Arguably one of the most prestigious locations on the wine route, Bougy-Villars lies mid-way between Geneva and Lausanne and enjoys splendid and unobstructed southerly views across Lac Léman towards the Alps and Mont Blanc and towards Montreux in the East. The motorway is a few minutes drive as are good shopping facilities in Aubonne, Etoy or Rolle. Despite this convenience, the property is secluded and tranquil. There are also good local and international schools in the region.

Constructed in 2004, this elegant property is designed for gracious living. Standing on a plot in excess of 1,300 m2, it has a total living surface of 468 m2. Approached via a semi-circular drive that leads up the villa, it is spread over 4 floors with every floor being accessible by lift. Notable features include a large heated indoor swimming pool, double height ceilings maximising the light influx in every single room and geothermal underfloor heating system throughout the house.

The living quarters of the house can be found on the 2nd floor, which is accessed via an external staircase and/or internal passenger lift.
The welcoming entrance hall with a visitor’s WC leads to a large and well-proportioned living room and dining room. Both having large picture windows with panoramic lake views and give access to a paved terrace which is wrapped around the house. Part of the living room is used as a library which shares a charming fireplace with the reception room, visible from either side. Set between the dining room and the living room, is a large south-facing conservatory. Adjacent to the dining room is a well equipped eat-in kitchen with two french windows giving access to an extensive stone-laid patio. A laundry room completes this floor.

Going up one flight of stairs, the night area can be reached. This level enjoys double-height ceilings which give it a very voluminous feeling. The master suite benefits from an ensuite bathroom, an office and a separate toilet. There are numerous built-in cupboards, and a staircase to the attic which is excellent for storage space. This floor also offers two further bedrooms, which share a balcony, and two bathrooms (of which one with a shower and one with a bath). In addition, an open plan TV / reading area can easily be converted into a 4th bedroom if desired.

On the first floor, one can find an indoor heated swimming pool (8m x 4m) with shower and leisure area. Large doors open onto a terrace, which make it ideal to use the swimming pool during the summer months. There is also an independent office, with shower room and kitchenette. This can be converted into a self-contained 1 bedroom apartment.

The ground floor includes 2 indoor garages (for a total of 3 cars), a wine cellar, a storage room.

This property is in impeccable condition, both house and well-established garden are low maintenance.

The charming and tranquil village of Bougy-Villars has a population of less than 500 and benefits from a low tax regime (0.62).

Considering the fact that this is an architect's home, it allows flexibility to the final configuration and design of the most demanding buyers' needs.
