Magnificent house with a large park

Magnificent house with a large park


Fleur d’Eau was built between 1865 and 1867 by architect Francis Gindroz (1823-1878) for the Parisian banker Théodore Vernes d’Arlandes (1820-1893) in a Renaissance style mixed with 18th century classicism.

This wonderful, luxurious home replaced the former house occupied by the painter and art dealer Auguste Brun (1758-1815).

It has a magnificent park with a succession of terraces and pergolas. The gardens were redesigned in 1949 by Jean Camoletti.

On 11 July 1986, Fleur d’Eau was the venue of the famous meeting between Ronald Reagan and Mikhaïl Gorbachev.

The property is located in Versoix, close to the lake and offers a beautiful view of the Alps, Mont Blanc and the lake.

The property has now been completely redeveloped as offices, using high quality materials and is in an as new condition. It is being used by a global trading corporation.

For a company seeking more office space, it will be possible to rent offices in a building under construction on the adjacent plot. A study is also underway that will add further office space on this plot.

Or the house could be returned to residential use.
