A cunning contemporary rehabilitation has completely transformed this splendid fortified farm and its outbuildings in a comfortable house. With a U-shape around the courtyard, opening onto the garden made of terraces; the house is overlooking the valley and benefits from a view as far as to the Alps.
In order to optimize the beauty of the view, the transcendence of the natural light, the eastern and southern facades of the main building have been largely opened, thanks to large aluminium bays, to make of the landscape a living painting whatever the season.
The interior layout has also been reconsidered to emphasise large voluminous rooms and the pretty original fireplace. The renovation has been total: from floors up to roofs in order to offer a new and very comfortable house.
On the 1st floor, you discover a large dining room of 46 m2 with a fitted and fully equipped kitchen and a study benefiting from a large windows with a view on the garden and the mountains on the horizon.
Three steps lower, a 2nd living space of 67 m2, very luminous thanks to a 5 meter high bay, enjoys a direct access to a large terrace overlooking the panoramic view.
From another bay, you can see the interior courtyard, the pretty round-shaped outbuilding as well as the authentic exquisite fireplace. There is a W.C. on this floor.
A wooden and iron staircase leads to a stoop from where you can see the sitting room from above and admire its volume.
On the next floor, a bedroom of about 30 m2 with view onto the courtyard has its own dressing space. There are two other bedrooms of 15,90 m2 and 15 m2, the one overlooking the garden, the other the panoramic view onto the horizon. The whole floor is equipped with 2 shower rooms, walk-in shower with toilet and washstand for 4,1 m2 for the one, walk-in shower with toilet and double washstands for the other and 6,3 m2.
On the garden level, you find a cellar, a wine cellar, and the heating room /utility room (air pump and oil heating system).
The outbuildings are made of two adjacent buildings in a T-shape, both with brand new roofs.
In the 1st one, a new concrete floor has been build, an opening for a future staircase too. There, two levels could be developed for some 149 m2 surface with an independent access on the garden side.
