This 16th-century mansion, with over 1,500 sq. m. of space, is located on the shores of Lake Iseo, at the foot of the Alps, directly facing Monte Isola. It is surrounded by a 2.1-hectare botanical park. The villa features 9 bedrooms with the possibility of expansion and offers impressive frescoed halls, large windows, and direct views of the lake. The 2.1-hectare botanical garden, created by the biologist Fenaroli, grows unique and exotic plants, including experiments with kiwi cultivation in Italy.

The house with a 1,185 sq. m. interior dates back to the mid-16th century and spans three floors. While it currently requires some restoration and system updates, the villa boasts manorial features such as high frescoed ceilings, stone fireplaces, and large windows providing spectacular views of Lake Iseo. The ground floor consists of three beautiful reception halls with an outdoor veranda, a kitchen with a pantry, and a bathroom. On the first floor is a living room, two studies, a library with a reading room, five bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a stunning veranda with a terrace overlooking the lake on one side and the garden on the other.

The property is surrounded by a wall enclosing a paved and graveled apron at the front. A true marvel awaits on the opposite side of the building—a stunning 2.1-hectare botanical garden with a magical natural spring feeding a network of streams. The park is laid out on a slope descending towards the lake and features stone walls, paved walkways, paths, and breathtaking cliffs with waterfalls. Designed by the botanist and agronomist Luigi Fenaroli, the park is a unique testimony to his studies, with unique plants not found anywhere esle in Lombardy, including bamboo, camphor, giant redwoods, and ginkgo biloba.

The villa is located on the shores of Lake Iseo in Lombardy, facing Monte Isola and the Alps. Nearby towns with civic amenities include Sarnico, Iseo, Bergamo, and Brescia. The area offers a wide range of cultural and recreational activities and is easily accessible from the airports in Bergamo, Milan, Verona, and Venice.
