With approximately 270m2 net floor space on 3 levels, not to forget the basement with a cellar and a spacious entrance area, the house offers plenty of space. The utility room offers enough space for sports equipment. Also, a ski boot drying device enables the winter sport fans to start each day with warm shoes.
The entire house, including the entrance and the basement, is heated with an environmentally friendly geothermal heating system.
Architecture and Furnishing
Duri Vital, a famous architect from Sent, renovated this Engadine barn with loving care for details. He attached much importance to preserve the charm of the old barn. Throughout the house, all the old wooden floors were thus preserved, sanded by hand, soaped and relayed.
The large dining table is made of old barn wood, just as the floor and a large closet.
From the professional “Alpes Inox” kitchen, one has a very nice view over the entire room. The large, original barn doors provide plenty of light; the old wooden slats in front of the big barn doors can be opened and closed.
The interior was conceived and its elements carefully chosen by modern designers: chairs by Charles Eames, sofa by Rolf Benz, tables by Tom Dixon, soft bath towels by Schlossberg. In contrast to the modern elements old Engadine furniture has also been used to create an incomparable atmosphere.
The house has 2 bedrooms. One is a pine-panelled room and is located on the 1st floor gallery. The smell of the Arolla pine has a soothing effect and ensures a deep and healthy sleep. The bedroom has direct access to the old balcony, completed by a bench. A wonderful spot to enjoy a first coffee in the morning sun.
On this floor, there is a large bathroom with tub, a separate shower and a toilet.
The 2nd bedroom under the roof is an open space with the original beams. The attic floor has several windows and 2 skylights that offer scenic views of the mountains and of the Ardez tower.
This open space has a living area with an HD projector and a 5.1 sound system. Feel free to browse through the near to 200 DVDs and some Blu-ray discs. A list of DVDs can be found here. In addition, you can watch TV – in HD quality – on countless channels and in different languages. The top floor also has a cozy reading corner, a separate alcove with a double bed, toilet, shower and, with a view of the Steinsberg ruins, a sauna made of the typical Arolla wood.
Also part of the house are approximately 700m2 of undeveloped land with two patios, a barbecue and a sandpit.
