Imagine Coming Home for the Holidays to This Magical Villa in Switzerland Asking $15.8M

Ever dreamt of retreating to the beauty of Switzerland as soon as snow begins to fall? Offering exceptional skiing, breathtaking scenery, and world-renowned chocolate, who wouldn’t? But, this villa takes that fantasy to another level. Masterfully designed with room after room full of architectural treasures, Maison de Maitre in Vaud can become someone’s Swiss home base for $14.9 million Swiss Francs, or roughly $15.2 million USD.

Located in the heart of the French-speaking part of Switzerland, the estate offers 6.72 acres of peace and quiet just 20 minutes from Geneva. The home itself is a study in sophistication and was built in 1775, young perhaps for European standards.

Inside its graceful halls, prepare to be in awe of the exquisite finishes, moldings with lovely floral motifs, meticulous woodwork, ornamented period tapestries, sculpted fireplaces, antique parquet flooring, and high ceilings. The current decor serves as prime inspiration as how one can outfit it with ample character and a sense of history. Spaces such as the expansive 9 bedrooms, large vaulted cellar, and poolside pavilion seem destined to encourage such an aesthetic as well.

Shifting your focus to the park-like grounds, the property still sets the scene for the way people lived centuries ago. It’s easy to picture past residents exercising on the lawns or strolling through the gardens, all while commenting on the majesty of the home’s views. Gardening in the summer for farm-to-table goodness or keeping animals here may be the final step to embracing timeless Switzerland estate living.
