Chalet GenêtLes Houches, France


Property: Chalet
Status: FOR SALE
Energy Rating:D
Location: Les Houches
Price: €785,000
    A former forestry house which is well located between the Bellevue and Prarion lifts in Les Houches.

    The house dates from 1878 and is one of the original houses in the village. It was fully renovated in 2005 to take advantage of the original features.

    Entering via an external staircase, the first floor comprises three good sized bedrooms, each with their own ensuite bathroom, as well as a laundry cupboard and a guest WC.

    The second floor living area is a stunning mix of exposed traditional beams and modern finishes, with a fully equipped kitchen, a large living area and two balconies to the front and rear of the house with views of the valley and the slopes to the rear. There is also a mezzanine area which would be useful for additional guests.

    The house also benefits from a large cellar of approximately 30m² at ground floor level. The current owners have a double garage in the Grand Balcon development next door which is included in the sale.

    Our opinion
    This is a good renovation of a traditional house which would make a great family, or holiday, home.
