Property description

This property has been the long awaited French dream home of ‘Lui Farthing' two Canadian professionals now living in Hong Kong .

Newly refurbished, the team has transformed this property's potential into a charming residence. A few scattered French antiques & light French muted tones provide the canvas to the modern touches in the added furnishings & technology.

La Chouette is a welcoming home from home in the heart of historical Burgundy.

Living: Living...The main living accommodation is located on level 1, overlooking the river and enjoying views up towards the imposing Ramparts. Crisply furnished and with original burgundy character this space is a haven when the sunshine drops in through the large French window with balcony.

Sleeping: Sleeping...There are two spacious and comfortable double bedrooms, both located on the 2nd floor with adjacent 1st bathroom complete with WC. The second shower room for two is located on the ground floor.
