Bioclimatic design house with 145 m² living space.
“ A box within a box!”
Nordic-style property, built inside a wooden hangar (20 x 13) which serves as the outer skin.
The hangar stands on a concrete base which makes clever use of the land’s natural incline, protecting the wooden, cube-shaped dwelling from inclement weather, rain, snow, sun and wind. Direct access from main house to several outbuildings and storage-type areas created under the wooden structure and in the basement. High-ceiling garage capable of accommodating a campervan or boat. Additional space also available to create work, artist or music studios.
Ground floor with open-plan kitchen leading onto living room. Two rooms with sliding windows leading onto wooden terrace and vegetable garden. Bedroom, shower room, separate wc and storage room/laundry complete this level. Two glazed doors lead to outbuildings/storage areas on same floor. Upper floor: lovely mezzanine level used as sitting room, leading to two bedrooms, shower room and separate wc. View of valley and forest from each window, creating an observatory-type feel.
Excellent insulation and biomass stove which heats property at a minimal cost (€200/year or roughly 5m³) and also complies with the property’s bioclimatic design principles.
Electric radiators which can be remotely operated and controlled via wifi, in the event of owner’s absence.
Ground floor, leading onto courtyard, comprises large high-ceiling garage plus storage space/workshop. Upper floor, accessed via stone staircase, leading to 50 m² (approx.) mezzanine, which could be extended, if desired. Basement, also accessed via concrete staircase, comprises vast cellar and large, open-plan, covered area which could be converted to a garage. This wonderfully spacious area, with panoramic view of valley, could equally be converted to an enclosed room, serving any number of purposes. Very practical vehicular access with potential parking at basement level or up above, near the main entrance.
5 000 m² of sloping land with a flat area used to create a courtyard and vegetable garden. Grass area above property extending as far as forest, offering spectacular view. Attractive flowerbeds at lower end of property enhance the naturally lush surroundings.
