This enchanting dwelling standing on a hill overlooking the Lake of Varese and surrounded by a centuries-old park with magnificent trees, was built in the late 1400s. It is located 8 km away from Varese, in the historic center of Azzate. It may be described with a secret garden, because the view from the outside quite differ from what unfolds before the eyes after crossing the entrance. From the very first glance we get the impression of travelling centuries back in time, where the beauty of the park has been further enriched thanks to careful planning and design in addition to the internal and external restructuring of the building. The present owners of the property acquired it in the mid-1900s, which enhances its historical value and aesthetic standards even more.

Inside the park with a total area of 14.500 sq.m there is a private swimming pool. In the wing facing the main part is situated the service area with the caretaker’s apartment, the garage and the storage room. With its 1.230 sq.m of total interior area and the park, this historical residence for sale greatly harmonizes with the landscape that overlooks Lake Varese.
