On your way up to the second floor you will see a Havana style chest of drawers. In here is a small selection of games, CDs and DVDs for your enjoyment. On the walls is a small gallery of photos which showcase the ‘rustico’ as it was pre-renovation. Upon reaching the second floor you will see a WC on your left for your convenience.
The doorway to the right of the landing accesses the large open plan living space of the second floor, entering first into the fully equipped designer kitchen then the dining and lounge area. Here you will see that the entire length of this floor is dedicated to the pleasures of eating, drinking, socialising and relaxing whilst showcasing the most incredible views of the lake, both day and night.
The fully fitted designer kitchen includes a 5 ring gas hob, electric oven, Whirlpool dishwasher and large fridge freezer. The cream marble island creates the perfect breakfast bar area with four contemporary bar stools. The kitchen is equipped with crockery and glassware for eight to ten guests. Imagine sipping your morning espresso with a view of the Borromeo islands through the open French doors that lead onto the 15 metre balcony that runs the full length of the house…
Lounge/ Dining area
The dining area has a large Bengali style dining table with six contemporary suede chairs. If you throw a dinner party, make sure you dim the lights, throw open the French doors and let your guests marvel at the twinkling lights coming from the little hamlets set into the mountainside across the far side of the lake and on the Borromeo Islands. Night time at Casa Bellavista is just as romantic as when the sun shines onto the lake during the day. For close up views of the lake and beyond, why not take a look through our telescope…
The lounge area has a large soft leather four-seater corner sofa with chaise longue and matching two-seater sofa. In addition, there is a leather Moroccan pouffe you can perch on when playing board games around the stunning travertine marble coffee table. Again, two more sets of French doors open out onto the 15 metre long balcony.
The lounge/dining area has a high ceiling that creates a sense of light and space. For your entertainment, the lounge area has a flat screen TV with hundreds of channels, including the main UK channels, plus DVD player, and iPod docking station. Although we’re sure you’ll need nothing more than the view and each others’ company to keep yourselves entertained….
We also have a wireless internet connection for those of you who have had to bring work away with you.
