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, SK11 is a truly outstanding home that fuses, with grace, new and old-world design, embraces texture and pattern, and delights in its attention to detail with bespoke furnishings and finishings throughout.
Set over two floors, the apartment 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 when 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 panelling and punchy art and furnishings make a statement. Beyond the boot room is a single staff bedroom with en-suite shower room.
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-panelled sliding door, increasing guests’ privacy.
Enter the living room through one of two doorways leading off the dining room. The daylight pours into this room through the many windows, affording spectacular mountain views.
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.
The penthouse’s four bedrooms are thoughtfully located at each corner of this floor, each affording views that mean no guest is disadvantaged. They are accessed by a corridor which forms an open quadrangle that looks down to the living area below. The first bedroom is a charming double bunk room with en-suite shower room, ideal for children. Next is the beautiful master bedroom which has a fixed king-sized bed and an en-suite bath and shower room with a roll-top bath and a rain shower and double sinks. The third bedroom has a fixed king-size bed and en-suite bathroom, while the fourth bedroom is a fixed twin room with en-suite bathroom and windows looking down to the ski hill. All rooms have built-in cupboards.
