FREE GUIDE INCLUDEDTop 10 Tips for Buying Property
This delightful chalet is the lowest in a hamlet of 6 buildings at 980m altitude. Facing South East it has plenty of sunlight and uninterrupted views of the mountains.Deceptively spacious inside, the front door opens from the terrace into a living dining area (20m2) with a kitchenette and wood burning stove. Some steps lead to a small corridor with storage, the first bedroom and stairs to the next level. The first floor has two completed bedrooms, a shower room and a third bedroom, which needs finishing (including a mezzanine with a velux window). Also on this level there is a large living room to be finished which has a huge fireplace, is open to the rafters and has access to the rear of the chalet.The plot of land slopes away in front of the property, the trees have been felled ready for firewood. There is electricity and a septic tank, the water has to be collected from a local source. There is currently no heating system for the water.Most of the furniture will be left along with remaining building materials. Obviously a holiday (rather than a permanent) home it is nonetheless ready to move into.The property is located 2.5km from the village of Vailly (which has a couple of bar/restaurants, shops and a school). The road is mainly tarmac, with the last 900m a gravel track. Many of the neighbours leave a small 4x4 parked ready to drive the last 200m as it is quite steep.From the village of Vailly it is 20mins drive to Thonon-les-Bains and the shores of Lac Leman, the nearby village of Lullin (2.5km) has a chemist, doctor and more shops. The nearest skiing is at Hirmentaz (6mins drive from Vailly), but many larger resorts would be accessed under the hour, such as Les Portes du Soleil 30mins.
