Magnificent eighteenth century bourgeois house for sale in the centre of Vevey
This 16-room property with a living space of 583 sq. m. is ideally located on a paved street in the centre of the old town of Vevey. The Building was constructed around 1750 and underwent complete renovation work that was finished in 2015, bringing a combination of historical charm and modern comfort.
The property is composed of two buildings (South and North), connected by walkways. It consists of three individual apartments currently used as a one-family house. The future owner could decide to live in the whole property, to rent part of it or the whole lot. The buildings also have a glass-front commercial surface at the level of the pedestrian street, a large workshop / storage space and two private paved inner courtyards, that provide a sense of calm to the place. The bedrooms overlook the courtyards thus protecting them from the city noise.
The complete renovation work of the buildings comprised the following modifications: replacement of the roof, the wood floors, cabling (RJ45 in the whole place for optional connectivity), plumbing including sound proof pipes for maximal reduction of noise. It also included the creation of additional floor space, the installation of a custom-built lift and the expansion of the windows to offer maximum light, preserving its historical charm. Indirect lighting as well as neutral floor and wall colours allow a flexible arrangement. All materials were tastefully selected by an interior designer whether the lift; the many built-in cupboards; the domestic appliances; the high-end bathroom and Italian kitchen taps; oak, waxed concrete or resin floors.
The building is ideally situated in the historical centre of Vevey with its many shops, restaurants and cultural events. It is 50 metres from the lake in a sought-after pedestrian street and a 7-minute walk to the station. There are direct trains to Geneva and its airport.
A few International schools are close by. The A9 motorway is only 6 minutes away by car, which provides easy access to many ski resorts and surrounding mountain attractions such as Villars, Verbier or Crans-Montana.
