Torno renovated Villa with cozy garden and lake view

Via Monte Rosa, 8 - Torno


Torno renovated Villa with cozy garden and lake view

At the entrance to the town of Torno on Lake Como, the villa fits gracefully into the upper part of the village thanks to a careful renovation project that took place last year.
The villa has new technology systems aimed at energy saving, large spaces that are very usable and organized in a modern way, in the name of the family.

The Villa
Arranged on two levels in addition to the attic floor and the floor dedicated to the cellars, the property presents itself with simple elegance.
Through the courtyard in front, which can also be accessed by car, you reach the main entrance of the house by climbing a few stone steps.
The entrance opens, on the first floor, onto the large and bright living area; a large living area wisely divided, without solution of continuity, between the kitchen and the dining room, a large lounge area in front of the fireplace with the beautiful Moltrasio stone floor, which the owners have managed to save with the renovation. The large space is well suited for dinners and aperitifs in pleasant company. On the same floor a guest bathroom and the laundry area. The first floor leads to the pleasant terrace / garden, shaded by the ancient wisteria.
A suspended staircase leads to the second floor dedicated to the bedrooms, which offers two large en-suite bedrooms and a guest area with two other double bedrooms and a dedicated bathroom.
The attic floor, with its spectacular exposed beam ceiling and large skylights, is an open space available.
The stone cellars, dating back to the 1600s, have been excellently recovered and emanate all the ancient history. The presence of large water tanks suggests that they were ancient workshops for the production of the famous “Pannilana” (wool processing), on which Torno, in the 13th century, founded its wealth.
The villa has been totally renovated and aimed at energy saving; it has underfloor heating, solar panels and coat.

The location of the property is perfect as all the services offered by the town are substantially “out of town”. The driveway access and the ability to park inside the house is an important aspect, generally difficult to find given the shape of the town.
From the property you can reach the lakeside via the pedestrian area characterized by narrow alleys or the imposing stone staircase that leads to the square of the Church of San Giovanni built in the 12th century in Gothic-Roman style, presumably above a previous building of worship.
Two excellent restaurants, a characteristic Bar / Trattoria and an elegant Winery invite you to spend pleasant moments with friends, often admiring splendid sunsets.
The shore of Lake Como that hosts Torno, elegant and characteristic at the same time, is in fact called the shore of the sunset.
Not far from the villa you can also enjoy a Gourmet dinner in the exclusive Berton al Lago Restaurant.
The Torno pier allows you to embark on small boats that reach the city and all the places overlooking the lake in a short distance.
The town of Torno lies on a hill that slides down to the lake and dominates the first basin of Lake Como, on the opposite shore Moltrasio and behind it Mount Boletto (1236 m.).

In the area traces of pre-Roman settlements have been found, as evidenced by the boulders avelli (stones excavated for burial uses) found in the woods near Piazzaga.
The writer and poet Hermann Hesse, sailing near the coasts of the country, was so fascinated that he wrote a splendid page on Torno, inserted in the book L’Azzura distanza.
To signal the path that leads from Torno to the hamlet of Montepiatto, in forty-five minutes of walking you reach the town and the church of Santa Elisabetta, in the woods a short distance away is the Pietra Pendula a true geological rarity.
