The house stays wonderfully cool in the summer and cosily warm in winter.
It has special touches like the pantry built into the mountainside enabling a consistent cool temperature and a very special wine store. A dedicated water tap in the kitchen for the pure spring water and an automatic temperature gauge for the germam style log burner (kachelofen).
The Kachelofen itself keeps the whole house warm in winter and heats the water. Solar does this in the summer.
The house is set amongst manicured gardens and trees looking down over huge terraces to the magnificent panoramic views. It is entered through a vaulted atrium which is spectacular. The living area is large and airy with high solid wood ceilings and the kachelofen which starts on the floor below. The room is flooded with light through the many french windows and the views from everywhere are stunning. This floor also has the pretty kitchen with wood fuelled stove as well as all the normal fixtures and fittings. The window looks out over the enormous 20m fresh water swimming pool. This pool is kept aerated and clean via a natural filter system.
There are three double bedrooms with fantastic en-suite bathrooms and an opportunity to create an independent apartment from the studio and adjacent vaulted hall area. This has been prepared for a kitchen should it be desired. Everywhere is spacious and there is another study/office plus a large and well kept technical room.
On this enormous plot which surrounds the house there are two ruins which can be renovated as well subject to planning consent.
It really is a wonderful property and would make a very comfortable family home or a great escape to peace and quiet and beauty.
