On the doorstep of the idyllic town of Menaggio, Lombardy, Italy, nestled amidst lush green woods, the murmur of a nearby river adding to the serene atmosphere, is a quaint 3-bedroom detached house. A house that gives you a chance to break away from the trappings of daily life and experience tranquility at its best.

The recently refurbished house sits in a fairytale-like location that you can only dream of. It is accessible via a 15-minute picturesque walk from the public parking space of Grandola, a hamlet situated right above the coveted resort town of Menaggio. If you fancy, you can also reach the house by a motorcycle or a small car, as access to the road is restricted to residents only.

The moment you set foot on this property, crossing the old stony bridge, you will feel a sense of coming home. A comforting, cozy feeling that never leaves you.

The house's garden is blessed with two capacious cellars, with potential for one being remodeled into an extra bedroom, a separate guest area, or even a summer kitchen - the possibilities are limited only by your imagination.

The house's ground floor is reachable via an intimate internal staircase. The official main entrance of the house is situated at the back. This level comprises a kitchen area with a dining table and a perfectly-functional original fireplace. The ingenious owners have carved out a comfortable laundry area and a storage room behind the kitchen for maximum space utilization.

Opposite the kitchen is the living room, offering a delightful view of the gardens and the river. Currently, the pellet stove and the fireplace are the only sources of heating in the house.

The beautifully decorated, unique stone staircase leads to the first floor, which houses the first bedroom that comes fitted with an en-suite bathroom and wooden floors and a second double bedroom with views of the bridge. A charming view of the back path leading up to the wood can be enjoyed from the desk in the second bedroom.

Upstairs, the attic adds an extra layer of charm to the house with its real wooden floors, exposed beams, and natural walls, providing an intriguing and inviting atmosphere. Tiny windows peppered around let in subtle rays of sun, evoking nostalgia for childhood days spent playing in such spaces full of mystic treasures and secrets. This capacious open space currently doubles as a bedroom and a studio.

The house is in excellent condition and ready to be inhabited, with the roof and facacdes having undergone a complete renovation not too long ago and all the windows boast double glazing for added insulation.

The property is surrounded by a 100 square meter private garden and an additional 50 square meter of wooded land forms part of the property at the back.

The house will be delivered partially furnished, giving you the free reign to bring your personal touch to your new home.

This secluded spot offers a chance for you to retreat and escape from reality, yet be just a few minutes away from Menaggio, a famed resort town that is set on the western shore of Lake Como. Menaggio itself is a touristic and lively place with a plethora of amenities, including a beautiful beach and several intriguing historical and cultural sites.

Amidst the hubbub is a delightful, tree-lined promenade, not to mention the many inviting restaurants, cafes, and shops. This lakeside town is ripe for exploring, taking in the sight of lake views, or embarking on a peaceful walk along the lake.

Menaggio sits against the backdrop of the Italian Alps and has a distinctly alpine climate, with long, hot summers that are perfect for enjoying Lake Como and its surroundings, and cold winters that offer a quiet, serene beauty.

The way this house effortlessly balances the tranquility of its location with the vivacity of Menaggio's city life is truly enchanting. It would be a shame to miss an opportunity to create a lifetime of memories here, running barefoot along the garden's edge and river, soaking up the tranquil ambiance of this fairy tale property.
