Villa Peduzzi is a stunning liberty-style villa that sits on a stunning 881 metres above Lake Como, offering simply astonishing views of the lake and surrounding mountains. Built-in 1909 and fully restored to exceptional standards, with timeless elegance by London-based Italian architect Andrea Meirana, while the interiors have been tastefully designed by Singapore-based interior designer, Albano Daminato. The villa offers 1,231 sqm of living space, including nine double bedrooms, seven ensuites, a drawing room, living room, dining room, kitchen, study, media room, bar, two roof terraces, a yoga/wellness room, pool house, and an entertainment area. With no immediate neighbors and located within 4 minutes from the cable car station, Villa Peduzzi is an oasis of calm and serenity that commands one of the finest views in Europe.
The villa sits on a sprawling 4.5-acre alpine garden and has beautiful terraces all around the main house leading to the infinity pool and a standalone pool house. The villa was restored to its original 1900 grandeur, incorporating modern facilities with and overall design that was intended to emphasize the unique arrangement between the magnificent heritage and the beauty of nature, executed in a subtle, elegant, and harmonious way, preserving the historic integrity of Villa Peduzzi. Handcrafted wood, marble, and fabric elements add style and luxury to the core of Villa Peduzzi, which is a fine example of Art Nouveau architecture seamlessly integrated with modern facilities.
The redesign included raising the roof to create additional space for two breathtaking terraces overlooking the picturesque lake. The addition of newly designed balconies elegantly balances the proportions of the Villa and provides an enhanced perspective from below, imbuing the space with a sense of grace and lightness. A daring excavation beneath the building has resulted in the creation of a brand-new gym space, while the swimming pool and pool house have been thoughtfully designed to integrate seamlessly with the natural landscape, creating an immersive experience where the water and sky blend seamlessly with the indoor and outdoor spaces. The views from Villa Peduzzi are nothing short of spectacular, offering a panoramic combination of blue lake waters and verdant mountains. The swimming pool and the pool house were carefully designed to fit within the landscape, creating a breathtaking experience of the location where the water and the sky permeate its indoor and outdoor space.
