This is an absolutely stunning 4 bedroom penthouse apartment in the Golfo Gabella residence in Maccagno on the shores of Lake Maggiore. Furnished to an extremely high standard with obvious designer touches, it's a stunning base to spend any holiday in Italy. Outside guests enjoy use of a communal pool and jacuzzi and are within walking distance of the lakeside beaches, restaurants, shops, cafes and watersports hire.
The apartment is on the third floor of the building and boasts an enormous terrace enjoying views of the lake. This enjoys 360 degree views with the lake to the front and mountains to the rear. Inside, the apartment is just as spacious. There is a well equipped kitchen with built in ovens, microwave, hob, dishwasher, coffee machine, toaster and kettle. A central island doubles up as a fantastic breakfast bar area with 4 bar stools whilst an adjacent circular table seats another four and provides an alternative seating area for younger children or the more elderly. There is also a separate laundry room with washing machine behind the kitchen. On the other side the kitchen moves through to a lovely open plan living and dining area. A large corner sofa is arranged around a TV whilst a dining table is positioned to make the most of the floor to ceiling windows so you can dine whilst making the most of the phenomenal lake views. Doors lead out from these living areas to the terrace. In total there are four bedrooms. The master bedroom suite is extremely spacious with kingsize bed and an adjacent living area with chaise longue enjoying stunning lake views thanks to the floor to ceiling windows and glass roof. It also boasts a good sized ensuite bathroom. There is also another double bedroom as well as two smaller single bedrooms, ideal for children. Overall the interior decor is stunning.... contemporary yet warm and welcoming with clever use of colour and lighting to add ambience to the room. The property enjoys direct lift access and is therefore a great option for wheelchair users.
Maccagno is a popular lakeside town boasting a number of restaurants, bars and cafes all within walking distance of the apartment. The nearest restaurant is on site whilst the second closest is just a few metres in the other direction. There is also a helpful tourist information office within the town if you need any information about what to see and do in the area. It is situated just across from a lakeside beach area which is popular with the locals. The lake is wonderful to swim in. Guests can also walk to the boat stop where you can catch a boat to all the other towns and villages on the lake. Tennis courts and water sports hire are also within walking distance.

This is a truly stunning property. It's not hard to see why it falls into our luxury collection. So beautifully styled and with a phenomenally large terrace with incredible lake views, this penthouse ticks all the boxes!
