Dating from 1878, this converted barn or Maiensäss is an imposing building that has withstood the ravages of nature over all these winters and will continue to do so for a long time to come. Solid as a rock, and built to last.
The ghosts of the past are palpable in every part of the house, with original floorboards, various antique stoves, and lots of other charming period features. Above all, it is the location and outlook that make it really special: at 2,038m above sea level, you have a front row seat to one of the most glorious views over the lakes of the enchanting and, from this perspective, truly bewitching Upper Engadine.
Repairs to the natural slate roof, the drainage system, plus the introduction of electric wiring means that the major work has already been done. Now you can decide whether to keep this gem as two units, or to convert it into a single, large home. With five rooms arranged over three floors, plus two kitchens, the starting point could hardly be better.
This exceptional home for the afficionado presents the possibility to be at one with nature and to enjoy breaks of unrivalled quality, when you can allow your inner body-clock the chance to reset itself to its natural rhythm.
