Amazing modern house and separate apartment with views over ski pistes of Briancon.
Double garage and very low cost heating system.
This vast modern house on 5 different levels has 5 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a separate 1 bedroom apartment. It really has to be seen to be fully appreciated.
Built in the early 80s this cleverly designed house has its own independent heating system that takes advantage of its south-facing aspect in an area that attests to having 300 days of sunshine per year. Large glass panels on the south side of the building heat air in a ducting system that is then fed in to the house. There is also a free standing wood burner in the main lounge as well as electric radiators for back-up.
On the ground floor is a recently renovated 1 bed apartment that can be rented out as a separate unit for around 400 € per month. It has been rebuilt to a very high standard with quality fixtures and fittings.
The rest of the house is on a further 4 levels each having an element of privacy from the rest of the house. The main living area / dining room is on 2 levels with large sliding doors leading out to the south facing balcony and views over Briancon and ski pistes.
There is a vast double garage and private parking for 2 cars.
This property has been successfully rented out seasonally netting a great return for the winter.
Briancon is the highest town in Europe and part of the Serre Chevalier ski domain, the 3rd largest ski resort in France. It is situated at the northern part of the southern alps just next to the Italian border and has always been an important strategical and geographical area of the entire french alps.
Recently parts of the “Old Town” and its surrounding fortifications have been included in the UNESCO world heritage list. The historical importance of the whole area are evident in the medieval cobbled streets and ramparts that now welcome tourists to their numerous restaurants, shops and bars.
Serre Chevalier and Briancon have a busy summer tourist trade made popular by the Tour De France and the many sporting events taking place here.
The ski domain borders the enormous Ecrin National Park which welcomes nature lovers from all over the world.
