This 4 bedroom family house is warm and comforting with its soft white walls and light wood. Built by local Les Houches tradesmen in 2012, it is modern yet retains a sense of traditional house construction.The lounge is wooden clad and cosy with a woodburner that heats the whole house. In contrast to this, the conservatory is bright and open. The conservatory makes the most of the outdoors and the views, with it’s glass walls bringing the panoramic of the mountains into the house, and in the summer these walls open out onto the garden. And with a sun terrace on the floor above you have plenty of different options of where to lounge or to entertain.The kitchen is a good size with plenty of storage and there is the added bonus of the extra storage room and utility room upstairs.There are two separate bathrooms, one with a bath and one with a large walk in shower.There are 3 decent sized double bedrooms, one with large patio doors with breathtaking views of the valley and the mountains, as well as a fourth smaller bedroom, which is currently being used as a office. A fifth room which is used a dressing room at the moment could also work as a babies bedroom, toy room or office space.Outside is a mature mountain garden, with large shrubs and flowers and a flat barbecue area.Nestled in the garden amongst the trees and with a backdrop of the forest behind them, are two charming wooden built mazots. They each have a lounge and dining area with a small open kitchen and shower room, and balconies with stunning views of the mountains. Each mazot has a sleeping area on a mezzanine level, the larger one having two separate bedrooms. The owners rent out these mazots on a weekly basis in both the summer and the winter and have many guests who return each year.The house is in the Coupeau area of Les Houches, also known as the sunny side of the village, as it is slightly higher than the centre of the village the sun reaches the house all year round.Coupeau is a residential area, with houses and little lanes following the main route up to the top of the hill ‘Le Bettey’ and to the foot of the l’Aiguillette.Right outside the door are paths and trails for hiking through the forest and to the parc de Merlet, Aiguillette des Houches and up to Brevent. In the winter months some of these paths are designated snow shoe tracks. It is not unusual to see deer and chamois wandering through the houses and the trees.Les Houches, located 6 kilometres from Chamonix, is a family friendly ski resort with a domain which extends from an altitude of 950 metres up to 1900 metres. Long descents through tree-lined slopes are combined with impressive views of the Mont Blanc massif, the Bionassey glacier and the Chamonix valley. It is the first stop from the autoroute into the Chamonix Valley, just an hours easy drive from Geneva airport. It is just a further 10 minute drive into Chamonix itself or 15 minutes to Saint Gervais. Public transport is improving all the time with plenty of buses to and from Chamonix and the little mountain train that runs from St Gervais to Vallorcine and beyond into Switzerland.
