Born in Basel: Roger Federer’s Glass Mansion – Tennis ace Roger Federer has a £6.5million glass mansion in a Swiss tax-haven on the shores of Lake Zurich.
The building, called The Residence, is located in Wollerau in Schwyz county, and comes with floor-to-ceiling windows, a swimming pool and large balconies with magnificent views stretching across Lake Zurich. Federer moved from his birthplace of Basel to the ‘tax paradise’ of Wollerau in March 2008, one year before marrying Slovakian-born Mirka.
Located about 20 minutes drive from Zurich, and an hour from Basel, Wollerau is one of the lowest tax municipalities in Europe and the liberal tax structure has attracted other multi-millionaires.
Formula One drivers Kimi Räikkönen and Felipe Massa and the former UBS chairman Marcel Ospel have all chosen to live in the canton. Federer’s new glass-walled home, with 1.5 acres and underground parking, is believed to be worth £6.5million. The 500sq.m property will have plenty of room for Federer, Mirka and their two sets of twins – girls Myla and Charlene and boys Leo and Lenny.
Federer famously likes to take his whole brood on the road.
Scores of builders have been working to get the impressive structure completed, described as ‘prestigious, contemporary architecture with extensive glazing,’ by the developer, Kamata Development.
