A dream come true for the Müllers
The Müller* couple had been dreaming of a luxurious home in the mountains. They are avid skiers and golfers, so they were naturally interested in Andermatt and the growing tourism resort, especially with the extensive expansion of the ski area. Because they also both like to enjoy the comforts of a hotel, they asked André Laubach, Senior Key Account Manager at Andermatt Swiss Alps AG, about the Penthouses in The Chedi Andermatt hotel. “I always start with a personal talk, to find out exactly what the prospective customers want and need. The Müller couple wanted an individual penthouse with a master bedroom and two guest rooms. Adding the bathrooms, the living room and the kitchen, we then decided on a size of approximately 300 m2. Thus the bedrooms could be generously sized, with the living room and kitchen also offering ample space”, explains André Laubach.
The exclusive Penthouses in The Chedi Andermatt range in size from 189 m2 to 616 m2 and include both one- and two-storey units. So that they can be finished as each individual buyer wishes, they have been built as ‘core & shell’. “There are still four Penthouses available in the main building of The Chedi Andermatt and three in the adjacent Residence buildings. All the floorplans and orientations of the apartments are different, but of course all the Penthouses are on the top floor and have at least one large glazed wall.” The prices start at CHF 4.2 million, plus finishing costs.
“The Müller couple chose an interior design style that is very similar to that of the hotel – alpine chic with Asian elements. This has the additional advantage that they can rent out their Penthouse through the hotel when they are away.” In collaboration with the architects commissioned by the Müller couple, the design was converted into reality. Building within a fully operational hotel entails a number of challenges. “That’s why we always handle the overall coordination”, adds André Laubach.
A year later – this spring – the Müllers moved into their penthouse. Their dream has come true! It’s the very special privileges that the Müllers appreciate most: “We have our own four walls, our privacy, all yet all the services of the 5-star deluxe hotel. For example, we can use the spa facility, or for business meetings the boardroom. If a number of friends come here, we can simply book a suite in the hotel. When we are away, our property is looked after. And we greatly appreciate the fact that Andermatt can be reached so quickly and easily by car and by public transport.”
