Luxury apartment finished with premium materials and located on the third floor of the exclusive Grand Palace residence in the historic centre of Lugano. Lying on Lugano's lakefront, the Grand Palace is an iconic building that has played a leading role in the city's history. Renovation work has retained the original façades on the two lake-facing sides, while the building has been completely rebuilt inside for every modern comfort and maximum flexibility in terms of space, installations and high-end finishes. This prime location not only provides a panoramic view and plenty of sunlight throughout the day, but also the convenience of being in the historic centre with amenities easily accessible on foot. What's more, the Lugano Sud motorway exit is less than five minutes' drive away, the train station is 800 metres away and the funicular just a short walk from the building. Lugano-Agno airport lies 10 km away and Milan Malpensa 70 km away. Steeped in history, Lugano's Grand Palace offers a rare opportunity to purchase an historic lakefront property in the very heart of the city. The city of Lugano has also played its part in showcasing this haven of peace and quiet by expanding the flower-lined promenade in front of the building, investing in the renovation of the Santa Maria degli Angeli church and its cloisters, as well as in the floral grounds surrounding the property. Next to the residence, there is a cultural centre including a museum and theatre.
