House , For sale
This magnificent and charming property, which provides around 1,000 m2 of living space, stands on an impeccably maintained plot of 5,300 m2 that overlooks the Lavaux region and Lake Geneva. There is a breath-taking view over the upper lake and the Lavaux vineyards.
The property was built in 1705 and totally renovated in 2016 using only the very finest materials.
The house is on 3 levels; the main 14-room section includes living and reception rooms with direct access to the terraces and swimming pools. The upper floors are home to five lovely bedrooms, each with its own en suite bathroom and dressing room.
This exceptional property also includes a professional standard cinema, an indoor swimming pool / jacuzzi with a counterflow system, a gym with sauna / Turkish bath, a vaulted wine cellar and a large garage for four cars.
The adjacent building, renovated in 2016, comprises three separate apartments (1 x 2-room and 2 x 3.5-room). It would be possible to reunite the apartments with the main building if required.
The property is situated in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Lavaux terraced vineyards with a superb panorama in a discreet natural setting. This is probably one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world.
The complex is around 10 minutes by car from Lausanne and Vevey and less than an hour from Geneva airport.
