A 3.31-acre estate in Switzerland that dates back to 1896 is for sale for 29 million Swiss francs ($30.3 million).
Located in Rolle, a municipality in Vaud, Switzerland, the property includes a four-story mansion, an outbuilding, and a garden within its compound, per the listing. Located by Lake Geneva, the largest Alpine lake in Europe, the mansion offers panoramic views of the water as well as the surrounding Alps.
“It’s a really rare property,” listing agent Marion Baltisberger from Cardis Immobilier Sotheby’s International Realty told Insider. “There’s so much to love about this home: The privacy and the size of the waterfront land, its extraordinary location, and the undeniable beauty of the interior finishings.”
Houses in Rolle have a median price of CHF 4.5 million ($4.7 million), making this compound an expensive outlier, per Swiss real-estate platform RealAdvisor.
The main living area has high ceilings, intricate wall moldings, and a giant wood fireplace mantle.
The interiors of the house are decorated with period-style furniture, most of which came from flea markets and antique stores, Baltisberger said.
The dining area is outfitted with three chandeliers and a 12-seater table.
The owners, who declined to be named, have owned the property for 20 years and last renovated the mansion in 2008, Baltisberger said.
“It was a complete overhaul, including technical installations,” she said. Apart from the interiors, they also repainted the exterior and had a patterned design carved onto the facade, she added.
A large wooden desk forms the centerpiece of the study, which is located on a mezzanine floor that overlooks the main living area.
