La vie de château exceptionnelle et unique!
The magnificent La Pastorale estate offers peace and quiet, spaciousness, architectural character and majestic grounds: an increasingly rare opportunity in the 21st century.
Lying at the historic heart of Faubourg de Grandson-Corcelettes on the shore of Lake Neuchâtel, the property is within easy reach of amenities (shopping centre, motorway, railway station and bus station are just minutes away), while suffering none of urban life’s inconveniences.
Dating to 1750, the main mansion (about 4,000 m³) has living space of more than 750 m² over three floors; all rooms, be they living rooms, bathrooms or bedrooms, benefit from generous volumes, with superb ceiling mouldings, tiled stoves, fireplaces and traditional parquet floors throughout. A secluded and exclusive property, much sought-after in today’s market.
Adjoining the mansion, a 3.5 room duplex staff apartment, a spacious basement level with easy access and a spectacular vaulted cellar will delight even the most demanding clientèle. The entire building, its fountain, courtyard and grounds are protected by the architectural inventory of the canton of Vaud.
Accessible from the main courtyard, a farmhouse (2,350 m³) features a 4 room apartment on the upper floor and a wine press and old stables on the lower floor. Lastly, an imposing barn (2,480 m³) offers the owners a beautiful space for a conservatory, greenhouse, storage for the gardener and a garage. On the upper floor, the former sleeping quarters of the coachman and the museum atmosphere add to the bygone feel.
But the charm of the surroundings and elegance of the buildings are enhanced by the stunning grounds, with century-old trees of various species, all meticulously maintained to preserve this leafy setting.
A natural habitat with a tropical feel, an enclosed vegetable garden and some 5000 m² of vines overlooking the lake complete the bucolic delights of this property. A magnificent raised terrace garden and flower-lined path to the south of the mansion add to this exceptional setting.
At the rear of the property, an imposing automatic gate controls access and provides privacy.
Last but not least, a vast forested area covering more than 65,000 m² stretches right up to the wild and unspoilt lakeshore, a finishing touch worthy of the greatest landscape painters.
