The stop for the school bus and free ski bus service for Ballancy is situated 1.6km from the property, at La Croix Verte.
Ferme Ballancy is one of the aforementioned character properties in the hamlet. Dating back to 1821, its architecture bears witness to its various uses through the decades: from family farm, housing cattle, through to manufacturing watch parts for the local industry, then a summer camp and now a holiday home. The property has undeniable potential. In addition to all of this, the farmhouse comes with a major bonus of 2554m2 of adjoining woodland which is one of the last constructible pieces of land in the area (sufficiently large for 2, or even 3, chalets) and enjoys breathtaking views of the surrounding scenery.
The building comprises:
Garden level: main entrance area opening into a spacious 30m2 kitchen, with glazed door opening onto the garden. Adjacent to this is a large room currently used as a living/dining room of 35m2. Both of these rooms have been entirely renovated and benefit from electric underfloor heating and new double glazed windows and doors.
To the rear of the building, behind these 2 rooms are 2 further large spaces, one currently used as a games room and the other was used as a kitchen by the summer camp. Other modifications made when the property was used for the summer camp include the addition of large window openings, unusual for a farmhouse of this period, as this area would have originally been used to house the animals.
A wooden staircase leads to the first floor where a large corridor serves 8 bedrooms. This floor could easily be remodelled as the dividing walls are not structural. There is an extension to the rear of the property, originally to facilitate the communal shower facilities for the holiday camp, but subsequently converted into the current bathroom with its walk-in shower, double sinks and WC. The extension also includes a laundry area but could equally house another bathroom or sauna/jacuzzi, for example.
The entire property offers enormous potential, thanks to it’s vast living spaces, ease of converting the accommodation to suit, a barn/attic area accessed via a trap hatch from the first floor, plus it’s attached constructible land !
