Full Description

This lovely character property has tons of potential whilst retaining all the charm of centuries past. Located in a picturesque hillside location above Lake Annecy, it offers privacy and unobstructed views as far as the eye can see, as well as being only 8km from the main access to Geneva, lake Annecy and ski resorts.

The property's recent renovation has successfully achieved a contrasting blend of tradition and contemporary styles with the emphasis on light and volume, whilst simultaneously preserving all the original features of a 400 year old property using quality crafted alpine woods. Once the original cattle shed, the living room is now an open space of generous proportions and high ceilings, exposed oak beams and a large stone fireplace. The opens out onto the south-facing inner courtyard and gardens.

To the west side of the living room is the farmhouse kitchen. Bespoke units and large granite worktops blend in perfectly with the original stone walls and exposed beams. Adjacent to the kitchen is a further room, currently used as a library and art studio, also west facing, or 5th bedroom.

To the east side is the study, laundry room and downstairs cloakroom, which in view of its position and individual access from both the front and rear of the property from the terrace, could easily all be made into an ground-floor studio-apartment.

The second floor, although primarily dedicated to the sleeping quarters, has a winter sitting room/gallery with wood-burner, cathedral ceiling, exposed beams and tall glass panelled windows to admire the panorama of the lake Annecy, its town and surrounding valleys.

As well as four further bedrooms, two of which have en-suite bathrooms and a walk-in dressing room with fitted wardrobes, there is also a loft, yet to be renovated, and which could increase the existing floor area by a further 100m2 approximately.

The house is well insulated and centrally heated throughout, with solar panels providing an efficient heating and hot water system, with the added benefit of mountain spring water from the source.

Surrounded by a generous plot of land of semi-landscaped gardens, fields and woodland, it is secluded and an ideal home for those in search of authentic alpine living without the inconvenience of isolation. The village is only a a short distance away (2km) providing a supermarket, bar-restaurants, post office, doctor's surgery and primary school. Public transport also links to Annecy town centre and neighbouring villages.

In view of its notoriously dominant and rare position, this property will have you charmed.
