Villa Camponovo was designed by an engineer called Mr. Pediconi and was built in 1944 in the typical style used for all the villas in Brunate between the 19th and 20th centuries.
The villa is surrounded by an 8,000 sq/m garden on various levels and offers lots of privacy and peace and quiet. There is a wonderful view over the surrounding land from the garden and the villa.
The mezzanine floor has an impressive entrance hall with stuccoes and a Venetian floor.
A stately staircase lit by coloured glass leads to the first floor. The rooms are all very large; halls and box rooms, living rooms and bedrooms, many of which have stucco ceilings.
The two main floors have two stately halls, a living room, a dining room, a studio, a kitchen and an ironing room, 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
On the second floor there is the attic, which can be converted into more rooms, and a tower with two small bedrooms and a bathroom.
The tower rises two floors above the villa roof and ends up as a loggia with a wonderful view all around.
The ground floor has a number of multi-purpose rooms and bathrooms; there is also a cellar.
There is a garage next to the villa on the side next to the road.
The property needs renovating, but it is a real jewel that deserves bringing back to its original splendour.
