Construction

Built from stone, this stunning property was first built in 1911 and refurbished in 1990. Further works were carried out on the roof and heating system in 2007 and 2009. It is currently in perfect condition and requires no major works. The property has undergone extensive alterations and renovations over the years so as to maintain its value and prestige. The roof and insulation have been entirely replaced. The heating is generated by a heat pump with two 320 metre geothermal sensors. All floors are equipped with an underfloor heating system except for the attic where there are radiators in order to reduce inertia. The rooms are tastefully decorated and spacious. Each bedroom is furnished with built-in cupboards with some featuring interior lighting or drawers. Each of the floors boasts ample storage space. The kitchen is fully fitted with semi-professional appliances with an elegant granite work surface. Among other things, it boasts an electric and gas cooker, a grill and a much sought after La Cornue oven, a conventional oven, a high capacity extractor fan and a serving hatch fitted with an infra-red system.
