St. Lorenzen on the Turracher Höhe in Carinthia
The ensemble of buildings of this classic heaped courtyard, which was created centuries ago, is embedded in the surrounding meadows and forests in a completely protected, south-facing, secluded location and still gives an insight into this once important farm. Especially in these times, this historical concept offers a place of refuge with its precious charm for real relaxation and enjoyment of nature in classic tradition in undisturbed surroundings.
Traditional and unique courtyard ensemble on 16 hectares in a prime location!
The extensive renovation of this courtyard ensemble was carried out between 2013 and 2016 under the strictest aesthetic requirements. Everything in the old craft tradition, with the aim of preserving the original building fabric, but meeting the highest international quality standards in the interior.
The classic heaped courtyard consists of five buildings and is completely south-facing, surrounded by vast meadows that merge into forest in the east and west. In the south the border is out of sight; two streams form the natural border in the east and west and the country road in the north. At the junction to the private driveway planted with tall mountain ash trees, the developer erected a traditional wayside shrine - in memory of the local patron saint.
The conversion and expansion of the very spacious original farmhouse with a pure living space of approx. 360 sqm was planned by an internationally award-winning team of architects and designers, with the aim of gaining more space and maximum light exposure. The former storage house, today a wide entrance hall that runs from east to west, is covered with centuries-old stone slabs - just like in the classically modern kitchen.
An architectural peculiarity arises in the interior through the open extension of the ceiling between the first floor and the former attic, as well as a bridge connecting the master suite with a second spacious living area. The entire building was lifted, straightened, the old-age attic was dismantled, cleaned, restored and put back on. These interventions are not visible today; The attic and superstructure seem completely untouched.
On the ground floor, in the southern area, across the entire width of the house, there is the large, sunlight-flooded living and dining room with a newly built tiled stove that can be heated from the hall. The room is surrounded on three sides by an all-round, covered balcony.
The spacious, fully built-in kitchen in oak and steel is located on the north side of the ground floor with a separate dining room. There is also a toilet and a laundry room with a work room on the ground floor. A spacious, heated ski storage room is attached to the west side of the house.
An open wooden staircase leads to the first floor with an anteroom of the same size as on the ground floor, developed as a game and lounge area. There are two guest rooms with bathrooms on each side. This floor is also surrounded on three sides by a directly accessible, covered balcony, which merges into a terrace on the west side.
From the stairs the view opens onto the wooden bridge and the high side and ridge walls in the attic, which is made entirely of wood. On the right hand side, under the ancient, towering roof beams, there is a second spacious living room with a panoramic window, which offers a view of the parish church, which is illuminated at night. The built-in glass fireplace conveys mood and wellbeing. The bridge enclosed with safety glass leads to the large master area with a shared bathroom, shower, bidet and toilet. Here, too, there is a panorama window under the ridge with an opening onto the private, roofed balcony in a purely south-facing position with a wide view of the upper Gurk Valley and the Nock Mountains.
