An atypical and character-filled apartment at the foot of the ski slopes.Ailsa Bishop Alpine Property agent for Morzine & St Jean d'Aulps
This beautiful apartment is on the first floor of a lovingly restored farmhouse, situated only 100m from the ski slopes. Divided into 3 apartments, the farmhouse was fully renovated from top to bottom around 10 years ago, and now provides classy and contemporary accommodation, whilst still retaining the character of the original Savoyard property.
The main living area is open plan and is very spacious. The centrepiece of the room is the wood-burning stove, and the exposed beams and double-height ceiling add both character and a feeling of light and space. The large master bedroom with dressing room and en-suite shower room are situated off the living area, along with the second bedroom and bathroom. A handy study area can double up as additional storage space.
Up the wood-and-glass staircase is the generous third bedroom, located in the eaves, with a further room off the rear, currently used as extra storage, but with first-fix plumbing installed for conversion into an en-suite bathroom.
There is plenty of additional storage space too. There is a cellar located outside the front door to the apartment, handy for storing the vacuum cleaner and other items best kept out of sight! The laundry room is shared with the apartment nextdoor, and has storage space for coats and shoes, as well as the usual laundry items (washing machine, tumble dryer, sink…). There is an additional cave accessed from the garden, perfect for storing not only skis and snowboards, but also bikes, a barbecue, garden furniture etc.
In terms of outside space, there is a good sized south-west facing garden, which is easy to maintain. With a set of swings and a picnic table, it’s perfect for family afternoons in the summer (and of course snowman building in the winter!).
The apartment is approximately 100m from the main ski lift and resort centre of la Grande Terche. The resort offers 4 bar/restaurants, a takeaway, a supermarket and a couple of ski shops. There is also a small open-air ice rink, perfect for keeping the kids entertained whilst you enjoy a mulled wine!
The ski area in this friendly resort offers around 60km of unspoilt skiing for all abilities, and the internationally renowned resort of Morzine is only 10 minutes away by car, offering full access to the Portes du Soleil skiing domain.
The property is covered by the copropriété rules.
