Classified mansion, a stone's throw from the docks!

Description

Just a few meters from the lake and the port of Clarens, this superb 8.5 room residence is located in the famous villa district of Le Bochet. Thanks to its ideal location, it is protected from the nuisances of the Route du Lac and benefits from a rare situation, out of sight.

An undeniable asset is the immediate proximity of all amenities (public transport, shops, schools, international schools, private clinics, etc...). The cities of Vevey and Montreux can be reached in just a few minutes.

Built in 1874 on a spacious flat plot of land, the property is entirely excavated and is distributed over 4 above-ground levels. The basement houses a relaxation area with jacuzzi, sauna and shower. The residence offers sumptuous and luminous reception rooms. You will be able to enjoy pleasant and unique moments in total privacy, thanks to the exteriors which include a large garden planted with various species of trees and a raised stone terrace.

Its south-facing aspect gives it optimal sunshine throughout the day and its beautiful and numerous windows and bay windows give it a beautiful luminosity. From the upper floors, you will be able to admire a sublime view of Lake Geneva and the surrounding mountains.

Every detail has been carefully thought out in order to offer its most demanding occupants optimal comfort. Its high standard amenities include high ceilings adorned with magnificent mouldings and marble-enclosed fireplaces. The floors are covered with majestic period parquet floors.

Three outdoor parking spaces ideally complete this exceptional property.

Construction

Designed in Paris in 1874 by the architect Emile Hochereau, the 22 villas were built between 1874 and 1879. This enclosed and very discreet site forms an English-style park where each house sits in the centre of its own garden.

Classified as historic monuments, the buildings and gardens are maintained in various ways, but overall retain most of the original qualities.

The renovations have perfectly conserved the aestheticism of this lovely property.
