Chez Claude is located in the heart of sought-after Essert-la-Pierre, half way between St Jean d Aulps and Morzine. Dating back to 1824, this lovely old farmhouse has a lot to offer. The property is split in two, with a ground floor apartment with its own entrance, garage and terrace, and a first floor apartment, also with its own entrance, garage and terrace.
The ground floor apartment has an entrance hall, a cosy lounge with open fire and French windows leading on to the large south-facing courtyard, 2 double bedrooms, a bathroom, a utility area, a kitchen and a boiler room. The lounge and bedrooms have characterful panelled oak ceilings. The interior is somewhat dated and the kitchen in particular could benefit from an upgrade. Removing the internal wall between the kitchen and hallway would create a really super family kitchen/dining room, and make the most of the space.
On the ground floor, there is also a large double garage and a separate off-street parking space, as well as an attractive south-facing courtyard.
The apartment on the first floor is accessed via a back lane, and also has its own parking and single garage. There is a private entrance at this level. The layout upstairs is similar to the downstairs layout, with two double bedrooms, one bathroom, a kitchen, a cosy lounge and a storage room. Like the downstairs, the interior is a little outdated, but is cosy and welcoming. There is also access to the loft, which has plenty of head height, and could also be converted into living accommodation.
There are south and west facing balconies, and an outdoor terrace.
A thorough refurbishment could allow for this property to become one very large family home. Alternatively, leaving the property as two separate dwellings could offer a lot of flexibility.
