From Montreux with love

Montreux struts its stuff… SoBARNES shows you the best of what the Vaud Riviera has to offer with this property listed for sale by BARNES Switzerland.

Other than their star status, what do Miles Davis, Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald, David Bowie, Prince, Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Pharell Williams and Lady Gaga all have in common? SoBARNES has the answer: they have all given concerts deemed ‘historic’ at the Montreux Jazz Festival. A list that will leave you dumbstruck. And even though the festival was cancelled in 2020 for the first time in 53 years due to the health crisis, the legend of Montreux has never been so alive. As is evident from the line-up for the Autumn of music, set to bring together young Swiss talent and big international names for promising jam sessions from 12 to 17 October.

Yep, there’s something magical about Montreux. Set between Lake Geneva and the Alps, with the vineyards of Lavaux as a backdrop, welcome to the most majestic of what the Vaud Riviera has to offer... and ‘majestic’ is exactly the word to describe this property. Built in 1906 on over an acre of land gently sloping towards the lake, it gives off an enchanting je-ne-sais-quoi between a James Bond-style villa and the dream mansion of a modern day Orson Welles.

Everything is transcendent here, the 15,069 sq ft of living space, the 14 rooms including 7 bedrooms with panoramic and commanding views, the lift, the pool... The whole place has, of course, been redone from top to bottom with materials and high-tech equipment that are just waiting for their new owner, and of course their family and friends.

And what a location! This is the most popular neighbourhood of Montreux, a two-minute walk from St. George's International School (talk about practical!), and around a mile from the motorway junction yet far enough to be free from the noise (also practical), with the city centre just a 3-minute drive away (even if it’s not in the Lamborghini like in the video).

Exclusively listed for sale with BARNES Switzerland, this marvel comes at a price: 22.5 million Swiss francs to be exact (around €20.9 million).
