With hiking in the summer and ski touring in the winter on your doorstep and the peace and tranquility that this location offers, it's a ideal retreat from the stresses of daily life. This 19th century Savoyard farmhouse is truly unique and currently offers 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom but with a large barn and further outbuildings in the building zone there is huge potential to expand the property further. A unique opportunity to live the dream.
Large vaulted cellar
Ideal for bike and ski storage plus garden equipment.
105m2 of living space
The ground floor has been converted from the former farmhouse layout into 105m2 of very spacious and comfortable living accommodation benefiting from 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom all double glazed and with an oil fired central heating system. It is laid out as follow:
Kitchen The front door leads into the kitchen from the terrace. The kitchen is traditional in sytle with oak units, granite work tops and a feature range cook that is both wood fired, electric and a gas hob. There is space for a kitchen table in the centre of the room.
Lounge The lounge benefits from 2 south facing windows with wonderful views, an oak parquet floor and a wood burning stove. The owner has managed to keep many of the original Savoyard features including the ceiling and the traditional cupboards.
Bedroom 1 Off the lounge is the large master bedroom also with windows benefiting form the stunning south facing views.
Corridor There is a long corridor that runs the full length of the house and opens up onto the South West side of the house via a door leading into the garden.
Bedroom 2 A good size double room with oak parquet floor and side aspect window with views of the pretty Mazot.
Boiler/Laundry room Housing the boiler and washing machine.
Bathroom Good size bathroom with basin and bath with standin shower. Heated centrally heated towel rail.
Dressing room Walk in dressing room ideal for storage.
Bedroom 3 Double room currently used as an office and accessed via the kitchen or the central corridor. Glass door leading onto the terrace and window. Oak parquet floor.
On the first floor is a large empty barn formerly used to store the hay to feed the animals over the harsh winter months. Its now a large space of about 110m2 with a height of about 5.6m just waiting to be transformed into a spectacular open plan living room and kitchen with huge windows with views over the valley. If you don't need any more living space, it's potential uses are limitless, it could be transformed into a huge yoga studio, a climbing wall, a gym or a children's play room. A space where you can start your own business and come and live the dream.
The garden is 1500m2 approximately and benefits from a very pretty Mazot (small outbuilding) that would make a fantastic 'small spaces' conversion project and a dream property to rent out to other retreat seekers looking to escape from it all.
There is also a further outbuilding which is a bread oven that makes a wonderful evening venue for friends and family pizza parties.
And finally the vegetable plot means you can even grow your own organic produce, keep chickens and really embrace the goodlife.
Finally the access to the house is a bit steep, but there's your final excuse to buy that Landrover Defender you have always wanted.
