What an absolute dream of an Engadine house this is! First recorded in 1762, the former rectory – featuring cellar walls that date from the 12th century – has, in its time, been a farm, the residence of a mesmerist, and artisan’s workshop and joinery. For the last 30 years it has served as a well presented, all-year round holiday home. This is now for sale and offers the historic buildings enthusiast the opportunity to realize their dream home in a truly unique way.
There is more than enough scope to do so, as it provides over 500 square meters of living space and the basic parameters could hardly be better: the carefully maintained, heritage-listed building has an impressive arrangement of 2 floors comprising 10 rooms, 5 wet-rooms, and a variety of ancillary rooms, all with countless period details worthy of retention. The property can either be taken on as it is, lightly updated, or given a complete overhaul. In addition, the middle section of the building, dating from the 1950s, the garage with studio above it, and the barn, used for housing tools and equipment, have a guaranteed footprint for planning purposes and can all be demolished and re-built in the same dimensions.
In short: the property is an exceptionally rare trophy home that meets every imaginable demand and more in terms of generous living space, a beautiful setting, a high degree of privacy, enough parking spaces, and all the other extras you would expect.
