As one of the most beautiful, timeless and unspoilt corners of Italy, Lake Como has always been a popular retreat for aristocrats, celebrities and wealthy individuals. Tania Jacobs takes a tour of the latest properties on offer from Lakeside Real Estate

Located in the foothills of the Alps, with its dramatic scenery and sparkling crystal blue water, exuding elegance, simplicity and tranquillity, Lake Como effortlessly blends quaint historic dwellings with stylish contemporary homes, which stand gracefully side-by-side along the water’s edge.

The price point for a stunning waterfront property ranges from €1.5 to over €40 million. Whilst a period villa with a boat house and gardens can be purchased for between €3 million and €8 million, a modern luxury villa can exceed an asking price of €15 million and contemporary apartments along the water’s edge, with 2 bedrooms tend to fetch around €750,000

When discussing high-end waterfront retreats on Lake Como, it’s impossible not to mention the magnificent Villa Breakwater, the iconic industrial boatyard dating back to 1922, which has been respectfully renovated. Whilst the original identity has been maintained, the villa has evolved into a stunning contemporary masterpiece. With state-of-the-art lines, dramatic views and enviable position, this villa is truly one-of-a-kind. Although it’s not presently for sale, the villa is an outstanding source of inspiration for clients envisioning their dream home on the lake.

Lake Como is also witnessing significant demand for waterfront hotels, with average build prices of between €20 and €60 million. When it comes to investing in this high-end property market, Sara Zanotti and her team are experts at combining luxury living with the quintessential Italian lifestyle, so it’s unsurprising that an increasing number of buyers are relying on award-winning real estate agents; Lakeside Real Estate.
