Luxurious apartment in restored 16th century convent Garda Homes are pleased to bring to the market a spacious, luxurious two bedroom apartment in a restored 16th Century convent in the Hills above Salo, overlooking Lake Garda, Italy.

Il Palazzo is situated in a sought after location offering unparalleled views of Lake Garda from its elevated position. Fully restored in 2004 to a very high standard, it offers over 1400 square foot of living accommodation and boasts solid oak flooring throughout. The living room is an unusually large size with a feature open fire place and two sets of French window doors that open on to a private terrace, ideal for alfresco dining while taking in the lake views. There is also an open-plan study area with broadband connection in place, and the terrace area comes complete with original, centuries-old marble and wrought iron adding a character feel. With one double bedroom with ensuite bathroom and one single bedroom, both complemented by custom fitted wardrobes, very large living room, a shower room, laundry room and an Italian designer kitchen with all mod cons, this apartment is ideal as a formal home or holiday/investment home.

The apartment comes with four private car parking spaces in the residence's car park, a large, recently restored communal swimming pool and exquisite landscaped gardens gently tiered and offering panoramic views.

Sarah Ferrara, Managing Director of Garda Homes says, “Il Palazzo is a superb property offering generous living accommodation and is ideally priced. Potential buyers also benefit from the fact that this is a private sale, so there is no agency commission to pay and only very low purchase taxes due. With so many flights to the region now available by a host of carriers to numerous airports this would make a first class buy-to-let property commanding up to £995 per week in rental during the high season.”

Il Palazzo comes to the market at just £346,700 and, unlike most Italian properties, is sold complete with designer kitchen and fitted wardrobes.

For more information on investing into the Lake Garda property market, whether as a holiday home or an ongoing investment opportunity, then should be your first point of call. They offer the broadest range of properties from dozens of different estate agents within the region and can advise on the best form of finance and potential buy-to-let properties.
