Chateau D'Oex, Switzerland


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.

Switzerland has a unique and very localised approach to property.

Its rules are unlike any neighbouring country, and indeed its 26 cantons each have their own policies and practices. For this reason, we cannot give any general buying guidance, but do recommend that you engage an adviser with expertise in the specific location you are considering.
