Chesterton Como will provide a personalised service to sellers for top-end properties in the area and specialise in property searches for buyers in Lake Como and further afield such as Lake Maggiore, Lake Orta, Lake Lugano and St Moritz in the Swiss Alps.
Cheryl Lorenzo-Penn, Director of Chesterton Como, comments, “I am delighted to be working with Chesterton, which has a burgeoning network of international offices.
“We specialise in finding unique properties with a particular feature, be it part of a historic villa or a typical house with a unique lake view. We also market new developments with limited units of high quality only.
“We work for both buyers and sellers, we often have buyers requesting a search service – similar to what is offered by buying agents in London.”
“Lake Como is an enchanting area with timeless appeal. The landscape is not marred by heavy construction and the vicinity to Milan International airport makes it easily accessible to the whole of Europe.”
“In general, a property bought here will be a lifetime investment, as prices of quality properties remain relatively constant, appreciating over the years. Italian property prices have not been hit as hard as in the rest of Europe, partly due to stricter Italian bank lending, LTV’s rarely exceed 80%.”
Robert Bartlett, CEO of Chesterton Global, adds, “We are very pleased to be launching our third European office in such a magnificent location. Lake Como is a great locality and one that has appealed to many people through the ages – from Winston Churchill to Queen Elizabeth and Wordsworth to Verdi – and we see great potential in the market.”
Chesterton’s other international offices are located in Saint Tropez, Gibraltar, Singapore and Australia.
