Luxury apartment in the historic National building

Description

This stunning apartment is located in the prestigious, historic National building in the heart of Montreux.

The former Hôtel le National enjoys an exceptional location just a stone’s throw from Lake Geneva, close to the city centre, shops, schools and the railway station. Nestled in landscaped grounds overlooking the lake, the National residential complex guarantees unobstructed views over some of Switzerland’s most spectacular scenery. It also offers a range of amenities, including a 350 m² private spa with indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi, sundeck and fitness room.

Comprising 6.5 rooms, this magnificent apartment is set amid idyllic surroundings with a living area of 161 m². It offers generous spaces and features a bright living room with stunning views over Lake Geneva and the mountains.

The owners have enhanced the property without detracting from its charm. With refined and elegant taste, they have blended genres and materials to give this apartment an understated originality.

Less than an hour from Geneva international airport and a stone’s throw from the resorts of Gstaad and Verbier, Montreux is tucked away in the foothills of the Alps on Lake Geneva. A cosmopolitan cultural and gastronomic centre, Montreux is also known for its excellent private schools and health and fitness centres. Throughout the year, world-famous events such as the Montreux Jazz Festival bring this small town of 25,000 people to life.

Two indoor parking spaces and a cellar complete the property.

Available for sale as a second home to non-residents of Switzerland.

Construction

Designed by the Vevey-born architects Ernest Burnat and Charles Nicati, Hôtel National de Montreux was built in 1874 in a style inspired by the French châteaux of the Renaissance, which featured high roofs and brick chimneys.

Hôtel National owes its spectacular view over the Dents-du-Midi to the architect Eugène Jost, who added an extra floor to the building in 1898 (he also built the covered arcade of shops two years earlier to give hotel guests a wonderful shopping environment).

In the final quarter of the 20th century, Hôtel National was closed and the building was sadly abandoned. It has now undergone a renaissance thanks to its conversion into a luxury residential complex. These modern, spacious and comfortable apartments all enjoy unobstructed views over Lake Geneva and the Dents-du-Midi.

Owners benefit from a wide range of on-demand facility services. The complex includes a spa with steam room, sauna, indoor pool with swim jet, jacuzzi, fitness room and massage room.
