The Villa Viscontea is located on a small island in Lecco, where the branch of Lake Como becomes the Adda river.
Through history The Viscontea has been used as a defense fort and as a military garrison. Later it became a fisherman’s house. The building on the island was inhabited until 1956, and then rented out until 1961, when the last owners took possession of it.
The land size of the island is approximately 2 150 square meters, the main building has a size of 238 square meters and needs to be completely renovated. There are also small ancillary buildings in the garden for a size of about 25 square meters.
The island is located only 50 minutes from the international airports of Milan Malpensa and Milan Linate, and just 30 minutes from Bergamo airport. The city of Lecco has a railway station that connects it to Milan in just 45 minutes, and Switzerland is about an hour away.
* For greater transparency, the dimensions of the surfaces of the properties indicated on our site are based on the cadastral data retrieved from the Italian real estate register. This measurement includes all covered surfaces of the building, such as perimeter walls, internal partition walls, It’s important to note that the cadastral surface may differ from the actual surface area of the property, as certain areas may not be included, like non-habitable attics or cellars with a height of less than two and a half meters. However, during our checks, through one of our trusted surveyors we will carry out a precise measurement of the property.
