Thanks to the variety of options included in the purchase price, you can personalise your apartment according to your own tastes from a wide choice of tiles, flooring, and kitchen styles. In addition to base and wall units, each kitchen is equipped with a dish-washer, oven, hob, extractor fan, and fridge with freezer compartment. You can also choose from a wide range of kitchen worktops and splashbacks.
Each apartment has a large private balcony or terrace, with views across the valley - perfect for enjoying the tranquillity of the mountains over an evening aperitif or family meal. The exterior of the residence is an extremely attractive wood, natural stone and traditional plaster finish, paired with an aluminium trim for a modern, contemporary feel. Excellent quality materials will realise an elegant design that blends with the environment and will require minimal maintenance as you enjoy it for years to come!
On a practical note, a designated covered parking space and/or a garage is included in the price of every apartment, and additional visitor parking will also be provided. Each apartment also has its own cellar for ski and bike storage, as well as a separate ski locker. A lift from the underground car-park to all levels of the building ensures easy access to your apartment, making life that little bit easier, whether you are arriving with your suitcases or the weekly shopping, or wearily heading home after a hard day on the slopes!
Apartment A301-A is located on the top floor of Chalet A. Occupying the entire floor, this is a true penthouse apartment, with magnificent volumes and a total surface area of 127.5m2, plus an additional 55m2 under the eaves. It has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and two separate WCs. The master suite is a magnificent 26.5m2 + an additional 26.5m2 under 1.8m head-height and includes an en-suite shower room. With this abundance of space, it is easy to re-imagine the master bedroom as a family suite sleeping at least 4. There is a second double bedroom with walk-in storage and en-suite bathroom, and a third double bedroom with adjacent family bathroom with laundry facilities.
The kitchen is L-shaped and also has a substantial walk-in pantry providing bags of extra storage. The living space is very generously proportioned and makes the most of the wonderful views, and the cathedral ceilings give an airy feeling of space and wow-factor. Patio doors from the living area give access to the balcony, and a covered loggia provides extra outdoor space. The balcony has lovely views and is the perfect spot for an evening sundowner as the sun sets on the twinkling lights of the valley! Apartment A301-A is sold with plenty of additional storage in the form of a garage, a covered parking space, a cave and a ski locker.
The advantages of buying off-plan are numerous: new-builds purchases benefit from reduced stamp duty (approx 2.5% of purchase price instead of approx 7.5%), representing a significant saving. Payments are also staged throughout the build as work progresses, so you can spread the cost over a period of time. Finally, new-builds are covered by a number of guarantees, both financial and structural, so you are fully protected from the moment you sign the reservation contract, until 10 years after completion.
Naturally, buying new also means that the construction will be up to the latest environmental and insulation norms, ensuring that the property is inexpensive to run and kind to the planet.
Delivery of the lovely L’Op Traken residence is due in the second half of 2023.
