An architectural peak, Rhone-Alpes

An architectural peak

Erected between the 12th and the 19th centuries, this sixstorey architectural gem was recently refurbished by 100+ local workers. A former defense tower between Grenoble and Chambery, "the property is now a vertical family house providing 800 sq m of living space," says the Perle du Lac Sotheby's International Realty agency. The estate features nine bedrooms connected by a state-of-the-art glass elevator and a 7,600-sq m enclosed plot. 25 m above the ground, the last floor's 16 windows have outstanding views over the Mont Blanc.

Proposed price: 1,900,000 euros
