Property DescriptionTucked into the hillside this property not only is already a comfortable and elegantly renovated home, but also has a large potential for further development if desired. On entering the kitchen through the oak stable door, you enter a traditional farmhouse kitchen that has been renovated with style, holding some of the original features but harmoniously surrounded by modern fittings. The lighting has been well placed to provide a very calm ambience and expose the quality of the kitchen installations. There's everything to hand for a modern kitchen... right through to wine chiller and oak flooring. A couple of steps up out of the kitchen takes you to a classic dining room with an impressive view out of the window across the valley. The wooden cladding and original parquet floor maintain the roots of this house. Daylight pours through the double doors from the large terrace into the living room and illuminates the space. By day you can relax comfortably in the sofa looking out to the terrace and valley and by evening you can enjoy the peace in front of the modern wood burner which is integral to the heating of the house. Taking the stairs from the living room up to the first floor you arrive on a modest sized landing which gives access to the 3 bedrooms, bathroom, toilet and shower. The elegant first bedroom is light and open with modern finishing, coving and lighting. The double balcony doors illuminate the room and offer an unbeatable view to wake up to in the morning. The second bedroom has equally, elegant finishing's and space for 2 single beds and a double in the current setup.. again with large double balcony doors looking out to the side of the property. The third bedroom is spacious with 2 traditional farmhouse beds harmonizing with the fittings from floor to ceiling and again double balcony doors. The bathroom has been renovated with style... modern sink, illuminated mirror... a real touch of class. A separate toilet and separate shower room complete this floor. The terrace looks out across the valley and is a wonderful sheltered sun trap. Perfect size for hosting aperos or bbq's as the evening plays its self out. Not only that but the quiet road in front of the property is frequented by the passage of the Tour de France giving a private viewing platform for race day. Above the first floor, and accessed by a small exterior pathway, a large roof space 85m2 lends a really great potential for a stunning renovation extension. Exposed beams and a crows nest view would surely create an unquestionably profitable addition to the property. Outside the livable area of the house there are 3 valuable caves and stores. The first, to the rear of the property, with a concrete floor perfect for ski storage and utility area. Below the dining room, accessed from the front of the property, a traditional cellar would in the past have been used as a cold room or wine store. The third cellar/cave below the terrace has a low opening but opens up into a very usable/accessible sized space. To the right of the main property the remains of an original annex to the house are evident and could be potentially regenerated. The house is heated by the log burner and electric radiators and connected to mains drainage. To the left of the house there is enough room to park two cars off road. Just 5 minutes from La Chambre you have access to all village services and a large superstore. One of the main autoroute junctions also connects just beyond La Chambre meaning you are well connected to all major transfer routes and local ski resorts. Chambery airport is only 35 minutes away and Lyon/ Geneva 1hr25. Even the Italian border can be reached in 40 minutes and the Italian coast in 2hrs 45 for a cultural beach weekend. If Saint Francois de Longchamp is not enough skiing then in just 25-30 minutes you by car you can ski... les Karellis, Sybelles ski area, Valloire or even 3 vallees via Orelle. This valley hosts some of the most picturesque skiing and alpine parks in France.. Lots of choice for every ability and envy, be it summer or winter mountain activity.
