Set in the heart of Les Alberts, we find this stunning restored property which could be either a fantastic family home, a rental property or even a cosy gite / guest house. It has been lovingly renovated and now offers comfortable repost in a traditional alpine setting. The property is in fact made up of two parts. The downstairs apartment which has it’s own separate entrance from the side and the main chalet which is entered by the front of the building. The apartment has a double bedroom, lounge / kitchen, bathroom/w.c and large entrance. This would make very adequate accommodation for someone hosting the larger part of the property. It would equally be a lovely rental with its bright interiors and vaulted ceilings. The main chalet has an entrance hall which leads in to the vast kitchen/ dining room. This has lovely original larch wood floors and large bay windows that open to the terrace in front of the building. The kitchen is open plan…. Fully equipped with an american bar/ counter separating it from the rest of the room. Downstairs is the extensive lounge which has beautiful vaulted ceilings and the original limestone central pillar which appears to hold the whole room together. There is also a wood burner in the corner. Also on this level is a wine store and the utilities room that houses the fuel burner that heats the water and the radiators throughout the house.
Upstairs from the dining room are a series on landings that lead to all of the seven double bedrooms, each of which has its own en suite shower room. The master bedroom however has a larger en suite with a beautiful free standing tub beside the window. The property comes with a large garage and sun deck beside the private parking area to the front of the building. This is a very comfortable chalet in a lovely village setting.
A VERY RARE OPPORTUNITY…..
Les Alberts is a truly beautiful little village situated at the foot of the Claree Valley. It’s location lends itself to lots of sunshine whilst still benefiting from stunning mountain views . It feels much less claustrophobic than many valley villages, with wide open spaces spreading out all round. The village is exactly half way between Briancon and Montgenevre. Less than 15 minutes in either direction to the ski lifts of both of these amazing ski domains. Montgenevre is part of one of the largest ski areas in the world, with over 400 kms of piste spread across the border in to Italy. Serre Chevalier is the vanguard ski station of the Southern Alps, having a high tree line, fabulous off-piste and very little queuing. The village is only 115 kms ( 1 hour 15 mins ) from Turin International Airport, and just 30 kms (40 minutes ) from Oulx TGV which runs services to Lyon and Paris.
