Exceptional location, breathtaking views of the lake and pool

Description

Just a few minutes from the center of Montreux, this magnificent 7.5 room charming residence is ideally located in the most prestigious area of Clarens. Renowned for its magnificent properties as well as for its dominant position, this place is a paradise for lovers of tranquility.

Built on a plot of 3'248 sqm in the heart of Bosquets-de-Julie, only 500 meters from St-George's International School, this house offers generous outdoor spaces without nuisance, including a large flat garden very well maintained, and an outdoor pool, all in a very intimate and unique situation.

It has breathtaking views of the lake and the surrounding mountains, and has not changed in 200 years.
Installed facing this superb panorama, the only constructions visible in the greenery facing the lake are the roofs of the castles of Burier (1814) and Sully (1794).

Distributed on 1 level + basement, it has a living area of 230 m², and an additional useful surface of 40 m² in the basement. The interior space benefits from spacious rooms and optimal brightness, thanks to its many windows, as well as its south-west exposure. The distribution is pleasant and practical.

This villa has benefited from special care and quality renovations, and is in perfect condition. The selected materials as well as the refined and prestigious finishes form an unparalleled living environment that will satisfy the most demanding.

A double garage, a covered car and outdoor space for several cars embellish this exceptional property.

It is specified that the general plan of current allocation (PGA) allows the addition of about 16 m² on the ground, as well as a level on ground completed by attic and an increase in the floor area more consistent.

Historically, Madame de Warens' aunt's house was on the site of the current portal. Madame de Warens spent all her childhood there, because following the premature death of her mother, she was raised by her aunts. This place was the setting that inspired "La Nouvelle Héloïse" to Jean-Jacques Rousseau.
It is further to add that Gustave Courbet stayed there in 1874.

The original house was destroyed in 1889 and it is in 1956 that was built the current villa.

Acquisition in secondary residence authorized for a non-Swiss resident.
