Exceptional contemporary villa with panoramic view

Price : CHF 2'850'000.-

Overlooking Lake Léman, this remarkable exclusive property built all in steel and glass floats brazenly above the ground. It is 20 metres from a buttress wall and is held aloft by two thin braces. The owners opted for an open fully-glazed house with a panoramic view of the lake.

The radical simplicity of the design is maintained indoors with a layout based on the square sections of the metal structure.

The rooms are separated by the double walls enclosing the fireplace, a fridge and plentiful storage space. The glass doors lead from room to room and avoid the need for a corridor. The washrooms are separated from the living rooms simply by glass partitions with curtains providing the required privacy.


The house does not rest on the ground, it appears to float on the hill above the lake. Only a small part of the plain steel and glass structure rests on a buttress wall. Most of the building juts out for 21 metres with only two lateral steel braces to hold it in position.
Even the entrance staircases have no contact with the ground and can be raised when required.


This typical Lavaux village only a few minutes from Vevey is within easy reach and open yearlong to walkers, wine lovers or anyone just out of curiosity.

Chardonne is full of life and provides its inhabitants and nearby residents with a rich choice of cultural activities throughout the year.

The singular beauty of the countryside with lake, mountains, nature and vineyards lead to the region being declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Public transport is not far away including, within walking distance, the funicular linking Vevey to the Mont-Pèlerin,. The nearby motorway junction puts Lausanne within a 20-minute drive.
