Located in Rolle, a commune in Vaud, Switzerland, the property includes a four-storey mansion, an outbuilding and a garden within its grounds, according to the listing. Located on the shores of Lake Geneva, the largest alpine lake in Europe, the mansion offers panoramic views of the water as well as the surrounding Alps.

“This is a really rare property,” listing agent Marion Baltisberger of Cardis Immobilier Sotheby’s International Realty told Insider. “There is so much to love about this home: the privacy and size of the waterfront lot, its extraordinary location, and the undeniable beauty of the interior finishes.”

Homes in Rolle have a median price of 4.5 million francs ($4.7 million), making this compound an expensive outlier, according to Swiss property platform RealAdvisor.

The main living area has high ceilings, intricate wall moldings and a giant wood burning fireplace mantel.

The dining room is equipped with three chandeliers and a table for 12 people.

The owners, who declined to be named, have owned the property for 20 years and last renovated the mansion in 2008, Baltisberger said.

“It was a complete overhaul, including the technical installations,” she said. Apart from the interiors, they also repainted the exterior and had a pattern engraved on the facade, she added.
