Switzerland is known for its picturesque landscapes, high quality of life, and luxurious real estate.

It is also renowned for attracting some very famous and wealthy people who like to spend their money on world-class houses.

There are three such properties that I am aware of that top the scale when it comes to the most expensive houses in Switzerland.

Lonsdaleite Estate, St Moritz

St Moritz is renowned for playing host to the world’s richest people, especially in the winter. So, it is certainly no surprise that one of the most expensive houses in Switzerland is here.

  • Price: $185 million
  • Size: 4,000 square meters
  • Features: The Lonsdaleite Estate features: hidden rooms, an underground lake, crystal-clear glass stairs, and cashmere-covered walls. The mansion also has a ceiling with floating candles and solid gold and platinum fixtures and fittings.
  • Design: The estate has a relatively modest stone and glass facade, but behind it lies a seven-floor mansion centered around a massive six-sided staircase, which is a feat of engineering with no visible support.
  • Extravagant Details: The mansion features
    • an egg-shaped breakfast nook adorned with 24-karat gold
    • a custom-made egg sculpture worth $145,000 hangs from the walls
    • $1.8 million sculpture outside the bedroom window
    • 24-carat gold-coated walk-in closet
    • 360-degree shower and onyx-encrusted bath in the bathroom

Villa Vari, Gingins

Owned by a famous Indian businessman most of us have never heard of – Pankaj Oswal. He is chairman of the Oswal Group, with their hands in petrochemicals, mining, and real estate. He wanted a luxury getaway in the Swiss Alps, and got his wish.

  • Price: $200 million
  • Size: 40,000 square meters
  • Features: Starting with the stunning views of Mt Blanc, the Villa Vari features less over-the-top features, but still has its own swimming pool, tennis court, and helipad.
  • Design: Featuring a unique design that blends modern and traditional elements. The mansion has a stone facade with a red-tiled roof, rendering it rather rustic. The interior is palatial and spacious, with high ceilings and large windows that offer plenty of natural light
  • Extravagant Details: The mansion features an egg-shaped breakfast nook adorned with 24-karat gold, and a custom-made egg sculpture worth $145,000 hangs from the walls.
