This is a full renovation project in an excellent location. An old savoyard farmhouse over-looking the Vallée Verte, above the village of Habère-Poche and just 300 metres from the ski slopes.
According to its date stone the house was built 1668 which would make it one of the oldest buildings in the Vallee Verte. It is a conventional Savoyard construction of the time where the family lived on the sunny side of the building, the livestock at the back with their own entrance and a large hayloft above.
The ground floor has a kitchen, living room and bedroom all facing towards the valley view. Also there is the original stable, two cellars and steps up to an entrance level for the barn or hayloft. The hayloft has a floor area of approximately 180m2 with enough height for a mezzanine.
The land surrounds the building, there is a running water source and another outhouse or small barn with approximately 26m2 on two levels next to the farmhouse that would make a great summer house, extra accommodation or a small gite. Additional land may be purchased from the local town hall should this be of interest.
Not for the faint-hearted this property requires a profound renovation, but the opportunity to create a wonderful authentic Savoyard home is very real.
Electricity, water and mains drains need to be connected. The property backs (no windows or openings) onto the road that connects Habère-Poche to the nearby villages of Lullin and Bellevaux.
Situated just 1.5km from the village centre of Habère-Poche with its bar/restaurants and shops. This property is ideally placed at the head of la Vallée Verte between Thonon-les-Bains (and the lake-side 19km) and the centre of Geneva (35km). The nearest ski slope (Les Habères) is 300m away. Other local ski areas easy to drive to are the Roc d'Enfer circuit (15 mins) Le Massif des Brasses (15mins). Other larger resorts such as Sommand/Praz de Lys, Les Portes du Soleil, Le Grand Massif, St Gervais are 30/50mins drive.
