Description

EXCLUSIVITY CARDIS SOTHEBY'S INTERNATIONAL REALTY !

Located away from view, behind an imposing gate opening onto a long driveway, this exceptional property which was built on two parcels totaling approximately 12'250 m² enjoys a very private setting. Its vast outdoor areas overlook and offer a breathtaking panorama of 360 °, from which you can admire a magnificent view of Lake Geneva and the surrounding mountains.

Located on the bottom of the town of Blonay on the edge of La Tour-de-Peilz, this mansion is just 5 minutes drive from shops and the bilingual international school "Haut-Lac", as well as 7 minutes by car from Vevey and Montreux. The various highways are only minutes away as well as the equestrian club that will delight horse riding enthusiasts. You can also reach the metropolis of Lausanne in 25 minutes.

Listed as a historical heritage, this unique property has been carefully maintained over the years and restored with noble materials to preserve its original character. An old parquet floor covers all the rooms of the property which also has beautiful woodwork and finishes of choice made to measure. Charm and elegance coexist, offering a warm and cozy atmosphere.

It should be noted that its last renovations date from 2012 and its current typology would make it possible to enjoy it as a single-family house or to easily make it a residence of 2 separate apartments.

Its interior spaces have been well thought out with interconnecting rooms allowing access from both sides, as well as many possibilities of development. Resolutely welcoming, it has many reception rooms with fireplaces and a winter garden that opens onto one of its large terraces.

The building benefits from superb exterior including several gravel terraces and a large swimming pool. It also includes an annex pavilion with high ceilings and sliding doors, which has been fitted out with kitchen and has a large storage room. The latter could if necessary return to its original use as a garage.

The plot also hosts a large tarmac parking and a stable for 2 horses.

Construction

The house has been carefully maintained over time as well as many renovations to keep it in its current state.

The tiles on the roof were notably changed in 1996 and piping in 1998. Work was also undertaken on the ground floor in 2012 as well as the exterior painting of the facade.

A beautiful pavilion sits on the hill from which you can enjoy a beautiful view of Lake Geneva and the Dents du Midi.

It should be noted that all the living rooms benefit from real plaster stucco decorations on the ceilings. Several bathrooms are equipped with Carrara marble (Tuscany) and many mirrors come from ancient castles in France. The upstairs kitchen is equipped with rare green marble from the Pyrenees.

The "famous" architect François Joseph Graf of Paris who started at the Palace of Versailles has created the interior decor of the house (http://grafparis.com/decors/). Tapestries and curtains have been manufactured by Phelippeau Tapissier.
