This exquisite penthouse apartment is the cherry on top of a recently completed chalet that stands out as the first building to be built in the exclusive hamlet of St. Christoph in the last 50 years.
Above and beyond this feat, the penthouse is a truly outstanding home that fuses, with absolute grace, new and old-world design, embraces texture and pattern, and delights in its attention to detail with bespoke furnishings and finishing’s throughout.
Set over two floors, the penthouse, is a true ski-in property, in fact, the unique design of the building means that it is literally set into the mountainside ensuring that returning skiers simply step inside off the slope. Alternatively, the penthouse is accessed by a lift from the ground floor bringing you directly into the apartment and to the same point as if you ski into the property.
The entrance area introduces you to the apartment’s continuous theme of rustic charm juxtaposed with contemporary flair. The walls are clad in a visually-stunning and unique design of wooden bricks. To your left is the ski and boot room where century-old re-purposed wood paneling and punchy art and furnishings make a statement. There is also a guest WC here. Beyond the boot room is a single staff bedroom with en-suite shower room. A short passageway leads into the living area or enter the kitchen to the right of the entrance.
The well-equipped kitchen is bright and tastefully completed with dark marble counter-tops and engaging contemporary artworks which adorn one wall. It leads into the dining area and there is the option for these two rooms to be divided by a glass-paneled sliding door, increasing guests’ privacy. The dining table seats ten around a gorgeous solid wood table.
Enter the living room through one of two doorways leading off the dining room. This simply gorgeous room draws guests in with its large open-fire place and offers ample seating in a large L-shaped sofa or one of two elegant arm chairs. The daylight pours into this room through the many windows; affording spectacular mountain views, but curtains drawn at night transform it into a sumptuous and cosy room in which to enjoy a glass of champagne and relive the day’s adventures.
A cinema with a large screen and Apple technology completes the lower floor.
A staircase at the entrance area leads to the sleeping quarters upstairs as well as the Hamman and sauna. The Hamman is a bold design of emerald green mosaic tiles and the sauna is greatly enhanced by the windows providing rejuvenating light and discrete views onto the pistes.
