Conveniently located in the heart of Saint-Martin-de-Belleville, this renovated barn with bespoke finishes is just a five-minute walk away from the village square.
There you can find the Baroque church, various shops open all year round, restaurants and the snow front and ski lift giving direct access to the largest ski area in the world: the Three Valleys.
The ski properties
The philosophy of this renovation is to enhance local heritage by conserving and restoring the soul of mountain architecture and to bring a touch of modernity and innovation with the desire to create a respectful connection between the past and the present. Made of local stone, old wood and slate, the traditional facade will be preserved. The roof will be replaced and improved without compromising on the historic style. Enhanced with large windows facing south, making the most out of the natural light and the panoramic views over the surrounding mountains, the living spaces in La Bergerie are a pleasure to spend time in.
Spread over 232 sqm on four levels, the chalet is composed of six bedrooms including one dormitory. All of them come with en-suite bathrooms. But what makes this chalet so exciting is the living room in the attic with its fireplace, open-plan kitchen, and dining room. Expect abundant light and spacious living with high ceilings. It has large panoramic windows open to the surrounding mountain landscape. The main wall of this room is oriented to the southwest, making it a perfect exposure for the evening sunshine and the magnificent view of the snow-capped peaks.
Another important asset is the very beautiful vaults of the ground floor that have been preserved to recall the history and the originality of the house. Lots of balconies and a terrace are located on all levels for you to enjoy the fresh alpine air. A ski room, a cellar, three parking spaces and an additional, smaller living room complement this property.
Thanks to its authentic charm and access to the Three Valleys ski domain, properties in Saint-Martin-de-Belleville are incredibly sought-after and the resort is gaining more traction year on year. Opportunities to own a new property are few and far between in the picturesque village of Saint-Martin-de-Belleville, and projects with a good location and excellent finishes like this one sell quickly.
Because this chalet is a heavily renovated building, it benefits from all the advantages of buying a new-build property. This includes the possibility to reclaim the 20% VAT off the property price if you decide to rent it out when unoccupied. This equates to a saving of around €498,000. You will also benefit from reduced notary fees at 2% instead of the usual 7-8% for existing properties.
"Located in Saint-Martin-de-Belleville, in the Villarencel area of the village, La Bergerie is central, in a convenient location to get the most out of your time here. Properties like this don’t stay on the market long so we recommend visiting as soon as possible.”
