Almost 400 years of life
Kollreider Hof is situated in the East Tyrolean community of Anras. With roots going back to the 17th century, this almost 400 years old farm has an authentic and romantic atmosphere that radiates with its welcoming cosiness.
The buildings at Kollreid – the farmer’s house, the barn and the chapel grew step by step around the old renovated corn chamber. The St. Joseph chapel with its antique paintings from Anton Josef Zoller is to this day a well visited landmark that was built by farmers as a sign of gratitude in the 18th century.
That Kollreid looks like it does today is thanks to the current owners – The Stuchtey family. The Munich-based family of 8 found the farm in 2011 and renovated the place. Because the family wanted to respect the original footprint of the older building, the existing structures were handled with care and old building materials that were found around the farm were reused for the renewal of the house. Also, since sustainability lies at the heart of the Stuchtey’s, solutions such as solar energy, insulation and a wood chip heating system are now part of the farm structures. The result is beautiful and has given Kollreid a fresh boost while preserving the magical ambience that the old farm has. The renewal was awarded with the Tyrolean Renovation Prize in 2014.
