Situated on a flat plot of 2500m2, in a quiet, small hamlet, about 10mins walk from the village of Bellevaux, this property offers scope for generous accommodation combined with plenty of original charm with features such as a stone mazot/grenier, 2 vaulted wine/cheese cellars.The farmhouse was last inhabited a couple of years ago and has been stripped down in preparation for renovation. There is electricity and running water but a septic tank will need to be installed. The footprint is about 230m², there is the possibility of 3 levels so this will give a potential floor area of about 550m². No planning permission would be required to renovate the ground floor (because it has been previously inhabited) but planning permission would be required to renovate the hayloft above.The farmhouse is on 3 levels, as follows:Lower ground floor: 2 large cellars; one originally used as a wine and cheese cellar and one for additional storage. Bathroom, storage areas and workshop.Ground floor: 115m2 of habitable floor space currently comprising a large kitchen, living room, a bedroom and an office/dressing room. There are already 3 external doors into the house at this level.First floor: a hayloft/barn with approximately 200m2, the beams are in perfect condition. With an apex height of 7m, it would be possible to create 2 floors in this area. There is one bedroom on this level accessed from below with a door opening into the barn.In addition to the main building, there is a stone mazot (small outhouse), this could be used for storage, or possibly also converted. There is a garage attached to the farmhouse and a covered parking bay for two vehicles.We can assist in helping you find an expert in farm renovations and/or an architect if required.The nearest skiing is Hirmentaz or Espace Roc dEnfer only 10mins drive, Ardent and Les Portes du Soleil 40mins away.
