Large 2 - 3 bedroom home, spread over three levels each level having it's own fireplace chimney and huge terrace overlooking the private garden and surrounding mountainside. 1st level: 1 large bedroom with fireplace and full ensuite bathroom plus private dressing room.2nd level: 1 large bedroom and 1 large office ( that could be converted into a bedroom) with a small open fireplace and built in library along 1 wall.3rd level: Open living area with spectacular views, freestanding wood burner, Jacuzzi, several seating areas, separate WC, plus plenty of space for home workout equipment and a small piano.-1 level: Gardens and multiple stone vaulted cellars, one of which designed for stocking wine and cheese, another would make a fantastic workshop and/or ski room plus a separate room that houses the fuel tank and 2 more additional garden sheds.

The entrance to the private property is through a huge solid wooden gate with a built in drop letter box and a traditional old-fashioned hanging bell for guests to announce their arrival. Crossing the threshold into the partially walled inner courtyard feels as if you stepped into another time. There is a beautiful multi level garden with separate areas, each with its own personality and ambiance. Before we go inside the manor house, let me take you on a private tour of the grounds...

The upper level garden has a more formal layout and is surrounded by trees, bushes and low stone walls. A circular walkway leads you from the private parking area around the garden edges and through to the formal entrance to the house and to where we just stepped through the huge wooden gates.

Down a few steps on your left is a traditional deep stone basin with running water where the washing was done in days gone by. Nowadays it is more commonly used for children to play in on hot summer days or for washing the dog and/or sports equipment, etc...

On the right, in the lower garden, is a lovely sunken pond with a water fountain and tucked behind the outbuilding is a discrete corner garden where to hide the compost heap and garden off cuts for burning. The "outbuilding" actually has wooden lattice for 1 of it's walls, an earth floor and a weather proof slate roof.

Below the formal garden and to our left, is a small orchard with fruit bearing trees.

On the lower garden level next to the sunken pond and covered by the huge wooden terrace above is a perfect place to stockpile wood for the winters, all your sports equipment, et cetera.

Underneath the house are three large storage cellars with vaulted ceilings, stone walls and earth and concrete floors. One area is designed for wine and cheese storage where it naturally keeps a constant temperature year round.

Now lets go back up to the house...

Ground floor level: The formal entrance door has vintage double windows that can open individually to allow the circulation of air. The entrance hall is wide and spacious with a seating area to pull your shoes off and on. At the end of the hall overlooking the garden there is a window and sitting area under the stairs.

There is a bathroom off the entrance hall with a small separate WC with wash basin and small window. There is a separate kitchen with windows overlooking the street which have electric shutters. As you enter the kitchen, the focal point is a beautiful antique but working auger that just needs to be hooked up, the piping is in place. There is a 4 plaque mix induction/halogen cooker, a small oven, refrigerator, dishwasher and a deep double sink.
The formal dining room or reception area can be accessed directly from the kitchen or via the large hallway. There is a small open fireplace with a fixed protection grill and a fitted air vent at the bottom that can be regulated to fuel the fire. You have direct access to a huge covered terrace that overlooks the private garden and mountain views. In fact each level has an identical covered terrace which is approximately 6.5 m by 2.7 m with spacious closet storage at one end plus each terrace has electricity outside.

Upstairs on the first level, there is one huge bedroom with a reversible air-conditioning /heating plus a small open fireplace with a separate conduit inside the chimney. There is a huge ensuite bathroom with a cast-iron freestanding bath tub, beautiful shower, a WC with a ½ privacy wall and an old fashion freestanding vanity sink with wall hung mirror and heated towel rail. The bathroom is light and airy with a nice relaxing sitting area and a built in connection for wiring up your own stereo system. There is a closet that hides the full size sit on top washer and dryer. From the bathroom you have direct access to a walk through built in dressing room complete with shelves, drawers, hanging rails, window and radiator and then direct access to the hallway.

Upstairs on the second level there is 1 large sunken bedroom and a full separate bathroom with corner shower, double sink, WC, heated towel rail and window. The huge office has a small open fireplace and built in wall to wall floor to ceiling bookshelves with glass doors and cupboards below along the far wall. There is an interconnecting door between the office and the sunken bedroom.

The third level top floor living area has been converted under the roof eves with huge windows plus skylights that are equipped with solar panelled electric shutters. The views are fantastic! There is a reversible air-conditioning /heating unit and a fantastic small freestanding cast-iron wood burner stove.
