Villa Aura is an elegant luxury property with a private pool and park. This majestic manor house is in a privileged position in Como, on a hill overlooking the city, and surrounded by 25,000 square meters of private land.
Designed and built in the 1960s by the famous Architect Mantegazza, Villa Aura covers 650 walkable square meters developing on two levels. This area must be added to the 300 square meters of external porticoes, creating a residential and luxurious microcosm where indoor and outdoor spaces coexist harmoniously.
The villa’s ground floor features impressive four-meter ceilings and opens onto the foyer, then extends into the grand living room with a granite fireplace. The living area directly accesses the outdoor terrace and the nearby swimming pool. On the same level there are also two dining rooms, an elegant private study, a bathroom and the area of the house reserved for the staff, which includes the spacious kitchen, two bedrooms, a bathroom, the boiler room and the laundry room. What characterizes all the rooms on the ground floor is the massive penetration of air and natural light, ensured by the numerous French windows overlooking the porches and the private garden, and the incredible panoramic view of the lake and the Como Cathedral.
An imposing internal staircase covered in granite connects the ground floor to the first floor, which leads to the sleeping area of the property. On this level is the master suite, again with ceilings over four meters high, and featuring a foyer, a master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and direct access to the terrace overlooking the Duomo and the lake. The large and comfortable wardrobe is particularly noteworthy, as it is characterized by access to the nearby service room and a second terrace. The first floor also features a second master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and private hallway, two further bathrooms and five more bedrooms. One of these bedrooms stands out for the presence of an external portico, while another showcases an exclusive view of Lake Como.
Finally, as for the basement, we find a large garage, the pool technical room and three additional parking spaces, all covered.
The villa synthesizes architectural elegance, comfort and attention to detail. The exquisite Italian style that permeates the spaces is enhanced by the careful selection of materials used for the fine interior finishes: Cotto tiles for the floors in the living area, precious Lombard Cotto tiles for the external porches, solid wood floorings for the bedrooms and the night area, refined Sicilian majolica tiles for the bathrooms. The property’s outdoor space has exclusive porticoes with stone arches, cobbled avenues with gneiss, and exquisite stone and granite details.
In a perfect fusion between past, present and future, Villa Aura stands out for its timeless charm and complete immersion in a natural landscape of astonishing beauty. An ideal housing solution for a demanding and super-selected clientele who wants to experience a new lifestyle concept in the highly sought-after Lake Como area.
