Luxury Chalet Brickell in Megève, Alpes
Luxury Chalet Brickell located in Megève, Alpes. In the midst of a buzzing town, this haven of peace reveals all its splendour. The purity and silence of a blanket of snow, warmed by the light of the winter sun, set the tone… At Brickell, time takes a more leisurely pace and well-being finds a home.
The staircase, like a modern drawbridge, allows access to the large living room. The transparent blend of metal, glass and steel elegantly complements the warm harmonies of antique woods. Pure lines create a comfort that is absolute simplicity. The overall effect is one of a neutral, modest, welcoming refinement that makes the perfect setting for works of art or original shots by renowned photographers.
The indoor pool looks onto the garden and benefits from the natural light. To protect privacy, specially designed curtains can be drawn across the large windows – a little like the Hollywood of the fifties. Bed loungers, along with a teak floor like the deck of a yacht, give the feel of a relaxing cruise.
Master bedroom. Meticulously executed finishing touches and exquisite attention to detail make this space a true haven of well-being. The master bedroom owes its beauty to the skills of Italian craftsmen, specialised in the construction of yachts. Walls made of wood meet an oak floor covered with thick rugs, while shagreen leather frames the doorway. Cut-velvet panels line the wall and ceiling, like a «canopy» above the bed, which is covered with a fur bedspread. Heavy drapes and an enveloping easy chair create a cosy reading corner. Here, you feel cocooned. Taupe leathers adorn the easy chair and leather-covered sliding doors open onto the marble bathroom, where two identical Japanese-style shower rooms face each other.
Golden bedroom. Antique wood and a Fortuny-inspired pleated headboard set the tone in the room with gold-coloured quilted curtains. Like a plush bedspread, a large fur blanket covers the bed, which is fitted with sheets with touches of gold for a gold room.
White bedroom. Leather-panelled walls match the headboard, in shades of taupe that accentuate the whiteness of the bed linens and accessories. Fur adds a touch of warmth.
he huge garage in the basement links the main chalet and the guest house. From here, the leisure rooms can be accessed. A showcase for car collectors or enthusiasts, it has been designed to house 4x4s, racing cars and also elegant limousines, with a focus on aesthetics and rigour. The floor has a «granular» surface, the central axis features the colours of Brickell, while the walls display the fastest and most famous racing drivers, with Steve McQueen in top position.
