Property Features

Property Description

This countryside house has been recently renovated and has a very inviting and colourful ambiance about it.
The layout of the down stairs area provides open plan living with large openings between the kitchen, dining room and lounge.. By summer the windows on both sides of the house let in plenty of light throughout the day.. with the front of the house benefitting from the sunset late into the evening. The shaded garden has various fruit trees and with a small amount of work will provide a nice outdoor seated area.
The comfortable downstairs bathroom has a bathtub and shower. Toilets on both floors provide convenience for all the family.
The centre piece of the lounge is the wood burning stove perfect for warming your feet after a walk or day on the mountain. The stove also provides heat for the whole house boosted by the oil fuelled boiler which ensures plenty of hot water for all.
A wooden staircase leads from the ground floor to the first, where the 3 bedrooms are neatly distributed with plenty of space. One of the rooms has a small balcony to the front of the house.
This house also has a large garage (with inspection pit for those budding mechanics) where the boiler and fuel tank is installed. It presents plenty of space for all storage needs and a dry area for all equipment, especially keeping the car free protected from the elements and snow.
Above the garage a large mezzanine has been created. The roof above completely restored and therefore this is begging to be converted into a further living space accessed from one of the bedrooms or separate cinema, kids area or dad zone!
The house requires a small amount of work to bring it back to life having been used as a secondary home in recent years. Attention to the garden, terrace and balcony outside. Internally some basic decorating to one room and boiler maintenance.
The small hamlet property has a septic tank, which will require conformity works within a year of purchase.
The village of Argentine is a traditional sleepy French village with Mairie, church and a junior school. Secondary school, shops and all other day to day amenities are only 10 minutes away in Aiguebelle or La Chambre. The village is close to all major access routes by train or car... just 10 minutes away.
The ski resort of Saint Francois de Longchamp is only 25 minutes by car and with 35 minutes you have access to the 3 vallees skis area via Orelle. A further 5 other ski resorts are only 45 minutes away not forgetting the Italian coast which can be reached in just 3 hours via the Frejus Tunnel.
This is a really fantastic and affordable opportunity for life in the French countryside.

Three Valleys Ski Area

A beautiful place all year with highly defined seasons and quiet and tranquil out of the ski season when the crowds have gone home, and then suddenly once again each winter the mountains of the Three Valleys come alive with people enjoying this vast ski area... The largest linked skiing in the world.

The Three Valleys ski domain provides more than 600km of runs and probably the same again off-piste. In fact it should now be called the Four Valleys with the link into Orelle (Maurienne Valley) which can be accessed by ski from Val Thorens. This has also opened up some extraordinary off-piste runs. The Three Valleys provides direct links between the ski resorts of St Martin de Belleville, Les Menuires, Val Thorens, Méribel, Mottaret, La Tania, Brides les Bains and the four Courchevel resorts, la Praz, 1550, 1650 and the world famous 1850 - and now Orelle, in the fourth valley - all under one ski pass offering on-piste skiing from 1300m all the way up to 3200m. As these figures show the Three Valleys ski area offers huge altitude differences favouring long run skiing.

It has an ultra efficient, state of the art ski lift system, quality piste preparation and a dense artificial snow making system (1920 snow cannons) complementing the excellent natural snow cover. However, if you are not a fan of downhill skiing or like some variety during your stay then you can also roam the domain at your leisure on foot, hiking along the marked trails, or using the pedestrian ski lift passes. Many trails have been created especially to enjoy the increasingly popular snowshoeing sport and to discover the valleys from a new perspective: flora, wildlife, monuments, and spectacular scenery. There are also many cross-country skiing tracks that are prepared and maintained each day. These allow you to take in the breathtaking scenery and provide the opportunity to appreciate the beauty of the mountains away from the pistes.

An interesting and wonderful area all year round, there is much more here than the snow sports.
