Property overview

Positioned just metres from the piste with the whole valley lying at it's feet, this highly sought-after home towers more than two hundred metres above the resort.

And its ingenious architecture certainly takes full advantage of the fact. Giant swathes of glass are used to create a double-storey panoramic window, framed by age-old timber beams. It forms a spectacular centrepiece to the large, open plan living room, and is complemented by a rough-hewn local stone fireplace, an exposed wooden ceiling and floating staircase in solid oak, which leads up to a gallery housing the master suite.

Step outside onto the giant terrace and you are immediately at one with nature, floating, bird-like, over the rooftops below. At its centre sits a sunken wooden hot tub, protected from the elements by a frameless glass screen. This picture window looks out over the lofty peaks of the surrounding Massif, plunging precipitously towards the valley beneath.

The décor is slick, yet authentic. A handcrafted wooden kitchen, topped in granite, features an Alpine tiled mural and a range of stylish fittings; while an adjacent bar area and dining room provide ample space for entertaining.

The magnificent 40 square metre master suite features a dramatic exposed beam vaulted ceiling, two walk-in wardrobes and a state of the art marble bathroom boasting mountain views through its roof top windows. A steam room with built in sound system completes the offering, which comprises a total of four bedrooms, laid out across four floors.

Regional info

Verbier. A Home in the Valais.
 
The beautiful mountain resort of Verbier in the Four Valleys is the in-place for homeowners who want to ski hard and party harder. Verbier mixes up picture-pretty wooden chalets and contemporary penthouses, refined clubs and joyfully edgy new hotels: check out how magnificently The W Hotel has transformed the Medran lift station.
 
Verbier is a true year-round resort with hiking trails, mountain bike paths and a packed sporting and cultural calendar for the summer. In winter however it is above the village on Verbier’s highly prized steep slopes that the real daytime action happens.
 
This is Switzerland’s largest ski area, a proper, hard-wired Alpine resort where a south-facing bowl provides a satisfying tangle of blue and red pistes, several infamous black runs and unforgettable off-piste skiing. Descend the legendary Bec des Rosses, free ride through the Vallon d’Arby or ski as a family on the forgiving slopes through the trees to La Tzoumaz.
 
As night falls the focus moves into the village centre. Après-ski evenings often start at Hotel Farinet, Mont Fort Pub or Le Rouge and end at the Casbah or legendary Farm Club where royalty and celebrities party with seasonaires.
Savoleyre – Sonalon.
 
Sonalon is the highest part of Verbier where the exceptional mountain and village views are as supersized as the exclusive chalets. Owners here expect supreme comfort and the very latest technology in their homes. Sonalon is quiet and benefits from its own access to the slopes via the Savoleyre gondola.

Buyers guide

How To Buy in Switzerland:
 
The purchase process in Switzerland is straightforward and well structured. However Switzerland imposes restrictions on who can purchase property with the precise rules differing between regions and sometimes between neighbouring resorts.
 
In general non-Swiss nationals who want to buy property in Switzerland must obtain a permit prior to any purchase. The two laws that concern the purchase of second homes are the Lex Koller, introduced in the 1980s as a way of limiting the number of second-homes allowed to be purchased by non-residents and the Lex Weber, introduced in 2012, limiting the supply of new second homes.
 
Under the Lex Koller foreign buyers are only permitted to own one property in Switzerland and they cannot resell their home within five years of purchase.
 
There are some of Switzerland’s 26 cantons (administrative areas) where only Swiss nationals or people holding a Permit B (long-term work permit) or a Permit C (a permanent residence permit) can buy. Many of the elite ski resorts and also the cities of Geneva and Zurich have severe restrictions. However special government legislation means that all new-build homes in Andermatt, most unusually, are free of any restrictions on non-Swiss owners.
 
To fully discuss purchasing options it is essential to consult a specialist.
