Architecturally Striking Property in Cologny, Lake Geneva

Architecturally Striking Property in Cologny, Lake Geneva

Brace yourself for a sumptuous villa on a substantial parkland plot

This design-forward grandiose work of art sits in a prime Left Bank position on the hillside of Cologny – a residential and exclusive area. Put up for sale at CHF 18,500,000 via global platform, the spectacular architectural specimen is one of the top ten most expensive properties in the area (according to the JamesEdition data).


Located on a sizeable lot of 3,500 square meters, inside there’s the 1,100 square meters of space across five bedrooms and seven bathrooms. But it’s the eye-catching exterior that invites discussion and admiration. Constructed in 1990, the 14-room house features high ceilings alongside floor-to-ceiling windows and skylights. The overall effect is a bright and airy home that’s innovative and exciting.

Each spacious bedroom has an ensuite and a balcony to admire the fabulous grounds from, and there’s a lift serving all levels. Meanwhile, down in the completely excavated basement you’ll find a wine cellar, multiple multi-purpose rooms, and a 10-vehicle car park spanning 264 square meters.


Head outside and be greeted by landscaped gardens, with flowers, plants, and large trees ensuring total privacy. Why not choose one of the terraces to relax on, or take a dip in the inviting pool?

Out and about, Geneva is just a 15-minute drive away, while the international airport is a mere half an hour. Furthermore, an array of top schools are on the doorstep, including The British School of Geneva, Ecolint International School of Geneva, and Institut Florimont.


If playing a round is high on your agenda, Golf Club de Genève – number two in the country – is five minutes by car. Additionally, Golf Club Domaine Impérial (holding the top spot in Switzerland) and Golf & Country Club de Bonmont are reachable within an hour.

But if skiing’s more your thing, Chamonix, Megeve, Morzine, Avoriaz, Champéry, Les Gets, and Samoens are all within 90 minutes of Geneva.
