Equestrian farm with private stream in beautiful mountain setting
Price: € 1 150 000 | Ref.: 2243 | Views: 950
Tastefully renovated, fully-equipped equestrian farm overlooking mountains above and around with a magical vista from the terrace and gardens to the peaks of the Haute-Savoie beyond. The solid stone-built property, once a dairy-farm dating back to the 19th century is high on the mountain close to the ski station Orange above the historic town of La Roche-sur-Foron, founded in the 13th century. Superbly positioned for transport links with fast road connection to Geneva (30mins), the ski slopes of Mont Blanc as well as being a short drive to Annecy, the famous lakeside town that visitors find so evocative of Venice. With the huge numbers of holiday makers to the region, the farm is ideally placed for a variety of business opportunities. To date, it has enjoyed success as a popular Bed and Breakfast/Chambres d’Hôtes venue. This is a superb location not just for skiing and bob sleighing, but also for horse riding, hiking, mountain biking and fishing.
All in all a rare buying opportunity in the Haute-Savoie. It’s hard to find such a spacious mountain property for sale with a secluded position and unspoilt, stunning views.
The main stone farmhouse boasts a total living area of approx. 350 m2 and has four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a large attic room.
From the driveway entrance there are two spacious guest suites at one end of the house, one accessed from a garden path and the other by a wooden staircase and balcony above a spacious barn storage area with access to the front and rear gardens. These are currently used as gîtes and each have a bedroom and lounge areas and bathroom. Additionally there is a separate workshop and large garage, all opening onto the drive. The house entrance is from a pretty stone-flagged courtyard into a large open-plan area with kitchen and an adjacent dining room through a large archway. A corridor from the dining room has mirrored wardrobes and leads to separate laundry room, toilet, washroom and shower.
The kitchen extends to a large sitting room and a central built-in fireplace. French doors open from the far end of the sitting room into a conservatory with its own dining table and built-in wood burner. Sliding glass doors open onto a terrace at one end and a walled courtyard with a built in barbecue at the other.
A mountain stream tumbles through the lawned gardens and there is an attractive orchard terrace. The property, on 36,000 m2 of land, includes a riding area set in extensive fenced meadows with paddocks, a stable block for the horses with office and accommodation in two self-contained flats.
Each has a double bedroom and lounge with one flat having its own equipped kitchen area. Heating and hot water is provided by an electric boiler. The current owner used to school six horses for dressage.
The main house has full oil fired central heating and extensive double glazing. There is internet with wifi. Both gites have electric heating that keep them very warm during the winter.
