This property is all about its dominant position and stunning views. It was built in 1946 and designed by Maurice Novarina a renowned French architect. It is situated in sloping woodland, surrounded by mature trees but offering stunning south-facing views down the valley and towards Roc d'Enfer. The property has been recently renovated to a high standard whilst keeping the integrity of the original Architect's design.
The ground floor has an entrance hall opening to the living/dining room with both a fire place and a log burner. There are French windows opening onto a wonderful logia (perfect for outside dinning and capitalising on the beautiful views). The dinning/living area has 4 picture windows. Also on this floor there is a study, WC and a kitchen with internal stairs down to the pantry and cellar.
The first floor consists of 5 bedrooms (the 3 largest with French windows onto to a balcony) and two modern bathrooms. Above this floor there are two newly created loft rooms accessed via a loft ladder.
On the lowest level the cellar also has external access and has windows for natural light. The oil and wood is stored here, there is also a laundry area and large pantry.
A single garage is built into the slope below the chalet with steps joining the two. There is approximately 3800m2 of land around the chalet, some of it wooded. The roof has been recovered and the guttering replaced 15 years ago. The more recent renovation includes double-glazing, insulation, new electrics, new septic tank, clearing the land to expose the views and extending the parking area.
This chalet combines a wonderful sense of seclusion with proximity to ski resorts (i.e. Hirmentaz 3mins drive, Portes du Soleil & Grand Massif each 45mins drive) and towns (Bellevaux 3km, Geneva 44km). The land around it is non-constructible, so peace and quiet will reign.
