Property Description

This large imposing house for sale in St Jean d’Aulps dating back to 1714 was once the region’s jail, courthouse and police station and was where a gunpowder plot was successfully masterminded. It was renovated 200 years ago using stolen stone from the enemy's demolished Abbey and has subsequently housed a restaurant, a tabac and a village shop and has also been a working farm. Many of the building’s original features remain today.

The current refurbishment offers over 350m2 habitable space and still has an attic that could be converted. Steeped in local history it is in a prominent position on a square and overlooks Mont Evian, the village of St Jean D’Aulps and the mountains beyond.

It is on the free ski bus route up to the local ski station of La Grande Terche and it’s only a 10 minute drive (8km) to access the slopes of Morzine/Avoriaz and the rest of the Portes du Soleil domain.
