We are pleased to offer totally renovated 2 bedroom 2 bathroom stone built village house with lake view in the hamlet of Peglio, just a few metres from a trattoria, some 5km inland from the lake and amenities at Gravedona, 20km north of Menaggio and 90 minutes from Milan airports. The renovated house provides about 195m2 of accommodation over 3 floors. A small courtyard leads to the ground floor of about 60m2 with 3 ‘cantine’ with arched ceilings where you can create a lovely taverna. There is a terrace on the first floor which leads to the main entrance and a large living room with corner kitchen, bathroom with shower and washing machine attachments for a total of some 50m2. Moving on to the second floor of some 85m2 featuring exposed beam ceilings you find a second kitchen, with windows facing the hamlet, large lounge leading onto a terrace of some 10m2 with lovely lake and mountain views, the second bathroom and a large sleeping area with possibility to create 2 bedrooms. The village house has been completely renovated including PVC double glazing, insulated roof, external stone as well as some internal stone features, new plumbing including heating pipes, although a new boiler would have to be installed by the purchaser either as a pellet boiler or split electric/air conditioning. The property is being sold partly furnished, with all newly fitted kitchen units and enjoys lovely lake views from the top floor. The house is in the centre of the small hamlet with restaurant within easy walking distance, has car access for loading and unloading with public parking just 50 metres away. There is also the possibility to purchase a room of some 30m2 which is in need of renovation and joins the property on the first floor for an extra 5,000 Euros. An excellent investment, within easy reach of the lake and ideal for personal use or even to provide rental income.
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.
