Iconic Properties : In Megève, the legendary “chalet de l’inconnu” is for sale.

A year and a half after its launch and four hotel houses acquired, renovated and operated in Provence, Hossegor and Courchevel, Iconic House announces the launch of Iconic Properties and its first property for sale : the Chalet de l’Inconnu, located in Megève, in the heart of the Mont d’Arbois domain, the legend of the “chalet de l’inconnu”.

At the dawn of the rise of winter sports in France, two visionary minds united to design an architectural masterpiece : “chalet de l’inconnu”.

One was Jean Walter, a Parisian architect recognized for his audacious and avant-garde genius, and the other, Henry Jacques Le Meilleur, inventor of the skier’s chalet and pioneer of mountain resorts, who had already engraved his name in the heart of Megève. Chalets Le Meilleur always meet the needs of a comfortable and sporty life, while adapting to the particular desires of its owners.

A four-handed chalet

In 1939, Walter and Le Meilleur, inspired by this vision, began to design a real Palace at Mont d’Arbois, overlooking the village of Megève. They fused Parisian chic with rustic mountain charm to create a home that combines elegance, functionality and comfort. Every detail, every beam, every stone…was chosen with care, reflecting the sponsors’ desire to have a one-of-a-kind chalet. Borrowing from the aesthetics of Alpine Baroque, with its ribbed vaults, its woodwork, its painted earthenware offered by the King of Morocco…

“Chalet de l’inconnu” reveals, among other things, a spectacular exterior entrance decorated with monumental frescoes painted by the famous artist Albert Decaris.

The Chalet of Domenica Walter, exceptional art collector Juliette Lacaze (1898-1977), nicknamed Domenica, was first married to the famous visionary art dealer and collector of impressionist works.

The rebirth of the “chalet de l’inconnu”

With the “chalet de l’inconnu”carrying a legendary history, the two founding brothers of Iconic House, Thibaud Elzière and Robin Michel, could not miss this opportunity or let anyone sacrifice the Chalet and its history. Associated with Antoine Pioger, founder of Maison Henry Jacques Le Meilleur, which specializes in the production of furniture inspired by the heritage of the eponymous architect, they acquired this residence in 2022.

Claves : the new guard of interior architecture experienced in the practice of the exceptional Chalet.

Drawing on its experience and its desire to design unique places, thought out down to the smallest detail, Iconic House chose to collaborate on the project with Claves. The Parisian interior architecture agency founded by Laure Gravier and Soizic Fougeront combines high standards and joie de vivre to create sensitive places.

The 650 square meter Chalet, to be renovated, reveals the vision of refined luxury, meeting the expectations of a demanding clientele. It houses seven en-suite rooms designed in the spirit of hotel suites. It offers a wide range of uses and services (large, friendly living spaces, heated indoor swimming pool with wellness area, professional kitchen, ski room, media room, tasting room and wine cellar, etc.). From the attic to the basement, the building is used in its entirety. The chalet is pleasant to live in, whatever the season or whatever the number of people accommodated. Finally, the living spaces lend themselves to the organization of large receptions. The stated ambition is to restore the splendor of the “chalet de l’inconnu”.
