Cologny has been the centre of some of the very best luxury homes since the 18th century, being one among eight towns in the Geneva.
It is one of the least populated of towns which has ensured that it has retained its village character. This is the location of Chateau El Masr, to be sold by Christies International Real Estate.The six bedroom, seven bathroom property was owned by Jean-Paul Demierre in the 18th century when he purchased the luxury
from a village cooper and his son Ami built the tower see covered in ivy today on the property. This design is the same as the Champel Tower as Ami made good use of some of the very best
materials which were left over from building the tower.The luxury home
was purchased at the end of the 19th century by Charles Flood, originally a Scotsman who had returned from Egypt and while he kept the tower, he took on architects to build a half gothic style, half oriental style chateau between 1883 to 1884 and named it, El Masr, which means the Egyptian.The current owner of this luxury home
then spent more than five years renovating the whole building while at the same time taking great care to each detail so as to perfectly maintain the Neo-Elizabethan style. This had been in fashion at the time the original property had been initially
created. The chandeliers of the luxury homes
were created by one of the very best
names Murano and the marble statues and fountains decorating the exterior of the chateau had to be imported from Venice so as to keep in style and harmony. Today the Chateau El Masr is among the very best
examples in Geneva of Neo Tudor styling. This luxury homes
is made up of a terrace donjon along with turret staircase that provides one of the most stunning views out over Calvins City and the Lake Geneva water fountain. The luxury home
