Splendid renovated castle in the Vaud countryside
- 950 m2
This historic estate is located 50 minutes by car from Geneva international airport and 20 minutes from the centre of Lausanne, in an exceptionally peaceful and intimate environment set in 2.5 hectares of magnificent gardens.
The castle is in fact an impressive mansion with the distinctive feature of being almost square. Its original state dates from the 17th and 18th centuries. However, certain remains, including a square tower, are older, probably dating from the 16th century.
In 2000, the current owner had major renovation and conversion work carried out, using top-of-the-range materials to give the castle unprecedented comfort and elegance.
With over 950 m2 of living space, the castle has magnificent reception rooms (with wood panelling, fireplaces and parquet flooring), a professional kitchen, an office and a large family room. The upstairs night area comprises 4 en suite bedrooms with bathrooms and dressing rooms, as well as a vast duplex library. The attic has been converted into storage space.
The interior features an 18th-century stove, probably made of Yverdon faience, a fireplace whose mantle is supported by an angular column, a magnificent balustrade whose motifs were certainly inspired by Geneva's wrought-iron craftsmen, a magnificent staircase built to the golden rule and Jura stone paving.
Elegance and charm are the defining features of this unique estate.
