The Hofstadl

A beautiful 18th-Century Tyrolean chalet nestled in the Austrian alps, now on the market.

A mid-eighteenth century three story Tyrolean chalet sits nestled in the high valley at the foot of Mount Grossglockner, 2.5 miles from the center of the picturesque Austrian village of Heiligenblut. This gem has been relocated, rebuilt and completely updated by Austrian farmhouse restorers, Austrian-born Wolfgang and Susan Hofherr of Authentic Provence. The exterior and interior integrity and charm of this simple rustic Austrian farmhouse have been maintained while all the systems and structure have been modernized. Completely turnkey, a haven for skiers, nature worshipers, hikers, fishermen and those needing a real getaway place, charming Hofstadl is truly a rare find!
