Exceptional period estate in Nyon region
DescriptionThis sumptuous property will offer a time travel voyage to anyone entering its doors. An elegant wooded pathway leads to the large forged iron gates, which opens onto a beautiful courtyard where a centuries-old plane tree stands majestically. The estate covers nearly 3 hectares (part of the plot is an equestrian area) and offers long country walks through truffle oaks and other secular trees, a magnificent vegetable garden with yesteryear products, vast flat expanses of lawn, a French garden facing the Mont-Blanc, all set in a private area, sheltered from prying eyes. The mansion is an unique architectural jewel, which stands out for its authenticity and history.
