Price on request
DescriptionThe Villa Kenwin was built in 1931 by the Hungarian architect Alexander Ferenczy for English owners. It was inhabited until the 1980s, before being abandoned for nearly a decade. The Kenwin villa will be taken over by the architect Giovanni Pezzoli who will ensure a complete renovation in the strictest rules of art. Nestled on a plot of just over 5'000 sqm, facing the lake, the imposing building offers a floor area of about 750 sqm on 4 levels. The Kenwin villa is designed and fitted out both as a place to live and as a place for exhibitions, receptions or work, in the purest respect of the Bauhaus concept. Bahaus buildings are often destined for social housing and give pride of place to communal rather than individual spaces. The Kenwin villa under the style of this concept, offers rectilinear facades with large windows providing incredible
luminosity. The ground floor is a plateau, almost in one piece, with an impressive double height ceiling. On the other hand, the upper floor is composed of 6 bedrooms, some of them of modest size, and 3 bathrooms. The flat roof provides an unparalleled display area as well as a private roof terrace with a breathtaking view of the lake and the Alps. The raw materials, the minimalist design typical of the Bauhaus school and the originality of the distribution leave the layman with a blurred feeling between sobriety and extravagance. Passionate, the current owner managed to carry out a very precise renovation of the place, integrating some typical elements of the Bauhaus movement, in particular the lighting fixtures This atypical property, classified by the historical monuments will delight a clientele of connoisseurs.
