A midterrace farmhouse dating from 1673 packed full of authentic mountain charm and character set on 468m2 of land in the pretty mountain village of La Vernaz which is located about 20 mins from the ski slopes of Morzine and the beaches of Lake Geneva. There is currently approximately 100m2 of the farmhouse that has been renovated with a huge barn that could be renovated to provide a further 200m2 approx. of accommodation.
The basement is accessed from the road and runs under part of the house. It consists of a large workshop ideal for skis and bikes and a large wine cellar which has a trap door leading into the main house.
There is a small terrace to the front of the house that leads into the kitchen. The kitchen is a good size with space of a large table in the center. The house is being sold fully furnished and so all appliances and furniture are staying. From the kitchen there is a door leading into the lounge which is large enough to accommodate a sofa and easy chairs. The room benefits from windows over looking the pretty rear garden. Through the lounge there is a door leading into the summer kitchen/laundry room which also houses a WC and a shower room. From the summer kitchen is a door out into the pretty enclosed garden, currently laid to lawn with a large patio area ideal for family BBQs. From the summer kitchen is the stairs leading to the First Floor. Off the main kitchen is a door leading into two adjoining rooms currently used as an office and a bedroom. Off the bedroom is a shower room and WC.
Accessed via the summer kitchen is a landing and two first floor bedrooms, one of which is a single room that can accommodate bunk beds and the second of which is a double room. Both bedrooms have doors opening onto the rear balcony with spectacular views. The balcony leads onto the upstairs terrace which benefits from wide open views across the village to the mountains beyond. On the terrace is a saniflow style WC. The terrace also currently provides the access door into the barn area that is 200m2 approximately and could be developed further with the correct permissions.
