Stadl Altenbach is a historic “Kellerstöckl” in southern Styria. This style of house – a hillside construction with a cellar built into the hill – are traditionally found in the Austrian wine-growing regions. The barn in Altenbach has been extended by a glass annex to a 65 sqm cottage for two. The historical barn features the bedroom and the bathroom with a freestanding bath. The traditional small windows, the rustic beamed ceiling and the old wood stove create an intimate and warm ambience. The extension, with the living, dining and kitchen area, has a modern, open character and merges harmoniously with the old house. The outer wall of the old barn is the inner wall of the living area; the natural stone wall behind the kitchenette is the same as that of the older building’s basement. The other two walls (as well as parts of the ceiling) are glazed and provide beautiful views of the picturesque hills. Its panoramic sauna, pool and the natural pond with a plunge pool make this house a private wellness retreat.
