The history

The house and coach house were built in 1904. Originally, the home was used as a residence for a horse manager. (The lower part of the house was a stables.) The property was, at some point, converted into a modern residence, and the current owner renovated it in 2015, gutting the first two floors and adding a new slate roof and a new heating system.

The master ensuite has many luxe features: marble surfaces, a steam shower, a stone soaker tub (plus that awesome tap to fill it with).

But the real showstopper is the oversized window in the shower, which makes a morning routine feel like a chance to commune with nature:

Possible deal breaker
