A substantial country house on the south-facing slopes above the Arve Valley. Rumoured to have been built for Napoleon III in 1850, the house has been carefully renovated to retain much of its original character and charm. With large windows, high ceilings and spacious rooms throughout, the house is bathed in light with French doors spilling onto the terrace and gardens.
In addition, the present owners have created 2 large, duplex apartments above the original stables which can be rented or used for guest accommodation. There is also a pigeonnerie in the grounds used for storage.
- Sizeable, 8 bedroom character property on a large plot of land
- Two separate duplex apartments plus garaging
- Numerous period features, high ceilings and large windows
- Wonderful, open views of the Arve Valley
- Easy access to A40 (Geneva) and several ski areas
Our opinionThis is a wonderful property, full of character with a real charm. Being just outside the main ski centres, the property (with the additional apartments) offers genuine value for a buyer looking for a large property without the sizeable budget required in the surrounding areas.
