The guest house
This guest house, one of the outbuildings, has a separate entrance into a large room with a kitchen area and a door leading to a shower room with a toilet. This room features a fireplace and terracotta floor tiles. A wooden stairway goes up to a bedroom.
The lake, in which the closely-planted trees are reflected, gives rise to aesthetic feelings whatever the sky. The outbuildings enclose an area like a friendly school playground, which protects the privacy of the swimming pool and the residence. The latter, topped with its slate roof featuring breaks and highly decorative roof dormers, is extremely attractive. This large, luxurious home has been renovated but can still be improved upon as there are areas in the annex buildings awaiting conversion in accordance with personal requirements and tastes. Nothing is urgent; this is a house that encourages residents to take their time.
