Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

This beautiful home dates back to the 16th century, and you can certainly feel its history at every step – original features seamlessly blend in with modern design here. Set amidst acres of lush gardens, the home benefits from stunning vistas and close proximity to many picturesque hiking trails. Inside, it’s all about those oak beams on the ceilings and cosy evenings by the fire. In addition, you’ll also be able to enjoy fun times in the games room. We think this is an ideal retreat for a large family or a group of friends, and what’s more, your four-legged companions can join you as well. Bear in mind that there are quite a few stairs to climb here.
