn to the Carabinieri.

The entrance to the Villa is through the main floor via an elegant foyer, a central, high-ceilinged fabulous living area with working fireplace and lake views, two separate living areas with piano and TV, a separate, large dining room beside the living area, a large kitchen, a breakfast nook (all with direct access to the garden), and a powder room.

The massive stone walls on the main floor are decorated with silk wallpaper; the ceilings are paneled, while all the windows are glazed with small panes of glass separated by lead glazing bars. The walls of the foyer and the living room are wainscoted. The fireplace in the living room is made of natural local stone, while the one in the piano room is in marble. The dining room walls and ceiling were frescoed by a local artist with motifs inspired by the villa and its grounds. The combination of all architectural elements with sumptuous pieces of furniture and paintings creates an atmosphere of old-world luxury.

On the first and second floor are 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, in addition to a maid’s room with en-suite shower and laundry facilities.

The first floor is accessed by an elegant stone staircase (a stair lift is also available if needed). On this floor are 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, all with amazing lake views: 1 single bedroom; 1 central double bedroom with terrace; 1 double bedroom with terrace with both garden and lake views as well as an en-suite bathroom with bathtub; 1 bathroom with bathtub and double sink; and 1 bathroom with shower. This floor can accommodate 4 to 6 people.

The second floor is accessed by the same staircase (and also by a stair lift). On this floor there are 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms; 1 maid’s room with its en-suite bathroom with shower and laundry facilities. This floor can accommodate 7 persons in 2 bedrooms with twin beds and another one with twin beds plus an extra single bed for a child. All such bedrooms afford amazing lake views.

Tremezzo is particularly rich in villas and gardens, well known since the eighteenth century as a mandatory stop of the Grand Tour in Italy.

Stendhal (1783-1842) as described in the account of his travels in Italy: 'Finally we saw the beautiful beach of Tremezzo, whose graceful valleys enjoy the atmosphere of Rome. I feel the cold of Milan, in fact, come to spend the winter, and the buildings are mushrooming on the green of the hills, from whence are reflected on the water. It's too much to call them palaces, but is little call country houses. It is a way of making elegant, picturesque and voluptuous, special to the three lakes and the hills of Brianza. '

Today, as then stay in Tremezzo is a delight for the senses, a chance to relax in front of the wonders of nature and human ingenuity. Beautiful views, ranging from mountain ranges to small creeks combine the charm of the lake in rural villages and historic religious buildings of considerable importance.

In providing a brief description of the most important villas of Tremezzo is first of all essential to devote a special section of the museum and botanical gardens of Villa Carlotta.

Other prestigious villas are now privately owned, but first analyze some salient features, together with a description of the public park dedicated to Teresio Olivelli is appropriate to mention one of the main architects of some of these buildings, the architect Pietro Lingeri.

 Finally, the area is particularly rich in religious buildings, strongly linked to the development of the small villages.
