The real property, surrounded by green landscape and reachable by a private drive, is located in one of Lugano's most exclusive residential areas, featuring beautiful villas and gardens and dominated by a majestic forest crossed by the panoramic Via San Francesco. The location of this two-floor villa and of the lawn space situated in front of it - in the relaxation area featuring a swimming pool - with ample vision of the surrounding landscape, offers panoramic 180 degree views extending to lake Lugano and the nearby mountains. Thanks to their south-facing position, both the villa and the park enjoy long hours of sunshine. The large indoor space of the main floor, especially the double living room with a fire place and the dining room, are very light thanks to the large windows fitted in the wooden match-boarded slopes of the roof with access to the covered terrace with its panoramic views and the garden. Both the indoor and the outdoor staircases lead to the lower floor which, too, is equipped with large windows with wooden frames along the porch, giving access to the garden The open spaces of the garden, cleverly planned and skillfully bestowed with movement, with natural stone walls and stairs, create a system of sheltered areas beautifully landscaped with carefully selected ornamental plants and tall trees. The western part of the real property is protected by a stretch of woodland which ensures the utmost privacy. Location: the remarkable location of the villa offers the rare privilege of enjoying the peace and quiet of the countryside in spite of being only 7 minutes away from the city centre. The property is located in the vicinity of shops, shopping centres and the most important facilities. International schools such as the TASIS - American School and Universities are easily accessible. Connection: road and public transport connection with Lugano city centre and good motorway access. Lugano Agno airport can be reached in 15 minutes by car. Building area: The considerable expanse of the area that can still be build (F.A.R. 0.40) makes it possible to more than double the current volume of the existing building as well as to use the plot of land, in the future, to undertake a comprehensive project for the construction of a new building of approximately 1070 sq. m.
