1946 Chalet – Chateau D’Oex, Switzerland

Listing Description

"This Chalet, once the home of the British actor David Niven, dates back to 1946. It is a truly one-of-a-kind masterpiece in the Swiss property market and is now available to buy for the first time in 20 years.

The current owners sympathetically restored the house internally after they acquired it following Niven’s death. The outside, however, remains the same as when David Niven himself lived there.

The property comprises approx. 600sqm of living space on three floors (plus an attic) with five double bedrooms and a large, flat garden of 2,800sqm. There is also scope to further extend the property, subject to planning permission.

GROUND FLOOR: - Entrance hall - Cloakroom - WC - Reception room/ Library - Dining room - Kitchen - En-suite guest bedroom

BASEMENT: - TV room - Study - WC - Ski room - Wine cellar - Sauna & shower - 2 utility rooms - Pantry - Staff room - Garage

FIRST FLOOR: - Master bedroom with en-suite - 2 en-suite bedrooms - Bedroom - Bathroom

ATTIC: - Large attic currently used as storage"

    As soon as I saw this was the home of David Niven, before seeing the inside, I had to post. The views alone are awesome. I don’t know how close the interior looks from the 1940’s but I’d feel right at home here.
