Wollerau, Switzerland; Roger Federer’s New Home.


Almost ready: Tennis player Roger Federer is building a £6.5million 'glass home' on the hills overlooking Lake Zurich

Roger Federer is set to move into a £6.5million glass mansion in the Swiss tax-haven of Wollerau on the shores of Lake Zurich.

Federer and his family will move in to the state-of-the-art three-storey building at the end of the year, to be joined by his parents Robert and Lynette, who could be the new residents in the two luxury apartments being built in addition to the main home.

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.

Located about 20 minutes drive from Zurich and an hour from Basel, Wollerau is one of the lowest tax municipalities in Europe and it’s 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 beautiful canton.

Federer’s new glass-walled home is built on a plot of circa 1.5 acres with underground parking, believed to be worth £6.5million.
