This beautiful traditional Savoyard house sits in a sunny and quiet area of the village of Montriond. Chez Marie is presented on a plot of 490m2, including a lovely flat garden which is perfect for children to play in, winter and summer. There are views in every direction, and the property gets plenty of sunshine all day long!
Chez Marie is very close to the free bus stop, so in no time you can be on the ski slopes at Ardent, with direct access to Avoriaz, Chatel, and Switzerland. Alternatively, hop on the bus heading in the opposite direction to explore the slopes of Morzine/Les Gets, or for a browse around the town!
Likewise in the summer, the Lac de Montriond, only a few minutes away, is a beautiful spot for a refreshing dip, a nature walk, or a leisurely lunch, and the mountain bike trails are all quickly and easily accessible! The centre of Montriond, with a handful of shops, bars and restaurants, is just a 5 minute walk away from the chalet.
Inside, Chez Marie is split into two very spacious self-contained apartments: a one bedroom apartment of around 75m2 on the ground floor, and a 2 bedroom apartment of about 80m2 on the second floor. There are a further 3 bedrooms and one bathroom on the top floor of the chalet, which currently serve as guest bedrooms for either apartment.
But the extent of this charming building does not end there! It would be possible to almost double the size of the current living accommodation by renovating the myriad barns, storage rooms, nooks and crannies! On the ground floor, there is a 40m2 gallery used by the owners to show off their beautiful artwork, a 40m2 garage, and three adjoining cellars. An area of unconverted barn on the first floor, plus a further 40m2 above the garage, opens up even more possibilities were the space to be renovated.
Our local architects will be delighted to discuss potential projects to make the most of this truly characterful property, and have provided basic cross-section plans to illustrate the existing lay-out and one or two renovation possibilities. The options open to the future owners of Chez Marie are many and varied, ranging from the creation of a large, stunning, family home, through extending and updating the existing living space, to even creating further apartments. In addition, for those with a larger budget and/or a project requiring more outside space, further constructible land totalling 350m2 adjoining the garden of Chez Marie is available at a price of €140,000.
Owning this historical building full of warmth and charm, whether transformed or enjoyed for its existing qualities, is sure to prove both an honour and an absolute pleasure!
