Situated on the tranquil shores of the Italian lakes, with a stunning backdrop of mountains and cypress-fringed water, we created this stunning villa as a holiday home for one of our long-standing clients.
Responsible not only for the architectural interior design, but also the development management of the project, our brief was to lead and manage the thoughtful transformation of this derelict property, returning The Lakehouse to its former glory.
From blast-proof windows and sourcing marine-grade materials through to obtaining consents to build a basement level and a new road, this project was undoubtedly complex. Yet with all its undiscovered beauty, we knew it could be transformed into the ultimate year-round holiday home.
Comprised of six ensuite bedrooms over three expansive floors, and an additional guardhouse, this holiday home has been thoughtfully designed to cater for year-round use. From the chalet-style bunk bed room and inviting snug with a roaring fire to the swimming pool surrounded by Mediterranean inspired landscaped gardens, this home is equally as appealing for a ski break as it is a summer getaway.
Accents of midnight blue and seafoam reflect & mirror the ever-changing surface of the lake, and full-height windows showcase the uninterrupted views to stunning effect, making The Lakehouse what the locals call ‘La più bella casa sul lago’ – the most beautiful home on the lake.
