    Chalet des Lupins was built 12 years ago in a traditional chalet style with a contemporary feel including double height living space to take advantage of the wonderful views.

    The main entrance is at garden level with a double height hallway, opening into a light and airy living area with log burner. The open plan space leads to the dining area and kitchen, with breakfast bar and walk-in larder with plenty of storage. Double height windows give fabulous views of the Bossons glacier, Aiguille du Midi and Mont Blanc itself. Sliding glass doors open onto a large deck and onto a mature, level garden. There is also a separate WC at this level.

    On the first floor there are 2 bedrooms, one with a balcony with views of Brévent, the other overlooking the garden plus a family bathroom.

    There is a 2nd entrance on the drive level. This opens into a hallway with storage cupboards for coats, boots etc. There are 2 bedrooms at this level, one with an ensuite shower room and the master with a large ensuite with stand alone bath and large shower. There is another room at this level with washer/dryer, additional freezer, storage cupboards and presently used as a gym and occasional 5th bedroom.

    The driveway is tarmaced, making snow clearing easy. It is shared with the adjacent chalet and has external parking for 2/3 cars per chalet plus a garage with an additional mezzanine storage area.

    The chalet is equipped with solar panels, providing a steady income from ERDF.

    Our opinion
    A rare opportunity to buy a spacious, family chalet in excellent condition. There are so few on the market that tick so many boxes - modern, double height living space, fabulous views, good sized level garden, large terrace, garage, plenty of storage, easily walkable to town and convenient for many amenities.

    For a second home/investment, there is a proven rental income from the neighbouring chalet, which is a similar size and configuration.

    The chalet is located in the popular and well-placed "les Favrands" area, just to the west of Chamonix centre. It is a pleasant, flat, 15 minute walk to the town square, 7-8 minutes to the edge of town.

    The chalet is easily walkable (500 metres, 5 minutes) to the supermarket, bakery, pharmacy and new butchers at les Pelerins. The town's main bakery, la Fournil Chamoniard, is a similar distance as are two schools, Jeanne d'Arc and Jacques Balmat.

    For public transport, the main Chamonix bus stop, giving free access to all the slopes, is 700 metres away. It is also the drop-off for airport transfer companies such as easyBus and SAT. The nearest train station is at les Moussoux, 5 minutes walk from the chalet.
