Building , For sale
This 16-room property with 583 m2 of living space is ideally located on a cobbled street in the centre of the old town of Vevey. The building was built around 1750. A complete renovation completed in 2015 combines historical charm and modern comfort.
The property is composed of 2 buildings (south and north), connected by footbridges. It consists of 3 individual apartments which are currently used as a single-family home. It offers the future owner the possibility to live in the whole property, to rent a part of it or to rent the whole. The buildings also house a glazed commercial area at pedestrian street level, a large workshop/storage area and 2 private paved courtyards. These create an oasis of calm. They are overlooked by the bedrooms, thus isolating them from the noise of the old town.
The complete renovation of the buildings included modifications such as, replacement of the roof, floors, wiring (RJ45 throughout for optional connectivity) and plumbing including silent pipes used for maximum noise suppression. It also included the creation of additional floor space; the installation of a custom elevator and the enlargement of windows to ensure maximum light in keeping with the historic charm. Indirect lighting and neutral floor and wall colours allow for a flexible layout. All materials were carefully selected by an interior designer, including the lift, the numerous built-in cupboards, the household appliances, the fittings for the bathrooms and the top-of-the-range Italian kitchens, and the floors in oak, waxed concrete or resin.
The building is ideally located in the historic city centre of Vevey with its many shops, restaurants and cultural events. It is 50 meters from the lake in a popular pedestrian street. The train station is a 7 minute walk away. There are direct lines to Geneva and its airport.
Several international schools are located nearby. The A9 motorway is only 6 minutes away by car, allowing easy access to the many surrounding ski resorts and mountain attractions such as Villars, Verbier or Crans-Montana.
