From a fairytale chalet in the Dolomites to an avant-garde architectural masterpiece in St. Moritz, we present five luxury residences in the heart of the great, snowy outdoors — all from Christie’s International Real Estate
This trophy residence in the legendary winter playground of St. Moritz (home to the 2017 Alpine World Ski Championships), is situated in one of the most exclusive residential buildings in the world — Chesa Futura, the unique bubble-like creation of Pritzker Prize-winning architect Sir Norman Foster. Set into the Corviglia hillside, the 5,920-square-foot, five-bedroom apartment opens to a huge terrace facing the village, the lake, and the surrounding Swiss Alps. St. Moritz’s world-class skiing and après ski are merely moments away.
This fairytale chalet facing the Brenta Dolomites provides a one-of-a-kind ski experience in the Italian winter resort of Madonna di Campiglio. Constructed with reclaimed pine and powered by solar panels, the three-story residence is both eco-friendly and luxurious. In addition to a ski room, the resort-style amenities include a wellness centre with hammam, sauna, and multi-sensory showers; a garden and entertaining terrace; and an eight-vehicle car park.
This luxurious mountain home is located on a private outcrop with one of the most spectacular views in the Rocky Mountains, minutes from the historic Old West town and top-ranked ski resort of Telluride. Defined by bold, linear architecture, Sunset Ridge has been artfully designed to frame dramatic mountain views from its expansive windows, balconies and terraces. The contemporary living spaces are perfect for grand-scale entertaining, with luxurious amenities and globally sourced décor and furnishings.
Perched on an 500-metre promontory above the Saint Lawrence River, this contemporary ski chalet in the Charlevoix region of Quebec is sited next to Le Massif, providing access to world-class skiing. Designed by Bourgeois Lechasseur, the modernist marvel has been featured in numerous publications including Architectural Digest, and won a 2014 Nobilis prize for its architecture. The striking three-level, cantilevered structure features an open-plan living area with floor-to-ceiling windows, numerous fireplaces and a swimming pool.
This idyllic ski lodge overlooking Mount Mansfield and Stowe Mountain Resort is minutes away from the historic village of Stowe. The four-bedroom log home is appointed with striking architectural details, fine wood finishes, and contemporary amenities throughout. Interior highlights include a luxurious master suite with a fireplace and a private balcony overlooking the mountains, plus a media room, heated garage, and a lower-level recreational area.
