Bathrooms

I do not know if this bathroom is the one of the owners, but it is certainly the most modern in this residence ! Have you noticed the size of the shower ( on the left of the photo) ? There is also a sauna and a large bathtub a little further.

Other bathroom

The previous bathroom is impressive, but it is by far this one that I prefer !

Office space

The owners can work from home to be able to pay the taxes of this property.

Family room

I would call this room, the family room, though, the room gives me the impression of being the "man cave".

Man cave, other pictures

The place is perfect to drink a good wine while playing poker. We almost have the feeling to be in a private club.

Boudoir

The house has several places of this kind. Look at the details in the floor ( on the first picture ).

Outside

The house features more than one place to enjoy the outdoors.
