At the Saint Christophe estate, the serenity of the place, the generosity of the spaces combined with the character of the buildings and the historical past are the key words of this incredible estate full of history.
Acquired and enlarged in the 16th century by a member of the noble family of Diesbach, this estate became a rural fiefdom of some importance overlooking the plains of the northern Vaud region. Once a village, it is now a hamlet of Champvent consisting of several buildings: a winegrower's house, an outbuilding, an old granary and a manor house called "Château ou Manoir de Saint Christophe".
The main asset of this estate is the building considered as the manor. This manor house has admirable proportions and is almost square in size, characterised by its huge hipped roof. It is embellished by a bell tower housing a bell dating from 1703 which is still in place. The interior is described in more detail later in the dossier. Listed as a national historic monument, the current owners have already undertaken major architectural projects to transform the manor house, which is not habitable in its current state.
In a dominant position over the village of Mathod, the charm of the place and the elegance of its buildings owe much to the quality of its location and its outdoor spaces, lined with centuries-old trees of various species, as well as its exceptional and unobstructed panorama over the plains and the neighbouring mountains, from the Bernese Alps to the magnificent Mont Blanc, which pierces the sky.
As you can see, there is absolutely no other property like it in the whole of Switzerland. If you wish to purchase this exceptional property, please contact us directly to obtain more information or to arrange a visit.
