A 600 year old farm house in a traditional mountain village

A 600 year old farm house in a traditional mountain village with long south facing views over the village and surrounding mountains.

400sq/m of house and 1200sq/m of garden contains four wood burners, modern electrics, electric central heating with radiators throughout.

The house is on four levels and in the undercroft to the garden is a series of original rooms. The carpenter’s workshop is large and contains an old workbench.

Next is a boiler room containing the new electric boiler system. There is a wet room/utility room that was originally the kitchen and next to that is the wine cellar. Neighbouring this is the original living room which is heated and has a dry wooden floor and good light for a studio.

There are wooden outside stairs up to a traditional wooden balcony and door to the rear entrance hall that connects with the main hall and the main door to the house on street level. The rear entrance hall has wooden floor and the main one is tiled. There’s a door to a modern tiled shower room and w/c. Off to one side is a living room with wooden floor and panelling. A long window bench seat faces a glass fronted log burner. There’s a wide archway through to a large kitchen ‘Stübe’ with a small modern fitted kitchen, large square table and corner bench. A large ‘Kachel Offen’ wood burner with a bench surround under a beamed ceiling. The room also has a wooden floor and is
very characterful.

Next to this is an office or bedroom with wooden panelling and floor and a door to a large light bedroom with its own corner balcony looking out to the Julian Alps. Also off the entrance hall is another two large living rooms with a separate bathroom and galley kitchen attached. Wooden floors and beamed ceilings and a panelled floor with radiators throughout and a medium sized tiled ‘Kachel Offen’ wood burner. The bathroom is modern and tiled. The entrance hall to the street level is wide and contains a utility cupboard with a modern fuse board.

Up the wooden stairs to a very large open converted loft on two levels. Off the main room is a modern bathroom and separate kitchen.

A large separate bedroom off to the side contains a door into attic space with another balcony at the end. Next to this is another separate bedroom, both with wooden floors, ceiling and some panelling and book shelves. The main open space has solid pine floors, beams reaching up to the roof apex which is fully insulated. A balcony runs along the 13m length of the living area with windows all along the wall. The room contains a reading nook, a dining area next to the kitchen and a glass fronted log burner.

Up the wooden stairs is the bedroom level that itself is on two levels split by two low steps. There is a dressing room off to one side and the views from the windows over the village and surrounding mountains are memorable. This property clearly has the potential to be divided into three large functioning apartments or remain as a large family house. There are already six bedrooms and many living rooms so this property does not want for space or balconies. The garden is large enough for whatever parking is required and the street is very quiet and residential. The land to the rear is owned by this property so no one could develop in front of the views, which are impressive.

All in all, this property is quite unique and characterful and well worth a view.
