Orbe

Mansion with attractive riverside grounds

Mansion with attractive riverside grounds

Description

The town of Orbe lies about 30 minutes away from Lausanne and 15 minutes from Yverdon. It offers plenty of shops and leisure facilities and fast access to motorways (Geneva - Bern - Vallorbe).

Located to the south of the town, close to all amenities, this beautiful house is full of character and enjoys extensive tree-studded grounds on the banks of the River Orbe, offering privacy, peace and quiet.

This mansion was built between 1780 and 1790, and has been renovated and maintained over the years. Nevertheless, some modernisation work (wallpaper, carpeting and kitchen) is required.

The first three floors are habitable, while the loft space could also be converted to enlarge the home. All rooms are spacious and bright, making the house perfect for a large family.

Outside, there is plenty of space for parking.

It’s also a sustainable municipality that holds a Cité de l’énergie eco-label, has been designated a ‘strategic agribusiness centre’ by the canton and has successfully developed its industrial park and economic sector.
