Villa Lidé is one of the best examples of the rationalist architecture on Lake Como near the end of the 1930's and early 1940s.
The villa was built between 1939 and 1941 by the Milanese family of Lida Ferro - better known as Lyda, a well known actress both at Teatro La Scala in Milan and in television. She continued to use this villa through her old age, mostly for her summer vacations.
Since ten years ago, this luxury home belongs to a special family who loved it from the moment they saw it for the first time. In 2007 the villa was partially renovated and then completely updated in 2010-2011.
The villa is set on a waterfront park of approximately 1400 sq m.
The property includes a large parking area for up to 10 cars, accessed by a large driveway paved with luserna and small river stones.
The park has ancient trees and plants, including chestnuts, wisteria, geraniums and firs. In addition, during the renovation works, the architecture of the garden has been embellished and enriched with other special trees, flowers and bushes.
From the parking area, access to the villa is via a new bridge leading to the flat roof, from where a lift reaches the three lower levels, the ground floor and the garden.
On the ground floor there is a very large kitchen that opens to a teak wood covered terrace and to the garden, the laundry room and a spacious bathroom with shower.
On the first floor there is the main living room with access to a large terrace, a den, the main hall, a bathroom with shower and a very private bedroom with access to the yard with a fantastic lake view.
On the second floor there are two double bedrooms with one bathroom and one master bedroom with ensuite bathroom with bathtub and shower.
The ground floor has two large teak wood covered terraces, with plenty of space for large tables and longchairs.
The property has also a totally renovated boathouse, with special protections and a new lifting system by Kone up to 7 tons; a pontoon up to 4 boats.
Buyers of this property will be granted permission to build a guest house of approximately 90 sq m.
The rationalist architecture features of the original property have been preserved by providing greater emphasis via enlarged windows on the ground floor.
