place centrale DOUCY COMBELOUVIERE, 73260, France
This is an unusual property part habitable in a mountain village close to the Valmorel ski domaine. It is 7 minutes from the slopes of the Grand Domaine ski area and it has breathtaking views of the mountains.
There are 2 buildings, one habitable and one not and a spacious terrace area.
The habitable building is a village house of around 100m² on 2 levels.
The ground floor consists of an entrance into the living area (22m²) with a wood burner, a dining room (18.7m²), a small fitted kitchen with an adjacent bathroom and WC. There is also a utility room (7.3m²) that can be accessed from the bathroom and the yard.
The first floor is reached from the staircase in the dining room or from an external staircase in the yard. There are 5 bedrooms on this floor of rough sizes 9m², 10m², 15m², 8m² and 6m². Only two are currently in use with the other 3 being used for storage purposes at the moment. There is a shower room and WC on this floor too.
The balcony runs along the south-facing side of the house and it has fabulous views of the mountainside.
The house also has a loft and a good-sized cellar (25m²).
The second building used to be commercial and is not considered habitable in its current state.
The ground floor consists of 2 large rooms (43.6m² and 30.5m²) that are used for storage purposes.
The first floor is approx. 77.8m² and is accessed from the roadside. It is currently used as a garage/workshop. There is a mezzanine floor under the eaves with a floor space of approx. 60m² but only 14.5m² can be considered habitable space (1.8m or more in height). It does have great views, though.
The house could do with fresh décor throughout and perhaps the space on the first floor could be re-imagined to make the most of the large overall floor area.
The other building requires a lot of refurbishment in general in order to make it habitable, but it does have a lot of potential.
The resort of Valmorel was built in the 1970’s across the Maurienne and Tarentaise valleys. It was built specifically to look and feel like a traditional mountain village and features a pedestrianised main street with hamlets gathered around it and along the lower slopes. It has more than 80 slopes with access to many more in the other Le Grand Domaine ski resorts. In all, Valmoral has 152km of downhill pistes and 20km of cross-country trails, ideal for off-piste skiing and snowboarding.
There are numerous cafes, bars and restaurants along the traffic-free main street, as well as a cinema and a nightclub.
Geneva, Lyon and Grenoble airports, all just a couple of hours away, serve the resort.
The A43 motorway is just 45 minutes away along the N90 main valley road. The TGV station is in Moûtiers, just 20 minutes away.
