All the apartments at the White Pearl Chamonix will boast spacious interiors opening up onto generous terraces to admire the views on Mont Blanc or the Brévens.
An interior designer will propose four different interior ambiences to future owners (interior design firm Studio Arch, they will also undertake the decoration of common areas). The building front is fitted with large bay windows leading to terraces from the living room. A dwelling for full-time living with unique views to the Mont-Blanc and the Brévent peaks. The apartments are sold with a private closed garage (double for two cars for most apartments and some parking units for the smaller units), a cave for storage (for bigger apartments) and a ski locker (spacious ski room on the ground floor with 53sqm). You may be able to purchase extra parking unit or garage, mostly double. Most garages are double around 2m70 wide by an amazing 8m long (easy to partition to add a bike area or more ski storage for example).
Chalets A and B are built from new and chalet C a full renovation. The new-build certificate “NF Habitat” will be the minimal norm for these new buildings for better air and water quality, layouts of apartment surfaces and common areas, sound and thermal insulation.
