The house itself is entered through steps from the courtyard leading into a 11m hallway from which you reach three rooms, one being 16m2, another 14m2, and a smaller one with exposed wooden beams and ceiling of 8m2. Below the house there is a cellar for storing preserves and homebrew. There is also a bathroom which is connected up by a pump to the well in the courtyard. The house is heated using wood stoves, but the village has gas and so gas central heating could be fitting is preferred.
