This fairytale castle is currently for sale, but if you want it to be yours, you will have to find $50 million. Designed by Stephen Sauvestre – one of the architects of the Eiffel Tower, (1847 – 1919), Promenthoux is located on the beautiful shores of Lake Geneva. For the first time in 50 years, the castle was put up for sale and is estimated at a value of £38.8 million. This amazing property will be sold at auction on the 15th June “to the highest bidder” by Concierge Auctions.
Promenthoux castle built in 1896 and is intended to be the summer residence of Couturier Jean Philippe Worth (1856 – 1926) , the son of the “father of haute couture”, Charles Frederick Worth (1825 – 1895). Promenthoux is a 13,988 square foot house on a plot of 9 acres, which consists of forest and a lake which form a paradise.
If this information is not enough to impress you, then you will definitely change your mind when you hear that now this 4-storey house has 7 imposing reception rooms, 8 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 3 kitchens and separate accommodation for staff.
It comes with a hydraulic lift, a gym, a sauna, the largest private harbour on Lake Geneva and also enjoys the most spectacular of views across the water.
This is truly a paradise idyll that will make everyone happy, but we hope that Château de Promenthoux will find its new owner on June 15th.
