Full description:

Maison Pombourg is a stone house typical of the area, with vine leaves growing around the windows.

It is a charming house, full of character nestled in a place called Pombourg in the commune of La Forclaz, half way between Thonon-les-Bains and Lake Geneva and the ski resorts of the Portes du Soleil.

It covers 3 floors and is made up as follows:-

On the ground floor : a storage room, a boiler room with oil boiler, a garage for 1 car.

A staircase on the outside of the building gives access to the 1st floor terrace.

On the 1st floor : a terrace giving access to the main entrance, an entrance with corridor leading to a kitchen, 2 bedrooms, a storage space and a bathroom, a separate toilet, a big living room with enclosed fireplace.
One of the bedrooms and the living room have balconies with stunning views of the mountains and, in good weather, Lake Geneva.

The 1,265m2 garden can be accessed from this floor.

On the 2nd floor : a barn for conversion.

The house has a mazot (decorative outbuilding), which is typically Savoyard and brings additional charm and character to the house. It would be possible to make a bedroom in the mazot for guests, or rent it out as an quirky spot to stay or simply used for storage.

Maison Pombourg is in general good order and well built, however does require some works, the materials being original.

It is light and spacious and has great potential due to the barn which could be completely renovated.

La Forclaz is 17kms from Thonon-les-Bains and Lake Geneva, 14kms from the village of Saint Jean d'Aulps and the Roc d'Enfer ski resort which is part of the Portes du Soleil ski area just 17kms away.

Ideal for anyone not wanting to be too far from Geneva, just 1 hour away.

About Alpine Property, Haute-Savoie

Alpine Property was formed in 1999 to address the need for an estate agency serving International property buyers in the Alps. It was centered around the principle that the complex and often daunting process of buying property abroad is best served by professional, local advice in your own language.

In its infancy, Alpine Property concentrated on properties in the Morzine and Les Gets area, finding foreign clients for the local Estate Agents in the area. It soon became clear that there was a pressing need for a full-service estate agency specifically catering for foreign buyers - and so it was that Alpine Property expanded its service to become a one-stop-shop offering its own properties and accompanying clients along the entire property buying process. In order to provide this service in France, Estate Agents must hold a Carte Professionelle to show that they are properly qualified, licensed and insured. Renewed annually, the Carte Professionelle requires agents to demonstrate their professional ability, be fluent in French and to have taken out professional indemnity insurance. These rigorous demands and a lengthy bureaucratic process mean that very often foreign Estate Agents operating in France do not have this all-important card, and therefore 'pass you on' to local Estate Agents to complete the formalities of the sale once you have verbally agreed to buy. This often leads to confusion and errors in this important final stage.

This change coincided with an expansion in both scale and service - Alpine Property began to offer properties across the whole of the Haute Savoie region and invested heavily in its unique and innovative website to provide the most comprehensive buying and selling service available in the French Alps.
