Superb 18th century property, ten hectares, near Yverdon
DescriptionPerfectly discreet behind a surrounding wall, this beautiful 18th century building seems to revive an art of living full of peace and serenity. The property is nestled in a majestic two hectare park extended by a forest plunging into Lake Neuchâtel. One is immediately amazed by the redwoods, cedars of Lebanon and other secular beeches that adorn the park, which extends to a Japanese garden that is reached by a path lined with boxwoods. This splendid mansion of 750mwas built in 1750 and is completed by two large outbuildings and a service flat. The mansion offers magnificent reception rooms, libraries, boudoir and study; as well as 6 beautiful bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The authenticity of the house is evident at every step, with oak floors, fireplaces, tiled stoves, mouldings and alcoves. The basement houses beautiful cellars, including a magnificent vaulted room, as well as
the technical premises. A 3.5 room duplex service flat is attached to the house. On the east side, before entering the courtyard, stands the first large outbuilding, which houses a large 4-room flat on the first floor with independent access, as well as large storage rooms and orange tree wintering rooms, a beautiful wine press and a dovecote. On the west side, crossing the courtyard before going to the park, there is a beautiful two-storey farm building with several barns, a henhouse, a greenhouse, winter gardens, old stables and the coachman's room. This house, close to all amenities, and its park are protected by the Vaud architectural census. Although perfectly habitable and well maintained, it should be brought up to date.
