Located just 500 metres from the lake front and 800 metres from all amenities we offer for sale this extremely spacious 3 bedroom semi-detached house with lovely lake views set on 5 levels in the San Gregoria area of Dongo, some 13km north of Menaggio and 80 minutes from Milan airports. The property provides about 280m2 of accommodation across 5 levels. The basement, with independent entrance which contains a storage room and cellar is currently only connected externally to the rest of the property. The ground floor has an entrance both front and back and leads into a kitchen/dining room which needs renovation but features an antique fireplace and cotto flooring and a small service bathroom. Internal stairs lead to the first floor with master bedroom with its own private bathroom, a second bedroom both of which exit onto a balcony of some 9m2 with panoramic and lake views and a storage room. The second floor has a large living area with open fireplace, and separate kitchen, both of which have direct access to the large balcony on this floor of some 9m2, and another bathroom. The third floor hosts a further large bedroom, large bathroom and 2 further rooms. The last 2 levels are heated by methane gas and last renovated at the end of 1996, whilst the first floor was renovated in the mid 80’s. Half of the ground floor was also renovated in the mid 80’s, whilst the rest dates back over 60 years. This is an interesting house, which with some work could create a very spacious property, with super lake views, within easy reach of the lake and all amenities, and ideal for personal use or even to provide rental income. Excellent value.
Casa Travella was founded in 1987 when Linda & Pietro Travella saw an opportunity to offer Italian property for sale. At this time there were very few companies that offered any property for sale in Italy. Now years later read some of their story.
The company is fronted by Linda Travella and Casa Travella started selling property on Lake Como, where Pietro was born and Linda has worked and lived. The company were able to offer advice on numerous properties and ongoing help with all aspects of the buying process. If a client wants to restore a property, then Casa Travella can source tradesmen and professionals in the area and help with every aspect of the transaction.
When the BBC were looking for someone to speak on BBC Breakfast News about European property Linda was chosen to appear live on the programme. Other TV and radio programmes followed including Radio 5 Live, and ‘I want that House’ with Mark Simpkins, where Linda appeared in 6 episodes, the last one being a live programme from Florida, where an Italian apartment was given away as a prize. Linda appeared for RTE, Irish TV and for Channel 4‘s ‘A Place in the Sun’, where she accompanied Amanda Lamb along the shores of Lake Como by boat, to show her some of the stunning villas, including the one owned by George Clooney.
The Casa Travella team are always pleased to help when clients want to buy or sell a property in Italy. The office is multilingual with English, Italian and Spanish being spoken.
Linda says: ‘I feel proud that we can offer property for sale in many areas of Italy and we are able to give clients independent and professional advice on areas and types of property to suit their budget and needs.’
The Casa Travella team look forward to helping you buy or sell your Italian home.
