Villa Mosca Bianca | Lake Maggiore, Italy
Offered by Christie’s International Real Estate
A house like no other, Villa Mosca Bianca's unique design offers residents and guests a haven of tranquility and an unparalleled connection to nature.
Villa Mosca Bianca is a magnificent lake house on the shores of Italy's Lago Maggiore.
The creative vision of Design Haus Liberty, the villa's sleek contemporary architecture and breathtaking views have been featured in several architectural journals.
Set within a pine forest, the villa's terraced gardens were carefully carved to capture 180-degree views of the lake, the mountains, and the sunset.
The villa's lakefront setting is beautiful, exclusive, and strategically located: Milan Malpensa international airport is just 45 km and Milan city center—Italy's business and fashion capital—is 80 km. The Swiss border is within an hour's drive.
Lesa is a lovely little town on the shores of Lake Maggiore, halfway between Stresa and Arona. It is a placid place with beautiful views and a relaxing atmosphere. The town and surrounding area are full of extravagant villas and palazzi, with gardens and distinctive architecture, demonstrating that Lago Maggiore was populated by noble families, and is still a gateway for the wealthy. Stresa and Lesa have long attracted writers and intellectuals, and here in Lesa is a museum dedicated to Alessandro Manzoni, a poet and novelist, best known for I Promessi Sposi (The Bethrothed).Lesa is on a spur in the lake providing it with nice little beaches and lovely views. Across the lake are Ispra and Ranco, two shorefront towns that are in the region of Lombardy.
Villa Mosca Bianca embraces its natural landscape, blending eco-friendly design with cutting-edge technologies and resort-worthy amenities for the ultimate lakefront lifestyle.
The internal living spaces connect to a series of terraces and the surrounding landscape beyond.
The villa‘s undulating perimeter and projecting, finger-like terraces have been designed to facilitate a relaxed lifestyle and encourage activities such as yoga, swimming, gardening, reading, and alfresco dining. A vegetable garden offers an abundance of organic produce.
The villa develops on three floors. The ground floor with the living room, kitchen, open study, two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a guest bathroom, ancillary rooms and terraces; the first floor with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, terraces and technical room. The main orientation of the villa is towards the lake and south.
In the basement are spacious storage areas and a play room with bathroom.
The garden, designed by a landscape architect, reflects beautiful vegetation.
Cars can be conveniently parked in the ground level garage and outdoor spaces.
Eco friendly architecture
At its core is a garden atrium with a vast skylight that floods the interiors with natural light and visually connects the surrounding rooms and central staircase.
The atrium also serves as a passive air and rainwater collection system for the villa.
Other sustainable features include heat pumps and solar panels, which produce 60 percent of the home's energy.
