Le Landeron

- Photos and additional documents available on request -

It was during the reconstruction of the village of Le Landeron, after the destruction of the ancient fortified town of Nugerol, that the magnificent building we're offering for sale today was built. The year was 1338, and the house still stands proudly to the south-west of the historic town of Le Landeron, a village with an unusual almond-shaped layout opening onto a central avenue planted with trees.

Although it has not forgotten its rich history, today's village has evolved considerably and now boasts a population of around 4,700. With a shopping center, a school (covering all cycles of compulsory education), an after-school care facility, a SBB train station and a doctor's surgery, the village offers all the necessary amenities.

At the time, the residence played a defensive role, and its construction technique displays many typical medieval historical features, such as a fabulous polygonal turret housing a spiral staircase, imposing buttresses, molded doors and an impressive 4-sided roof. These age-old features have withstood the test of time, and remain well in place thanks to the low number of interventions carried out on the façade. They give the house all its majesty and make it a unique object that is extremely rare on the market.

The construction highlights two distinct volumes erected on two respective plots of land, both of which are listed in category 1 of the cantonal architectural heritage for the historical interest they represent.

The building comprises a 240m² owner's apartment, with generous volumes on its 3 levels. It still features late medieval elements such as two functional hearths and a very fine exposed beam. Although it could do with some updating, the discerning eye will undoubtedly recognize its great potential.

The west wing, which is currently undeveloped and also accessible from the owner's residence, has a large surface area that could be converted into an independent dwelling thanks to a separate entrance.

The rest of the building gives access to 6 other apartments, ranging from studios to 3-bedrooms, spread over 3 floors. They are all rented out, providing an attractive rental income for future owners.
