This large imposing house for sale in St Jean d’Aulps dating back to 1714 was once the region’s jail, courthouse and police station and was where a gunpowder plot was successfully masterminded. It was renovated 200 years ago using stolen stone from the enemy’s demolished Abbey and has subsequently housed a restaurant, a tabac and a village shop and has also been a working farm. Many of the building’s original features remain today. The current refurbishment offers over 350m² habitable space and still has an attic that could be converted.
