This blend of historical charm and modern openness preserves the home's original integrity. Upon entering, one is greeted by a stone-floored entrance with wood-paneled walls. The entrance leads to a grand dining room featuring a stone fireplace and a dramatic wood-beamed ceiling, which opens to an expansive living room with fireplace. The kitchen, built by Bowa, is a testament to craftsmanship.

Once a dairy barn, it has been modernized and converted into a livable space. This ‘party barn’ includes a full kitchen with a Lacanche stove, a recreation room, office, large bedroom, and bathroom. The terraces provide stunning views of the fields. The property also features a two-bedroom guest house with a marble bathroom, offering a private retreat for visitors.
