Architectural Spotlight | Enchanting Chalets
December 01, 2017 - France
Nestled into the sides of mountains, these often-snowy homes are also ideal for the ski-enthusiast, or simply someone wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of metropolitan life. Originating in Europe’s Alpine region, these wooden residences predominantly feature heavy, gently-sloping rooves and wide angular eaves showcased in the front of the structure. Time and cultural developments around skiing and hiking have transformed these one-time seasonal farm buildings into sought after landing pads during prime recreational periods in some of the world’s most sought after destinations.
Let’s discover three enchanting chalets from the Sotheby's International Realty® global network.
