The single-story farmhouse also features a home gym and underfloor heating throughout. 

With white-washed stone walls and wooden doors and staircases, the house retains much of its charm and character, allowing people who cross the threshold to feel as though they have stepped into a different era. 

The master bedroom also gives the impression of stepping back in time with a large old-fashioned four-poster bed and wooden furniture. 

The master bedroom is bright and airy thanks to its white-washed walls and large and plentiful windows, while the cottage's attic has been converted into a small bedroom.
