Object Description

The house was built in the 70s on a terraced plot with an area of approx. 2,921 sq. m. in an attractive, dominant location with views of the lake and the mountains. The house was completely refurbished in 1990 and the small property extended in 2002 in accordance with the owner’s wishes to include a lift, a garage and an open, heated swimming pool.

The living area of approx. 360 sq. m. is divided among the two storeys above ground that are connected by a lift and a staircase. The main entrance on the first floor of the villa can be reached via the lift or via an external staircase.

The upper floor is divided up as follows: Atrium entrance area, living room with fireplace and dining area, large diner-kitchen, two rooms, a full bathroom, a shower room, a large studio (formerly two rooms), a staircase to the lower floor as well as a balcony and terrace. 

On the ground floor there is a spacious living room, an additional room, a bathroom, sauna, laundry, closet, large cellar, tank room with 8,000 ltr. oil tank and a boiler room. 

The house can boast quality fittings such as terracotta tiles and parquet floors, large windows that bring plenty of light into the house and from which one can enjoy a wonderful view of the lake; also a convenient lift that connects the two residential floors. 

The terraced plot offers room for relaxation by the heated swimming pool and in the beautifully landscaped garden that with its azaleas, rhododendrons, jasmine, roses, Canadian vines etc. offers complete seclusion.  

Behind the house is a level area surrounded by trees where an additional building of 200 sq. m. would be possible to construct.

The parcel of land by the lake with its area of approx. 57 sq. m. is located immediately below the villa and has its own slipway for a small boat as well as lake access.
