Luxury Portfolio: A modern penthouse on the northern shore of lake Lugano
Switzerland, for all its natural beauty, is not typically associated with palm tree-lined streets. Benefitting from a sub-tropical climate and roughly 300 days of sunshine annually, Ticino, an Italian-speaking region in the south of the country, is anything but typical. While basking in the crystalline waters of Lake Lugano, one can take in the striking views of Monte San Salvatore and the Swiss Alps that serve as the backdrop for the region’s largest city, Lugano.
It’s here, among an abundance of rich vegetation with bamboo and camellia flowers, that we found a Mediterranean style penthouse of the highest degree. Ideally located in the center of Europe, both the Mediterranean Sea and world-class Alpine ski resorts can be reached within a two-hour drive while the Milan International airports are less than an hour away.
The elegant detail of this sumptuous penthouse makes it a noticeable property in the neighborhood commonly known as “Lugano’s best.” With no through traffic, large historic properties with lavish parks and famous ownership, the neighborhood is an advantageous choice for those looking for a peaceful and private environment. Conveniently close to the historical streets of Lugano, including Via Nassa, where exquisite boutiques and delightful cafés and restaurants with international fare line the lakeshore.
