Richard Deans of MGM French Properties comments, “The apartment is just spectacular and will make the perfect statement purchase for a keen skier. Our five-star residence has been created to meet increasing demand among our clientele for an even higher standard of property, and the penthouse home takes this to the next level. The opportunity to buy outright in this highly desirable area is getting increasingly rare, and with the opportunity for the owner to rent the apartment through MGM, the individual who purchases here really will get the best of both worlds.”
The unique appeal of The Penthouse at Cristal de Jade is the ability to purchase the apartment outright or with a rental agreement, which would allow the buyer to claim back €500,000 in VAT. MGM French Properties would then rent out the penthouse during the weeks it is not in use, with the owners receiving 60% of the rental income.
The turn-key apartment has been designed to reflect the rustic origins of Chamonix, following the traditional Savoyard chalet style. Key features include light-filled open-plan rooms, with rustic decor, including natural wood and dry stone. The stone accent walls, bucolic fireplaces and exposed wooden beams create a warm and relaxing atmosphere.
The kitchen and dining rooms are open-plan, custom fitted and complete with integrated appliances and breakfast bar. Each bathroom is designed in a wet-room style, with spacious showers, deep baths and whole-slab granite sinks.
Located in an enviable position, Le Cristal de Jade is based at the bottom of the renowned Aiguille du Midi, Europe’s highest cable car, making it the prime destination for skiing enthusiasts. The development is also a short walk to Chamonix town centre, which provides a wealth of ski shops, high-end fashion outlets and fine dining restaurants.
