The market for overseas property may have peaked and troughed in the past five years, but one sector has been steadily increasing as a share of the market- ski properties.
According to the latest research by Savills and HomeAway.co.uk, of the UK owned holiday homes overseas, 9% of them are now ski properties, as more people see the lifestyle and financial benefits of owning a home on the piste.
Investors looking for a ski property with chocolate box credentials may want to consider the homes in Grindelwald, a swiss alpine village which developers GriwaTreuhand Ag have sensitively constructed to blend the traditional look of ski chalets with modern touches for the 21st century property hunter.
A spokesperson for the company said: “Grindelwald is renowned for its intact village character, which blends effortlessly into the Alpine landscape and awards all of our guests a holiday home feeling.”
A one bedroom apartment with year round access and rental potential, conveniently close to the village centre with wonderful views of the Eiger North Wall, can be purchased from £446,000. At the upper end of the market, a modern three bedroom apartment close to the Bodmi ski school slopes can be yours for £1,257,000.
