Property DescriptionThe Property…. Situated by the entrance of the historic Briancon Old Town is this character property which already is earning good income after the first apartment was renovated. This is not even one quarter of the total habitable space, with many possible options available to the new owner. The house is at least 200 years old and composes 4 distinct areas, though they can be connected and reconfigured in different ways. The main entrance is on the ground floor which leads in to a large entrance hall and vaulted room which needs renovating. Up the spiralling wooden staircase we come to the kitchen / dining room which is perfectly habitable but could be modernised. The next level up is another vast room with it’s own kitchen and bathroom and this could also be made in to a separate unit. This space has large windows that look out to the Town’s ramparts. Up again and we come to the loft space which is vast. This will make either 2 units or 1 very big Town property as it rises up under the apex of the building and would cover 2 floors. From the front of the building we can enter the renovated apartment which has been beautifully transformed in to a 1 bedroom rental property that already yields an impressive income ( enqs welcome ). The owners kept much of the character of the property with the wooden floors and panelled features but have also given a sharp modern touch to the kitchen and bathrooms. This property will make an exciting project and is certain to reward it’s owners with good holiday let returns. The Area……… Briancon Old Town is slowly but surely being transformed in to a popular tourist destination and it’s easy to see why. There is no where else in the French Alps where such history and beauty can be seen whilst being part of a major ski resort. Briancon is part of the Serre Chevalier ski domain, one of the largest stand alone resorts in France with over 250 kms of groomed piste. The town is right on the Italian border and very popular with tourists both summer and winter. 10 years ago it was added to the UNESCO world heritage list and since then money has been spent on maintaining the city walls as well as the numerous fortifications that surround the town. There are regular buses to the ski lifts from the Old Town, and transport links to the TGV station in Oulx ( 45 minutes drive ) and to Turin airport.
Serre Chevalier Ski Area
This “jewel in the crown” is one of the best kept secrets in the southern alps. Here the high tree line coupled with amazing off piste make it an all-round ski paradise. Unlike many other mountain resorts, The Serre Chevalier Valley is made up of many villages and hamlets as well as the town of Briancon, the highest town in France.
Monetier Les Bains, the highest of the villages ,has a typical alpine atmosphere as well as having the beautiful open air spa baths. Here you can relax after a hard days ski and enjoy the magnificent views of the hanging glacier and snow capped peaks.
Serre Chevalier isn't a purpose built resort and as such is an ideal place to consider having an alpine home with all of the facilities associated with normal living – transport, education and shops. At the same time this amazing resort is only a few kms away from hidden valleys, high mountain pastures and the vast Ecrin national park.
Transport to Serre Chevalier is much easier than before with regular flights to both Grenoble and Turin airports.
