About the Property
An exceptionally exciting opportunity. A superb renovated Farmhouse (with 4 spacious bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 2 large reception rooms) plus 3 adjoining one-bedroom apartments in a beautiful low maintenance garden. Currently a well established self-catering business alongside a family home, the package offers really versatile accommodation in a simply stunning location - next to the pistes, in the heart of a Chamonix valley ski resort and vibrant summer destination. Overlooking the Mont Blanc mountain range and totally private, yet within easy walking distance to cable cars and a variety of restaurants, bars and shops (including a wonderful boulangerie just 200m away!). A truly rare find: characterful, versatile accommodation with extensive grounds in an exceptionally beautiful and private setting.
For the new owner, there is an enormous range of options for this property. There are 3 cellars and an enormous loft space which could be developed (remaining SHON of over 80m2). Alternatively there is room to build a second property in the grounds. The apartments (currently run as a profitable self-catering business) could remain privately accessed or they could easily be incorporated into the main house to make one large family home or weekend retreat.
