This facade of this unique home has been constructed of a beautiful blend of old and new materials, with the rough texture of its historical, stone walls having been augmented by a more modern array of smooth, wooden finishes. Doors, window frames, a small balcony and an expansive deck have been added, infusing the home's historical air with a sense of modern style and comfort. The use of wood creates a pleasing contrast of colour and material, while paying homage to the dwelling's remote, rural surrounds.
The foundations of this home are impressively built, and also combine historical and modern architecture to ensure a solid base atop a relatively steep hillside. Here we can see the original foundations of the building have been reinforced by reams of concrete, while its wooden augmentations have been built down to the foundation to ensure their stability.

Small, terracotta tiles line the floor, perfectly matching the tone of the wooden decor, while plenty of windows have been included to light the living spaces, and to provide the occupants with a range of stunning views of their mountainous surrounds.
