Everyone knows looks can be deceiving, and you should never judge something solely by its outward appearance.
Case in point: really old homes.
When it comes to stumbling upon some pretty impressive pads, there's one house in Linescio, Switzerland that certainly proves it's what's on the inside that counts.
At a first glance, the outside of this 200-year-old structure pretty much looks an old pile of crumbling pebbles.
However, take a peek inside and you'll quickly discover this cottage has a pretty awesome interior.
Recently, Buchner Bründler Architekten set out to give the inside of this home a modern makeover by essentially building a brand new house within the existing stone structure.
While the worn exterior walls of this seasoned residence were left alone, the interior was updated with sleek concrete surfaces and a stylish rustic design that's the epitome of modern countryside minimalism.
Take a look at the photos below to see this awesome renovated house.
