We offer for sale in Ghiffa the exclusive 19th century period villa "Villa Ada Troubetzkoy" with a breathtaking view of Lake Maggiore, only 100 metres from the lakeshore.
This elegant period villa in Ghiffa stands in an exclusive location just a few metres from the lake and surrounded by the greenery of its marvellous botanical garden of about 23,000 square metres, rich in exotic and rare plants, including the first Pinus Strobus to arrive in Italy from America.
The villa was built in 1866 by the Russian prince Pyotr Troubetzkoy and today, thanks to a careful renovation that took place in 2016, it is in excellent condition, with fine finishes, preserving original details and boasting a marked attention to energy saving. In fact, the villa has been equipped with triple glazing, a photovoltaic system and a panel heating system.
