This ski chalet has been thoughtfully designed, firstly by the architect who has made the best of a wonderful location and secondly by the owners who have demonstrated great taste and have personally sourced everything to ensure the best quality from the wonderful stone or oak floors and quality tiles in the bathrooms through to the colour scheme of each room. Every bedroom and bathroom is different with its own character and decor.
The kitchen is a modern masterpiece of convenience and practicality meeting smooth lines and glossy finish and somehow blends seamlessly with the more traditional feel of the dining area and living space with open chimney, comfy and sociable seating. The whole area has a feeling of warmth and is obviously designed with friends and family in mind, above all it is a home and you feel instantly comfortable and welcome. With large windows throughout this living area the views are brought into the chalet and you can also take a couple of paces to the Jacuzzi which is positioned for privacy and views.
There is also a library/TV room, a sauna, a boot and ski room, laundry and storage. Plus a spacious mezzanine that can provide extra sleeping or a great space for an office. With great attention to detail the architect has designed a wonderful place to be both summer and winter. From here all the seasons are enhanced and the wonderful variety of this world-famous town is there to be enjoyed. The private drive leads to covered parking or exterior parking with a large attic, currently used for storage above. As if this wasn't enough there is also planning permission in place for an extension of 320m2 should you wish to extend this already stunning ski chalet.
