Amazingly preserved, this enchanting little farmhouse offers a sympathetic renovator an amazing opportunity. The lower floor has an apartment which offers a glimpse into the past, with character features at every turn, including panelled ceilings, original bread oven (still working) and hand-crafted old wood doors. The barn above is in a virgin state, but could offer an amazing living space, with balcony and mountain views. One to visit.

  • Externally
    Just a short step away from the centre of Les Carroz, the farm is accessed up a gravel track. It is surrounded by it's own grounds, and there is a private spring, which feeds a trough at the entrance. There is also an old 'mazot' in the grounds, which is currently used more as a shed, but could be adapted for further use.

  • Ground Floor Apartment
    The main apartment, on the lower floor, is accessed through a magnificent old door (with even more impressive key). The outside is beautifully maintained, and the cobbled pavement outside adds to the original charm. Once inside, the entrance hall boasts a settle, as well as an original bread oven. Still working, this could be used to cook even today - and would perfect any home-made pizza! Beyond the entrance hall is a kitchen diner, and beyond that a sitting room. The kitchen diner has a corner bathroom, but this is in need of improvement. Across the way are two inter-connected bedrooms: both a good size, but it may be necessary to re-configure to maximise their use.

  • The Barn
    The upper floor of the property has an amazing potential. Not too large to threaten (as many farmhouses are), it is perfectly proportioned to allow the imagination to run riot. Certainly, there is plenty of room to create an open plan living space, with perhaps two or even three bedrooms. There is a centrally located old wood 'coned' chimney, into which the bread oven feeds - but this could be adapted to allow an open fire. There is a balcony, overlooking the mountains to the front of the property. Ultimately, the property provides an opportunity to perhaps unify the two parts, allowing a staircase between the lower apartment and the barn above. Lots to feed the imagination. Lovers of original character only, please!
