Superb 18th-century manor house, Grandson
Perfectly 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 3 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 of more than 2 hectares are protected by the Vaud architectural census. Although perfectly habitable and well maintained, it should be brought up to date.
