FREE GUIDE INCLUDEDTop 10 Tips for Buying Property
In a peaceful setting next to a wooded area and with the sound of running water from the mountain stream, this Swedish chalet, built in 2009, perches on the mountainside at the end of a no through road in a quiet hamlet 5km outside of the resort of Les Carroz.The chalet has been well conceived, with low electricity bills (c.1,200 per annum) which includes heating. It is triple glazed, has underfloor heating downstairs, a double ventilation system to prevent condensation, optimal insulation in walls and floors for retaining heat and sound proofing, and toughened windows so no need for shutters. Apart from the foundations, it is made entirely of classified wood from Sweden. The pipework for a central vacuum cleaning facility has been installed.In order to conform with planning permission, any buyer would have to build at least a one car carport (c.6,000) or a garage. For anyone keen on adding their own touch, a small part of the upstairs has not been finished although the materials are all available (estimated cost to finish is c.10,000).The chalet sits on c.900m2 of flat land. It has a wooden terrace with access to the vide sanitaire under the building which covers the entire footprint. This is perfect for storage, including wine! The ground floor comprises an entrance hall, separate toilet, kitchen open onto the dining area/lounge with log burner, a laundry room, family bathroom, and 2 bedrooms, one with dressing room. The top floor comprises 2 further large bedrooms and the unfinished area where there is space for a large cupboard at the top of the stairs, a further bathroom and sitting/tv area or possible further bedroom.There is further storage space in the attractive large shed in the garden.
