Construction

This mansion, known as ‘le château’, probably dates back to 1699, with the earliest estimate at 1690.

In 1732, master carpenter Frédéric Barbezat from Les Verrières constructed a new pavilion roof over the main building and annex.
In 1903, architect Léo Châtelain was commissioned by Charles Zumbach to add modern turrets to the house, which then became known in Hauterive as 'le château'.

In 1997, the residence underwent full renovation and conversion works.

The mix of materials (limestone and yellow stone) is a characteristic feature of the property.

The house is connected to clean water and waste water systems, while the oil-fuelled central heating is distributed via radiators.

A two-car garage completes the property.
