Once you have arrived at the architect-designed house, you will be amazed by the special appearance, the spatial feeling and the sustainable materials that the house is rich.
This house was built in 1964 and in 2009 inside and out completely transformed into a modern home. Also in 2017, the current residents again paid attention to the white plastered exterior facade and wooden wallcoverings. Also in that year solar panels were installed and a heated outdoor pool was constructed.
