Ranging in size from 73m2 – 91m2 each home is available for outright purchase, with prices starting at €800,000.
- Located in the heart of Chamonix, this rare outright purchase opportunity comprises 4 2-bed apartments starting from €800,000
- 150 yards from picturesque Place du Balmat, where residents can benefit from wide range of restaurants and retail outlets
- 150 yards from Le Savoy drag lift, which takes residents to the peaks of the mountains within minutes
- Chamonix is also a great summer destination, perfect year-round for golf, cycling, watersports, parascending and mountaineering and hiking
The Villa de Jade development is perfectly located in the centre of town, just 150 yards from the Le Savoy drag lift, which provides quick access to some of Europe’s highest peaks, offering some of the finest vistas of the Alpine landscape. The apartments in this intimate development are fully-furnished and fitted with luxurious rustic-inspired interiors. Purchasers will also benefit from access to a ski locker and cellar.
The open plan-living spaces feature a fully-equipped kitchen, with old wood panelling throughout and copious amounts of storage space. The Scandi-inspired soft furnishings and throws exude comfort and create the perfect place to relax after a busy day on the slopes. Large west-facing windows make the apartment feel light, spacious and tranquil. Each apartment boasts its own west-facing terrace or balcony, with magnificent views onto Mont Blanc, Le Brevent and Chamonix Town. The ground floor apartment also features a 25m² private garden.
Each bedroom comes complete with an in-built wardrobe, oak parquet flooring and wood panelling, continuing the comforting rustic theme. The ensuite shower room and bathroom are fitted with heated towel rails, Hans Grohe taps and granite vanity units with mirrors. The shower room has a hairdryer and rainfall shower, while the bathroom also has a port for washing machine installation, with a spacious bath and integrated down lights to provide a relaxing atmosphere.
“This unique collection of homes are an exceptional opportunity for those that want the perfect Alpine retreat. The outright purchase availability will appeal to savvy purchasers looking for an alternative to a leaseback apartment. With such close proximity to the ski lift and fantastic views of the mountain scenery, Villa de Jade is already proving to be incredibly popular.”
The opportunity to purchase outright is incredibly valuable in the French property market, as owners can adapt the apartment according to taste, and manage their second home as they see fit. The rarity of sites available for development makes the choice to invest in the Alps a shrewd one, as properties there should see a strong capital appreciation over time.
All year round, Chamonix is a great holiday location for those who like the outdoors and mountain lifestyle. The increasingly upmarket town has retained its character, and bustles with locally-owned boutiques, restaurants and bars. Chamonix is known as a skiers’ paradise, but also offers a great deal to fans of golf, cycling, watersports, parascending and mountaineering, in addition to being a beautiful hiking spot in the summer months. Villa de Jade is just 150 yards from Chamonix’s main square, Place Balmat, where architecturally stunning buildings converge to create the old-style charm for which the town is famed.
The closest ski lift, Le Savoy, leads directly up to the peaks of Brévent-Flégère, at 2525m, which has 32 slopes, 7 black, 7 red, 13 blue and 4 green, ensuring that every ability is catered for. From Villa de Jade’s enviably central position, other ski lifts are easily accessible, including the famous Aiguille du Midi cable car and its unforgettable views.
