Loft penthouse for sale on Lake Maggiore in Ghiffa. The panoramic position overlooks with a beautiful view of the lake and the surrounding hills. The construction period dates back to the early 1900s, the structure was born from an industrial building of the time, converted into a residence. The complete renovation involved the entire structure, from the installation of the panoramic glass lift, to the systems, roof and terraces. There are the original cast iron columns, which testify to the past era. These materials were typically used in this type of construction. The cut of the windows is also reminiscent of the liberty style, but with double glazed windows, to ensure excellent protection from both heat and cold. The interior is characterized by the large open spaces of the living area, which overlooks a large terrace. This terrace can be considered as an extra room, since it is the most used area from spring to autumn. It is exposed to the south and has a pergola with shading fins.
