Detached house for sale which is the former porter’s lodge inside the centuries-old park surrounding the prestigious Villa Sourour in Lesa, overlooking Lake Maggiore. All the property and the common parts have been completely renovated in 1994, bringing it back to its old splendour. Romantic paths snake around the park and areas where you can sit down to enjoy the magnificent panorama that is offered by the lakefront location.
Behind the park, on the edge of the property, you reach a pedestrian municipal road, which runs along the back side of the lake’s villas; it is ideal for those who want to jog, ride a bike or for families with children, as it is for pedestrian use only.
This house is on two floors. On the ground floor there are three bedrooms with three bathrooms, two of which are en-suite, and a sitting room overlooking a private courtyard of about 100 sq.metres. On the first floor with the entrance from the rear terrace of 60 sq.metres, there is a kitchen and a dining room.
Upstairs in the attic space is a furnished bedroom for children. It is possible to park the car in a garage at the property. In 2015, to improve the energy performance, all the windows have been replaced and equipped with double glazing. The house is centrally heated with a natural gas boiler.
