Spacious chalet in residential area, less than 1 km from ski lift. NO CARBON FOOTPRINT !!
This bright, modern chalet was built in 2000 to a very high standard using quality insulation techniques and energy saving heating systems…
It was built on a geo thermic underground water heating system which works with the solar panels on the roof meaning that the current owners have free hot water and electricityOn the ground floor is a vast 50 m2 tiled floor garage with storage space. There is a connecting door to the downstairs apartment which can also be accessed by a stairway from upstairs.
The apartment has a bright open plan kitchen / lounge with plenty of cupboard space. There is a separate shower / w.c and a double bedroom at the back.
Upstairs, the main living area is a voluminous open plan family area comprising lounge / dining / kitchen spaces… There is an open fireplace and 3 wide bay windows that open on to the south east facing terrace and lawned garden. The kitchen is fully equipped and has underfloor heating like the rest of this floor.
There is a shower room and separate w.c. on this level as well as a double bedroom with a large built in cupboard.
On the 1st floor is a grand landing space from which the virtual tour shows you the layout of the bedrooms. The main bathroom has a corner tub and a spacious shower unit.
The master bedroom has a balcony that over looks the town, and an upper mezzanine which could make an office or TV space.
There are two other double bedrooms which each have a door leading out on to the shared balcony.
There is also another mezzanine space which is a dormitory area with 3 single beds.
The current owners usually rent out the chalet in the peak weeks of the ski season and for some of the summer holidays. They just move themselves downstairs for this time and are able to make a sizeable income for their inconvenience….
This is a stunning property that would make a fabulous family home or rental property. It is in pristine condition and very easy to manage.
The chalet is located in a residential part of Briancon Town, less than 1 km from the Prorel Ski lift.
( One can see the lift on the lead photo ) It is just 200 m from the main shopping centre and also close to bus stops that provide services up and down the Serre Chevalier Valley.
From the property we have a beautiful view of the Old Town and the surrounding fortifications. iIt is a short walk to the heart of the town where there is a wide choice bars, restaurants, shops and services.
Briancon is a buzzing little town which doesn’t close up like other ski stations. There is an all year round life here which is very rare in the French Alps.
It is a great place to live all year round, with transport links, schools and hospitals providing everything one needs to enjoy the mountains 365 days a year !!
