Karina villa on Lake Como

As you enter the villa grounds, you pass the 4 person hot tub, set in a corner of the well maintained garden where you can relax overlooking the attractive blue waters of Lake Como. Impressive stone steps lead up to the 70 sq meter terrace, which runs along the entire front of the villa. The terrace has vaulted ceilings and terrific lake views. The large dining table offers ample opportunity for enjoyable outdoor dining.

The main floor of Karina is air conditioned and you enter it from the terrace through large French doors. Here you find the office/library, which was once the original entrance hall. The office is well equipped with a television, laptop, printer and Skype telephone. The villa also has wireless (WIFI) Internet.

Turning left in the marble hallway, you come to the large living and dining room. This room is elegant in design and inviting with its overstuffed sofas and armchairs. The windows run the full length of the room offering nice light and beautiful views of the lake and surrounding mountains. There is direct access to the terrace from this room which also has wood floors with underfloor heating, Venetian stucco walls, Murano chandeliers and air conditioning.

There is also a large flat screen TV with satellite channels and a Bose surround sound audio system with speakers. The formal circular glass dining table can comfortably seat up to eight people.

The kitchen is located off of the living/dining room and is a well equipped designer kitchen. It features granite counter tops, newly updated appliances, a double oven, stove, microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator with freezer. There is also a table for less formal dining.

Back along the hallway on the opposite side of the main entrance is the master bedroom suite. It has access to the garden through two French doors and is stylish with a queen designer bed, armchair and ottoman, silk tapestries and hand painted ceilings. Next to the master suite are two full-sized bathrooms. One is masculine and contemporary with a Teuco power shower and the other more feminine and refined with a Teuco ultrasonic Jacuzzi tub.

The lower ground garden level is reached externally with access from the garden. This level is comfortable and nicely appointed but more modest than the main floor. It does not have air conditioning. The garden level has a pleasant twin bedded room (beds cannot be joined) that has access to the terrace. This room has a modern feel yet is still in keeping with the classical surroundings. There is a bathroom with shower located next to this room.

Down the hall is a fitness room with large plasma TV. The room is private and can accommodate two additional guests on a double sofa bed. Next to the fitness room is a well equipped laundry room with washing machine, dryer, iron and ironing board.
