A quaint Swiss sanctuary where life’s little pleasures await
Written by: Amy R. Remo
It’s a lifelong aspiration for many to have their own secluded sanctuary set amid nature.
More so, to have a quaint yet resplendent home in the beautiful idyllic countryside, atop stunning mountain landscapes where life can be simple, serene and peaceful, yet modern, luxurious conveniences are still within easy reach.
Such a picturesque enclave, after all, can do wonders for your health and well-being. As studies have shown, nature heals, restores and rejuvenates. No wonder many are now racing to find lots, homes, or just about any kind of property in such breathtaking, serene locations. More than just a real estate purchase, it’s more importantly a priceless investment in your wellness.
Home in nature’s embrace
Thankfully, an easy drive to Tagaytay City brings you to nature’s embrace.
There, you’ll find Crosswinds, a 100-hectare Swiss-inspired luxury community being developed by Brittany Corp., the luxury residential arm of the country’s largest homebuilder Vista Land & Lifescapes Inc. Not only is it a stunning destination that regales you with its cool mountain clime, lush pine forests and fresh, sweet-smelling air, it’s a community you can call home.
This famed vacation spot—with its charming Swiss chalets and row of curated dining options—is set amid nature’s most beautiful wonders. Some 35,000 towering pine trees sit atop an undulated rolling terrain of verdant greenery, where magnificent vistas are peaceful and calming. Despite the modern conveniences integrated within the estate, open areas and pocket gardens abound, providing you ample spaces to enjoy and appreciate life’s most simple pleasures.
Quaint Swiss community
One of the villages at Crosswinds, in particular, will allow you to indulge in the luxurious resplendence of a quaint Swiss community.
Lausanne, an exclusive 24-ha European-inspired mixed use development, is Crosswinds’ most premium lot-only development. It is poised to mirror the charm and refinement of its namesake French-speaking city, with its design taking inspiration from Europe’s charming spots, great architecture and beautiful natural surroundings.
Nature steals the show in this up and coming community, as it is surrounded by lush greenery, towering rock faces, flowery meadows, and tall pine trees that give the development a distinct yet cozy ambiance. The ultra-premium lots on offer at Lausanne will give its future homeowners the luxury of enchantingly sweeping panoramas—the lush hills of Tagaytay City, the calm Laguna de Bay, and yes, even the skyline of Metro Manila.
Modern conveniences will meanwhile ensure your comfort. A picturesque promenade a few blocks from Lausanne features unique retail concepts and attractions that offer a wide range of cuisines and transport property owners and guests to Europe. There’s Dear Joe, Windmill at Lausanne, Cafe Yama, and Andersen’s Bakery. Also rising in this curated community are one-of-a-kind attractions such as the flower farm, strawberry field, vineyard, and chapel.
Only for a few
Such an enthralling, upscale community, however, beckons only to the affluent few.
It is for those who understand and recognize the value of investing in real estate and in one’s well-being. It is for those who are looking to pass this property on as a legacy, who are willing to pay a premium to settle in the midst of nature, in a highly exclusive, sophisticated community where luxury is a given.
Lausanne currently offers only 75 premium lots, with cuts ranging from 360 to 875 sqm. Such spacious areas provide opportunities for future residents to create a home with enough room and flexibility to suit their needs. This is perhaps one of the best things about investing in a lot-only property—it’s raw land, a tangible asset that affords you certain flexibilities on how you would want to build your dream home.
Unsurprisingly, demand and capital values for such high-end properties have been steadily rising over the past several years, prompting Brittany to launch Lausanne’s second block of prime residential lots—this time, with only 27 premium lots that offer better views and bigger cuts.
It’s a valuable asset to have to say the least, as a lot in Lausanne will not only allow you to revel in an opulent respite, in a picturesque enclave well suited for the highly discerning. You will also have a sound addition to your investment portfolio, which can potentially generate returns for you over the long term.
Many come to Lausanne for the European vibe, while others come to slow down and indulge in the rustic elegance and the spectacular scenic beauty of the place. But evidently, it’s a dream destination to fulfill your lifelong aspiration.
Brittany Corp., the company behind this exclusive, nature-inspired enclave, also offers a fine selection of home designs, high-end condominiums, and lot-only properties in excellent locations such as Portofino in Alabang, La Posada in Sucat, and Promenade in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.
