Ferme Beauceron offers a slice of tranquil mountain life, perched above the Morzine valley in the heart of the Portes du Soleil. If you are seeking a quiet mountain retreat but also yearn for world-class skiing and a lively nightlife a short hop away, then look no further!
Approached via a short track set back from the main road to Avoriaz, the property sits on a plot of approx 673m2. The farmhouse has its origins in the 18th century and has been partially renovated over the course of its history. The property is split over two floors, with the main accommodation on the ground floor, and a separate apartment above.
Entering via the main front door, the entrance hall leads on to a large open plan living space that sprawls from one end of the house to the other. A hearty kitchen and informal dining area for casual meals is the heart of the home, leading on to a cosy seating area around the fire, and separate dining area large enough for dinner parties or festive Christmas gatherings!
There are 3 double bedrooms on this floor, each well proportioned, and served by a family bathroom with bath-tub and wash-hand basin and a separate WC. The practical laundry room keeps the baskets of washing handily out of sight, and a cellar provides additional storage for skis, bikes and other sporting or garden paraphernalia.
Upstairs, around two-thirds of the floor space has been converted into a very spacious self-contained one bedroom apartment. Left as-is, this provides potential rental income in the form of a holiday let, or could serve as a guest suite for visiting friends and family. Alternatively, the installation of an internal staircase could see the apartment space connected to the ground floor to create a single family dwelling. The remainder of the top floor is an unconverted barn; likewise, this could also be transformed into habitable accommodation and incorporated into the main house, to create a fabulous family home.
Outside, there is a super south-facing terrace with wonderful sweeping views across the valley. The grounds of the farm are partially landscaped and fairly low maintenance, and there is parking for 3 cars. The ski slopes of Avoriaz are a few hundred metres away as the crow flies and, for the more able skier, accessible on skis with a bit of an off-piste dash! Otherwise, hop in the car to the Zore lift 1km up the road. The bright lights of the Avoriaz resort are just a few kilometres further up the road, and provide a wealth of amenities including a buzzing nightlife, supermarkets and assorted shops, bars and restaurants. An indoor waterpark is perfect for the family on wet days, and other leisure facilities such as tennis courts and a bowling alley, as well as all kinds of events throughout the summer and winter, mean that you can readily pepper the tranquility of Ferme Beauceron with entertaining activities whatever the season.
