Inside a large private park, nestled on the Soiano hill, we offer this enchanting villa with generous indoor and outdoor areas, with a fascinating project of recovery and expansion of what already exists.
The location is extremely interesting as it offers due privacy, although it is close to services and to the most renowned touristic points of interest on Lake Garda.
DESCRIPTION OF THE PROPERTY
The villa is in an excellent state of maintenance and disposed on two levels with generous sizes.
On the ground floor, completely dedicated to the living area, there are the independent kitchen, directly connected to the spacious dining room, while a large atrium leads to the large living room, all enjoying the copious natural lightning and overlooking the garden and the private pool.
The floor is further completed by a bathroom and a useful utility room.
Upstairs, the four large bedrooms, elegantly served by two bathrooms, make the sleeping area able to meet all the needs of space for the family and its guests.
Particular mention should be made of the outdoor premises: a stretch of green wood of over 20.000 sqm adjacent to the villa is potentially acquirable and exploitable for the construction of an orchard, riding school or a private wellness path; instead, the villa already includes a large garden and a portion of green planted for 4.000 sqm and has a large pergola, swimming pool and solarium on the south-east side.
On the upper floor, on the other hand, an incredible livable corner terrace embraces in their full ampleness two sides – south and east – of the villa.
PROPERTY DESCRIPTION: THE RECOVERY PLAN
The recovery and renovation plan is certainly of a high architectural and building level, with a substantial expansion (about 10% of the total area of the villa) entirely designed to enrich the ground floor.
The redevelopment and redesign of both the internal and external spaces is based on compositional choices and layouts according to criteria for selecting and enhancing the place and the architecture. The architectural system is built on the geometries given by the encounter between the pre-existing fabric and the new traces that give back an architecture of contemporary impact capable of keeping intact the history and the original characteristics of the space. The choice of an organic architecture, of the relationship between man and his space and the space itself and nature, has guided all the design choices.
The right brightness in the different parts of the house is achieved through large windows, able to erase the boundaries between exterior and interior and making the nature the main decorative element.
On this principle of relationship with the intense nature the material and chromatic choices are also set. The finishing and furnishing colours will move within neutral and natural colour ranges, cream nuances, grey mud, and dove-grey form the background of essential furnishings in lines and materials. The materiality of all the components chosen will be highlighted for the naturalness of the material itself: glass, steel, stone and wood.
The stone used for the cladding is chosen according to the local tradition, Lombard and Bresciano in particular, for quality and colour, proposing warm and light shades of grey.
Also the external paving of the portico, of the terraces and of the alleys are provided in slabs of the same stone.
Wood, a rural reminiscence that characterizes local building, is taken up in a modern and innovative way in the project. The interior flooring will be made of wood planks with large dimensions and treated with natural oils or in any case with water-based satin varnishes.
PROPERTY DESCRIPTION: THE POST-RECOVERY
The ground floor, enlarged in the most southern part, renounces the halls and decommitments to fully exploit all the square footage. The kitchen, dining room and living room are thus enlarged and compacted to create more functional and enjoyable environments.
The living area, in particular, is designed to allow natural lighting until late in the evening, thanks to the large south-facing window, expertly oriented almost imperceptibly towards the west.
The large porch is further enlarged and embellished, further reducing the distance from the pool, as if to create a single line of wellbeing and enjoyment of the exterior, which seems integrated with the interior thanks to the large sliding windows at full height.
The external junction between the internal spaces and the garage, which incorporates the original utility room to obtain inside a functional cellar and laundry area, is now redesigned for the creation of a precious winter garden and for an improved functionality access to spaces, internal and external.
On the first floor, the reallocation of the spaces allows a greater usability of the sleeping area, also thanks to the construction of two further terraces in the northernmost part, thus ensuring exclusive access to outdoor appliances to all bedrooms.
In particular, thanks to the desire to give up a bedroom, the master one is redesigned to become a generous suite – with exclusive bathroom – enriched by direct access to a jacuzzi area. The latter is created by rethinking the corner niche of the terrace, setting it inside two windows with a direct view of the panorama and creating a double access reserved only for the suite.
The large terrace is, in this way, remodeled creating two distinct environments, with the east area of total relevance of the suite, while the south is expanded with a berceau and enriched by the presence of a dedicated terrace pool, to enjoy unique moments of outdoor relaxation.
