Nothing really beats a gorgeous waterfront home with daily morning breezes and awe-inspiring views. Villa Iseo is one such gem, situated on the shore of Lake Iseo in Sulzano, Italy. It is surrounded by the most wonderful landscapes, with nearby mountains and vast vineyards.

The lake’s swimming area is only steps away, and there is a relaxing sense of privacy and seclusion on the property, one that cannot be experience in any busy metropolis. You don’t have to worry about isolation, though, because the largest lake town can be reached in only minutes by car, and if you want to visit the big cities, both Verona and Milan are just an hour’s drive away each.

The villa boasts 5,059 square feet of luxuriously appointed spaces, including three large bedrooms and four bathrooms. The entrance leads directly into the beautifully-furnished living area, which acts like the home’s core, from where all other main spaces can be accessed: the kitchen, the bedrooms, the veranda and swimming pool, and also the recreational area in the basement.

All ground-level rooms enjoy easy access to the outside. These include the master bedroom with its loft wardrobe, two other double bedrooms, and the kitchen. The upper floor is used as an attic, but it flaunts beautiful finishes throughout. The basement level enjoys plenty natural light thanks to a clever use of glazing for both windows and walls. There is a secondary living space in the basement, but this area is also used as a work-out and entertainment zone. Several technical rooms and a double garage are also part of the floor plan.

Terraces, porticoes, a nice garden, a sundeck, and a swimming pool ensure various opportunities for enjoying the outdoors in any season. Another noteworthy quality of the villa is the fact that it was developed with energy efficiency in mind, featuring a solar thermal energy system and large photovoltaic panels.
